    Re: Bad lesson? Ohio elementary school in trouble after black student made to play sl

    Right off hand, I would say that I am more irritated by the concept that 10 year old children are in school to be experimented upon than anything else. IMO, if schools were to teach critical thinking skills, they wouldn't need to experiment on children.

    As a parent of a 10 year old, I would say the group was definitely too young, though.

    Damn right!!! Schools are for teaching kids how to think, not what to think.

    how is teaching students about the history of our nation - including the negative aspects - found to be an experiment

    That'll never happen, as long as there is a Liberal drawing a breath.

    you can certainly TEACH them......but WHY by re-enacting something that makes a student feel humiliated? stupid.

    1. If done right, this could teach a great deal about slavery. Let's face it, not one of us knows anyone who was ever a slave or ever owned a slave.

    2. But 10-year-old is WAY to young to do this right.

    If liberals would allow us, we really could move past this. But that's bad for business.

    Whites owned slaves and Blacks owned slaves. Sometimes I think people are just so damn foolish with this that they loose all common sense. The teacher was teaching. Some don't do that much. And BTW, it isn't the first time her lesson has been tought like this. First: find out how many years has she been in service and how many times this lesson has been used. Then you'll know if this is a knee jerk reaction.

    I am not sure whether or not you are being obtuse intentionally here, but it is the manner of the teaching experiment that is in question here and not the fact slavery is being taught. There are appropriate ways to teach 10 year old as well as inappropriate and since 10 year olds are so inquisitive by nature, a more perceptive teacher would not have needed something so heavy handed.
