Unfortunately, realistic show of the times.
10 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up during this era and remember this show well. I remember MANY teachers like this; not fondly.

In short, it was the start of when, instead of teaching the subject they were hired to, teachers started to impose their personal, often political, views on students, whether asked for or not, whether relevant to the subject being taught or not. Mind control and brainwashing are other terms for the same thing.

Interestingly, it was also the same time that student scores for the three R's of reading, 'rithmetic, and 'riting started their massive slide, which continues to this day......coincidence ? Hardly; the teachers were to busy spewing their ideology instead of teaching.
