The Alliance for the Separation of School and State has notified me, via their email newsletter, that they are now hosting an education blog. There are a couple of new entries, 2 of which are Easy Questions.
Here is Easy Question #1:
Do you agree with this statement?
I don’t want my children fed or clothed by the state, but if I had to choose, I would prefer that to their being educated by the state. – Max Victor Belz
Feel free to comment as well as agree or disagree.
Here is Easy Question #2:
This one is a two-parter.
What was your school experience: public, private, home, or mix (give an idea of the mix)?
Do you feel that your school experience improved you morally, damaged you, or had no impact?
As always, feel free to comment beyond simple answers.
I thought that they were very good questions. The first really is an easy question for me to answer and that is: I do not want the government providing ANY of those things to my children - it is my job to do that.
The second question I thought was an easy question, but then I realized that I really needed to think about that one some more. I started thinking a little too deeply about how much my family upbringing shaped me vs. the government's education system. This will take some in-depth analysis. Possibly a Venn Diagram. Maybe a spider diagram thingy. Yikes - maybe not that last one! Grizzly Mama is just too tired for that spidery nonsense!
I was just curious to see how you might answer these questions.
If the spirit moves you - pop on over to the new blog to answer the questions. Or I would be pleased as punch if you would leave your answer in my comments.
