Einsteins, Franciscans, Carmelites, & dirt
I liked the autumn essay you posted until I got to the words "the lumbering yellow school bus" where students are whisked off to be "dehumanized, demythologized " and groomed "to live a meaningless life." I work in a Title 1 (high poverty) school -- you know, like Uvalde. Our students are loved, known by name and lifted up. For many, it is their safe place. Essays like these do a great disservice to the many, many Christians who work in public schools because of a call to serve all God's children. To paint such a dismal picture of the place I work is, to me, against the "magnanimous spirit" this website says it wants to espouse.
