READN’, RITIN’AND RITHMATIC

 

Every morning my 1st grade teacher,  “Mrs. Geise” an ancient old lady, would read  from the Bible. No one objected to the reading or the pledge of allegiance that followed. It was just something we would say at the beginning of each school day.

Other than the Bible reading and Pledge of Allegiance, we focused on the three “R’s”  (reading, ritin’ and rithmatic). It seemed we were being taught the things we would need to know in order to make it through life successfully. We were not being taught to be good little socialists, Zoroastrians, or Baptists. We were being taught the skills necessary to keep our free-market economy functioning.
