Don't Squelch HIs Creativity
23 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Having been in education for over forty years, I didn't find this as far fetched as it seemed to be. The sad thing is that this kind of thinking will have consequences down the line. In a syntactic way, the boy was right, but had never had to look at two different views. The lynch mob that forms doesn't usually address academics but all the other ills of the world wafted on our schools (pardon my soapbox). Anyway, this is an exaggeration. It makes me wonder if she wanted to go to court later and make her case for getting back pay for the other moneys that she was "shorted." People keep using the term "political correctness." I don't really think that's the issue here.
