    I was rather open about not presenting "court history", but everyone had the opportunity to have their say as long as it was done respectfully.

    If the teacher in question was proselytizing and not allowing opposing viewpoints, then she should be reprimanded, but not terminated.  

    The nonsense about "not following the prescribed curriculum" doesn't impress me. With the coming of the common core, our educational system is becoming more sanitized and sterilized.

      would be happier if they allowed some discussion of religion, as long as it wasn't the kind of bullying-proselytizing we see so much these days, which is a backlash against what they see as a "war on Christianity."

      When I was attending high school in the late 60's-early 70's, even though I went to a conservative school in a conservative town, relatively, I think there was more discussion of ideas than there is now, from what I can gather.
      How can we go back to a view of education that goes beyond the simple transmission of "certain minimum levels of non-controversial data" which education has become, to some point.

      You can't make this stuff up.
