Credit Where Credit is Due

I am homeschooling mama, which I love. In general, I feel disappointed in the public school system and I want to ensure that my child gets the education and social upbringing she deserves. 

But today, I was impressed with the assignment that a friend's son brought home from school. He was asked to interview 5 people. The interview only consisted of one question...

Can you name the 5 things that the 1st Amendment to the Constitution guarantees all Americans?

So my friend calls me with a score of 0 out of 5! I got 3 right, so does that make me smart? I think not. I mean, shouldn't we know this stuff? These are our basic rights as Americans! 

Now if you knew them, congratulations! I know them now because my friend looked them up. But, if you didn't know all five of them, I'm not telling. Look it up. You should know! We should all know! And kudos to the teacher who gave this assignment!


  1. I knew them! But it's weird that they came to the front of my brain after all the time I have had them sitting on the back burner!
    I wont give it away, I agree, we should look it up if we don't know it!!!

  2. I knew them! :D But, I'm a Political and Social Philosophy major. lol.
