Childrens do learn

During his first presidential campaign, Bush — who promised to be the “education president” — once asked: “Is our children learning?”

On Wednesday, Bush seemed to answer his own question with the same kind of grammatical twist.

“As yesterday’s positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured,” he said.

    A child learns when he is presented material that he is developmentally able to understand and assimilate! Our education “powers that be” need to LEARN a lot about child development and the way in which children learn. Many of our “standards” are way too high for the developmental age of the child.

    Case in point. MToots used to take me in dark closets and make like a witch until I cried. At age 2 I would have laughed the whole time. At age 6 I wouldn't have fallen for it. At age 4, I was in a critical period for becoming traumatized for life.

    She was right on target. She's right, but not forgiven.
