Posted 12/9/16 , edited 12/9/16
I am upset but mostly by what the teacher said here >> https://youtu.be/C5wUAaIdF6c
she needs to keep her political opinion out of the classroom. And on another note I heard the kid was under threat of expel?
Just hopping mad what is your take on this?

Yep I read that story as well. It's not really surprising coming from a professor, especially from California.

While I think that teacher's specific rhetoric was kind of out of line, I don't really have a problem in general with teachers (particularly at the post-secondary level) expressing their political opinions when they're relevant to the subject matter (so long as they're presented as just that - opinions). By that age you're supposed to be old enough to think critically and come to your own conclusions.

This isn't a room full of impressionable grade schoolers, these are people who can vote. If they aren't capable of gathering information and forming their own opinion regardless of the teacher's expressed bias then we're in a hell of a lot of trouble as a democracy.

I seen that and it's disgusting. Teachers are suppose to TEACH kids not shove propaganda down their throats. This teacher needs to be fired.

and i do think this teacher is out of line and should be fired.

While I think it can be healthy to have discussions on current events in the classroom, this lady is as far out of line as Transformers: The Last Knight is from being a good movie. This would be hilarious if it weren't so pathetic.

It's called indoctrination. Teachers need to plant lies early enough so that the kids believe the lies whenever a Democrat politician opens their mouth.

Whil I am all for political discussion in a classroom for older students, the teacher should be the impartial leader of these conversations. Both sides should be equally presented. A teacher should not get up on their soapbox and liken any leader to that of Hitler, especially when said leader hasn't taken office.

she is out of line.

IMO the only time politics and religion should be in the classroom is if you are doing an essay on politics or you are in primary school doing RE but America weirdly doesn't do that anymore (i understand why people want to keep religion out of schooling i don't agree personally as an agnostic who did RE in school but the majority is against it )
