  1. Last week, I asked my American Government class, “What is the meaning of Veterans Day?”

    Only one student knew the correct answer.

    Only one! In a group of “patriotic homeschoolers.”

    Now, that one student really knew the topic and held forth, making the other students feel inadequate.

    I wonder what the result would have been if I had polled the parents. Do they know? I have my doubts.

    Sad — tragic, really.

    In years past, about five years ago, several students knew the answer to “What is the meaning of Veterans Day?”
