Here is another objectionable assignment given to students at a public school in St. Joseph, Illinois. The sophomore class was given the assignment to choose which of ten people are “worthy” of getting kidney dialysis when the hospital had only six machines for the ten who needed one. The assignment instructed the students, “Four people are not going to live. You must decide from the information below which six will survive.” The students were given the list of the ten who desperately need kidney dialysis with identification about their occupation, age and ethnicity, and told to give each a score. The instructions state: “Put the people in order using 1-10, 1 being the person you want to save first and 10 being the person you would save last.” It was assumed that those getting scores 7 through 10 would be marked for death.
Since when are high school students allowed to judge who may live and who must die? What students are taught in the classroom will affect their attitudes for the next generation and how they vote. Is this assignment to prepare them to accept Death Panels in Obamacare?
