When I was in high school during my junior and senior year because I was on track for the college prep diploma I was eligible to take 1 class per semester at the local university for free.

Here, if you double majored in CS and math, it'd be a liberal arts degree. How's that for confusing? ;)

< I HATED math and science classes. I still think it was good for me to take those classes. It's good for me to have a basic understanding of biology and chemistry. Of how the scientific method works. To learn about logical reasoning in math class.

I don't care if Samantha hates reading literature with a passion. I'd still like her to have some basic knowledge of literary criticism.>


I guess where you and I differ is that I see that having to take those things in high school is one thing.

I think I get where canadatina is coming from. There is an undertone here that a liberal arts degree is the standard from which kids either do or don't deviate. In some posts I sense a disappointment if the kids deviate from it. In yours I sense that you would be perfectly ok with liza deviating from it. But in either case their is an unquestioned assumption that the liberal arts degree is what kids are deviating from, and canadatina is questioning that assumption.

As a history/German major who did take Calculus 1, I hope that Samantha doesn't suffer through liberal arts requirements because *I* think it's a good idea. I hope that *she* thinks it's a good idea to take as many different kinds of classes as possible. If anything, I wish I had taken more science classes in college.

If we didn't live almost a country apart, I'd suggest a playdate. ;)

ETA: Samantha's 17mo now. I really need to update my signature. I think she's about 7 mo in that picture.
