Hey, can I borrow some file space for my anecdotal evidence of leftist propaganda being pushed in the classroom with taxpayer dollars? The holidays are coming up - time for some fruitcake.
The teachers then ask the students, "What are your ideas for making our class more democratic?"
A suggested list of acceptable answers includes:
- Decide what we will learn in class and make curricula decisions.
- Create the classroom rules and consequences as a group.
- Have a student council in the class to create and enforce rules.
- Students decide the menu for school lunch.
- Have students take turns teaching the class.
That is for grades 4-7. Oh yes, that should work out well. Let me see, I'm in the 6th grade and I am made the above offer. What will we learn? The stats for all NFL players and ACC basketball teams. Classroom rules? Rule number 1 - the teacher has to leave. Rule enforcement? Lock the door. Lunch menu? That's easy, hot dogs w/chili, mustard, onions and sweet relish and Reese's Cups for dessert. Dr. Pepper for our beverage - on crushed ice in a frosted mug. Students teaching class? Then they're no longer students. Class dismissed. Close the school and save tons of money. Yipeee!!!
The above suggestions for making a class more democratic comes from a public school on the left coast. But we know this kind of garbage is rampant. Just check my over-flowing anecdotal file closet if you don't believe me. This nut job information comes from some left-wing, nut job organization promoting Occupy Wall Street communism (disguised as "democracy") and anarchy in the classroom.
As the writer at the American Thinker reminds us:
The Occupy movement illustrates why the founders of the United States crafted a republic, and not a democracy. As John Adams stated, "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide."
