Well, the *ONLY*
thing in that Lesson Plan that I found that could be construed as offensive in any way, shape, or form, by just about anyone
(except an Anarchist) would be the following exercise:
"Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date
by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals."
My initial thought is shouldn't the President be helping the children rather than asking for their help? However, this may be concerning something as
innocuous as "what they can do to help the president...keep kids in school
" or "what they can do to help the president...to better
" or "what they can do to help the president...help kids want to learn
". So, the findings on this solitary particular issue are
But the rest of it...OMG! What person would earnestly be upset about their child learning "Who is the President of the United States?
"What do you think it takes to be President?
"!!! (Again, Anarchists excluded from that statement.) How dare the President of the United
States recommend a study program that encourages my child to "Create Goals"! When SHTF they are going to be devastated when they realize that all
their hard-work in school to become an Astronaut amounted to nothing and now have to settle for life as a Sewage Worker content to discover sewage
that no-one's ever discovered before, and later be forced out of desperation to pile it on their head, then come to the surface and sell themselves
to an art gallery (forgive the Eddie Izzard comedy to prove a point)!
I'm sorry, but the whole thing seems to be a Much-Ado-About-Nothing. This is the same despicable Partisan Melodrama we have seen time and time
And the saddest part is that no matter how many times the One-Trick-Pony that is FoxHysteria uses the same trick, how many people fall for it again
and again and again. I guess P.T. Barnum has been proven right once again.
