Another thread in the long list of “what’s wrong with our school system?”
From a Randi Commentary:
Failed for having an opposing viewpoint? And what the hell is a “wellness class” anyway?
Can a public school teacher bring in any guest speaker and expect students to believe whatever he says? How about a guest speaker with accreditation on the benefits of magnetic shoe inserts? UFOlogists? Dowsers?
Shouldn’t a teacher be obligated to allow opposing viewpoints? Even encourage students to debate (or at least discuss) the subject at hand? On what authority does a teacher pass judgement on students who have the presense of mind to think for themselves?
