I have often considered the very Left-Wing bias of the vast majority of teachers, certainly in England and Wales, as being unfortunate but benign. They are taught to believe that anything remotely Left as coming straight from the Fountain; and everything apart from the Lefty gospel as ‘verboten’, unclean and disgusting, and attempt to pass on their beliefs straight into the unquestioning minds of their young charges. I always assumed that, like my own three kids, the kids of today were imbued with a healthy scepticism from the word ‘go’, especially when it came to things outwith the strict curriculum; as they have access to literally a whole world of facts, essays and argument care of, natch; the Internet.
When my own kids were still at school, after a chance conversation with one of my brood, I wandered down to the school, and had a quiet discussion with both the headmaster, and the lecturer in question on the subject of the supposition that school was supposed to be about unbiased thought, the law, and of course a warning that my kids weren’t to be indoctrinated by a communist sympathiser. If memory serves, the words ‘block’, ‘knock’ and ‘your’ were in use during that discussion. No threats, no promise of physicality were mentioned except in purely hypothetical terms. If memory also serves, the subject matter was never discussed during school hours, certainly with my son, ever again.
So imagine my perplexity when I learn that a new Channel 4 documentary shows British teachers telling pupils there are “a lot of similarities between Hitler and Trump”, and suggesting the most important people to look after following the Manchester Arena terror bombing are Muslim pupils.
One scene shows a woman who appears to be a teacher asking her class: “Hands up if you were born elsewhere?”
She goes on to say, “Just because some of us is (sic) an immigrant, I don’t get why people put a negative slant on it.”
I have not watched the documentary yet, but after remembering that the Sec. State for Education has placed a control freak in charge of Ofsted, is also a person engaged in the furtherance of a left-wing agenda for the LesbianBentWeirdies, and is in a same-sex relationship, what else can one expect?
