The Polk County Board of Commissioners would like to increase the “required school age” from seven to six. (Educators love to garble syntax to make themselves sound important and programming.)
Asking the state to lower the school age stemmed from a Polk County Child Protection Team report presented to commissioners in April that indicated two children may have avoided neglect earlier if the required school age was lower.
No attempt was made to count the children that may have avoided relative moralism, value neutrality, Marxism, historical revisionism, new math, new morality, sensitivity training, celebration of failure and mediocrity, BMI anxiety, psychotropic addictions, psychobabble, and a host of other maladies resulting from enrolling too early.
