Brynn's class was assigned to do a 1-minute presentation about an object
that best represents their family's Christmas tradition.
Although I believe that schools are for learning, debating, and forming individual ideas,
and different perspectives should be encouraged not suppressed;
The teacher was wrong in assuming that everyone in the class had a family christmas
tradition in the first place. Although the child should have had the opportunity to
share her perspective, others including those that do not do christmas
should have had the opportunity to
share THEIR perspectives.
The planet is not isolated bubble, LEARNING requires taking a look at every
perspective and taking off the blinders to be able to
appreciate the planet as it is in reality.
If you are strong in your conviction, what others believe shouldn't
be a problem or matter.
Everyone is entitled to their own independent political position, isn't this
what makes a country great/free ?
