One of my daily reads, Yeah Right, is asking for suggestions as to how to educate younger folks on the inevitable failure of the socialist path we’re going down. I’m guessing my thoughts on the matter are pretty obvious (increase the number of conservative teachers, ahem…) but, as I commented over there, parents also need to work on instilling in their children the idea that they need to actively question what their teachers are telling them. If they think that something they’re being taught doesn’t make sense or sounds wrong, they need to have the courage to speak up. Parents need to increase they’re involvement in PTAs and school boards, they need to be active in working to change the curriculum in their local schools, they need to be involved with their children’s homework and ask them about what they’re being taught.
