An email request sent to my daughter's teacher last year, wherein I stated my request to have my daughter excused from repeated classroom viewings of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, Al Gore's fableAn Inconvenient Truth, etc. apparently became something of water-cooler buzz with the teacher crowd.
Considering some of the statements I've made on other topics, I didn't expect anything to come from this.
On the contrary, I've experienced considerable feedback on this issue. When the fact that some of these 'documentaries' are sometimes included in the prepared curriculum - effectively taking the responsibility of exposing pro-leftist, anti-right wing propaganda films to our kids out of the hands of the educators and placing it in the hands of the school boards and/or the provincial government - the tone of the responses became much more angry.
I've decided to go to the readers on this one. Check out the poll question on the left sidebar and have your say.
Should Al Gore/Michael Moore Films Be Part of the Curriculum in Public Schools?
