relations as they apply to the US these days.
"As Diane Ravitch, the education historian and professor put it, "How utterly vapid to expect that adolescents want to see themselves in everything they read, as if they have no capacity to imagine worlds that extend beyond their own limited experience, as if they will be emotionally undone by learning about the world as it is. How tedious it is for young people to find that school is an exercise in narcissism rather than an opportunity to discover the mysteries of time, space, and human nature."
"The method could be dismissed as a passing fad in schools desperate to hold on to students who'd rather be elsewhere. But it's also the norm in college humanities departments, where critical skills receive their last rites, and it's the way most news and information is packaged to mass audiences. If it isn't "news you can use," if it doesn't affect your life, it can't possibly be important. It's the way most Americans understand their world. What a small-minded world it is becoming."
But a curious source. The Daytona Beach News-Journal? Shouldnt they be more concerned with surf alerts, tanning tips and spring break reports?
