I went to my four-year-old's parent teacher conference this week and was shocked to hear how our kids are being taught at school. His teacher told me that they had rules they had to follow when educating these small children. She said it was a system called Outcome Based Education and she was forced to follow the curriculum if she wanted to keep her job of 14 years. She said she didn't agree with it but that she really had no choice.
What can we expect for our future? What kind of labor force are we going to produce? How are we supposed to compete with other countries when are kids are being taught to be lazy?
Joe Moody's campaign has been reminding El Pasoans over and over that he was given the "Freshmen Of The Year" award. It sounds like a credible accolade. But is it?
All of these Representatives have gone home to their home districts and have been showing off their pretty little stickers to their constituents in attempt to get themselves re-elected. Knowing what I know now, I look at the "awards" like I look at my child's sticker when he comes homes from school, as something worthless because he didn't have to do anything to earn it.
