Pass a new amendment to the US Constitution to eliminate political bias in public schools
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
PLEASE READ: I want to propose a critical petition which I believe would help our society and eliminate much of the unwanted bias in public schools, help our kids and future college graduates attain a more critical way of thinking, and foster an unbiased, neutral and logical environment. Let's put an end to public school political indoctrination that is prevalent across almost all school and college campuses in our country. I propose Amendment number 28 to the United States Constitution. This is what my proposed Amendment 28 would state:
"No public school, nor any of its representatives in official capacity shall advance nor inhibit a certain political view."
In other words, public schools, universities, teachers and professors should no longer in their official capacity as teachers or professors, promote nor ridicule a certain political view. We don't let the government and public schools advance nor demean a certain religion, so why should we let them advance or demean a certain political view or stance? Could politics still be discussed in public schools? Of course! Just like religion courses in schools still discuss Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc. BUT, if religious prayer is not allowed in public schools because it promotes one religion over the other (or the lack thereof), why should one political point of view be allowed to be promoted over another?
Public school personnel should not influence the captive student audience.
The First Amendment of our US Constitution reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
This petition and proposed new amendment would draw parallels from the first section of the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion". In Constitutional law, that is also known as the Establishment Clause, which interpreted another way basically says that the government shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion. The Lemon Test is used to test the constitutionality of any law, to assess whether it violates the Establishment Clause or not. Under that test, for any law passed in this country to be valid, 1) there must be a secular purpose for the law, 2) the effect of the law must neither advance nor inhibit religion, and 3) there must not be extensive entanglement with religion. Just as a law cannot advance nor inhibit religion, I propose that a new amendment should be passed which would forbid public schools from advancing OR inhibiting a certain political view.
If this is something you feel should be passed and become law in our country, sign your name in the comments section and share this this post. If we get enough signatures, we will send the petition to Congress and the White House.
