Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?

Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?

by Djehuty

One state is in the process of moving one step closer to that Orwellian Society that we all fear, but we know will eventually come to fruition. 

Lawmakers in Arizona are proposing legislation that would prohibit “any instructor in a public school or college from advocating or opposing a political candidate or one side of a social, political, or cultural issue that is part of a partisan debate.”

While supporters feel the law will help students in disagreements with their instructors, opponents say that the bill will “discourage instructors from leading discussions and debates on controversial issues.”

Senate Majority Leader Thayer Verschoor, the politician who wrote the bill, is quoted in the Associated Press as saying: “In any class, any issue could be discussed as long as the instructor is neutral on the issue and not telling you what your conclusion should be.”

While the senator’s statement seems reassuring, it is possible that this legislation, if passed, could highly restrict any flow of political opinions in our nation’s schools.
