Dear Ethyl I was reading this article the other day called Finding Your Own Voice1 I think it was by some lady named Anne Lamott I found it truly offensive She talks about her students and how they will pattern themselves around successful writers they enjoy reading Then she says she hopes her students will learn to open new doors in search of their true self The nerve of this lady She goes on and on about searching those dark deep smelly chasms hidden deep within ourselves and how here more likely than not we will find our inspiration and our true voice Does she not remember what she learned in grade school Does she not understand the good traditional values of the American Education System or of American Society I believe she has forgotten completely of what the true and inspirational definition of conformity is Does she not understand that we must pattern ourselves around those who are successful and maybe just maybe one day we will get a glimpse of what success and all the glory that follows Without conformity where would our education system be Where would our country be Why I remember in my days teachers didnt put up with some of these hair-brained schemes and ideas that are let loose in the classrooms today Ive even heard that some teachers are letting students choose what they want to write And when they want to write it I can hardly believe that Next thing you know they will be letting students choose what classes they wish to take God help us then the country will really be in shambles Yes in my day there were rigid rules of writing stylized by a few great writers one must adhere to before they were to attempt writing on their own Our teacher gave us topics of good people such as presidents Good role models like Richard Nixon Harry S Truman god bless
