How comfortable am I? When it comes to our schools, not very. Our public education system is in crisis. Teaching positions go unfilled. Funding is down. Districts are failing to teach our children there are consequences to their actions — or inactions — by not grading homework. Hard work is no longer rewarded because it might make someone else feel bad about themselves. If that isn’t bad enough, you don’t have to look hard to find examples on an almost daily basis of how our schools are trying to indoctrinate our children. The “How Comfortable Am I” questionnaire is a prime example.
Last year, a Florida middle school teacher lost her job after having her students answer the “How Comfortable Am I?” questionnaire. But that wasn’t the end of it. Last week, the questionnaire reared its ugly head again, this time in the Birdville (TX) ISD.
