I know it's ironic that a teacher would post this.  But there you go.

and lets not forget about the culture of militarism that we live in. Just scan through any of the mainstream media channels on a saturday morning to see how our children, esp. boys, are being primed for war. Television, video games... these are the insidious tools used buy the powers that be to contract the minds of our children and funnel them down the path of mediocrity. Engaging them in creative endeavors is our best line of defense against such a fate. It will expand their horizons and keep their spirits free, thereby allowing them at least the chance of fulfiling their true potential.
Thank you, Sir Robinson, for being bold enough to say so.
