In case you’ve missed it the far right is in indignant outrage mode about a video allegedly showing a North Carolina teacher flipping out on a student for criticizing Obama. Which may even be true- hard to tell as the supposed vidoe is on youtube amd there is no legitimate press coverage or any comment from (or apparently attempt to) contact the school.
And if true- it is disturbing. But it’s also a single teacher.
And yet, throughout much of the conservatives strongholds we see states actually mandating that schools must teach creationism as an “alternative” to evolution. States mandating the teaching of abstinence only sex education. The conservative Hearltland Institutes trying to get schools to teach that global climate change science is false.
So states forcing teachers to indoctrinate students is fine. But a single teacher freaking out is something to set the world on fire…
