A high school teacher in Colorado — my home state — is up to his eyeballs in controversy after stating in his classroom that President Bush is like Hitler and that America is “probably the single most violent nation on planet Earth.” Was this a political science class? A comparative history class? How about American history? Current events? No, on all counts. The teacher’s personal political views were part of his lecture in his world geography class. Yes, Hitler is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of world geography, too.
This is why we homeschool.
Update: continued in Colorado controversy, continued
