Here’s the ultimate in Both Sides:
SOUTHLAKE, Texas — A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.
Sweet baby Jeebus, what in actual hell does this moron suggest is an opposing alternative to the Holocaust?
“How do you oppose the Holocaust?” one teacher said in response.
“Believe me,” Peddy said. “That’s come up.”
And then the appropriately named Peddy doesn’t provide an answer, other than to suggest removing books.
“The information we have right now is that classroom libraries cannot be used until they have been vetted,” an assistant principal can be heard telling a group of elementary school teachers, instructing them to use the rubric sent by the district to determine which books are appropriate. “So you do need to go back to school and separate the books that have been vetted, and those books need to be available to students. The other ones do not need to be available to students until they have been vetted.”
Now, if your wondering why the Holocaust needs to be taught:
No mention of book burnings in Texas, America’s Lab for Bad Policy. At least not yet.
