Letter: Educational straw man nothing but chaff
Placeholder Image
It is an accepted truth that one of the best ways to win or influence a debate is to frame the issue in your own terms. Attempting to do just that, Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan has gratuitously penned an article entitled “Debunking Election Year Myths” published in the Camden Chronicle-Independent and also posted on the Kershaw County School District website. Unfortunately, Dr. Morgan’s article drifts into another time-tested debate technique-that of building up and demolishing a false “straw man” argument when you have no rebuttal of the real topic at hand.
