Creating Hive Minds! Bill Introduced To Block Teachers From Discussing “Controversial Issues”!

The Hill.com      By Justin Wise                  Mon., Dec. 31, 2018

An Arizona state lawmaker recently introduced a bill that would bar teachers from introducing “controversial issues” or engaging in any “political, ideological or religious” advocacy in their classroom.

State Rep. Mark Finchem (R) introduced House Bill 2002 in the Arizona State Legislature earlier this month, according to The Arizona Daily Star. The newspaper notes that if the bill were to pass, teachers could potentially lose their jobs for engaging in political or ideological discussions with their students.

The bill would require teachers to undergo annual ethics training and to abide by a strict ethics code. The code would bar teachers from introducing a “controversial issue” unrelated to a class subject. It would also prohibit teachers from publicly supporting or opposing any legislative, judicial or executive action.

Among other things, the bill also would prevent teachers from placing blame on one racial group of students for the “suffering and inequities” experienced by another group.

The Star notes that Finchem said in the bill that discussing ideological topics in the classroom leads to “indoctrination.”

Finchem declined to comment to the Star. He told The Arizona Republic earlier this month that the bill was a direct response to concerns about politics in the classroom from his constituents.

“If you step into a classroom with a Trump T-shirt, a Hillary T-shirt, a ‘Vote No on 126’ T-shirt, you’re engaging in political speech in the classroom,” he said. “If there’s a political agenda behind it, leave it at home. Simple request.”

Arizona state law prohibits public and charter school employees from utilizing school resources to influence the outcome of an election. The Republic reported that this law was a reason why some school districts warned teachers against wearing #RedForEd apparel in their classroom.

Jason Freed, president of the Tucson Education Association, told the Star that a law prohibiting teachers from discussing controversial issues would reflect poorly on them.

“It is our job to provide kids with an opportunity to think creatively,” Freed said. “It’s our job to help them to analyze whether they think something is good and why, and if it’s not good, how they could make it better.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.

    In other words, the State Mandated ‘Truth$’ Mr Freed advocates or attempting to have legislated to students in AZ are not to be questioned or even discussed in the very classrooms designated to ‘edJEWcate’ them. I smell a rat here. A very distinct and insidious one. Can you say ‘Censorship 101?’

      Thanks bigcree1 — for sure at “smell a rat” and “censorship 101”. Schools and universities should be encouraging “critical thought”. That is certainly not going to happen. I like your “edJEWcate” – exactly and then some! Peace Bro! 🙂

        WOW, bigcree1, I didn’t think there was that much info available on Native religion, philosophy, idealism, humanism and doctrines. I noticed in some of the prayers that they began by addressing the “Great Spirit”, but the “Great Spirit” is never defined, at least I didn’t come across same. Nevertheless, they were all noble ideas and sound advice.

        Thank you, bigcree1 for sharing – very much appreciated.
