Matter Theres been something stewing in my head for over two weeks now and Ive finally concluded that I need to exorcise the bothersome thoughts that keep nagging me up a chair you good old sounding board you and help me make sense out of this nonsensical world It seems theres an idea maybe even a movement sweeping the education field in our nation and it finally swept right up to the White House steps I watched in utter disbelief a few weeks ago when even our President gave an intense endorsement of a plan by a national group of educators to push for widespread use of uniforms for stu dents in public schools And you wont believe the reason You ready To cut down on violence to have a calm ing Whoa Shades of totali tarian regimentation wherever it happened before Remember Germany USSR My revulsion at this idea has noth ing to do with private schools they state up front that the uniforms required and you get to choose to send your child there or not Thats a pony of another hue But making them mandatory in public schools is tanta mount to building a world of Lets Thats where my headline question comes in Are we so naive as to think that the violence perpetrated by children can be fixed from the out side Another option While some of us seem ready even chomping at the bit to emulate the practice of the cookiecutter look by mindcontrolling gov ernments of the past its possible that another practice might be far more to copy Im talking about Does that shock you 1Okay Tell nic please whats wrong with drumming a code of ethics in dear little heads the minute they hit kinder garten Not religion or ideology just good old Golden Rule stuff Can you imagine a natkin built on the shoul ders of that generation I hear you Thats the job of par If parents are doing their jobs wheres all the violence coming from I know tets blame the TV movies society That feels we dont have to assume responsi bility But a so called bottom line forces us to admit that the job is not going to get done in too many homes whatever the reason And lest you feel hesi Elizabeth Elliott tant to place that burden on our teachers let me ask this Who has more access to our children Who cares more about how young people turn out And is there anything more noble to teach or more helpful to everyone than respecting the rights of oth ers And look at it this way those who want their kids to grow up dishonest disloyal opportunistic and totally insensitive to others to the point of violence will have an equal chance at creating unsavory human beings A wise man once Fill your life with so much sweet ness theres no room left for the bad Thats where the arts com munity service and sports come in So take that idea add it to the indoc trination one and maybe we have a chance at curbing the wild harmful results of fear and hate It couldnt hurt to try as much as it hurts not to With xxthe ABCs lets teach the BFPs Being a Good s A Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist for the HeraldZeitung
