“I don’t want our schools turned over to some socialist movement.”

The above quote comes from a "concerned parent" in Pearland, Texas about President Obama's upcoming streaming education address.

Any willing volunteers to let concerned parent guy in on the well-known secret that the public school is inherently "socialist"? Along with our law enforcement, firefighting and road system?

Not to mention the military.

Man, the insidious socialist conspiracy is! Turns out that Col. Ripper was right about the Flouridation, after all.

I teach about the Columbian Exchange and Western Expansionism from the perspective of the indigenous populations (just one of many perspectives).

That alone has been reason enough for parents to question me about my non-traditional (read: Socialist)"agenda".

If critical thinking is an agenda, then YES, I have one.

Fear has the ignorant firmly in its grip.
