The Galvez Middle School Political Survey Imbroglio


They’re having a relatively large-scale fight down in Ascension Parish this week thanks to a lefty political survey a teacher at Galvez Middle School gave to seventh-graders.

WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge has the story…

Their social studies teacher prefaced a lesson on political parties with a survey that asked: Are you a Republican or Democrat.

“In my opinion the answers were highly skewed in order to promote one party over another,” said Terry Stehlik, who’s child was given the survey.

Ascension Parish Schools quickly sent a letter to parents to let them know the teacher made a mistake by using the “teaching tool,” and assured them it wouldn’t happen again.

“We don’t want teachers to teach partisan views to students, we want teachers to approach political views in a balanced way, so that we make sure that we’re not being critical of any political party or any political group,” said Steve Westbrook, Assistant Superintendent of Ascension Parish Schools.

You can see the survey here, but a few highlights will give a taste of what the Galvez Middle kids were subjected to.

And on, and on.

At least part of the survey came from this.

At some point, virtually everyone has had to put up with a left-wing teacher such as the one at Galvez Middle who attempted to indoctrinate those kids into a left-wing political philosophy. Usually, there’s at least one kid in the class who resists, and is made an example of. Many of the rest of the kids then go along with the indoctrination because, after all, it’s less trouble than trying to argue with the authority figure in whose hands your GPA rests.

And people wonder why Democrats do so well with voters under 30. It takes that long for life experience to trump the crap kids are taught in classes like the 7th-grade social studies class at Galvez Middle, paid for by taxpayer dollars.

    Scott – try and get the name of the teacher that did this. Many principals actually have a lot of discretion when hiring. If this person’s name is out there on Google, he or she might have to get a job outside of indoctrinating youth in Louisiana on public funding.

  2. Yes.  Find out the name of the teacher.  He/she is paid by our tax dollars and is a public employee

    Teacher’s Unions using OUR tax dollars to promote the democrat party….because….. 
    1. Because democrats are not concerned about millions of babies being
    slaughtered so long as we keep all death row inmates alive. 2.  Because democrats believe the government will spend our the money we earn better than we would.3.  Democrats believe Freedom of Speech
    is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.4.  Democrats believe
    I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all
    I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.5.  Because democrats
    believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can
    tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start
    driving a Prius.6.  Democrats believe oil companies’
    profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same
    gallon of gas at 15% isn’t….?7.  Democrats think illegal
    aliens have a right to free (Taxpayer’s money) health care, education, and Social Security
    benefits.8.  Democrats believe that business should not
    be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the
    rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see
    fit.9.  Because democrats believe liberal judges need to
    rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would
    never get their agendas past the voters.10. Democrats think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but
    not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle or
    gopher.11. Democrats believe while we live in the greatest, most
    wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE”.12. And because Democrats will NEVER accept another point of view.

    Is there any surprise that in public schools,from grade school through community colleges as well as in our state universities, liberal profs, teachers are hell-bent to propagandize and brainwash students to dis our American heritage,history and values???? Not to me as I taught for nearly 48 yrs in 5-6th, 9-12th and the local community college. As one of the rare conservs there, I was always challenging the schools and the teachers to teach facts not emotions or ideologies that hurt America. It goes on and if parents knew how much college would cost as their pupil got to HS, found it was nearly 30-40 thous a yr, to be brainwashed, they would be sending their kids to Hillsboro U. Yikes.

    Ascension Parish schools stand above many but make mistakes. I find most teachers are far left.  The democratic party often go to schools to hustle new members (because adults know better).  Nearly 8 years ago, the Ascension Parish Shools Board brought up two taxes in the middle of the summer when the teachers had all the time in the world to voter for their raises.  As a republican leader, I called many to vote ahead although we were likely to loose the battle.  After a few voted, a businessman call and asked what would the ARPEC need to defeat these new taxes.  I asked and they gave.  The ARPEC got the word out and the Registar of Voters said the the voters were not smiling when they came in as they were before the word got out.  We already spend above the state average per child.  The administration wants more.  If they can’t balance the budget, do like Corporate America and hire a better administration.

    Great coverage, Scott.

    Your sample questions arent the most controversial on the survey. The last two questions ask about abortion and same sex marriage.

    There is no mention of the action taken on the teacher by the school board. I urge Ascension parish residents to attend the next school board meeting. It is on OCtober 4th @ 6:30 in APSB office in Donaldsonville.

    “teaching tool” is that what they are calling it, to TRY to minimize what this teacher did. Obviously Steve Westbrook thinks that the parents of these students are STUPID. Looks like the schoolboard believes in the 11th commandment, COVER THY OWN ASS.
