    Liberal theology is what you're dealing with among the smug, but liberation theology -- even though I'm an atheist -- is something I'll always associate with Romero and those who made similar sacrifices.  

    My folks taught for 30 years, much of that in the public school system.  Was brought up to see the value, and do, which is why the T&R.

    My sense is that all institutions and environments, all through our lives, have a threshold for being really destructive to the human spirit.  There's a point where the emotional cost goes up asymptotically, and if you can, you get out.  If you can't, you stay and are shaped in ways which are very hard to understand and take years to sort out (if ever).  I hope very much your daughter does not find school to be such a place -- and it is likely it will be fine.  But if it does become such a place for her, she may or may not recognize it as such -- I think that burden falls squarely on the adults.

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.
