Education or Indoctrination

Welcome back to Simple Man Politics on this Labor Day holiday my friends. I thought long and hard about whether or not I should write a blog for today before I decided it was the right thing to do. The reason I think it was the right decision for me to write one today is because tomorrow President Obama is going to give a speech to children in public schools that accept tax money for their programs.

Now I personally do not have anything against President Obama addressing our children if he is promoting better education in our public schools. I also think that he could accomplish the same thing with a simple P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement) However I believe that President Obama’s original intent was not to promote better education in our public schools.

I and many others whom I know and trust believe that his original intent with this speech was to bring politics into the classroom and give him a platform from which to express his ideological views and impress them upon impressionable children through indoctrination. This is evidenced by the lesson plan that was to be attached to the speech he planned to give that required our children to write down how he inspires them and how they can help him promote his agenda.

I really don’t like the idea of our public schools being used as a political tool to indoctrinate our children with any political party ideology or beliefs. I also realize that it is almost impossible to stop this from happening considering the liberal political influence that already exists in most of our universities as well as most of our nation’s school boards which are infested with the same ideological beliefs.

As a parent I am more concerned with my children’s education than their political beliefs. I do not feel that my children need to be worried about what their political orientation is going to be right now. That is because they will ultimately make that decision when they are able to become involved in the election process. I am not alone in this belief either, because I am hearing the same thing from parents all around this country.

As far as I am concerned, if the speech Obama intends to deliver to our children on Tuesday September 8th 2009 has nothing whatsoever to do with my children’s classes then it should not be aired in any school public or private. By the same token I think that they ought to trash the lesson plan for the speech also. It is the schools job to teach my children academically and my job to teach them everything else. It is not some politician’s job to do either.

I have already instructed my children’s school that they are not to subject my children in any way, shape, or form to both the speech and the lesson plan. After I had informed the school of my wishes there was a meeting at the schools district office where it was decided that the schools in the district would neither air the speech, or distribute the lesson plan. However that may not be the decision of all the school districts in our country.

That is all for now from Simple Man Politics my friends. I hope all of you who are parents take note of this attempt by Obama to make your children’s school a political battleground and put in our two cents worth and stop it. However I also hope that this speech is nothing more than an attempt to just keep our children interested in school. I hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day, CIAO4NOW!!!!!


i agree all the way with ur blog..thanks!
