Reading – Everyone should be able to read. If not, we would be back in the middle ages with only our political leaders and the church translating for us. Reading cursive should be mandatory since most of our leaders and church officials are pretty flowery. We should also be taught how to read between the lines. Essential for living in todays world.
Writing – I agree that everyone should be able to write. How else could we communicate on LJ’s?
‘Rithmetic – All students should go back to being forced to memorize tables and formulas.
History – We need to know why we are right and the rest of the world is wrong. How else but through indoctrination?
Geography – Ask any youngster the location of a country or the capitol. Again, memorization to the rescue.
English – Nothing but memorization here. Too many rules and nonsensical things not to have memorization. I’m including spelling here. We are notorious for our bad spelling. Also, we shouldn’t be able to make new words unless or course you are a scientist and discover something never before seen or experienced.
Nuns – All students should be taught by nuns. That way all of the above would have a chance of succeeding. No more “new” this or that. The old ways are the best ways. Rulers allowed when herding the little terrors through a school day…
Just my thoughts. You can all have your own thoughts but eventually you will see the widsom of mine…
-- 2014 will be a different year...at least for me it will.
