Teacher Placed on Leave for Noticing Double Standard on Staged Student Walkouts

The media and the education establishment have advanced their shared agenda recently by egging on students to protest against our right to bear arms rather than attend class. The point is to portray these Astroturf protests as spontaneous expressions of the righteous rage of innocent youth. Actually, the protests were organized by the same professional ultraleft agitators who staged the pussy hat marches. Would educrats give students leave to cut classes for a cause that is not left-wing? A high school teacher in Rocklin, California who asked this question received a definitive answer when she was placed on administrative leave:

Julianne Benzel told CBS13 that she suspects she got in trouble for suggesting that schools administrators who condoned the student walkout might be practicing a double standard.

“And so I just kind of used the example which I know it’s really controversial, but I know it was the best example I thought of at the time,” said Benzel. “[If] a group of students nationwide, or even locally, decided ‘I want to walk out of school for 17 minutes’ and go in the quad area and protest abortion, would that be allowed by our administration?”

Her students saw her point, and the discussion—which took place last week—was fruitful, according to Benzel. But on Wednesday, the teacher received a call that she had been placed on leave.

School officials confirmed that she was in hot water for her “communications regarding today’s student-led [yeah right] civic engagement activities.”

Pointing out that the emperor is naked is good for society, but not for your career if you work in education. You are not supposed to teach kids to think. You are supposed to teach them that if they dutifully regurgitate leftist dogma, they will receive a pat on the head and maybe even 15 minutes of fame like David Hogg.
