Daily Republic Letters: General education not for everyone

Earl D. Olson


Have you every wondered why our schoolchildren are required to take reading, writing, math, history, art, social studies and science in the public school system?

As parents it is accepted without question because it has always been that way. If you ask a teacher or administrator the question of why, they will tell you it is a part of “general education” or “core knowledge” and will attempt to tell you that you need it to be successful in life. But most of the time the answer is, “to get into college.”
