Lately, I haven’t been able to get My Hero, Zero out of my head. The classic Schoolhouse Rock song helped us learn that instead of counting on our fingers and toes we could use the power of 10 to change math completely.

Forty-three years later, Schoolhouse Rock still manages to teach, keep our toes a tapping, and gives us a nexus for pop culture. With 64 3-minute segments, Schoolhouse Rock may be one of the best educational tools we’ve ever had., but I wonder if we have anything like Schoolhouse Rock today?

    I got Six, Four legged Zoo, good times. When Saturday mornings were fun and they were still pushing the metric system.
