My letter to SC representative
David J. Mack, III"Option 3, Non-mandatory testing is allowing myself and so many other who are dedicated to bright engaged citizen creation to provide a rich and thorough classical education to our children, our and your most valuable resources.
We need our freedoms to provide society a rich diversity of educated peoples to help stabilize our future world. Teaching to the test will only create a huge time suck and a barrier to the reality - life is not a test, it require inventive innovative, creative, outside the box thinking.
Where is that thinking future going to come from?"
Maybe it sounds arrogant? Maybe it has run on sentences... I don't know if I would change a word of it. I just spent the last 4 days battling Norovirus in all it's 20-min-between-spells glory and Rushing a child to the ED for a head injury/fall.
Rumor has it the bill has already failed in committee, but I wanted my 2 cents out there. I want to participate and be a voice. Maybe our democracy is terribly flawed, even broken... but in our times of internet access at the ready isn't is beautiful that I can Hear about an issue, Find my representative and Write a passionate letter and Participate all in 15 minutes.
Maybe I'm farting in the wind, but somebody is bound to smell it. I love the smell of democracy at 11 in the evening.
