O'Neill's Debate on Education
Students are not getting the Basic Knowledge needed
today due to the poor upbringing and lack of respect for the
need of education.
In O'Neills editorial his reason for this was because
the students as a whole did not want their ignorance
exposed. However, he forgot to include that teachers are
just as ignorant as the student. Give a teacher the
same test and see hoe much they remember about what they we

assume that because a person can't remember who the 31st
president was, that they don't have the basics of gobble

Lets Examine another quote from O'Neill's editorial in
his opine Charie Chaplin a classic movie star, and that

if the students didn't watch old TV shows on the late
night TV channels then how would they know of Charlie?
They don't cover a class in classic television.
that question would be unfair to pit on the test. O'Neill's

as him. Charles Darwin did not create gravity but he did
believe in evolution. The concept that we were originated
from organs to monkeys then humans. In church we stray away
from that kind of talk 'that is the devil trying to score
your mind' that's what they would say.
O'Neill says 'I broke the rules of this time-honored
gam when I presented my English-composition students with an
86 question test the first day of class.' Know that all
students think of doing the first day of class.
Concentrating on a 86 question test is...
