IOWA AGRICULTURE PERFORMANCE DWARFS K-12 SCHOOLS

8-11-17

Greetings, Greg Thessen, Director USDA NASS Upper Midwest Regional Office, Harry Hillaker, State Climatologist, and all--

This post and the post on  DEFECTIVE STUDENT THEORY PLAGUES IA BOARD OF EDUCATIONAL EXAMINERS  is FYI.

Iowalive’s recent venture from K-12 schools to USDA agriculture (forecasting corn and soybean yields. http://www.iowalive.net/iacropyieldforecasts2017.htm  and http://www.iowalive.net/junevsaugustforecasts2017.htm —which heavily involves weather) is a transition from the school sewer to the agriculture sublime.  Greg, you  and State Climatologist Harry Hillaker helped Iowalive get to the agriculture sublime! 

K-12 educators have their thumbs on the scale and that’s just for openers.  IOWA SCHOOLS INFLATE 'A' GRADES AND STUDENT PROFICIENCIES , HOW & WHY IOWA ADOPTED THE  LOWEST STUDENT PROFICIENCY STANDARD IN MIDWEST  

Farmers fight Iowa’s weather and are operating at 65% efficiency, file:///C:/IOWALIVE/deriveopeff.htm .  Iowa K-12 schools are operating at 38% efficiency (and waste at least $1.8 billion per year) and ‘educators’ blame the kids and get pay raises for doing so. 

The average Integrity Index Score, for the Iowa Farm Bureau, on a scale of  0 to 1,000 tops, is 470 compared to the Iowa State Education Association (teacher’s union)  now at 4.   http://www.iowalive.net/integrityderivation.htm     THE UGLY IMPACTS ON IOWANS--ISEA TEACHER UNION--IA. PUBLIC ENEMY # 1

There are some professionals in education who assist Iowalive net workers and if we name and praise them, they will be ostracized by educrats.

Thank you very much for your patience and professional assistance—as Iowalive net workers learn more about forecasting weather and grain yields!! 

Reasonably accurate corn and soybean yield forecasts, made in January for the upcoming Iowa growing season, might be in sight.   USDA's forecasting expertise is paving the way for Iowalive's forecasts.  IOWALIVE'S JUNE CORN FORECAST WITHIN 7% OF USDA's AUGUST FORECAST

It’s a joy to be closely observing etc. the performance and professionalism of Iowa agriculture!!
