What do parents know?

 

August 31, 2023



To The Eagle:

Regarding the school board candidate interviews, I would ask if there is such a thing as science, or such a thing as history? Ever wonder what these really are? Do they represent some abstraction of reality and worthy process? Are they are some component of the sum-of-us, of what it means to be human, what it means to be moral, ethical, practical? My sense is some ‘school issues’ represent ‘parents’ talking to themselves out loud about subjects of which they know little. Regarding my home schooling experience, I came to find that my parents suffered from bigotry, encouraged inappropriate sexual behavior, and at the same time could not wait for me to go to school (both public and Sunday).
