About eight years ago I wrote a short essay about how education has remained largely unchanged, viagra usa aside from the introduction of mass education after the arrival of the printing press, tadalafil since the Pyramids. This is a particularly bitter pill for me because I was one of those “square peg in a round hole,” “achievement seems to be below ability” students decades ago.
