Creation of the Ohio Un-American Activities in Education Commission
We advocate for the creation of an Ohio Un-American Activities in Education Commission.
Education can affect the development of a child's brain. A negative world-view taught at a young age is likely to lead to unhappiness and an adult that is a detriment to society.
America definitely has its warts, but do we have to use taxpayer dollars to focus on those warts? If parents want their children to learn a negative world-view should taxpayers pay for it? Are there not enough free sources of diverse viewpoint available that parents wanting such an education for their child can provide that without the use of taxpayer dollars? Is the state obligated to teach such diverse viewpoints that could legitimately lead to hatred, subversion, and a child that can never truly adjust to being a civil adult capable of critical thinking? We don't believe the State has an obligation to teach that which is detrimental to society and antithetical to prosperity.
Every Ohio School should strive that every student:
>is strong and positive in their national and cultural identity
>aspires for themselves and their children to achieve more
>has confidence that they have choice and opportunity to be the best they can be
>is an active participant and citizen in creating a strong civil and peaceful society
>is productive, valued, and competitive in the world market
> has a positive spirit for America and Ohio to lead globally
Schools are educational charities and receive non-profit status due to the work they do.
A positive education is a tide that raises all ships. When education becomes detrimental to society it is society's duty to no longer support it.
But, in the name of educational diversity, many educators teach a distorted view of America. We submit to you; there are plenty of places to learn about how bad America is without Ohio taxpayers having to foot the bill. Any college or university or school acting as a non-profit will have their non-profit exemption revoked if their educators are deemed by the commission to teach subject matter detrimental to our society.
Professors do not have the right to have free-speech on campus. They are employees of the State. The State of Ohio has every right to place terms of agreement on their employment. If they want to teach radical and subversive interests they can do that at a private university, school, or in another country.
