World Politics = High School

When I saw an article with that as the the theme, I just had to read it.

The closing was pretty good.

Being a high school teacher, I get to view alot of the cliquism up close and far more personally than I want. I always thought it would be interesting to stage "Midsummer Night's Dream" with the fairies and elves played by cheerleaders and football players and the townsfolk played by "average" kids. So when will the book "Everything I Learned About Diplomacy I Learned in the High School Cafeteria" come out?

Let's start writing it now, one comment at a time--actually, let me get some sleep first....

I have always said that school was a microcosm of the world.

One can look at any school, view the different groups and students, and match them up with countries and various world organizations.

School can certainly teach one about the world. Now don't take that as meaning we should handle everything in the world as we do in schools.

School, I feel in the most part, are too liberal and take the liberal position on most issues.

27+ years in the classroom has shown me that.
