Try to imagine a high school tasking its students with making a logical argument to support the proposition that black people are evil. If you find that thought experiment too perverse even to imagine, substitute Jews for blacks, and theres no need to use your imagination at all. It really happened, at a school in upstate New York.
The Epoch Times reports that Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard of the Albany School District apologized Friday for a writing assignment that asked students to argue Jews are evil while making a persuasive argument blaming them for the problems of Nazi Germany.
Wyngaard said the essay was part of a series of exercises intended to help students hone their persuasive writing skills. The assignment, first reported by the Albany Times Union, asked students to research Nazi propaganda, then assume their teacher was a Nazi government official whom they had to convince of their loyalty by arguing persuasively that Jews are evil.

THEY GOT CAUGHT.
We’re sorry we got caught.
Absolutely disgusting disgusting. Why can’t they teach these kids right? Everyone knows it’s liberals who are evil.
This will be good practice if the marxists complete their takeover of this country and students have to convince government official of their loyalty by arguing persuasively that conservative Americans are evil.
>> They need to be fired.
As in oven?
Government schools are child abuse.
An enterprising young Christian student might have written a very thoughtful paper on “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”, and proven that Jews are quite evil in the sight of an all holy God. And then showed, according to God, that “None are righteous, no not one”, showing that the gentiles are just as bad.
I am sure that that teachers head would have exploded right there in front of the classroom.
It would have been a very worthy “F”.
Why would anyone doubt it. Her role models did that and worse.
The teacher should be asked to research the outcome of the Nuremberg Trials, then assume the School Board is the Allied Military Tribunal...
This is the left’s plan to divide and conquer. We have far to many asphalt engineer’s in America. They sit on their ass and criticize this nation plus all who are for something good. They are for all that is evil from man laying with man ,to abortion, to spending our way out of debt. Since when did we hand Obama our nation’s checkbook without any controls?
There are offenses so over-the-top that an apology is not only woefully inadequate, but actually adds to the insult by demonstrating that the offender is either insincere, or is completely clueless of the gravity of the situation. In this particular case it is no doubt the former.
Good find. Now that we know what she looks like I’m inclined to wonder if she ever considered having the students argue “slavery was justified.”
More proof that the biggest anti-Semites in this country reside in the Democratic Party.
I just heard on ABC radio news that a teacher is being reprimanded for having her students write “I want to die in a fire” as punishment for misbehaving in a fire drill. Obviously having your students argue why jews are the problem doesn’t rise to the level required to be reported on nationally syndicated radio news.
Blacks comprise one of the largest groups of anti-semites in the US. It stems from nearly a century of communist propaganda aimed specifically at the black community.
I think they are really close to completing a Marxist takeover, and I think it might take 60 or 70 years to turn it around, similar to the Soviet Union. The constant drumbeat of communist propaganda, has been quite successful, at getting Americans to hate their own freedoms and rights. Look how many people hate free speech, and the 2nd amendment, and conservatives too. I am so cynical of the rats, I believe most of them would love to see conservatives murdered in huge numbers, and they would sleep peacefully. I am battling the desire to hate these slime sucking scum bags, but I am losing that battle.
