This week, The Union’s weekly columnist “Bored Georgeman” gobbles up a bunch of ink lecturing all of us on parenting. “Your children should be encouraged to take advantage of the good things childhood has to offer, but learn that their job is school and that comes before everything else: Before their Facebook page, the internet, tweeting their friends, before being popular. There will be consequences if they don’t perform up to their ability in school.”
Thanks “Bored.” Except that the internet is changing how we educate — not just communicate. After all, it is 2016, not 1956. Memo to Mr. Rogers: Find a new columnist.
