  • Yes I do agree with that statement - but it doesn't translate directly to a "classroom", more everything we teach our children as a community will be the way the world is run later. Since the U.S.A. is so extremely divided and unwilling to do anything besides our specific chosen way that has been spoon fed to us rather than research it - yep, it scares me.

  • Yes and no. I agree that what we learn when we are younger can shape how we feel about our world, but when we get out into the world and have practical experience, this is when I feel the real 'shaping' takes place. I also feel that past generations (long past) had to grow up faster than the last couple of generations. JMO.
