In response to my posting a nostalgic song by Merle Haggard, an anonymous reader tells me to get out of education. She (I'm going to follow stereotypes and assume she is a she) didn't say, "You need to be fair, Ron. Show all sides of an issue to your students. Keep your own gripes out of it." Her call was for me to get out. Such a demand reveals the totalitarian wish--typical of the liberal attitude toward education (It's a sad joke that these people are called "liberals"). Almost total domination of schools by the Left is not enough for this women. She would have fit right in with the Nazi education purges. It's not enough to have 95 percent of educators Nazis. We won't rest until every last Communist and Jew is run out.
Well, ma'am, rest easy. Every one of the administrors above me would love to show the door to any subordinate who expresses opinions like I do on this blog. Like any good resident at the Gulag, I do as I'm told. My liberal colleagues can indoctrinate kids with almost anything they care to. For (a mild) example, how whites are evil for displacing Indians, like you said. There are liberals who try to be neutral in the classroom, but many use their authority to brainwash unsuspecting youths. I've taught for 15 years and have met a few conservative educators. None--I repeat none--takes anything but a neutral approach to teaching. Some do it out of principle; others to avoid termination. So relax--your fellow liberals have got the concentration camp under control.
