They Teach Our Children | Beaufort County Now | Should not our teachers be educated?

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Several years ago I went to a meeting where the Navigator on the Enola Gay was the featured speaker.

His name was Theodore Van Kirk.

On July 28, 2014 he died at the age of 93.

He said during his address to us that he has made many presentations over the years to schools.

One time he was introduced by a Faculty Member at a high school who told the assembly that he was a veteran of World War 2.

Of course, that is normally written WWII. 

She introduced him as a veteran of, "World War Eleven".

These "teachers" are teaching our children. sad

Would I kid u?

Alex, I heartily agree. Each succeeding generation appears to be just a wee bit less aware of what is real and more knowledgeable of what is popular.

As long as there continues to be Social Justice Warriors, there will continue to a higher level of less talented educators, and far more political organizers.
