    It's not like parents don't tell their children the same shit about Obama.

    Not trying to justify this... I never ran across anything like this in school.

    the difference is that parents aren't paid to teach. Some parents are incredibly stupid and have horrid judgment but we shouldn't be hiring them as teachers

    At least parents know early-on that the teacher is incompetent, rather than finding out at the end of the year that their kid was taught by a dullard. I would request my child be assigned to a different classroom.

    I'm not trying to defend the teacher here, but sadly children will be taught rhetoric like this at home. Personally, I don't talk about this shit around my nieces and nephews. I'm a far more tame and less opinionated person when I'm around children.

    I don't feel children should be poisoned with such stuff at such a young age.

    Employers make mistakes all the time. But it's easy for them to rectify it. Not really the case in public schools.

    My father was a teacher in the district I went to jr high and high school in. One of the biggest leftists in the district was one of the main union officials.

    He retired a few years ago, and on Sunday he had an op/ed in the local paper. He was praising the recent court decision in CA regarding teacher tenure. He said in his last few years, especially the last 10 on the firing committee, it hit him how stupid this was. Teachers did some egregious things, and it was essentially too expensive to justify firing a teacher. And so he, the big union guy, had done a complete 180. I think that is pretty powerful.

    Let's put it this way. I know a teacher who was at my high school when I was a student there. He was caught boning one of his softball players. It was never public; word just gets around. The district was willing to go through the process to fire him, but they offered him a deal where they wouldn't say anything and he could just resign, to avoid all the costs associated with going through with it. Now, I knew this guy because he was a local basketball coach too. I knew from knowing him that he had suddenly resigned from a local Christian school before he came to my high school. And apparently he suddenly resigned at a school after that.

    If it is too expensive to fire a serial rapist teacher, or even make it public so he would be prosecuted, there is a huge problem. And the parents aren't helping either, but it's because they don't want to put their kids through it all, and it is tough to argue with that.

    This guy could do an assignment called "Pin the Noose on the Negro" next year and it would still be an ordeal to fire him.

    of course. But we unfortuantely can't choose the people who have kids (I wish we could). We can carefully choose our teachers. Any moron can have kids. Any moron shouldn't have access to our kids in a classroom.

    Now you know why home schooling is so popular. In sixth grade I did a project on the life cycle of the Striped Bass. Keep politics out of public school.
