Wow, so as i suggested yesterday, the school tried to control what speech and
opinions students can express at school. That led to a disatrous event brought
on by the resentment caused by schools telling students that they cant express
an idea unless it is politically correct.
Our schools are short-changing our children. The schools, which are populated
with left-wing teachers, do not tell our children that Socialists (Marx, Stalin,
Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Che, Castro, Mugabe, etc) were responsible last century
for over 100 million deaths, primarily silencing political opponents. In a
free society that just doesn't happen. Shouldn't our children
understand the perils of progressivism, socialism, Marxism, and Communism?Karl Pierson obviously did not understand these perils.
Neither one of these comments are appropriate responses to this incredible
tragedy. Our schools are not short changing our children, and that
is not the reason this tragedy happened. Utah schools are populated with
teachers that match the belief system and world view of the population as well
as any group of people does. Just because you want students to learn about and
agree with your own personal political ideology does not make you right by
Back Talk,So its the schools fault that this young man brought a gun
to school and tried to kill people? I am speechless. So much for personal
responsibility, so much for parental responsibility. I would think that most
reasonable people would suggest their are better ways to solve problems than
with guns.BrentBot,Quite a generalization that our
schools are populated with left wing teachers. I would like to see your
evidence of that. If you have concerns about what is being taught, you need to
take that up with the Utah legislature, who is pretty far right and micromanages
the curriculum being taught in our schools today.
95 percent of the elite liberal arts colleges have faculty who register as
Democrats. The percentage is somewhat lower in business and engineering
universities. These elite liberal arts colleges are the source of the Political
Correctness which is suffocating common sense.
