I don't like it. I have nothing against schools learning about their President, being taught to respect him/her/the office, etc., but I have two issues with this. First, it's way too fan-boyish. Second, I doubt very much that it's non-partisan. Specifically, I doubt the same teachers teach a similar song for Republican presidents, just as we've seen "non-partisan, non-political" groups that gushed over Bush be critical or silent with Obama.
When I was in 5th grade we had a mock election that included a month of campaigning. I played the part of Jimmy Carter... two other students were Reagan and Anderson. We had to learn about our candidates positions and personal history... all the other students had to do the same for when we had a "debate" students were to ask us questions about policy and issues as we stood behind podiums... when the students failed to ask questions the teachers asked us some. On the actual election day that November students grades 1-5 voted in this mock election. Reagan won the real election. Carter (played by me) won our mock election... probably because I was better looking than the other two kids... One funny thing was when I handed out peanuts at recess (Jimmy, being the peanut farmer) I was COPIED by the other students who in turn gave out CANDY. I was pissed and thought that candy would beat peanuts... but alas the forces of evil were defeated. Too bad it was not he case in the real election.
Based on reading the words of the song, that's freaking spooky. I really hope that it's a spoof, and, if not, I hope whoever put that together is made to see the light and suffers some consequences pronto.
The closest I ever had to a political experience in education was with my high school history teacher. It was an A.P. American history class, and the teacher had been a soldier in WWII. He was willing to talk about his experiences and the impact that had on his worldview, and he made it quite plain that he was politically conservative.
He also made it clear that he valued critical thinking and solid research above all and was warmly approving of me personally and of my work, including my (quite left-wing) class project on nuclear disarmament.
As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...
Now that is seriously nuts :/ Personality cults, particularly racially based personality cults are freaky.
