Did you know?


This presentation was originally created by a teacher at my husband's alma mater, Arapahoe High School (a local Denver school.)

Thanks to my sister in law for sharing it with me.

A couple of facts that are missing from this newer version of the presentation (that were in the older version):

The 25% of the population in China with the highest IQ's...
Is greater than the total population of North America.
In India it’s the top 28%.
Translation for teachers: They have more honors kids than we have kids.

If you took every single job in the US and shipped it to China...China would still have a labor surplus.

I found these facts particularly interesting as the current conversation at work is should we outsource all our software development to India or China? The company we currently use is in India – and they in turn outsource the work we give them to China. So why not cut out the middle man?
