Another Aspect

The Educational system, as a subject for editorial criticism, has recently gained in popularity. Not wishing to exert our individuality, we will also "join the bandwagon",

One group seems to have emerged relatively unscathed by the attempts to place the blame for our youth's alleged position on the edge of impending intellectual disaster. Criticism has readily been extended to the secondary schools, college and to teachers. However, no guilt ever seems to be attributed to parents. There certainly are situations where parents allow their prejudices, personal comfort or their inability to understand to suppress the intellectual curiosity of their children. Certainly, some of the responsibility for the lack of scientific talent must be traced directly to the parents. The parent who will permit his offspring to amass a nature collection is indeed rare. How many will tolerate bottles of Drosphila around the house, or a preserved cat or fetal pig in the refrigerator? Still fewer parents encourage the use of the blender as a homogenator, or the pressure cooker as an autoclave. Admittedly, their are occasions when the home may look as though it were invaded by vestigials from another planet; periodcially, it may exhale an unsavory bouquet. But what comparison is there between a little discomfort to one's olfactory senses and the encouragement of a budding mind? Before these parents expend time and energy seeking reforms of other aspects of the educational system, they should be willing to indulge in serious introspection.
