You must think it is biased because all you have heard is "they are terrorist hippies" for the last few months. So its very different from what we are used to, but in no way biased. Since when was it biased to explain something, there is no opinion only fact.
Give your the respect they deserve by not hiding information from them..

Sorry mate but this article does actually come across as very impartial, as a quick summary it nails it perfectly.

Which is a rare thing I must say.

Yes, I read the article. It's biased toward the political views of the protesters. as you stated "it's a news and current affairs magazine for KIDS" I guess you'd have no problem with the same magazine containing an article written from the persepective of the Tea Party or a group opposed to unions?




Alright I haven't read Scholastic magazine since 2nd grade or something...but I would not at all be surprised to hear that they covered the Tea Party in an article about current events...especially since a couple 2012 candidates are somewhat affiliated with it.

It is OK to tell kids about current events in their own country...unless you see everything your child reads as subliminal brainwashing and propaganda to slant their political views - in which case you should see a shrink

I guess its only good when the Republican party with Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich brain wash little kids that they must be slaves for the rich. Start by cleaning the bathroom toilets.Get to work poor kid. Reminds of Eddie Murphy You dont have no ice cream.


From the video.
"You don't have no ice cream, You can't afford it, Cause Ya mommas on welfare."

So you're saying you have no idea what you're talking about then you offer your opinion about the topic on which you're not informed.

Well done.

Yeah. It's some idiot grade school teacher's place to brainwash kids into defying authority. Srsly? Just teach them to read, write and add and multiply. The moral teaching isn't to be done by some nitwit who can't teach at university level or get a job in the real world.


Brainwashing is a little extreme don't you say? Hell watching TV and playing video games is more brainwashing than a pamphlet.

With the current state of the world, anyone who doesn't question the obviously flawed authority are blind to the truth. If everyone continues to sit down and just take it, soon enough we will be told where to live, how many children to have, and what job we are to perform to be a contributing citizen. And what will happen to those qho question authority? Pretty soon people with a voice will be labeled as terrorists. Its not a joke, its not meant to be funny. Its supposed to scare the hell out of you. Detaining American citizens with no due process is just the tip of the iceberg there.

In the near future, a post like this will probably have the fed knocking down my door and me disappearing forever.

Free thinkers will be labeled as extremists. Just like Ron Paul being banned from a political debate. A presidential candidate. What chance do we regular citizens stand?



but we strongly reject his misguided and extreme views, which are not representative of the Republican Party


Just replace Republican Party with United States. More and more laws removing god given freedoms will probably make their way to being passed until they have their perfect complacent citizens.

You're missing the point. It's a grade-school publication. Now I'm not sure in which country you reside, but here in the US, the kids that manage to graduate from high school are so ill-equipped to face the world that it's ridiculous.

Ask a US high school graduate what a Certificate of Deposit or a short position on a stock is. Ask them to describe the relationship between kinetic and potential energy. As them who Dostievsky is. Give them a blank map of the the US and have them fill in the names of the states.

You'll weep in disappointment. But apparently, the editors of this childrens' scholastic magazine feel that 4th graders would be better off knowing about a group protesting banks.

Well I was always taught to learn from my mistakes. And that history repeats itself. I've learned from the last generation's mistakes. And I don't want history full of hate, bloodshed, and greed to repeat.

Conform to the old ways or rise above it and make a new future. Hard choice there.

Well, good luck on changing the last (recorded) 6 centuries of human brutality. Let me give you a starting point: educate our children in how to achieve. That is, make them better chemists, physicists, engineers, doctors. Give me a nation filled with young minds who want to invent, discover and self-actualize.

Feeding them news stories of how this group hates that group isn't going to do anything but repeat the history you're so dedicated to avoiding.

Our children need to envision, to think, to dream. OWS isn't that, it's just more conflict. Think about it.

Tell kids truthfully about recent events; said that they're spreading propaganda.

