..in the arena for ideas, again by Progressives. This time as they attack children in New York for having a different idea.
A 13-year-old at Orange-Ulster BOCES in New York was suspended for two days last week for the heinous crime of telling her classmates and friends that they did not have to sit for Common Core examinations. Never mind that she was telling the truth—the exams are entirely voluntary. Never mind that the word had to come from her because the school administration, in their transparency, had withheld this information from parents.
These Progressives are so terrified of opposing speech that the school’s principle hadn’t even found the courage to talk with the girl’s parents at the time this story broke.
What is it with Progressives that they’re so terrified of contesting their ideas against those of others? Again, I ask: might it be because they know their own principles are so inadequate?
