The KISS Principle Is The Best Principle!

When I am substituting in our local school district libraries, I instruct the students to remember the KISS principle in performing their daily tasks to work smarter — not harder. When they ask, "What is the KISS principle?" I tell them "Keep It Simple Students." Here is the origin of the KISS principle, with all of its variations.

The KISS principle is designed to help keep undue stress out of our lives the more complex we make things — the more stress we experience. This is also true in learning something new. When I was beginning my education in the 1950's, we were taught the simplicity of reading by using the phonics method

However, in today's "modern" educational system, students are being taught a far more complex system of reading called sight-word reading, which makes the learning of the English language far more complex than it needs to be.

In this American Thinker article, author Bruce Deitrick Price points out the fact that the United States has more than 40 million functional illiterates — a direct result of children no longer being taught the phonics method of reading. If children cannot read at their designed grade reading level, how in the world will they be able to read and understand the Bible? Sad to say, the great deceiver of this world (Revelation 12:7-9), has found yet another avenue in which to keep people ignorant of God's simplistic Word (2 Corinthians 1:12; 2 Corinthians 11:3; cf. 1 Corinthians 1:17-31; 2 Corinthians 2:1-2).

What's the solution to the above problem? Parental involvement in their children's education, including their spiritual training. If the public school where you are located is not teaching the phonics method of reading, teach that system to your children, in a home school environment.

Beloved, remember the KISS principle is the best principle!
