Too much government?

I was getting my haircut by a beautician in Pendleton County a year or so after I had come to Pendleton County as Superintendent of Public Schools. Another woman was waiting to have her hair trimmed and I engaged her in conversation. She told me that she had a 14-year-old son and a 12-year-old girl, both of whom were students in the public schools in Pendleton. I asked how they were doing, leaving the question open-ended.
