← Camp Offers Training Ground For Little Skeptics

First - It's excellent that there are opportunities for kids to enjoy a more interactive form of education and the challenge to stretch their minds.

However, i'd like to take a big, wild swing at the education system. The kids shouldn't have to be taught to think sceptically, as if it is some rarefied technique - it should be an integral part of any school curriculum.
Learning facts is easy, the real trick is to teach them how to go about thinking about all the available evidence in any given situation and making their own minds up.

Anyway - the more kids that are here and not at jesus camp can only be good for America.
