Today I'm subbing at Mission San Jose High School and my job today is to show videos to my classes. Two classes will watch Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and the rest will watch Bowling for Columbine. These "documentaries" are little more than lame propaganda. The students are watching them and taking it all in. They say the teacher is having them watch it to learn about good documentaries.
Before starting the DVD I told the kids they need to think for themselves and not just believe whatever they see or hear or read. It made me feel a little better but I'm not really sure they're going to take it to heart. It's much more likely they'll hear Michael Moore's idiocy and take that to heart. We need to train our kids how to think, not just tell them what to think. That's not happening here.
