(Tim) Miss South Carolina was competing for Miss Teen USA. During the competition, she was asked, "Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans cannot locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?"
She responded, “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and uh I believe that our education like, such as South Africa, and uh the Iraq everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should uh our education over here in the U.S., should help the U.S., uh er should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.”
So like, was this young woman homeschooled? Private schooled? Public schooled? Taylor (our youngest) and Lizzie both are at public school this year and doing fine. Through the years, we've used a combination of private (Christian), home, and public schooling for our children. Depending on circumstances, personalities, and gifts, Mary Lee and I believe each of these options can be the proper place for children of the covenant to get their book learning.
