Point out the exaggerations.

Point out the exaggerations.

There are far fewer exaggerations in this video than you may realize. Even the one about Red Ink is actually a thing.

Study: Red ink makes students anxious

Teachers shouldn’t use red coloured pens to mark homework ‘because it’s like shouting and upsets pupils

Privilege Points are a thing.

Feelings over Facts are a thing.

Gender politics is a thing.

Equality of outcome over equality of opportunity is a thing.

Right to not be offended is a thing.

Right to ‘punch a nazi’ is a thing.

Words are violent is a thing.

Right to silence differing opinions is a thing.

And they are all mixed into education. So, if you find an exaggeration in this video, that has not played out in some western educational institution in the last decade, please let me know.

Remember, questions are offensive is a thing….really it is. Especially in regards to wanting to know who is rewriting education. Just ask David Eggen. He’ll tell you why you shouldn’t ask that.
