OPINION|Thomas: School Supplies Confiscated, Redistributed [Poll]

Subscribe to WBSM-AM/AM 1420 on

It started when my guest Dr. Duke Pesta related that kids are taught socialism in our schools, specifically government schools. I asked Dr. Duke how so. He told me it starts when kids are in the younger grades. Say you buy supplies for your child: pencils, notebooks, yummy library paste, crayons, scissors, etc. Your child brings these supplies into school. What happens next may startle you.

According to Dr. Duke, the teacher confiscates these supplies and later hands them out evenly to all the students. That caring is sharing moment is acknowledging that socialism is alive and well in the classroom. I wonder if parents realize the portion of their paycheck they used to ensure their child(ren) have all the goodies for a great classroom experience are equally shared by all the students. What happens to the student or parent that doesn’t comply?
