Wow. Advanced calculus. Nice! Pretty sure I failed algebra and I still have trouble counting how many tree stands I hung. You have chosen the only school subject that cannot be politicized. I can only speak for my little community, but ours is rural and extremely liberal. I am very in tune with what is being taught and do a lot of re teaching my youngsters when they get home from school at night, mostly social studies and yes, science. I don't tell them how to think. I make sure they have all views so they make their own informed opinions. This is how our local teachers fail, by teaching opinion as fact.Well, if you're asking me what should be in an AP Calculus curriculum, I think I'm qualified to provide input. If it is the social studies curriculum, I am not. What happens in a typical classroom is very much controlled by the individual teacher. Yes, there are liberal teachers out there...and conservative too. In Iowa it somewhat varies urban versus rural. I'm sure there are things on CNN that would be totally appropriate for certain classrooms, and other things that would obviously not be. The same would be true about FOX. The point I was making is that conservative outlets so often paint with the broad brush that says public schools are training little liberal brain-washed robots who aren't capable of independent rational thought. I've been in enough schools and know enough faculty members to tell you that this just isn't the case on a wide scale. My 2 cents...about time for the next class to show up!
