No, “to promote social justice, to be change agents, and to recognize individual and institutionalized racism, sexism, homophobia, and classism,” and to “break silences” about those things and “develop anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-sexist community [sic] and alliances.”/blockquotebr /br /Wow, time for indoctrination but our kids can’t read or reason–no wonder so many parents are homeschooling. But my real question is, with the shortage of male teachers, who is “breaking the silence” about institutionalized sexism?br /br /Udate: a href=”http://althouse.blogspot.com/2006/01/gender-gap-in-education.html” Ann Althouse /aalso discusses the gender gap in education.
