CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Teacher Tells Students “There Are Lots of Similarities Between Trump and Hitler”
The Channel 4 documentary ‘Educating Greater Manchester’ has caught a secondary school teacher on camera teaching a class that there are ‘a lot of similarities between Hitler and Trump’.
There have been many reports of similar cases of indoctrination to this one, but they are seldom caught on camera so that teachers can get away with it. You can see the clip from the documentary below:
She says “Just because someone’s an immigrant, I don’t get why people have got like a negative slant on it”, before continuing to assert that “There are a lot of similarities between Hitler and Trump, yeah”. She goes on to point out her view that Trump has worse hair than the former German dictator.
The teacher at Harrop Fold school in Salford, who is not named in the documentary, is clearly breaking the Education Act, which states that teachers must ensure that political and partisan issues ‘are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views’
It is concerning that children are being taught by teachers who can’t recognise that Hiter and Trump are two very different politicians and that teachers’ personal views are not being kept to themselves (not to mention the misuse of the word ‘like’).
