Perhaps I can persuade you to think differently.

What were the teachers of the 60s and 70s doing?

Answer: They were **willingly** supporting, upholding, and establishing a socialist-funded, single-payer, godlessly secular, compulsory-use entitlement.

What did children risk learning in these socialist-entitlment schools?

1) The children learned to think and reason godlessly in their secular classes. They had to just to cooperate in their godlessly secular classrooms.

2) The children risked learning that any voting mob powerful enough to give them socialist-funded and single-payer schooling could give them **lots** of “free” stuff and they risked learning to be comfortable with the government threat of force to compel them to use it.

Modern government schooling was an evil idea from the beginning in the mid-1800s. It is built upon a foundation of socialist-funding and compulsion. It has never been more than generically Protestant in its lukewarm religious worldview. By my grandmother's day ( born 1894) government schooling was merely nodding to God on occasion and by the 60s was utterly godless.

**Good** teachers would never cooperate with this evil. They would shun it.

Amen.

I graduated high school in 1977, and I can tell you I had just as many hippy-dippy teachers then as there are now. Back then they were spouting crap about evil corporations polluting our rivers and streams, leading to the first Earth Day in 1970.

We were taught that the Earth couldn't support the coming population explosion, and did exercises that showed that even if we "discovered" another earth, geometric progression would only extend the inevitable for a very short time before we ran out of oil, food, and potable water.

And we were taught how FDR saved our country after the evil capitalist crash of 1929 with his public works programs such as the CCC and WPA.

Yeah, the liberal agenda was always in the public schools, if the details of what was being taught changed.

Precisely where in this broad and non-homogenous country did you and your grandmother attend school?

Methinks that you and the up-down kid paint with far too broad a brush...
