    teaching was expose the capitalist system (I taught history and economics to both k-12 and union workers.  I frequently got away with it because I was a nice white middle-aged lady by the time I went into the system, so I just closed the door and did my thing.  Sometimes, I would get caught and chastised -- pleaded innocense and naivete as long as I could. You should have seen it when I had the Dead Presidents in my class. Eventually, they figured it out.  but in the meantime, my students and I had some fun.   Nothing is more satisfying than getting past the propaganda and waking young people up to the realities of life.
