This incident speaks volumes of the poor education system that we have allowed to flourish in this country. This social studies teacher does not understand her own country. How can she be expected to teach her pupils what she herself does not comprehend? She obviously has no intellectual curiosity – often siting ‘the news’ for her opinions. She knows what she has been told. Too bad these kids are stuck with a ‘teacher’ that is less interested in ensuring that her students can think for themselves than she is in them toting the party line.
