|High School Graduate|
At a recent high school graduation, an honors student receives recognition for a music and science scholarship. A parent in the row behind mine, says, "That's interesting, but, what you do with music and science? Nothing, I guess."
If we need another example of anti-intellectualism in America - there you go.
Or, it could be just ignorance. Legitimately, maybe she did not how music and science can inter-relate.
However she sussed out the situation for herself, it was still a dim reminder to me to of how much my job is often looked at askance - or in a larger view - the often conflicted view Americans have of education.
