Educating Young Liberals
A Washington, D.C., public school, apparently in an effort to shape students like the majority of residents in the District of Columbia, recently assigned sixth-graders a homework assignment that required students to compare former President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler.
The assignment, given out at McKinley Tech Middle School, asked them to draw examples from two assigned reading texts and fill in a Venn diagram with similarities and differences between the two. "Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions. Please refer to your texts, 'Fighting Hitler -- A Holocaust Story' and 'Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD' to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler," the assignment read.
