Educational ignorance...

Recommended Posts

We expect a lot from the educators in our society. Teachers are supposed to be the ones who give children their first real glimpse at broader knowledge. Certainly more than they can glean from television and Sesame Street. Or maybe they can teach them something ignorant like this:

The amused reaction of young children to the word "gay" says a lot about how much they really know, or haven't been taught. For them to immediately assume that gay means homosexual precludes the origin of the word as used in this Christmas carol. This was a teachable moment tossed out the window by the ignorance of the teacher.

It also says a lot about her ability to teach, or not. Do they give teachers detention? Perhaps a little punishment is in order. :spank:
