But Kudos to the Colorado school teacher for pointing out the similarities between Bush and Hitler's rhetoric:
That he has been suspended over his lecture is just ridiculous. Teachers should be allowed to make assertions that cause their students to think for themselves. I guaran-damn-tee that this same idea will be presented to them in virtually every college class they take in the next few years. If they aren't allowed to hear controversial ideas in their youth, they will be shocked by the attitudes on college campuses. I listened to the tape recording of the teacher's lecture and he was not calling Bush Hitler. He was pointing out things in common in their speeches.
Free speech, even of crazy ideas, is essential to a rigorous education. If a teacher has to worry about the party line, the education suffers. Rational humans, YES EVEN high school kids, are capable of thinking for themselves. The erudite student will challenge the professor in the classroom to defend his assertion, not be a wuss and tape record it clandestinely and take it to a radio station. What a little shit!
