So…..I would like to thank a small group of people out there who have takenupon themselves to make sure none of our children are able to excel, stand out or otherwise be different from the their peers. These consideratefolks have appointed themselves as the politically correct shepherds of what they obviously see as a flock with a tendency to stray. They havedecided that the best way to keep them there little sheep from wondering away from the main herd and perhaps displaying individuality is to crush the very first sparks of that individuality as it rears it’s ugly head. Andwhere might that be? In our schools, of course.
