One of those problems is the issue of politics. I keep seeing and hearing about parents outraged because kids are being taught to favor socialism, or liberal agendas are being heavily taught in school and pushed on to young impressionable minds. On the other hand some parents and even people who don't have children are pissed because there isn't enough of a liberal agenda being taught in schools. This ranges from colleges clear down to preschool.
PRESCHOOL! Really? Our education system has become very sick and very twisted. What are we turning into? One of Hitler's propaganda schools, dead set on brainwashing our kids? And what about the parent's wishes? What if the parent is conservative or liberal? What if the parents aren't either but independent? I'm sorry, most people send their kids to school to learn reading, writing, science, and math, not to color communist flags in class or have liberal or conservative agendas woven into their lessons.
School boards and teachers should be teaching neutral lessons, even when it comes to political classes. Their political bias or the school's or even the school board's political bias' should never ever enter a student's learning time. And if something comes up in class from the students, teachers should create a safe, neutral discussion zone, and make damned sure that the students know if they don't agree with each other, then that's okay. Then, teachers should encourage students to do their own research, learn on their own time outside of school, and most importantly, decide for themselves.
Also, no teacher should ever be pushed into teaching along the lines of a political agenda, ever! Nor should they risk losing their job because they refuse to teach that political agenda.
But then what the hell do I know? I'm just a girl from Kansas, I couldn't possibly know anything or have anything of value to bring a conversation much less any kind of intelligence. Ehm. Yeah. -.-
