How open should public school teachers be about their political beliefs?

My district will write a teacher up for making their political beliefs known.If a teacher wants to avoid parent and/ or administration problems- the teacher should remain neutral.

Carefully.That's sort of the best summary I can give.Generally speaking, we should try to keep politics out of the classroom.But we also don't need to go so far as to pretend politics don't exist either.Part of education, arguably, is training students to be good future citizens; not just

What if all the socialist and communist countries that survived after the Cold War just decided to become entirely capitalist shortly after the war? What would the world be like if it happens?

So that is sort of what happened in most places. Aside from the former SSRs in Asia, primarily Belarus and the central Asian former SSRs, all of Eastern Europe rapidly established democratic regimes and began shifting towards a market-based economy and ridding themselves of totalitarian instutitions.I'm not a

First, realize that politicians promises will not happen exactly as they say, because the process for creating laws requires compromise. I don't vote based on campaign promises but on philosophy of government. I believe in small government and therefore choose candidates

If no climate change action is done by 2030, and all of the climate change effects cannot be reversed, will politicians still fight for renewable energy after it will become pointless?

Climate change action is taking place, though countries like China and the US, the world's largest emitters of greenhouse gases, aren't doing enough to combat climate change. Other countries are doing more in spearheading the campaign against climate change.So what type

Why does the developed world keep developing and the underdeveloped world continue being underdeveloped?

The developed world has a near monopoly on the systems and resources needed to develop faster, education systems, financial systems, manufacturing, transportation. Think of it like this, its easier to get to $2,000,000 in net worth if you are starting with $1,000,000 than it is to get to $1,000,000 if you are

What do politicians think about people who hate politics?

It depends.I imagine Hillary Clinton was terrified of the masses who detested politics and politicians in the run up to the 2016 election. Though it was played off as if she were guaranteed to win I do think that the Democrat high command were indeed fearful of the masses that had been awoken.Then on the

Why are we voting people to write and vote laws instead of writing and voting laws ourselves?

A direct democracy with an uneducated population is a recipe for disaster. Most people can't name their state capital much less have any knowledge about local, state, or national issues. And the really sad thing is that they seem proud of their ignorance. At least with a representative

Should uneducated people be allowed to vote?

The amount of money that countries spend on space exploration is actually not that much in relative terms. I will use the U.S. as an example because they spend the most. NASA receives about 0.5% of the whole federal budget. Another way to think about this, is that

Does it make sense to be a Democrat on a state level but Republican on a federal level?

No. The national Republicans want to dismantle the US government and replace our Democratic Republic with an anarcho-capitalist hereditary oligarchy.

I think it MIGHT make sense, in some very limited circumstances, to be a Republican at the local level and

Ill put this a little differently. Should people with mental disabilities be allowed to vote?I once taught in a small, private, center that cared for people with mental disabilities.

Where should I make my own country?

If you have the slightest sense (a proposition that is not supported by the question; but hey, it's been done), you'll not try to establish it on land presently claimed by an existing nation.  Check the Wikipedia article on Terra nullius for a few ideas.

Do you think all political issues should be put up to the people as a whole, instead of a select few people voting in Congress? Why or why not?

What makes politicians bad people?

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.I'd say its human nature, for the vast majority of humanity aren't saints either, but are simply denied the opportunity. Very few of us may accept a hundred/thousand bucks as a bribe, but how many will turn down a million (in reality)?
