Oops, the tent fell down…

Remember this “lesson” taught in an Ohio public school? World’s gonna end! Which eight people on a list of twelve do you save, and which do you abandon to their deaths?

Do You Believe This Public School ‘Lesson’?

Obviously you’re supposed to pick only persons belonging to Entitled Minorities. To make it easier for you to do that, nine of the twelve on the list are members of Entitled Oppressed Boo-Hoo Minorities, two are indeterminate, and the twelfth is this racist white cop who uses excessive force.

Actually, this crapola and variations thereof has been floating around in our public schools since the 1970s. It drives home the point that a lot of people who design educational materials belong on a desert island somewhere, with no one but each other for company.

(I think that might be the meanest thing I’ve ever wished on anybody.)

  1. The people left behind should probably be the people who arrogate to themselves the decision about who’ll be left behind. But of course having said that, I’ve just condemned myself to be left behind, haven’t I? Oh, well. 🙂

    Still, there seems no room for an altruistic offer to be one of the left-behinds, or any sense of “women and children first” — although you’d need at least a couple of men to insure continuance of the species, but I think the choice of those ought to be left up to the women. 🙂 🙂

  2. It never ceases to amaze me that these people take so much on themselves, and always in the wrong way.

  3. I subbed in a 6th grader classes yesterday (Middle School) and I had to have them fill out a questionnaire on “ME.” It asked very personal questions about their families, habits, things they are ashamed of, etc. They hated filling it out and I hated having to give it to them.

    1. I thank God I don’t have to do that anymore.
      We didn’t have stuff like that when you and I were in school. Our parents would never have tolerated it!

  4. I subbed in sixth grade classes yesterday. They had to fill our a questionnaire with personal questions about their life and families – a lot of questions! They hated filling the out and I hated giving them out.
