    It's not other peoples' "homework" to look up your claims that you won't support. It's yours.

    Mine was pretty conservative. Not like that though. But you don't see authoritarianism when you are younger as well as you do when you get some age on your skin. Perhaps just getting older just makes skin crawl.

    true enough... I had no idea schools were so screwed up until i got some years under my belt and had my own kids going through it.

    and now with the zero tolerance environments and school controlling more and more of students lives ... it's only getting worse.

    bitching that a school might have the audacity to teach patriotism as a "positive" makes me laugh, though..
    people would throw an absolute ****fit if they were availed to the evil ways we were taught in my day... when patriotism and civic duty were the top priorities in school( citizenship was part of our grades)..... lefties would start cutting themselves if they had to live though that sort of heinous ****.

    I can't stand "no tolerance" policies. It's total BS. It's a way people in authority positions can dodge responsibility for making decisions. "My hands are tied by policy" crap. My redneck high school had a massive FFA crowd that all drove pickups to school with gun racks in the windows carrying rifles and shotguns. During hunting season they might not come back after lunch. lol Also pocket knives... many people carry them. its no big deal. They are just tools.

    People have just created jobs where decision making is a requirement of the job so they work their asses off to create policies that take their job responsibilities away. So they can just show up just to collect a paycheck.

    The whole teaching patriotism bit does make my skin crawl though. Because it's extremely subjective. One guys' patriotism is rebellion while another is absolute obedience to authority.

    Yes, God forbid we teach kids to like much less love their own country...Why, they might actually try to defend it against the enemy within.

    LOL .... another over-reaction from someone who didn't actually bother to investigate.

    They do not 'teach' patriotism ... they teach truths that 'promote' patriotism. Read the report ... it actually enhances students' access to historical facts.

    Now, your skin won't crawl ...
