    Ah. Then surely I am entitled to demand that the education system refrain from endoctrinating children politically, or in matters about which there is great controversy? Say, global warming?

    If it were up to me, I would cut it all. Its time to run some schools like a business.

    If schools are suffering - then they need to figure out *why* they're suffering before they try to keep convincing my kids that they need to own more crap.

    No I mean they'd have to open your locker every time they wanted to put a new ad in there. Kind of an invasion of privacy. I know schools have a right to check your locker when ever they want, but that would just be overboard.

    Plus I knew a lot of girls who would decorate the insides of their lockers. And I knew a lot of guys who's lockers were completely trashed.

    So what you're saying is that you don't want them teaching science in science class. There is no controversy surrounding global warming. It is happening. It's only the American right wing and Glen Beck followers who think there is an international socialist conspiracy to control the economy through climate change scare tactics.

    That is your opinion sir. My opinion is that the "A" in AGW is overhyped, and the world-threatening crisis aspect is also overhyped; and that there is considerable disagreement in scientific circles on those aspects of it.

    My point is, who is yelling depends on whose ox is getting gored...

    Well you are certainly entitled to your opinion, but it has zero basis in scientific fact, which is why AGW is taught in schools and your opinion isn't. Unless the science changes and points to a different conclusion (which it hasn't), fact is fact.

    I'm not sure what that even means.

    Only if the kids get a bunch of freebies out of being exposed to them

    Example: Open your locker and there is an ad for Adidas? Kids should get a free Gift Card so they can go get em some new kicks.
