    And maybe you can ask Vance why the experience some anonymous internet poster had with a liberal college professor would have anything to do with why these conservative school board members want to change the curriculum? Shouldn't that be decided on the school's curriculum (which the people who complain about its' liberal bias have yet to post any evidence to support)?
    Maybe YOU could just read my comments which have been extraordinarily critical of said school board member, rather just doing your usual routine. I am and always have been an advocate of removing slant and bias from education.

    Sorry...I dont want conservative OR liberal bias in the presentation of education. I've consistently said as much. The best professors and educators I have had always challenged an individuals perspective and allowed them to see all sides.

    i never said you were not critical of this. I criticized your claim that this school board member was motivated by liberal college professors

    Please post one example of any high school in Jefferson County censoring, massaging, and manipulating the curriculm.

    Thats what you call an 'opinion'. Where there are SOME that promote bias, it is likely that there are others that will offer a COUNTER. One of this boards rather liberal members stated that the majority of HIS professors in college were liberal. I have seen more than a few liberal professors in my day as well. (Psychology Today has also done studies that confirm there is an OBVIOUS bias in higher education). My OPINION is that there is natural blowback to bias, and that is represented by that particular school board members curriculum offering.

    When did I say they weren't? Did I say something to allude to the idea that I think corporate/private schools are any better? Because that would be a fundamental misunderstanding of what I advocate for.

    They have liberal bias but don't understand they have liberal bias. To them bias is a good thing and all for the greater good.
