We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
First, getting a liberal education means you have to achieve literacy in math and at least in one science – and come to grips with the scientific method...
Was I glad to see that. Most kids today think that a liberal education does not include science and math or their particular interests does not include the sciences (I looking at you Business majors) so they take kiddie courses along the lines of "Math (or science) for Liberal Arts Majors".
I had the benefit of a liberal education cleverly disguised as a General Engineering program. You'd be amazed at what LSU (at that time) thought General Engineering contained - humanities, social sciences, literature (really - hard literature including classics) and then the hard sciences and math.
I'm fortunate that all four of my kids took the same route.
