School Indoctrination Time

Now that my oldest daughter is in high school, the indoctrination machine has begun to operate in earnest (although I have to say my town is not nearly as bad as others I have heard about). Last night, she told us that in science class today, they'll be watching the Goracle's An Inconvenient Truth. I asked if she knew if the teacher would be showing the opposite side, and she guessed no.

So then I asked if she would be comfortable asking if the teacher would be willing to show BBC's The Great Warming Swindle, which I have on DVD, and she said she would do it. Will the teacher say yes? I'll let you know.

I wouldn't hold my breath on expecting balance in a public school classroom, but good on ya for trying to squeeze it in there.

If she doesn't get anywhere, I will contact the teacher myself...and if I get no satisfaction, I will go to the administration, etc. I'm sick of this crap!

So what was the outcome? I've been watching for an update. I'm assuming you got no response from the teacher (that's the norm with our public schools, unless it's about the kids doing something wrong). Any luck with the administration folks?

My apologies...

They didn't actually watch it last week; my daughter thinks she got the date wrong. They've spent the last few days preparing for a big test slated for tomorrow (May 9). Perhaps they'll watch it later this week or early next week. I will definitely let you know if they do and if the teacher agrees/doesn't agree to show the opposing view.
