Do You Believe This Public School ‘Lesson’?

Oops, the tent fell down

Folks are kind of upset with a middle school in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where the kids got an assignment to decide “Whom  to leave behind” if “Earth is doomed to destruction” and you can only save eight people (

The kiddies get a list of 12 individuals and are told to pick just eight for berths on a spaceship to another planet. Then the class as a whole has a pow-wow to decide the final roster.

Here’s the tricky part:

Nine of the twelve candidates on the list belong to entitled Minorities. Two are harder to identify. And the only obviously white candidate is “an armed racist police officer who has been accused of using excessive force.” How many of the kiddies do you think picked him?

So I guess the proposal is to populate the new planet with nobody but representatives of  grievance-touting Minorities. But here’s a tricky bit the “educators” hadn’t thought of.

With only Minorities on the new planet, who are they going to blame for all their troubles? Without someone to blame and demonize, liberalism totally falls apart–like a circus big top with all its ropes cut.

Anyway, some of Cuyahoga Falls’ elected officials are looking into this. For what it’s worth. “Educators” always get away with stuff like this. That’s how they screwed up our country.

    I substituted for a Sophomore World History class this week. They were having to read an article titled, “The Worst Mistake in the History of the Human Race.” It was about how farming was the biggest mistake because the human race would be better off being scavengers like the Bushmen of Africa (I kid you not). It begins like this: “To science we owe dramatic changes in our smug self-image. Astronomy taught us that our earth isn’t the center of the universe but merely one of billions of heavenly bodies. From biology we learned that we aren’t speciailly created by God but evolved along with millions of other species.” – and it goes downhill from there with its emphasis on we came from apes.

    Reading through the story, and seeing the sample, it strikes me as an exercise in teaching judgmentalism. Should someone with a possible drug problem go, a pregnant woman, etc? Give me a break! This sounds like something you’d hear on a playground. It’s too stupid to be believed. IMO, some of these teachers have never grown up themselves.

      A very great deal of our “education” is too stupid to be believed.

        Some of the teachers I’ve met, of late, certainly do not impress me. I’ve spoken to teachers with poor reading comprehension and abysmally bad communications skills, yet they were in the business of teaching children for a living. I have a great deal of respect for someone that is a good teacher. I have had some good ones in my day, back in the public schools and certainly in some of the technical courses I have taken, but there are others who I would just as soon forget.
