If the school were simply blocking anything controversial, that alone would be a problem. These are high school students who shouldn’t be sheltered from current issues. But that’s not what’s going on. The school is blocking one side so that it can control the conversation and prevent students from finding information that contradicts the liberal party line. Nonnewaug is a public school—a place where students should be able to learn both sides of a story without bias. Of course, that sounds like a pretty radical idea to today’s public school administrators.
Andrew took the issue to the school board. Board members agreed that this was troubling and said that they would look into it. I’m optimistic that common sense will prevail. If you have a high school student in your family, ask them to check out the school’s website and see if it gives both sides of a controversial issues.
