Teachers and Politics

Do you know the political views of the people educating your children? Probably not. And.. it shouldn’t matter. Weather an educator is liberal or conservative does not change the cirriculum they must teach, nor should there be a spin placed on what students learn.

I am of the opinion that the political views of a teacher have little place in classrooms. And if she wants to be an activist in her off time, so be it. In the classroom where my children are trying to learn? Then I have a problem with it.

Stick to history sweetheart.

You’re having a hard enough time getting them to understand and care about that. As a parent, I’d have my kids learning and understanding their past, so that they can make educated decisions about the future… rather than have them simply follow a path because someone else said it was a good idea.
