As one who has worked in education for 30 years I share your concern. The problem lies in the philosophy of education today. Instead of stressing academic achievement, the idea is to make the student "feel good about himself." A child is allowed to progress at his own rate, which means he can move ahead if he feels like it. Discipline is at the lowest ebb "SIMUN BLANUU GREGORIO Y SU ANGEL" ._ v ...

Teachers must spend valuable teaching time maintaining order in the classroom. Memorizing facts is considered, old hat. Competition and rivalry are said to be damaging because they "create pressure." Grades are "bad" because they can be hard on a child's ego. Our schools are geared to the non- achiever. The result is mediocrity. In our day we learned how'to compete and cope with the world. Now students are encouraged to "do their own thing." If they don't learn anything the world is supposed to cope with THEM. Teachers are no longer the focal point'for education. They have been replaced by a fanatical preoccupation with programs. So, Ann, what can be done to get schools back to teaching children? May I suggest that parents attend local school board meetings, 'and demand that their tax dollars be spent to educate their children? Thanks for the forum. — From The Athens Of The Midwest — Madison, Wis. Dear Athens: Several teachers and principals wrote to express a similar point of view, but you said it best.

We are split right down the middle on this one and you are going to settle the argument. Sis will be married sometime in August. My folks are going to give her a beautiful wedding. It will cost a lot of money. We want everything to be perfect. The problem is my mother's brother and his wife. This uncle has a very foul mouth. He tries to get personal with every woman he talks to, family or not. He also has a serious drinking problem. My aunt is under psychiatric care and there are times when she doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Between the two of them you can never be sure of what will happen next. Some of us think they should not be invited to the wedding. Others say we MUST invite them or they will be mad at us for the rest of their lives.