Gotta love when the right-winger anti-OWS loonies (er, , greedy corrupt devils, snakes, bankers, Wall Street folks and other American-ruining TRAITORS among us) scream out 'propaganda' whenever it involves anything that is against their corrupt interests.

The truth to them is "propaganda" because these snakes live the life of LIES, GREED, and CORRUPTION and wouldnt know the TRUTH or anything GOOD and DECENT if it smacked them in their SMUG, GREEDY, DEVILISH faces.

The TRUTH is considered "propaganda" in the eyes of these anti-American, SELFISH, GREEDY, snakes and devils.

BS thread. Epic BS.

Just as an extra bonus, I used to work for Scholastic. They are run by Nazis. No not actual National Socialists from Germany, but you know what I mean. They treat their employees like garbage and the working conditions are atrocious. I've seen thousands and thousands of books that Scholastic carries in their warehouse, and if any of them are about the government or politics, it's always uplifting our government and glorifying the leaders as godsent heroes of America.

However, I was extremely puzzled when I found a case of a book that was called "Who Really Runs The Nation" or something like that. I just had to flip it over and read the synopsis or summary or whatever, and it was about how the corporations actually run the country and the government is just a puppet organization. I was shocked to find that in their warehouse. Although, sadly, of all the orders I've packaged and shipped at Scholastic, only ONE ever bought that book.

From the linked source in the OP

This is the "propaganda" being whined about in this thread. It is completely unbiased. The linked site in the OP goes on to babble on about George Sorros which that connection has been proven non existent over and over again. I think people believe if you repeat a lie often enough it becomes true, well at least it will be an isolated truth. Please stop making fear mongers rich by going to their websites.

WorldNetDaily? Talk about propaganda. Could they squeeze any more propaganda into that hatchet job of an opinion piece if they tried?

Not much of a segway into the muslim bashing.

And you know what? If you think that schoolastic 'News Short' is propaganda in favour of OWS you are confused. It explains both sides but concludes with some pro government propaganda about a "strain on cities resources". Did you even read the "News Short" before you wrote this conservative propaganda thread? Didnt think so.

You are a blatant conservative 50 cent army propagandist.To say this thread is hypocritical would be a ludicrous understatement. I mean are you serious? I would like to say nice try but its like you arent even trying.

This reminds me of those videos of the teachers leading the schoolchildren in a song praising Obama.....

Teacher's personal politics-no matter what they are- do NOT belong in the classroom.....


You didnt read the "News Short" either did you?

How does the "News Short" reflect teachers personal politics? Where exactly do you get that from? You really should read things and be informed before you jump to blindly agree with people.

The "News Short" was in no way pro OWS propaganda. And in no way did it relfect the "personal politics" of teachers.

I agree with the assesment that it is an unbiased and fairly decent summary of the overall phenomenon.

Oh, and as for brainwashing in the school? Seriously, growing up the only places I ever saw Scholastic was in Doctor's office lobbies and *maybe* occasionally in the school library.

Just the fact that they are in school in mass and for the parents to allow their kids to be there is a form of brainwashing. School is a brainwashing system in itself. Minds all washed up in every seat.

At least they're being taught not to lay down for anyone, even the unruly government.

There is a positive side to everything

What is this thread complaining about, I can't understand.

Should we just continue teaching kids how to add, subtract, divide, memorize useless history information (much of which is biased and written by 'the winners' of wars), teach them to be "good workers" and call them educated? That's what John D Rockefeller wanted when he created the General Education Board... if you don't know about how this country's education system is more of a system to generate worker bees to profit the central bankers, maybe you should do some reading on the subject.

The transfer, or theft, of wealth from the middle class to the upper class, bankers and corporations is just as important to know about as math, science or history.

"Don't talk about politics." We teach kids that. Why? We teach them to put their hand on their heart and pledge blind allegiance, without ever teaching them about the system. It's sad.

"The issue arose over the Scholastic News handout given to students"

I'm assuming it was "given" to them by a teacher......
