Letter: Partisan teachers in Vail Valley?

Michael Schneider
Vail, CO Colorado

Last week a friend of mine proudly commented that her 6-year-old daughter came home from school and told her that she learned who was running for president. When her mother asked who was running her daughter replied “Hillary Clinton … she wants healthcare for everyone … Barack Obama … he loves the planet and animals … and John McCain … he likes war.”

It does not matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, a conservative or a liberal ” this is not something that an impressionable child should hear from a person of authority in school. I would hope that our teaching community would police itself and make sure that our teachers teach and do not proselytize their political views.
