There are downsides to parenting but the joys decidedly outweigh the negatives. Though when I read things like the Ontario Liberals wanting to introduce "character education" I am left to speculate how long before the state decides that parents are a failed institution and legislates us out of existence?
The Windsor Star reports:
"Premier Dalton McGuinty plans to put respect on the curriculum in Ontario schools in a bid to teach children "from the four corners of the world" a common set of values. McGuinty said the introduction of character education -- to teach respect, honesty, fairness and responsibility"
The whole arrogance of it leaves me just flabbergasted. The McGirlieman Fiberals think that they can design an educational character curriculum to teach elementary and secondary school student’s respect, honesty, fairness and responsibility. What’s next? Saddam teaching conflict resolution skills? What happens when 26% of the students fail the character educational component – will the Fiberals dumb-down the curriculum a la mathematics?
