Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?

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.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!

Heya! It seems as though we both have a passion for
the same thing. Your blog, “Generation Cobweb » Blog Archive ? Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?” and mine
are very similar. Have you ever thought of writing a guest post for a similar website?

It will certainly help gain publicity to your website (my site recieves a lot of targeted traffic).
If you’re interested, contact me at: jodycoyle@gmx.net. Thanks for your time

Help for such an emergency is available on weekends, late
at night and Sunday afternoons. It will always be better to select a plumber from the company with high reputation
as stable companies would not risk their reputation by assigning the task to a plumber who doesn’t comply with the company and the customer’s standards.

In most cases, people would simply turn their systems off whenever they feel that the temperature
is already suitable for what they need.

It is okay to have drive and ambition but do not set thee
expectation that you deserve to be inn management shortly after graduating from university.
If a con-artist successfully avoids detection long
enough to get adequate money from their victims, market volatility will eventually nmask their deceptions.
It is the investment bbanks that address concerns onn mergers of companies or
acquisition of new properties.
