Honestly, I'd only really want the teacher punished if it was a "serious" thing. If it was the teacher pulling an obvious gag with a group of Year 12s then I cannot imagine there being any harm done. If it was a teacher trying to influence 9 year olds or whatever, then obviously that's not a very good thing.

regardless, a teachers ability to influence is based on how much/little a child's parents actually parent.

So the teacher had an opinion.

Big deal.

We all have them. To deny, punish someone for having a different opinion is authoritarian.

No two ways about it.

I don't necessarily disagree with that, but this isn't for having a different opinion as far as I'm concerned. It's for pushing a different opinion into an inappropriate place. This is obviously an extreme example, but if someone was trying to brainwash my child into being a religious fanatic I'd be quite irritated, even if I knew I could prevent it from occurring through my parenting. Option D makes me think it was a joke with students who'd understand what was going on, though.

We need a national application of Preparation H, in my opinion.

Too many people getting butt-hurt over opinions.

Preparation H?

I agree with the latter. It especially irritates me that it's giving my generation a bad name as being whiny and distracting from the significantly more important issues that plague the US. Sometimes I wonder if it's some sort of intentional false-flag style operation. -sigh-
That university with the Trump stuff in chalk was absurd.

The multiple-choice question asks students, “If a Donald Trump becomes president of the United states, we are:” and the choices are:

A. Screwed

B. Screwed

C. Screwed

D. Screwed behind a really YUGE wall that Mexico pays for.

I fail to see what this has to do with education.

What is this teacher teaching? Political science in high school? Even if that's what they teach, they should do it in a professional manner. Without bias, with proper, dignified phrasing of questions and answers and without infantile stunts such as this or basic spelling errors.

This story seems a made up propaganda piece to me.

I know. You should be disturbed. At you. These kids are way ahead of you educationally speaking


I sincerely doubt that.

The under 35 crowd for the most part with exceptions few and far between.

Have a hell of a lot of catching up to do with the over 35 crowd.

We didn't have the 24/7 news cycle and the 'internets' that dumbed us down, and force fed PROPAGANDA.

Sometimes teachers would do silly little bonus questions like this when I was in school as a reason to give extra points. Not really a big deal IMHO.

People get their panties in a bunch over the stupidest things these days. People want teachers to be unfeeling nonthinking robots. Its just ridiculous.

It all goes back to conservatives being convinced there is a vast conspiracy to make conservatism look bad..

It is not that all the teachers, college professors. Intellectuals, Jews, scientists, media, exc disagree with conservatism..

It is that there is a vast conspiracy where all of those groups go out of their way to hide any "liberal" (= not conservative) wrong doing, while propagating lies against the "poor freedom loving GOP.."

It's not that the testable claims in the bible have been disproven....

It's all a vast conspiracy to discredit Jesus...

When this stuff is your starting point....

Yeah, because communism was actually good and the Soviet Union was just misunderstood.

And rightfully so.

If i were to find out my child's teacher was behaving like that and serving them with that sort of material imposing and injecting his own political agenda into their school time and work and even in such a immature low IQ manner i would have been in his classroom the next day in a very angry manner.

Very unprofessional , childish and selfish too.

Two quick things....

1) I really wish people would stop referencing that damned movie. It was an ok flick, but not the classic people make it out to be (in my opinion).

2) On a personal level, stories like this one have a silver lining in that it makes me feel a lot better about the tuition of our son's private school.


Because it perfectly reflects what is happening today. If you listen to all these SJW people talking they sound and behave exactly like the people in that movie.

Look at this teacher for instance and the homework and exams he writes and he cant even spell "huge" correctly.
Proves my point perfectly.

Communism is neither good nor evil..it is like technology.

That's my whole point, which you helped make...

Communism does not equal Russia..it is an economic system. It is not inherently evil, just like a democracy is not inherently good..

King author running a communist monarchy could be paradise, while hitler running a Christian democracy was a disaster..

It all depends on who you put in charge..

Socialism, communism, exc as inherently evil was just Cold War propaganda.

You can certainly say it's evil, but it is not inherently so. In the real world, outside of fiction, nothing is inherently evil. It can't be. Evil, and good too, are constructs of humans. Saying "inherently evil" is like saying "objectively smart."

Communism is the antithesis of freedom.


I'll keep calling it evil.
