In school we teach the importance of the equal sign. Our equations must balance whether in math, or chemistry or physics. Over in Language Arts the progressives teach that fair and equal are synonyms. In order to be fair we must be equal: equal schools, equal outcomes etc.
But alas, America's schools are failing. Our kids understand "equal" in math and science, but we have not been successful in teaching the synonyms of equal and fair. Just watch Steven Crowder try to apply the lesson.
Happy Halloween everyone!
The state oversight of private and parochial education is likely to increase slowly, especially along the lines of uniformity in statistics and records, sanitary inspection, common standards of work, and the enforcement of the attendance laws. In particular, the attitude toward the control of the child is likely to change. Each year the child is coming to belong more and more to the state, and less and less to the parent. - Ellwood P.
