Adeeb told NPR in March 2012 that his “students are extremely curious about the Trayvon Martin case. Yesterday, many of them basically engaged in silent solidarity by wearing hoodies.”
That sounds more like an activist’s agenda than an educator’s agenda.
An educator would have students watching the court proceedings before drawing conclusions about the case. But what fun would that be? How could liberal teachers get any spin out of that?
Activist teachers are doing a disservice to students by indoctrinating them with their own biased view of the world. The Martin case could be an excellent civics lesson if teachers would simply let students watch the trial, ask their own questions and form their own opinions.
That’s what education is supposed to be about.
