Writer's Block: Educate Me

What subject(s) do you think kids should be taught more about in school? What do you feel gets too much emphasis already?

Recently, my daughter's high school civics teacher attempted to describe the differences between the two major political parties in America. She said one party (I'll leave out which one) was like Hitler and Stalin, and the other party was like Ghandi.

Something about that comparison is just wrong. Schools need to leave out personal bias and emphasize truth.


Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” - Albert Einstein

Scary, isn't it? This was in what I read this morning:

Isaiah 29:19-21 impressed me because it sounded like he was referring to PC speech!

That's terrible! Personal bias has no place in a classroom, especially someone who is supposed to be teaching democracy!!

I think the principal ought to be made aware of this!!

I've thought about doing that. Not quite sure yet, though. I am not one to make waves.

How knows, the principle could share the teacher's opinions.

True. And then what would I do?
