    Very sad that they don't know what it is. It should be a mandatory part of a teens education just like U.S. History.

    Ask a teen what the word means and you might get an explanation that it's a disease or illness.

    These same kids are protected from ART . Art is bad like Porn. Many Prestigious artistic paints from last century had to be removed from their books , because Art shocked their "smart" parents that look like Al qaeda in america.

    With the advent of no child left behind and the focus on standardized testing, students will only be taught what they will be tested on.

    Yeah, as though any of you know what an EMO is.

    The kids will come around when they have jobs and mortgages. Just like always.

    People becoming U.S. citizens know more about the country than most natural born citizens ... sad but true.

    Every once in awhile NEM is brilliant. :singing:

    Drugs, Sex, and Bush Hating, if you have to know anything about these subjects and if you are a teacher, you have sitting before you a room full of experts.

    I admire teachers, please don't teach them about how wonderfull all of America's enemy's are or who to bring home to dinner, what they really need to know to get though life is How To Read, How To Write and How Much Two & Two Is, then teach them "Nems List".

    So high school students shouldn't learn american history or the atrocities that are committed in the world? Maybe that's why many of them have no appreciation for what they have and waste a ton of food and consume way too much.

    Just feeling you out, I understand, I hope you don't just focus on "American Atrocities" I was curious, I have a big family and when I talk to some of the young people in my family and about school and the subjects they discuss in the school room it gets me so mad I have to sit out in the snow, Especially on how bad America is and was or how Mr Jones SUV is going to make them all Sterile.

    I don't call it "teaching" I call it "brainwashing", bad America, bad Jesus, bad White Man, bad Policeman, bad BUSH, bad Republican, bad President Truman, etc, etc.

    If I had it all to do over and was capable and had the means, I would "Home School"

    I speak specifically in atrocoties around the world specifically in Darfur. My concern is that many people think that genocide ended when the Holocaust did. Meanwhile there has been Rowanda, Cambodia, parts of Europe, etc. Not to mention the denial ofo the Armenian genocide.

    I have low expectations. I think they should at least know what the word is as it's one of the most important topics in life IMO.

    I Hope they also know that Russia, France, Germany, Spain, China, Cuba and the United Nations should be working on this situation.

    I agree they should know about all of the bloodthirsty things that go on in the world, because the world is a very small place today and many savages inhabit todays world, Saddam was one of them, I hope todays school children learn of how Saddam & his Demented sons treated human beings and if all the horror shows of the past are shown and taught I hope the schools will mention 9/11 and maybe show the students the TV pictures of the Muslim Executioner carving off a screaming gugling human beings head on TV for the world to watch.

    I commend you if you are a fair Teacher and show and tell your students "Both Sides Of The Coin"
