This alleged letter from a teacher to a parent has been floating around the internet for awhile. Recently it was posted on the Vox Popoli website.
BUT...that doesn't mean it's true. The reason I question whether this letter is true or not is because it's so unbelievable - and such a perfect example of Marxist brainwashing at work - that it's almost too good, if you catch my drift.
But if it IS true, God help us all. And that's why we homeschool.
Dear Mrs. [Redcated],
You may already know this, but in case Alex has neglected to tell you, I am assigning him to detention for one hour this Friday, April 22nd. The reason is as follows:
Alex consistently defied me. During class he contradicted me numerous times when I insisted that the length of one kilometer was greater than that of one mile. Every other student in class accepted my lesson without argument, but your son refused to believe what I told him, offering such rebuttals as, “You’re lying to the class,” and commanding other students to challenge my curriculum.
Although he was correct, Alex’s actions show a blatant disregard for authority, and a complete lack of respect for his school. In the future, Alex would be better off simply accepting my teachings without resistance.
Please see to it your son understands this.
