Secrets of Body Language and Math ed wrong direction

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/secrets-of-body-language/

People make decisions based on body language.  According to the show over 90 percent of the decision to buy a car is the salesman’s body language.   Not sure if that is true, but suppose some truth to it.

So math ed follows No Child Left Behind, High Stakes Testing, Reach to the Ceiling (or whatever Arne calls it), etc. because of someone’s body language in a meeting.

The reason we don’t learn the Peano Axioms in K-6 is no one selling it has the right body language?

N. J. Wildberger has good body language it seems to me in his videos. But apparently that is not enough.

So something about his body language is holding back Peano Axioms?  So everyone instead stays stupid?  Because Bush and Arne Duncan have such great body language, they stick with the current curriculum?

Keith Devlin is against teaching Peano Axioms and recursion in K-6. So maybe his body language is better and he keeps it from happening.

Goldman guys have better body language, so the bailout scam was done for Goldman and the rest of us are left holding the bag.  And we buy this because they have good body language?

People, as Ross Perot would say, wake up. We can do better than that.
