As Goes California, So Goes the Nation

The undeniable bias in public schools–especially in California–is appalling. Check out this video on things going on NOW on silencing Christians and promoting Islam in public school.

  • I am a Christian social studies teacher. Personally, I think this video is a little extremist. i've never know a teacher to require students to quote/learn scriptures. We do read/examine as primary source to discuss the belief system, but never require the things that were presented in this video. As a world history teacher, we must teach all historical origins. How can you understand the middle east without understanding the religion that feeds into their governance/political structure? I also teach units on Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. It's about understanding the culture of a region, why the people behave the way they do. Additionally, I am teaching students to be tolerant of other belief systems. It's about teaching eliminating prejudices. When most teachers approach these units, they don't attempt to proselytize or convert. When I teach, if a student asks questions involving religious beliefs, I refer them to their religious leaders. While I don't agree with these beliefs/philosophies, but I think it is important understanding today's conflicts and more about our world.
