What’s Your Political Views Mr. Teacher?

By: Madison Raley


I’ve been in school for 13 years (kindergarten included) and while I’ve had many different teachers at many different schools I’ve only had one teacher tell me their political views; however, some teachers make it obvious. It’s a well known fact that most teachers and administrators are liberal. Supposedly that party stands for ‘education’, but all I see and hear is “indoctrination of propaganda.” When you ask teachers about their political views they either clam up or say, “I’m sorry but I can't answer that.” There’s really not a clear explanation on why, we just take it and leave it and don’t challenge it due to their authority.

What I don’t understand is if you’re a supporter of the Second Amendment, a supporter of life, wear a MAGA hat and shop at Wal-Mart like me you are labeled conservative and you are proud of it, why can’t you do the same but be a teacher, read the Washington Compost like a Bible, Watch Counterfeit News Network religiously and be a liberal and stand by it and not hide it on school campuses. Pick a side, stick to it, and don’t hide it just because of your profession because 9 times out of 10 students and other adults already know.
