As a public school teacher...

As a teacher in the public school, I would say that the emphasis on technology will someday perhaps get rid of the need for the localized public school. The only problem is that then there will truly be one message without any questioning of that message, short of involved parents.

As I teach, I try to make the subject matter as interesting as possible...and I love teaching Social Studies, asking the children how many slave Lincoln actually did free (zero), what were the British coming for (confiscation of weapons and capture of persons of interest), why we have checks and balances (like why one branch is (supposed) to declare war while another simply executes it.
