A Convenient Truth: Indoctrination in Olentangy

I think we all can agree that the UK is liberal, if not socialist. But even in the UK, a London High Court judge ruled that schools can only show the Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth if they provide the opposing view. According to the judge, there are nine significant errors that place the film in the category of indoctrination, not education, unless the teacher guidance notes are changed to put the film into context.

Yet, in Olentangy, taxpayers are paying to English literature students watch the film without such guidance. Is it happenstance that the NEA supports Gore's nonsense, and then the film ends up being shown to district students.

Education or indoctrination. You be the judge, the London High Court already voiced its opinion.
