How about teaching our children to be individuals and that all of our opinions are not automatically pigeonholed into just Democrats and Republicans?  You can talk about these subjects without putting into context of just the 2 oligarchal parties.  Again, this is just further indoctrination into an inevitable 2 party only system, it is quite nefarious and a great contributor to the mindset of what is wrong with out countries political situation.
Edit:  This highlighted response also indicates just how indoctrinated we are when most people are upset because it favors one or the other.  To be upset for that reason is to totally miss the point and just further proves my point. {#Yes}

Interesting commentary on that FB page, though that "quiz" has nothing to do with Common Core.  I guess that FB group opposes C.C. for fear of losing their ranking as the state with the worst overall educational performance in the country.

 

And like I said those partisans are upset for the completely wrong reasons.

I think that largely depends on your own views (I'd pick Ds), but I can easily see a different ideological mindset agree with all of the opposites. Yet another mindset (a third way) would likely pick some Ds and Rs (as in "fiscally conservative but socially liberal").

 

What is funny is that I would pick D for virtually every topic except for gun control, but I also realize that in practical governing there is very little difference in the actions between the 2 parties once elected.   Not to mention so many important valence issues that are completely bipartsian are not even addressed.

So, anyway, how would you broach this subject with 6th graders? Not at all, like some people want with sex-ed? Or should the classroom give equal time to Whigs and Anti-Masons?
