I keep hearing about Smart Phones and other Smart “things”. I wonder if we’ve forgotten the days when children were called “smart”? Somehow people want to be associated with “smart” anythings, but they do not invest in smart children like they did in the past. Much of America’s money goes to “special ed” children and “ESL” students who need help learning English. I often wonder if we’ve forgotten what “Smart” truly means. We apply it now to gadgets more than we do to children or living things.
