A history teacher less

In last week’s Independent there was article about the counter-inauguration protestors in Acacia Park. One of the Palmer High School students said she feared expressing herself in class because her history teacher was a Bush supporter. Did you catch that?

It’s one thing to have Republican city officials in the pocket of land developers, or yokels in oversized pickups waving American flags, or pudgy pro-war Christians who condone crimes against humanity, or pro-Bush working poor who never did know on which side their bread wasn’t buttered, it’s quite another to tolerate irresponsible educators in our schools teaching our children -HISTORY no less.

Do we wonder where our so many uninformed, incurious voters came from? We can blame FOX and the rest of the media, but at Palmer we’d have to suspect some pretty curious history lessons.
