A teacher in Washington State apparently decided it was a great idea to send students home with homework that included a “report card” for President Donald Trump. To make matters worse? The students who were asked these questions are FIRST GRADERS.
So my daughter brought this home from school. Seems like unusual questions to ask a 1st grader, especially the third question. Would they have asked the same questions while Obama was President? pic.twitter.com/SLlk9X02Xt

What first grader knows anything about politics or what’s happening on a legislative level?
Of course they wouldn’t have asked that question.
They would have asked, “Should Obama be president for life? If you don’t think so, explain why you’re a racist.”

So. Flipping. TRUE.
I’d put none of your business on d all the above!!!!!

Or “I’m too young to understand politics.”
If I were a conspiracy person, I would say they are probing the parents. But that could never happen because we have Common Core. It isn't a data collection system, just homogeneous education for our kids to make them all the same with no ill intentions of the government.

Of course not! The government is AMAZING.

It's obviously to screen parents, which is reprehensible.

Screen them for what though? Will the school suddenly only educ
I’d be having some words the next day with the superintendent.

Similar questions were asked during the Obama years. Inappropriate then and now.

Doesn’t matter who’s in office, it’s inappropriate.
Send him back with high marks and argue it well. If she gets marked down, post it here and pursue it further.
It's an interesting activity, but it feels like an indoctrination trap. Like the teacher who wanted to fail her student because he refused to say God didn't exist.

Well, they are trying to drop the voting age to 16. Maybe they ultimately want to lower it to 6…

UGH. We’re all doomed.
Wow. Indoctrination much? This, coupled with ever growing mass shootings and bullying issues in schools are enough of a reason to abolish the federal requirement for education. The internet has enough information to learn anything these days. Compulsory education is dying.
