  •  our last line of reason (7+ / 0-)

    and our last hope for truth is in the hands of the teachers.
    The teevee won't educate us, the radio, the newspapers, the magazines, all of them spew the same lies. Only face to face, one teacher in one classroom at a time will the truth about our country be able to be told. Sorry to burden you with my idea TK but I don't see any other way to fight them. I hope there are many many men and women like yourself out there teaching at all levels. I really do think it's our last best hope.

    And that quote is sufficient argument for me to continue to struggle to teach government honestly, to provoke my students to participate in the processes in the hope if not yet fully the belief that by their participation they may be able to make a difference.

    The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same." Carlos Castaneda
