    Re: Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led to Loss of Job

    I found a blog entry from one of this guy's students. At least it offers a view to counter this (so far) one-sided argument:

    I go to Lawrence High School, and the only reason he is being fired is because you can't express these beliefs as fact, as he was during his class. You can't tell a student that your personal beliefs are fact until they are accepted as fact. Tim Latham was flaunting his beliefs in front of the students and therefore not giving them an actual education but instead a series of regurgitated ideals that he called his own. Would you call that the curicullum?

    Then you have the homework issue, where no one was getting anything done in his class. You can't tell a student to accept your beliefs and then do an assignment over it. Several students who did not agree with him felt oppressed in his class room, factionalizing the student population on the issue of whether or not he should be fired. He isn't a teacher, in any regards of the word.

    Re: Kansas Teacher Claims Conservative Views Led to Loss of Job

    When I went to school, I noticed a very clear inverse relationship between a teacher's teaching ability and their penchant for letting their personal opinions be known.

    Teachers who use their position as a bully pulpit with which to indoctrinate should be weeded out, and this is just as true for the Ward Churchill/Norman Finklestein type leftists as it is the Hannity clones.

    The teacher should have gotten himself a homepage and put up links to Code Pink and Daily Kos and Huffington Post.

    I actually had the opposite experience in high school. One of my favorite classes was American Government, which was taught by a very partisan right winger. However, he challenged us to argue with him, and expected us to be able to defend other positions, and encouraged those of us on the left who showed an interest.

    I would be interested in seeing what that student's marks were under this teacher. I don't find emotional adolescents to be very reliable sources when discussing authority figures.

    I love how conservatives say "Wait wait, there are two sides to the Miss California Pageant, don't just to conclusions that she missed the events", but here they say the teacher is automatically telling the truth and it is the school's fault.

    ****ing hypocrites again.
    Hoe ironic watching Liberals screech "hypocrite" at every possible opportunity.

    Funny how you want BOTH sides now when in the past whenever someone claimed Cheney was a criminal or Bush a War Criminal, you just jumped right in with both feet.

    Yes, the same Liberals who screeched at the top of their lungs about Bush's BIG spending now defend their guys irresponsible trillions in spending with NO end even in sight without a single debate about how they will pay for it all.

    Yes, the same Liberals who screeched about how irresponsible it was to pass a budget with a deficit without new taxes but who suddenly, now that they are in power, don't want to have any honest debate about raising taxes to pay for the TRILLIONS they have already committed.

    Yes funny Liberals, we do know who the hypocrites are in these partisan political debates and it is the person looking back at you from the mirror.

    Carry on.

    If this were to happen, almost every LIBERAL teacher would be fired.....hey, that is NOT a bad idea!
