Students at an elementary school in New Rochelle, New York were assigned to color in drawings of Barack Obama to mark his inauguration, writes Robert Cox of Talk of the Sound.
The drawings depicted Obama in various heroic poses, flags waving in the background, but one drawing went beyond adulation into overt political activity disguised as a pedagogical exercise. The drawing is a campaign button, in the center of a circle Barack Obama is smiling surrounded by another circle with the words “Students for Obama 2008.”
It’s not just inappropriate. The crayola curriculum is a waste of students’ time.
