Another definition of blogging fame

I’ve always wanted to be a bonus assignment on someone’s homework. Thanks, Ms. Jones, whoever you are.

    Mrs. Jones’ 6th grade class, today, a column in “Weekly Reader” tomorrow. 😉

    If it’s an assignment out of Spring Woods High School, it’s got to be good. You know, both Ted Poe and Roger Clemens graduated from Spring Woods…

    Hrmpf. Congrats. But I want equal time. Not that sending someone to your site, Kuff, is like screening Michael Moore movies for a captive class. But you do have a viewpoint, albeit always expressed with civility and eloquence.

    To be more clear: I approve of encouraging students to become aware of politics and other current news topics. I also approve of acquainting kids with weblogs as an alternative to mainstream media sources. Finally, I also very definitely approve of this teacher’s choice of your blog, Kuff — I can’t think of a better one, especially for Houston-area kids.

    I do think teachers ought to avoid partisan indoctrination, however, or anything that remotely smacks of that. Including a blog that comes at topics from a right-of-center slant for balance would be appropriate, I think. And I’d have made the converse (obverse?) argument if it’d been only my blog that had been in an extra-credit assignment.

    I don’t think this is a big deal. I wouldn’t picket the school board if it were my kids involved. Just thinking out loud, so to speak.

    Last scattered thought: I know you didn’t solicit the link or participate in the teacher’s decision, Kuff. I’m not criticizing you, nor really even Ms. Jones, so much as suggesting something that I think you and probably she might agree with if you’d thought of it first.
