Ramnath Subramanian: New school endeavor moves on with help

It was nearly six years ago that my confidence in public-school education reached its nadir, and I became convinced that many school officials, corrupted and cowed by accountability, were willing to sacrifice the ideals of a sanguine education for a mediocre test-score-based model.

Yes in deed. One more time. The guy from India has sprung some "new" words on the people of El Paso that Nobody round here as ever used before and damn sure ain't gonna use any time soon. Nadir,Sanguine,attenuated,peri patetic,fin-de-siecle and on it goes as usual.I like to hear about American success stories about how prodigiously talented children can arise to pinnacle of success when the mother tut ores her child as she goes about taking in laundry,scrubbing floors, mowing and grooming yards and all the time living in the projects and dealing with gang activity.Then the father taking time off his job collecting cardboard to tutor his child on the cow theory. If they can do it,baby,anybody can do it.

Yes, these are the medieval, dark ages for public education and like in the previous dark ages there need to be cloistered monasteries where real knowledge and learning are preserved and carried on for future times. Your school is one of these....

Kudos to Mr. Subramanian for his efforts to inspire, educate and enlighted El Paso's youth.

I wish I had a child to send to SOE! I love this! No need for expensive equipment, fancy buildings. Draw in the dust and dirt as they gather around and they will learn and be inspired. Socrates would be so pleased!

I wish Mr. Subthesauran well. The school promises to provide a type of educational experience not readily available in our region. Let us just hope the gentleman does not teach a class in English composition.
