    I was wondering about this. Why are teachers allowed to take a captive audience (their students) and shove their vices and their political ideology down their throats.

    The students really don't have a choice but to sit there and listen to a activist teacher filling their heads full of nonsense. When the kids come home and repeat this to their parents some go nuts. Some sue. Some start home-schooling. Some meekly put up with it because they feel powerless.

    When I was in school, especially H.S., we had roundtable discussions about abortion or whatever the big issue of the day was, but the teachers rarely tried to tell us that we had to think a certain way. They asked what our opinions were, not tell us what our opinions should be.

    Our kids are constantly being bombarded with nonsense. Listening to the SCOTUS hearings on Obamacare it seems that clarity is rare and common-sense is hard to find.

    Can't a teacher who abuses his or her authority be guilty of a crime. Why isn't there a problem with teachers that abuse the trust they have earned to be in charge of our kids for 8 hours a day? If they're screwing up our kids can't we do anything about it?

    Why make this into a criminal issue? Surely it is a disciplinary matter for the school authorities?

    .

    I don't know about the word "illegal", but there's certainly no place for political propagandizing in a taxpayer-funded institution, particularly when the "audience" is a bunch of children.

    When my kids were in grade school, we had MANY conversations about stuff their teachers said, and what they said was ALWAYS coming from the Left. Since I want my kids to be independent thinkers (and not partisan sheep), I had to make a strong and consistent effort to (1) ask them what went on in school that day, (2) show them the other side of each argument and (3) remind them that there is always two sides to a story and to question everything, because partisans lie with great regularity. They're older now, but we still talk about that.

    There is no excuse for pushing political agendas in public schools, zero, nada, none, period.

    Since disciplinary action would result in no real punishment at all it has to be a crime. Besides, this is from top to bottom an ideological movement that begins at the Department of Education. This needs to be handled at the state and local level.

    Watching the SCOTUS hearings reveals just how full of crap liberal ideology is. They're allowed to get away with shoving this crap down your kids throats turning this country into a bunch of Jew-hating, Polar Bear hugging imbeciles willing to vote for any unqualified candidate simply because they hate coal and play pickup games with Jeremy Lin and other NBA players.

    Libs became teachers to do exactly what they are doing. Teachers have a mission, to undo all the damage done at home by parents.

    Oh....we only need just so many laws.

    No more and no less.

    Tell that to the Obama Administration.

    How many new regulations did they shove at us in the last 12 months???

    Nobody is keeping track.....but it in the thousands.

    I guess regulations are only important when it's what you want to regulate.

    I would say the same thing to the Administration.
    I'm only trying to be consistent here. More legislation and greater central control is NOT the answer.

    I mentioned that this needs to be handled at the state an local level.

    It seems our federal government is beyond help.....at least for the next 10 months.
