The Bush-Hitler Chapter in 10th Grade Geography
From Denver’s Channel 9, on 10th grader Sean Allen, who frequently recorded his teachers to back up his notes. Allen recorded Jay Bennish, his 10th grade World Geography teacher:
“I’m not saying Bush and Hitler are exactly the same, obviously they’re not. OK? But there are some eerie similarities to the tones that they use,” says Bennish in his critique of U.S. economic and foreign policy.
Towards the end of the class, Bennish goes on to say, “I’m not in anyway implying that you should agree with me, I don’t even know if I’m necessarily taking a position. But what I’m trying to get you to do is to think about these issues more in depth and not to just take thinks from the surface.”
I’d like to hear the whole tape. If you know young Mr. Allen, have him e-mail me. Mr.Bennish is invited to join the program as well.
