132. Well again, I reiterate
I am not in favour of vouchers or privitisation in education. I state as much unequivocally in my post. ulysses is not in favour of them, he's made that point both in this thread, and a good many times in the past.

The paragraph you've exerpted does not propose, encourage or lean toward vouchers or privitisation. I suggest instead that during the course of our lives all individuals hear and are exposed to a great deal of information and misinformation. It is a losing proposition to believe that we can police all the misinformation, myths and legends, crackpot theories, hearsay, rumours, amazingly bad information regarding sexuality, etc. to which a developing mind is heir.

What we can do, is to appropriately fund, support and involve ourselves with our schools; all of our schools and all of our students. If the education is excellent, the love of learning is present, analytical thinking is encouraged, then it won't matter if a crackpot or two make their way into the life of a young person. It will not matter if they're told 'Old Wives Tales' instead of good infomation about sexuality, - they'll know how to think for themselves, find the answers to their questions and evaluate information.
