Replying to LO29272 --

Dear Organlearners,

Greetings to all of you.

I am replying to myself. I may have crazy thoughts or perhaps may even be
crazy;-) But in this case i am replying to the last message on the topic
for continuity purposes.

I was doing a search on internet trying to get hold of information on
Benjamin Franklin other than that which he gives self in his auto-
biography. By the way, i have found an electronic version of his
autobiography at
< http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa/B/bfranklin/franktxt.htm >

The site
< http://www.ratical.org >
has an article on Franklin at
< http://www.ratical.org/many_worlds/6Nations/FFchp5.html

I became interested in the site itself since it had this article. So i began
to browse around and found the following article:-
"Paths of Learning: An Introduction to Educational Alternatives"
< http://www.ratical.org/many_worlds/PoL.html >

I cannot say that it is a fair representation of schools in the US, but it
does reflect my own impression of what is happening in US schools. Perhaps
fellow learners may want to have a look at it.

With care and best wishes
