Anyway… The most notable thing about the post – other than the comments from her really scary readers – is the first paragraph in which Schlafly gives a litany of crazy, kooky fads from the past:
There's been self-esteem, new math, whole language, New Age, outcome-based education, school-to-work, mental health screening, school-based clinics, global education, diversity, multiculturalism, and early childhood education.Okay, wait a minute. First of all, I missed where they had New Age in school. Too bad, ‘cause that could have been interesting.
But self esteem? Mental health screening? Early childhood education? I wasn’t aware that these were “fads.” Silly me.
As for diversity, I guess Schlafly is just waxing nostalgic for those happy days before Brown v. Board of Education when everyone knew which schools they had to go to.
By the way, I can only venture into Townhall for short periods at a time. However, I’m working on increasing my tolerance for bad logic and gross distortion. Bear with me, and I’ll bring you more news as I’m able.
