Replying to LO6870 --


Halfway through your post I was thinking why more of this 'making schools
wrong' when you talked about football announcement over the PA. However
when you concluded

>Why then do football, and other sports, and the prom, and socializing
with friends, etc, really matter more for most students? Because they are
primarly about DOING, which ultimately is what really counts.

Agreed. Why beat up on schools - which is an impression I got from some
discussion on the thread - when it is society's dominant values that drive
schools to be whatever they are.
