      very enlightening.
      as I was unfamiliar with the methodology of 'phonics' I had a suspicion that it was drill oriented and excluded developing critical thinking in favor of learning by rote. this fits precisely with the conservative mindset of a fixed and unquestioned belief system handed down by trusted and learned elders that must be adhered to or strict punishment doled out.
      if you are interested in more writing on that mindset, I recommend seeking out any of the articles by Dr. George Lakoff. Although his focus is on 'framing' or messaging techniques he clearly describes the world view and mindset and how different it is on 'the other side.'

      Know the know?
      thanks again.

      no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.
