Parents: Teacher silenced son on hunting
Saying their son was "silenced" by his teacher for talking about hunting in the classroom, the parents of a fourth-grade student at North Bennington Graded School took their son out of school and have taken their case to the local school board.
This teacher need to do a little learning
It sounds to my like this teacher need to do a little learning.
A field trip would be needed, take her out to a small area with an over population of deer or other wild animal. Let her see the problem first hand. We had a problem like this in a nearby wild life preserve, when an over population of deer occurs the deer eat everything, they came close to wiping out all vegetation in the preserve. The only thing that stopped this was a controlled hunt. I know it sounds cruel to shoot these deer that were almost pets, yes pets they were so tame that you could get within 5ft of most of them. Some would even let you pet them if you had some food in hand. But most of them were showing signs of starvation, very thin bones showing type of stuff. I’m sure it was more humane to shoot the deer, than to let them starve to death. If there was no hunters over population would occur very fast, because there are no, or very few natural predators (like in the wild life preserve) it wouldn’t be long the wild life would be feeding on our food source. Like corn, soybeans, ect. lowering the farmers yields thus raising prices on all food stuff. So hunting is a necessary part of the checks and balances that keeps the wild life from affecting the economy. It says a lot about the schools when a 10yr old student has a better grasp of what is nessary, than the teacher over him. IMO:geezer:
