The New Geography
Here’s today’s argument in favor of home schooling, as a geography teacher in Colorado is caught on tape in an astounding anti-American rant: High school teacher’s comments investigated by district. (Hat tip: Generation Why?)
AURORA - A 16-year-old boy at Overland High School doesn’t want to hear what he calls his teacher’s left-wing political rants.
Sean Allen frequently recorded his teachers to back up his notes. Allen recorded Jay Bennish, his 10th grade World Geography teacher, making comments about President Bush’s State of the Union Address. Allen’s father claims the comments made in the recording are biased and inappropriate for a geography class.
“I’m not saying Bush and Hitler are exactly the same, obviously they’re not. OK? But there are some eerie similarities to the tones that they use,” says Bennish in his critique of U.S. economic and foreign policy.
That’s not all he said. Here’s the recording. You won’t believe it.
