Government school in New York asks children to explain why “Jews Are Evil”

Outrage has been growing since it was revealed that a high school English teacher in New York decided to give her 10th grade students a peculiar “creative writing” exercise: They were supposed to pretend that they were low-level Nazi functionaries who, in order to convince an official that
they were loyal, had to research Nazi propaganda and then write a paper arguing “that Jews are evil.”

According to the school district, the teacher wasn’t evil, just misguided. Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard told the local Albany Times Union “I don’t believe there was malice or intent to cause any insensitivities to our families of Jewish faith.” No matter the teacher’s probable motives, the
assignment was so insensitive on its face that fully a third of the 10th graders refused to cooperate with an assignment that told them that “You must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!”

This is exactly why I’m glad to homeschool our two children. I maintain that parents who send their children blindly into government schools are guilty of child abuse plain and simple.
