Teaching The Pre Schoolers Socialism

Originally from Drudge

L'Eggo My Lego

Some Seattle school children are being told to be skeptical of private property rights. This lesson is being taught by banning Legos.


A ban was initiated at the Hilltop Children's Center in Seattle. According to an article in the winter 2006-07 issue of "Rethinking Schools" magazine, the teachers at the private school wanted their students to learn that private property ownership is evil.


According to the article, the students had been building an elaborate "Legotown," but it was accidentally demolished. The teachers decided its destruction was an opportunity to explore "the inequities of private ownership." According to the teachers, "Our intention was to promote a contrasting set of values: collectivity, collaboration, resource-sharing, and full democratic participation."


The children were allegedly incorporating into Legotown "their assumptions about ownership and the social power it conveys." These assumptions "mirrored those of a class-based, capitalist society -- a society that we teachers believe to be unjust and oppressive."


They claimed as their role shaping the children's "social and political understandings of ownership and economic equity ... from a perspective of social justice."

...
At the end of that time, Legos returned to the classroom after the children agreed to several guiding principles framed by the teachers, including that "All structures are public structures" and "All structures will be standard sizes." The teachers quote the children:


"A house is good because it is a community house."


"We should have equal houses. They should be standard sizes."

"It's important to have the same amount of power as other people over your building."

Only in Seattle.

Your statement "only in Seattle" is not true. These socialist platitudes are part of the package sold by the Communist Party around the world.
