Adults have experienced things children have not. Children can spot invincible ignorance and conceit in adults.

One great absurdity is to figure that student test scores say diddly about how much our children are learning for coping in their own adulthood. Let’s give up measuring educational attainment by tests rather than by the public nature of student teacher growing together as one generation learns and teaches another. It’s a global issue now, isn’t it? Love and peace--hal
