A new plan by a California lawmaker would allow schools to be used to promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, and let teachers in public district classrooms "inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism," according to a traditional values advocacy organization.
"Just when we thought the indoctrination in California's public schools couldn't get any worse, state lawmakers introduce bills that will further brainwash innocent children," said a statement from Capitol Resource Institute, a traditional values and family advocacy organization based in California
Then again, the article stated that they were being taught how to overthrow the government.
In the case of bush, would that be such a bad thing?
Under existing law, a public employee is required to answer,
under oath, specified questions, including, but not limited to,
knowing membership in an organization advocating the forceful or
violent overthrow of the government of the United States or of any
This bill would delete these provisions.

And besides, all the bill is suggesting is that Communism be allowed the same chance of indoctination as Democracy, Fascim, Corporatism, Socialism, etc etc etc. Its not saying teachers MUST indoctrinate kids with Communist theories.

Schools should only promote democracy and capitalism; we are in America after all.
Of course the schools should teach the kids what the other ideologies are but they should not be taught they are just as good as democracy and capitalism.
The kids should know these other ideologies are failed attempts and do nothing but suppress the people.
I wonder if they still teach that America, the land of democracy and capitalism actually fought with spilled blood in the past to push back and stop the spead of communism, fascism and socialism.
