GUEST,D PC-Where is thy sting?-'Pick a Bale of Cotton' Ban (149* d) RE: PC-Where is thy sting?-'Pick a Bale of Cotton' Ban 19 Nov 05

Someone wrote...It was a lot of power to place in the hands of an eleven year old, I'm thinking.

Kind of like how we allow parents to make the final decision about retention nowadays. There sure are MANY below grade-level readers in America's schools. If a parent wants their child to move on with their peers to the next grade level even though they are not ready, we allow them to. Parents have more control over that than teachers.

Had the father investigated with his daughter more on the song and its origins instead of passing off judgement and opinion, I'd have more respect for dogging the song. What did he teach his daughter? To immediately complain loudly to get your way?

Long live our folk heritage! Proud or ashamed, it is ours.
