Resistance Is Futile

Borepatch recently posted about how a student ‘got in trouble’ for correcting a public school teacher in class.

It’s sad that the teacher – and, by extension, the administration – are so short-sighted that admitting they were wrong and finding of fact is not the message.

Towing the line and shutting up is.

“…accepting my teaching without resistance.”

Preparing the children for the future.  They don’t need re-education camps, they already have them.
(and this was in 1994!)

  1. One does wonder just what it takes to convince parents that their precious children do not belong in the government indoctrination camps at all. Resistance IS futile… you cannot reform a rotten egg into a fresh one. It must be destroyed and replaced. And what rotted the egg is government involvement in the first place…

    The indoctrination of children to become non-thinking drones and docile slaves is the whole point of government “school.” The fact that it has been in place for more than 50 years is one good reason far too many parents can’t see the problems. They mostly have never developed the ability to think critically and blindly accept the mush they are fed.

    But, by some miracle, a growing number of people are waking up and removing their children from this horribly toxic environment. There are many alternatives now, and the best is yet to come as the children blessed with these alternatives grow and begin to explore the universe again.🙂

    • Didn’t Karl Hess say that public school was just one giant baby-sitting service?
      And with the Progressive mindset taking over the schools for the past 60+ years…
      Hopefully, the teacher’s unions won’t restrict access to the alternatives.
      Yeah, right.

      • Mere “baby sitting” would be far, far preferable to the current reality. I spent most of my 30 year nursing career teaching. I put in a few years at the community college and left because we were not really teaching nursing, but compliance with government regulations! I was severely reprimanded a number of times for efforts to encourage independent and critical thinking. Our students were to memorize the stock answers and be ready to “follow orders.” Nothing else mattered.

        All the rest of my teaching experience was in private practice, where the actual nuts and bolts of real nursing were at least as important as the regulations and BS.

  2. Ack! This is terrifying! I love it when my students challenge me–it proves they’re listening.

  3. This might be a duplicate comment, workpress sometimes autofills some of the log in details over one another and when you try and clear it just disappears.

    In any event.

    I opted out of high school and started college at 14. I was not a genius, I was just bright enough to realize I didn’t want to watch the same health film over and over again, with classes taught by teachers who were born and would die in the same small town, giving us just enough skills to graduate and take our place in the factory. No thanks.
