Educating our children through fear.
I just read a shining example of how our education system is working for our children from The Odessa American and The New American. The story starts with a 9 year old boy seeing a movie: Lord of the Rings – The Battle of the five Armies. Harmless. The boy then brings a ring to school, still no harm done at this point. And then apparently copying the movie, the boy told one of his classmates that he “could make him disappear” with the ring. What is the problem with that?
