  •  I can understand that... (none)
    I went to public school, but after that went to Bible college for 3 years. Same deal there (except for the social part - there was plenty of that) - you were pretty much told what to believe. But I did get some useful critical thinking skills, including the ability to do close readings of texts. There was a group of us who got more and more annoyed with always being told what the right answer was, and ended up helping each other get a critical thinking education by figuring out how to respond in class. I know the teachers didn't much like our lack of subservience, but it was formative for me.

    Plus, there was plenty of public speaking (learning to preach), which does me just fine now in a university classroom.

    I pray to God to be rid of God. - Meister Eckhart
