American Elephants


Blogging Will Return! Sorry About That. by The Elephant's Child

Sorry about the light blogging. Taxes! Thought I was all done, and oops! Discovered a major mistake and had to do it all over. Done, proofread twice and once again just to be sure, mailed.

It will be nice to get back to commenting on the insanity going on. Apparently the American schooling system ranks down around 7th or 8th, and Finland has the best schooling system in the world. So what are they doing that we are not?

We are clearly deficient in history, or college students (College students!!) wouldn’t be trying to eliminate statues and names of buildings and portraits of past heroes. Who neglected to tell them that history is simply a record of what happened, valuable because it is only by looking at history that we can decide what to think and how to face the future.

They clearly have no familiarity with the past whatsoever. We’ve had surveys that may not be true that large numbers of millennials are unfamiliar with the Holocaust, and supposedly don’t know that the earth is actually round. You have to suspect that to be nonsense, but on the other hand college students clearly do not understand freedom of speech nor do they understand why one should have to listen to anyone speak with words that hurt one’s feelings.
