I tend not to take my blog into political or religious topics, though I do express some of my own emotional and logical processing through the filter of my spiritual perspective.
But what I see going on in California with regard to legislation affecting our educational system is worse now than when my children’s mother and I decided in the 1980s that we should home school our kids for their benefit and to provide for them healthy socialization.
After reading the analysis of California Bill SB 1437, it is in my opinion way out of line, highly and irresponsibly agenda driven, and shows disregard for wise spending of taxpayers’ money.
I am opposed to SB 1437 after reading it and its revisions. There is way to much effort going into making sure no one gets hurt feelings — which is an exercise in futility as well as a bottomless money pit — and not enough effort educating in things that matter. Money and time are being wasted, and our students are graduating dumber and less knowledgeable than ever. Let’s get back to educating, not indoctrinating.
