Read in June, 1993

I have been looking my old journals, in part to see what books I have read previously. This was one of the books I was reading when I was about to start my first public school job many years ago. At the time, I wrote in my journal:

>>It was an interesting book. The book is a collection of essays about the relations between church, state, and schools.<<

I did not agree with some things, and now that I am experienced as a teacher, I am probably not as idealistic as I was then. I certainly don't see things as black and white anymore. For instance, I did not agree flat out on the issue of tax credits. Today, I think the issue is a bit more complex, which goes to show with experience comes a little reflection. Amazing how time can make you change as you learn. Overall, it is not a terribly memorable book.
