The Horror! CO Students Protest Curriculum That Teaches 'Positive Aspects Of Nation'

American-Flag-close-focus.jpg

Brainwashed students are unable to cope with the radical idea that America is actually good (emphasis mine):

ARVADA, Colo. Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms around suburban Denver on Tuesday in protest over a conservative-led school board proposal to focus history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority, in a show of civil disobedience that the new standards would aim to downplay. [...]

The school board proposal that triggered the walkouts in Jefferson County calls of instructional materials that present positive aspects of the nation and its heritage.

3 They do not understand that teaching what works is how you make genuine progress.

4 Well, put me down for donating $500 to the "See how America is actually the Great Satan" fund, which would provide ONE-WAY tickets for any of these malcontents to personally meet America-haters in the M.E. and Persia.

6 If they think that they're so smart that they can walk out on a point of view they disagree with, then they ought to be able to articulate exactly what is wrong with it.

Assignment for the students: write a paper on exactly why this is such a terrible course. Footnotes and justification is required.

Problem solved.

7 It would be real interesting to know what their parents think.

8 Gork, I agree. I see this as a teachable moment, but probably not in the manner the teachers thought.

9 Parental advice, teacher's leadership, to tell students the idea is to walk out.

10 'hundreds' (nice vague number) out of many tens of thousands of students issued the same lessons.

probably just the usual commie maggots looking for affirmation by their leftard parents, or simply put up to it by said leftard parents.

OK leftard parents who dont support this nation and the right of its citizend, THEN just go away and give up the advantages of the system you so hate.

11 Simple notification that they will have to make up the missed schooltime in summer-school (and if applicable not graduate) would probably sway many of these leftards.
