    Does anyone else find , that lll their teachers support labour and support left wing causes. I.e our economics teacher is biased, teaching us out about inequality of wealth and saying that capitalism is bad etc. even when its obvious that all the countries that have gone into hyperinflation have been led by socialists ( Zimbabwe , Venezuela) Gordon brown sold gold at all time low. The left have lost TWO elections , the EU referendum and the GE. Yet our socialist teachers wont stop with their socialist propaganda. In English we have to learn inspector calls ( Written by JB priestly , A SOCIALIST) . Why is there so much bias?? I dont see any capitalist propaganda to give kids a balanced view. On top this POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is another a big issue, they tell us by default that gay marriage is right etc. and you CANT speak out against it because of the bias. Its high time we give our kids two sides of the argument. What do you guys think?

    I'm all in favour of teachers dropping the socialism stuff in favour of spending more time teaching the basic rules of grammar and syntax.

    After 6 years of being constantly undermined by a tory government making ideological and indefensible attacks on the education system, would anyone really expect a teacher to be a tory?

    No but you can expect them to be politically neutral in the classroom.

    Unless they're a politics teacher not really, since their views don't affect their capability to do their job.

    Especially with people wanting 16 year olds to get the vote, it gives certain parties large advatages if teachers are allowed to openly encourage students how to vote. The majority of students trust there teachers and may not pick up bias in how they are talking and blindly follow there teachers vote

    Teaching 'anti-gay marriage' isn't showing another side, it's discrimination and is motivated by the desire to deprive minorities of equal rights. Same as how racist and sexist views shouldn't be taught purely to 'show the other side.' Homophobia has no place in schools or anywhere

    No.
    Also, you're saying that capitalism is better than socialism because it's still here? Survivorship bias.

    My teacher is a left-wing Irish republican, and he hides his views very well. Teaching about politics (ideologies), he appears completely neutral. Another teacher I know refuses to say what his views are.

    The anti-EU stance is actually common to hard-left and hard-right ideologies.

    Also, the GE is seriously questionable considering that only 24.4% of the electorate actually voted Tory. Also considering Wales and Scotland are dominated by leftist parties.

    Also teachers tend to be left-wing because they deeply understand the education system and how the Tories love to **** it up all the time.

    Our school economics teacher supported UKIP, the course is outline to highlight the flaws of capitalism not praise socialism, we're told government control can be extremely inefficient I think it's fairly balanced, most teachers are centrists in my opinion

    Blair was a "neo-liberal" centrist, not even a traditional social democrat let alone a left-wing socialist. If ur teacher thinks hes gr8, ur teacher is a centrist, not a socialist.

    The definition of "socialism" isn't being more left wing than Thatcher...
