Another reason to #homeschool: Public School Made My Kid Imagine Herself Dying in the Twin Towers on 9/11

“A language arts teacher at Fairview Junior High in Alvin, Texas asked students to pretend they were trapped in one of the towers or planes, then asking who they would write a letter to if they knew they were going to die.”

Parents were understandably outraged.

Then my daughter came home from her Austin, Texas high school to tell me that she too had an assignment in her drama class where she had to imagine herself in the twin towers on 9/11 just before the planes hit.

She was told to write about what she would miss most (you know, because she was dead) and what she would regret she never got to do (again, because terrorists killed her by slamming a jet into the building she was in).

Sadly enough, when I see these things anymore I’m not shocked.  The fact that these things are being taught in the schools is bad enough.  But to think that these are adult teachers with no discernment what so ever as to what is appropriate for the children they are teaching is even more disturbing.  How many adults did this lesson plan go through before it got to the teacher?  To think that no one put the brakes on it before it got to the students is difficult to understand.

I do not have a problem with discussing with 12 and 13 year olds what happened on September 11.  What is the point in asking them to imagine themselves dying in the Twin Towers?  That is not a history lesson.  Twelve and 13 year olds should not have to imagine themselves dying–that is a subject for adults, not children.  As far as death and the afterlife, that is a theological discussion for children to have at home with their parents.  Government schools are trying to take over the role as parents, and unfortunately, many of the parents don’t even see it happening.

  1. In my opinion it is a form of strategized mind control and I believe it starts from the school board down to the teachers, where then they carry these situations out. I am so very happy my daughter took control of a controllable situation and is now home-schooling my grand Sun with great results. Did you read where in NC. they have the African American children re-enacting as slaves, calling them the N word and other derogatory names? Our country is going Berserk.

    1. I did hear about re-enacting the slavery and was hoping to post on it sometime this week.

      As far as the mind control, I agree, but I think it starts a lot higher up than the school board.

  2. As a very interested Canadian I must say that it seems to me that there is a very distinct possibility that there is a systematic approach to shaping the minds of young children in North america. “Terrorism” has become more and more a sort of product that is being sold into the minds of people. It is interesting that they didn’t ask them to write a report on possible explanations as to why the third tower (tower 7) fell. They are ( In my opinion) creating a climate of fear and submission in the hearts of the next generation to make (good citizens).

    In Sweden it is now illegal to home school.

  3. Thank you for writing this article. You were correct in saying that the government is trying to take the roll of parents. I hope more people will read this article and take something valuable from it!
