Absolutely not. Can't let the damn terrorists win again. Just Obama trying to push more Islam on us like he always does.

It takes an hour to teach third graders Roman numerals. I think it's worth the effort.

40% of Republicans ( currently)

4% would be too many.

It is a good idea to include basic understanding of foreign languages in school as they can comprehend that easier when their brains are developing, so it will be easier to build on it in the future.

Not that it matters, as this is a kind of important Q, so thanks for posting it, but it was posted by kermie about a month after I found this place. So, over 1.5 years ago now.. Tine for a refresher.

Where did RJ inspire this? I looked through his poll history and didn't see anything.

It was from 2013, that's why it can't be seen in his history. It's too far back

The comments on RJ's poll are gold!!!

One person said, "To anyone who voted yes: When have you ever used an Arabic numeral EVER in your life? Probably NEVER. So shut up, and stop whining that some people don't want to have their kids learn useless information."

What type of numerals should they teach rons?

08/10/15 9:45 am

Arabic and letters in cursive as it was meant to be. Just thought they contributed other techniques.

Probably

08/10/15 1:49 pm

You're assuming they don't know the number system. Many vote no because they can, or don't like the question, or there is no skip vote option.

You do know that I said "probably" in my comment.
