    Children actually have opinions about their own education.

    My two year old and my eleven year old agree with you.

    There is a distinction between young adults and children. I certainly am not opposed to any young adult (or child for that matter) having an opinion. The question is do the adults react to that opinion and how? I’m sure if you promised some kids ice cream whenever they wanted it if they learned algebra many would agree with you. I’m not young but what I’ve noticed is secular education in certain Jewish schools is looked down upon. What can go wrong if you taught a teen how to figure out square footage? Or to use fractions? Or perhaps learn the constitution or how a bill becomes a law? To me there is no apparent evil in these subjects, and yes, many things can be used for evil. But IMHO, using good for evil purposes can be covered in religious studies.

    When I was a child, I wanted a more rigorous academic schedule, not ice cream.

    Good on you RebYidd23. But it seems that in Jewish religious schools candy is a major motivator and I often wonder why. (Just getting back to my original analogy.)
