I can’t let this go! The opinion page on March 3 contained some doozies:
Bill O’Reilly tried to have us believe that banks are holding on to their billions because Barack Obama is a social justice president. Who believes that; there must be a hundred reasons for the bank’s failure to make loans.
In her column, Mande Wilkes stated that there is no need for teachers – even good teachers – and holds that home-schooling is the way to go. She suggests that parents, or a parent, be paid to teach their children. I wonder how many parents know enough to teach an elementary school program; not to mention high school. Not 1 in 10 would be my guess.
Also I would ask Ms. Wilkes: What happens to a society where people have not had role models who have taught them everything and inspired them for the future?
Ms. Wilkes implied that there is something wrong with having order and discipline in school rooms: why so? I don’t believe in attacks on our public schools; they should be supported in every way possible. There are not many people who can afford private schooling for their children.
