    Jul 6 2013: IMO, Ken was stating that we have enclosed the process. That we want to keep kids inside the box. We want only one answer to the Question "Was there a lady or a tiger behind the door", was the Death of a salesman literal or figurative only one answer ... we cannot not "kill creativity" ... we can limit input ... direct the thought process ... and limit thoughts and discussions.

    Can I, at 70 years old, compare my education and school days with the students of today. Is that a fair comparison. Probably not. I am still very involved in the local school ... but I can only hear the thoughts expressed .... I will never have the "current experience".

    What inspired you to change the question?

    Be well. Bob.
