What a terrific post! I was amazed when, a few years ago, I discovered that Noah Webster the Dictionary Guy, was a "founder." Boy, I had such a lousy education as a kid. This stuff is so thrilling to know!

Great post! Sorry, I didn't do the FFQF this week, due to the holidays. I'll make up for it next week. :)

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Stay tuned for next month's theme!

I did miss this one, Herky, but it's a great post. I fear, alas, that it is much too late to retake the raising of our children back from the government. There are exceptions, of course, but government-run "schools" are so ingrained that I don't think we'll ever get rid of them.

Hello Jean. Glad you got a chance to read and to comment.

Yeah, I don't think we will ever root out the whole reeking system. But at least we can encourage others to jump out of the sinking ship.

I guess the public "school" system no longer deserves to be called the child of Benjamin Rush. Believe it nor not, in the old'n days, he was called the "father of American public schools." Not anymore. Oh well.

Thanks for leaving your comment and your thoughts. Happy weekend!
