Chain Gang, Bang Bang

Oh Arizona. You have so much potential. Hell, you can be the next best thing to Texas. Its stories like these that make me think Arizona is on the right track.

Apparently, in December, Arizona discouraged classes that potentially segregate students. No brainer. But what does that mean for the Mexican-American history class taught by Tucson ISD? You know, the one that taught history from a Mexico/American perspective? Because apparently, teaching a history class about the overthrow of the US government, resentment towards a particular race, and I don’t know paying close attention to a certain ethnic group isn’t home to possible segregation. At all! Well, the ISD felt that the future of it should be discussed. Enter students. Chained together. Banging around, clappin' about. Causing general mayhem and ruckus that worked so well, the meeting had to be cancelled. Sounds like a typical leftist approach to democracy. Guess the whole debate and POV approach to democracy is just crazy. CRAZY I tell you. Psh. Who needs debate when you can act like a child. Oh wait. They are. Oops. Well, anyway, it worked. But, did it go the way they want to? The council is still going to meet, and you can be sure the kids little "stunt" will be fresh on their minds.

Call me stupid, but I don't understand this. Isn't specialized classes taught from different perspectives a bread and butter for HIGHER education. You know… those pesky big schools that all the big kids go to? If you want to learn a subject from a special perspective, why don’t you... wait for it... seek it out on your own... and gosh, pay for it or something. Or how about this? Al Gore, FATHER OF GREEN, invented this great amazing thing called the internet. Instead of porn or videogames, why don’t you research it on your own. Self education and all. Maybe that’s asking too much. But, I don’t think so.

Grow up Arizona teens.
