He seethed, but bit his tongue. At his urging his parents moved him to what turned out to be another left-wing Jewish educational institution. He experienced the same aspects of liberal indoctrination at his new school, which he attended from the middle of 2nd grade to the middle of 5th grade. The coup de grace was when he was required to sign a commitment to reduce his carbon footprint. Sam refused and told his parents to send him to public school, because they should not be paying for this left-wing propaganda when they could get it for free.
And indeed they got it, courtesy of the Beverly Hills public school system. After Scott Brown was elected to the US Senate, one of his teachers, Kate Biggs, stated in class that “Right-wing Nazis are taking office all over the place.” From then on, Sam started taking notes of the slanted comments that this teacher was making in class. Biggs instructed him to stop taking notes in class – a rather novel educational approach.
So Sam started a petition to get Biggs to stop the politicalization of the classroom by her constant injection of a left-wing agenda inside the classroom. 32 students signed on, at which point Biggs started to threaten kids that she would lower their grades. Sam went to the school Principal and Biggs retaliated by failing Sam. Finally, Sam and his parents took the case to the Interim Superintendent of the Beverly Hills School District, Dick Douglas, who said he would investigate the matter and get back to them. He never did. A family friend of some influence met with Douglas and was informed that it would cost $250,000 to remove Biggs due to tenure. Biggs, regrettably, is still employed by Beverly Hills today.
Sam’s family has moved to Burbank, California. Both Sam and his father have expressed interest in home-schooling, principally so Sam would not have to endure teachers attempting to brainwash him regarding left-wing elected officials, global warming, feminist agendas, or “demasculinization.”
That would be a shame. We need voices in the classroom challenging teachers who force political claptrap down the throats of susceptible young children while their parents are paying for them to learn reading, writing and history. Sam may be somewhat unique, but I like to think of him as a role model. We need more Sams to protect the children. Maybe Sam needs to start an academy to train others. Then maybe Horowitz and Coulter and other right-of- center speakers might start to receive a positive reception at college campuses.
