    i'm a massive fan of what's called the "liberal arts" education. I went to a liberal arts college and I think that i benefited very much indeed from being exposed to a wide range of subjects. but that is my belief system and my intellectual bent. plenty of Americans don't care to learn about the beauties of the Baroque era Fugue, but would benefit more instead from learning how to be a welder or master mechanic. this ought to be an option that is open to them, just as the liberal arts option should be available to those who would take advantage of it. parents know their children best, and should be able to direct their children accordingly.

    Other, it's not Conservative or Liberal. It's Statist, and has been for at least 20 years.

    How does one have a statist education?

    Tell me which kind you went to. I want my kids to go to the opposite.

    It's pretty simple. Teach kids that they have a responsibility to everyone other than themselves, that they shouldn't question authority, and that their leaders are smarter than they are. That their individual rights aren't worth a hill of beans, and that they should shut up and do what they're told. That's neither Liberal nor Conservative, but it's being taught right now.

    One would think that learning the alphabet or the multiplication table was neither liberal nor conservative but then we remember that liberals don't want those darned tests. You know, paper and pencil tests where they demonstrate they've learned the subject. Liberals prefer creativity like 6x6=54. "Very good answer, Johnny."

    Alfons there's still time to get a real education, I know you went to a liberal school in your youth which is why you use the wrong word sometimes or fail to make the subject and verb agree in your sentances, along with a host of other problems. But, what you need to remember is that we all start somewhere and its not where we start its where we end up!

    I don't want political ideology in schools. Nor do I want religious ideology in schools.

    For the record, standardized tests have become a joke. I have no problem with a subject test, but these yearly exams students must take to prove they meet state requirements have led teachers to do nothing but teach how to pass the test, since their pay raises rely heavily on student success. These ridiculous programs are hindering learning.

    gosh if only there were some way that the government could allow you to control the education dollars allotted to your child so that you could direct them to a school that had neither...... what would we call such a system?
