Bernard Chapin says: “The political correctness that infects our colleges and universities has been well documented over the years. However, a lesser studied phenomenon is the amount of PC that is present within our primary and secondary schools. I noticed its presence during the time I interned at a major suburban district. The specter of Stalinist PC ended up having quite a bit to do with my future vocational decisions. Now I work at an alternative school, and when people ask me why I do, I answer by saying: “There is no such thing as political correctness at an alternative school. Life is real there and reality can’t be covered up with lies and euphemisms. That’s why I’ll never leave.”
