Logic is sorely needed

Sunday, February 12, 2012

To the Editor:

I tend to approach our students' educational decisions in a logical manner.

Sixty years ago at Indiana University, I took a one-hour course in logic.

The final examination test of that course was one question: "What is logic?"

We were given the exam booklet and were to turn in our answers in two weeks.

I had my answer finished in five days by working night and day.

And I was one of a few who received a big "A" on that exam.

I learned from this that I tend to address student issues logically.

As a school board member, I have moved in the direction of logic in answers to planning issues.

I tend to question school board members who allow themselves to be motivated by factions in our student's educational planning.

The present direction of our student's education in our corporation is denying logic as a vital factor and is moving onward in an unreasonable fashion.

Students, parents and public members must rise up and demand that logic be mortared into the foundation of our students' education.
