Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - February 22, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
These Days by Georg e. Soke Civ Vcci Imp Lati Vegi Idanne records in relationship to the child parents can play a role for which there is no substitute that is if parents temper natural affection with some degree of intelligent objectivity. It May be in a Parent s heart that his son should stand on the stage in Carnegie Hall and play the violin like a Fritz Kreisler or a m ischia Elman but the boy wants to be a Ball player and ends up As a bus Driver. To there is tile father who believes that Stern discipline Bing bang and Don t you use lipstick around Here solves All problems. As a matter of fact. Such rigid discipline often ill conceived produces Only hate and a sense of inferiority the Golden mean still remains a sound Rule for dealing with other human beings even ones own children. I lie or Hue s in this country have e need to usurp Many of the functions of the parents and one of tile guideposts to this is the Quot accumulative guidance which m any schools use and which Are Desi Ped to provide a key to the mind and character of the child Lins includes the aptitude and i q tests. There would be nothing wrong in this ii the records were available to parents so that they could know As much about their children As the teachers believe they do. The aptitude tests May he some guide for instance to what the child ought to do at College or in life it might show that he has no aptitude for being a lawyer but he might do astonishingly Well As a Salesman. Or it might show that a girl will not succeed As an executive but that she might do extraordinarily Well As a Mother hut. Nothing is shown to the parents. The record is for teachers Only. The Parent might be guiding Hie child in one direction the teachers in another. Such a Connie is unnecessary. Parent teach ers meeting rarely accomplish what they set out to do. The parents never Rise in such meetings there Are always a noisy few who waste time with their endless mappings on general subjects. The it. Pleasant news. N to i whim ii it.

In once instance i showed a group of girls from primary sources that what a teacher told them is literally untrue it was a sad thing to do but i preferred to establish the truth. I asked the girls to require the Leacher to produce contrary documentation from primary sources to maintain her position. They refused. But their reason for refusing was a bad one they were afraid of bad Marks. In other words they had no regard for their teachers intellectual integrity. A voting Man i know got a bad Mark for expressing an opinion which differed from his professors in College. Is we come Back to the Quot accumulative guidance record Quot which teachers Are forbidden to show parents the general excuse being that Johnny will compete with Bill when their parents Tell them what these records show and that such Competition is bad even in a competitive society. Tile Quot accumulative guidance record Quot seeks As much information about the child As possible. But it must be startlingly unscientific if tile parents Are not included in the plot to gather information. For instance some children Are regarded As Lazy because they Are slow Why Are they slow is there a family record of Low blood pressure or Low blood sugar none of these conditions Are supposed to be hereditary but Low blood pressure does show up in lines of families. A la St As the Parent knows Little about what the teacher s backgrounds Are so the teachers know Little about the child a because the teacher does not know the parents. I often look up the backgrounds of teachers who attract my attention by what they say. Like most parents i never do anything about what i find. We Are a cowardly but comfortable people who Sutler from let Well enough alone. But the Day will come when parents take Over the schools which belong to them Ltd san Diego Cal fins the Navy launched an investigation today into a plane crush and explosion which killed three men and injured two others aboard the aircraft Carrier Shangrila off the California coast.
