Such was the case today when I read some of the comments on the Joplin Globe page about a page-one story in today's paper detailing the efforts of teachers to bring the Mueller report into the classroom.
Apparently, many of those who comment are of the belief that the classrooms at our local schools are filled with radical leftists who want nothing better than to indoctrinate their children and put visions of socialism dancing in their heads.
A couple of examples:
Yes,,,, by very LIBERAL instructors. I can bet how it will be presented. Mush brain students will love it.
This will disillusion those people whose views of classroom teachers are shaped by Fox News, but there are more conservative Republicans teaching in local classrooms than liberal Democrats...and there are probably more people who do not care about politics one way or another.
The ranks of area teachers are also filled with Christians who do more by the examples they set than could be accomplished by a curriculum filled with Bible classes approved by Ben Baker and Ed Emery.
Teachers reflect their communities.
The good teachers encourage children to think, but do not tell them what to think. Take the time and get to know some of them.
