Education should seek, first and foremost, to teach people how to learn. Thus, whenever a person hears snippets from a news broadcast or reads only portions of a news story, one's first obligation needs to be restraint and circumspection until the facts are obtained and understood. Of course, such learning techniques are rarely effectively taught by age 10, let alone by age 18.
Of course, now that you've seen the signs, you can help instill this critical learning skill. She'll be better for it.
Does anyone know if Obama has apologized for the earthquake yet?
Be sure you keep your daughter updated on various current events, so that she may even educate some of her peers.
