I attended Arkansas Governor's School in 1990. I received the exact same core curriculum and what has been presented in this forum as "brainwashing". I'm married, have children and a great career. I'm a registered Republican, slightly more conservative than moderate and have never once entertained killing myself. Although a shame, I firmly believe than anyone who is capable of being pushed over the edge by six weeks of liberal babble in high school isn't going to hold up for long in the real world. The ideology preached by many of the "professors" at AGS was openly confronted and rejected by those who held differences of opinion. It was a program for the mentally strong to be exposed to concepts and belief structures different than their own... and certainly not presented in any format that would compare to what we are asked to swallow on a daily basis in our jobs, our universities or from the televisions in our homes. I would hate to see what I found to be a stimulating exercise in free speech be boiled down to some liberal brainwashing experiment. Having experienced the exact same summer in question, I'd have to say it wasn't anything like it's being portrayed to be.

Did you say you went to the 'SUMMER SCHOOL', or did I misunderstand you??
