    You are right I want a teacher to teach my children the 3 Rs reading, writting and arithmatic. Nothing else....

    They'd be making the same definition of informing oneself, for everyone, so conservatives would be total asshats to make that objection.

    You don't want a teacher teaching your child how to learn? That's so sad.

    ]If she/he can teach them the 3Rs which she/he is paid to do I will take care of the rest.........I don't want a teaccher teaching my children their personal politics, religion sex. For example if its and English teacher I want him or her to teach English not for who to vote for. We have had 4 children and that policy worked out fine....If you find that policy sad I am sorry.

    I never advocated teachers teaching politics. good teachers teach children how to parrot information thrust at them, bad teachers teach children how to think and learn. evidently you have had bad teachers.

    I think your idea might conflict with the Voting Rights Act. It's not against the law to be ignorant..willfully or not. If there was such a law...there wouldn't be enough jails.

    you don't know the difference between being allowed to vote and being locked in jail?

    Nope, I sent my kids to Catholic school for 12 years and they did just fine....I am giving you a hypothetical.......You don't want to use my actual children as and example because they all have college degrees, one is a PHD.


    You do know a lot of teachers teach their personal beliefs right?

    your hypothetical is way off topic, the question was who is best qualified to determine whether a person is actively seeking to educate themselves. If that's apolitical belief, it would be Democracy, not Democrat, by the way. Do your hypothetical offspring know the difference between a Democracy and a Democrat? Why don't you want to use your own children as an example? Are you afraid that your
    PhD grown children would prove you wrong by opening up a dictionary to the definition of teacher and to the definition of democracy?
