What is the role of education?

I was taught that the role of education was teach, not indoctrinate of push the instructors personal agenda.

However, that has not been the case in many schools where numerous teachers have verbally attacked and humiliated students who have different political and/or religious views.

It happens a lot during a presidential election season and it happens all levels of education.

In the latest example, a female graduate assistant at the University of Utah has been reassigned after going on an anti-gun rant and insisting that any student legally carrying a concealed weapon stand in a taped off 3×3 square in the back of the classroom, referred to as the 2nd Amendment Zone.  

(Fox News) – A graduate teaching assistant has been criticized after trying to alienate and target students who conceal carry weapons in her classroom, labelling them as “absurd, antisocial, and frightening” and forcing them to stand in a “3X3 taped square.”

“If you feel that it is somehow at all appropriate to bring a gun to class (hint: it is not…),” the controversial University of Utah teacher wrote in a section of her syllabus, then the students would be forced to stand in a “Second Amendment zone.”

While the public school instructor acknowledged the students’ right to bear arms, she claimed she has the “right to restrict elements of the Second Amendment in my own classroom” like a “free speech zone.” The assistant said those students would be forced to stand in a “3×3 taped square on the floor in the very back of the classroom…This zone does not include a desk because desks are reserved for students who respect the personal and psychological safety of their classmates and instructor.” …

Utah legislators had passed a law lowering the age for concealed carry permits to 18, so that young women would be able to defend themselves against would be attackers.

State Rep. Karianne Lisonbee, a Republican who voted for the law, informed the university when she heard what the graduate assistant was doing.

Lisonbee also posted a photo of the 3×3 2nd Amendment square with an explanation about what the weapons policy is.

It wasn’t that long ago that some Utah college campuses also had free speech zones, but Lisonbee helped pass a bill to make those illegal.

Once the university was notified by Lisonbee and others, they immediately reprimanded and re-assigned the graduate assistant and informed her of campus policy and state laws.
