This post is not to be a political war field, but I thought this was inappropriate to force high schoolers to listen to this. Should I write a letter to the directors of my school? A number of people I have talked to have said they would send letters as well. What do you think?
Don't worry! I am an educator with two MA degrees. Believe me! In all of my seven years of college I took much of what I learned with a grain of salt. The other people responding to your statements have essentially told you to have faith in your own reasoning power. Please remember that he was presenting a point of view (that I tend to disagree with). Of course, the school should present a "balance" and provide a guest speaker that would articulate another opinion. I love education and I love teaching, but one should always examine the arguments presented by a teacher, student or guest speaker and formulate one's own opinion. You are okay!!! I assure you!!!!!!!!

If the school wants to invite a socialist speaker then they need to invite a conservative speaker to make a counter point.

(What time do I need to be there.)

I have this really bad feeling that either Hillary or Obama will be our next president. I wonder if Ted Kennedy has ever considered running as vice president. I'm afraid we're soooooo screwed!
