LOST MY VOTE

Filed at 5:59 am under by dcobranchi

Home educator and perpetual presidential candidate “Average Joe” Schriner has some good ideas– reduce the debt, reduce pollution, find a way to reduce violence in the streets. This one, though, is too out there for me:

“We think education could be more creative and a lot more effective. We would like to see one-third of the curriculum be volunteer work out in the community. The rationale is that I want our children to learn as much about helping others as they do about math, science and English,” he said.

I can’t vote for anyone calling for compelled volunteerism. Sorry, Joe. Get back to me in 2012.
