Dr. Helen fields a question from a concerned reader:
I’m a middle/high school teacher, of a social-libertarian, economic-conservative bent. All the talk about indoctrination of kids is extraordinarily true. I have kids pass through my class with some of the most insane, Kos-style concepts running through their heads, really doctrinaire hard-liberal stuff. It only got more blatant as the election wore on (and on, and on). I subbed for a fourth grade class in which a girl trotted out the “Bush caused 9/11″ bit. Are you kidding me?
What can I do to help counter this? I’d like to avoid a whole new generation running on Marxist ideology.
Faced with the imminent danger of the Obammunist uprising, I can understand the concern parents might have regarding Marxist indoctrination. This is especially true given the events of the past few months. If your true concern is an entire generation running on Marxist ideology, after the Bush era 700 billion dollar bailouts (and we shouldn’t overlook the several trillions in loans) of the Wizards of Wall Street, my advice to you is to not let your kid grow up to be a Republican stock broker.
I am always happy to help folks out with these troubling questions.
