    Default LA school Field trip

    So this is what is being taught in LA schools, how they are spending their money, and they are actually teaching this stuff? WOW!!!!!

    Individuals acting on their own time supporting causes they believe in. While I disagree with them, there is nothing wrong with that. This did not happen during school hours, it was not school sponsored, it was not school funded. Not a school field trip. Nothing to do with LAUSD - except that teachers and students were involved during their off time.

    Was going to post more or less the same thing. Nothing stopping idiots from acting like idiots on their own time.

    I agree that regardless of the opinions expressed, it's okay if it wasn't done with taxpayer dollars. I wonder if the "Revolutionaries Looking On" would have made the headline if they had been George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.

    Even though it isn't on school grounds, it shows what teachers are teaching the students. It is sad when just being proud of your country is taught to be racist. We will pay for this type of thought in many ways down the road.

    It isn't necessarily the teachers doing the teaching here... They are definitely helping the students learn the art of protesting, but I'd imagine many of the students that went, went there because of family beliefs.

    It shows what these particular teachers, in a specific area, are teaching on their own time. I have taught for years and I don't teach this sort of thing. Richardson has taught for many many many many many many many many years (one room school houses come to mind) and I am pretty sure he doesn't teach this sort of thing.

    It is sad when just being proud of your country is taught to be racist.

    It is a big country, and this was an isolated incident that wasn't even part of the district.

    If you are afraid of our educational system I might suggest you homeschool any kids you have, or may have. If you are really that paranoid about the future of this nation I might suggest that if/when you get the resources you relocate. I am not asking you to leave - you have a right to your views - I'd prefer you stay as I happen to think a variety of viewpoints are important. But if you truly believe as you posted I can not imagine why you wouldn't at least consider it.

    I understand what you are saying. I just think that if you come to this country looking for a better life and get it, count your blessings. Quit trying to make it like the country you wish your old one was. This is America and people need to respect our heritage instead of teaching that we are racist. And I didn't say it was every teacher, so calm down. I was responding to this particular article. And I'm sure it isn't the only incident, although I also know it isn't every school or teacher. I'm saying it shouldn't be ANY of them.

    By the way, do you think that the native americans who were here when the white man first came over should have just welcomed us with open arms? Or should they have tried to protect their land, like they did? I don't want to get too off subject, but the thought that it's no big deal to just open your borders is ridiculous and that is why they are protesting a law that checks for legality.

    Now, if you say the natives should have been allowed to protect their land, then you would have to agree that we should protect it now. If you say that they should have just embraced diversity and let us come in and take over without a fight, then you are calling them racists for what they did (which was just trying to protect what was theirs).

    You did say this;

    Even though it isn't on school grounds, it shows what teachers are teaching the students.

    This is clearly using "teacher" in a generic way.

    You also said this;

    It is sad when just being proud of your country is taught to be racist. We will pay for this type of thought in many ways down the road.

    In combination with your previous sentence, within the same paragraph, it is suggesting a macro viewpoint when this is obviously a micro situation.
