Let’s get this straight.
Laconia area Marital Czar Michael Garner has offered up one 10 year old home-schooled little girl to the monolith that is public education – as a burnt offering I suppose.
Czar Garner’s comment, a part I like copied in part below, about the young lady must be unsettling to government run schools all over America:
She is…“well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising, and intellectually at or superior to grade level” and that “it is clear that the home schooling...has more than kept up with the academic requirements of the...public school system,”
Ouch! (Wet towel in face of public school.)
Now a NH Judge, Lucinda SADler, is ordering the girl on to public indoctrination of the judge’s personal choosing instead of letting the parents raise their apparently well adjusted offspring without government assistance. She needs to learn about global warming, acid rain, and that Nelson Mandela should have been an American President.
This gets me to thinking about the plight of some poor people in New Hampshire who do not mix well with others – never have, possess extremely stunted social skills, keep to their own or only associate with their mother, and live in a world of books and over-intellectualization – which is a form of madness all its own. Maybe this resulted from being in one house alone for years and years with very little human contact or interaction. I am not so sure from the compelling case Czar Garner delivered.
It may finally be time for me to admit that there might be a slim possibility, although I doubt it, that mixing with other 10 year olds, especially the kind you find trapped in some public schools, may actually help a very small percentage of hermit-like creatures and prevent them from growing up isolated from the rest of the world.
Look what happened to David Souter.
