Another Reason to Homeschool: Crackmonkey Teachers

| | Comments (0)
OK, yes, this is not an actual school. And it is not public, but my aversion to school is not limited to public schools.

Check out these crackmonkeys, teaching their children that private property is evil, by using Legos.

Into their coffee shops and houses, the children were building their assumptions about ownership and the social power it conveys -- assumptions that mirrored those of a class-based, capitalist society -- a society that we teachers believe to be unjust and oppressive. As we watched the children build, we became increasingly concerned.

These teachers vote to take away my property rights. This is the definition of injustice and oppression. And they are creating conformists to follow their illegitimate lead:

We ... discussed our beliefs about our role as teachers in raising political issues with young children. We recognized that children are political beings, actively shaping their social and political understandings of ownership and economic equity -- whether we interceded or not. We agreed that we want to take part in shaping the children's understandings from a perspective of social justice.

Bottom line: people who think that taking away basic human rights is "justice" have no business teaching children, or anyone else. They are thoroughly incapable.
