Rumors are swirling that with the impending new more-liberal Congress we’re going to see the rebirth of the Fairness Doctrine in order to shut up conservative talk radio.

Why can’t we have one in education?

Have you listened to your children lately about what their teachers are saying? Think they’re getting presented more than one political philosophy (if so, without contempt for the side that the teacher doesn’t believe in)?

Here’s my idea…

To give teachers a day off, why not have a political philosophy day? Small groups of students can meet with representatives and learn first-hand about some of the policies and stances of a party and let them ask questions.

Maybe even get them to start (gasp!) thinking for THEMSELVES.

This won’t happen in my lifetime, but if Congress truly believed in fairness (which it obviously does not) they would do more to de-politicize the schools.
