Exactly. One of the many subtle examples.<quoted text>
Recall last year the brouhaha caused by Leftist teachers who refused to use Red markers when grading student papers because Red was to harsh a color and hurt the student's feelings and self-image.
This sort of Airhead Liberalism pervades ALL of academia today.
However, teachers can no longer give a student an encouraging pat on the back or an understanding hug because it is considered politically incorrect and "inappropriate touching". Yet, teachers having sex with their students has become an epidemic.
A student can assault a teacher verbally or physically with little or no consequence. Yet, teachers are expected to know how to deal with this without crossing any politically correct lines and with little, if any, support from administrators and parents.
It's to the point where public schools are almost like a madhouse - run by out of control students and disgruntled parents with the politically correct police waiting to pounce on any teacher who dares use common sense in maintaining a disciplined and learning-conducive teaching environment.
If it happens just once in one school, it's happened too much.
But in some schools, especially inner city schools, this is more the norm rather than the exception.
