(David Menzies guest hosts for Ezra Levant...) A recent Toronto Star article pondered what teachers in the school system should say to their pupils about terrorism:
“With high-profile attacks dominating social media and news coverage around the world, Canada’s elementary and high school teachers increasingly find themselves addressing students’ questions, fears and stereotypes about terrorism and violence.”
“Stereotype”? That sounds like code for not actually talking about the types of people who are predominately carrying out these atrocities.
An executive with the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation told the Star that government, school boards and teachers’ unions should train teachers how to have these discussions in the classroom.
I’ve got a better idea:
