Teachers, same the world over…

School forced to apologise after hundreds of pupils were shown slide that listed Ukip alongside BNP and the National Front as a racist group

    We had to complain last year because one of our kids teachers listed all the federal parties in Canada in a hand out to her students and some how forgot to list the ruling Conservative party of Canada.

      At work, I have to defend myself as a Conservative.
      My buddy says he’s a socialist.
      I call him a communist, insisting they are the same thing.
      He called me a Nazi until I said socialist was in their name.
      He got really quiet when I showed him the picture of:
      Socialism means people wait in line for bread.
      Capitalism means the bread waits for people.

      this was common with our two, yet curiously when the staff are called on it, it is always “an oversight” or “editing error.”

    Why would a primary teacher even discuss political parties at all?

    • Exile1981

      In Canada grade 5/6 learn about how the political system in Canada works – ie how PM’s and parliament are selected, how voting works and that there are parties.

      Because she’s not a teacher, she’s a propagandist.

    Teachers consider themselves Progressive and their authority is godlike and not to be challenged.

    • Clausewitz

      Not all. Sadly the asshats get the press.

    Same ole story , ‘Sorry’ (you caught us again, but we know you can’t do anything, anyway, because we are Not responsible for our actions or behaviors because of Our privilege, Entitlement attitude and child-like lack of maturity)

    Our kids are all safely graduated now, but during both childrens K-12 schooling we had to constantly monitor what was being taught, most teachers were OK but the hard core BCTF reps on staff were all extremist feminist marxists that refused all Christian teaching and holidays yet fully embraced the local tribes religion even if it was taught by a German National and half “reconstructed” My kids still tell me of the constant “microaggressions ” that the marxist activists inflicted on the children of aware parents.

      I have to deprogram my kids when they come home.
      Mainly, it’s the global warming crap.

    The progressives in the UK are all pedophiles and allies determined to destroy that nation.

    If thinking that your people deserve their own homeland in their own country makes you a racist, I am a racist. I have nothing against Nigerians for example, but they can live in Nigeria. It all depends how you define your terms.
