There was uproar at the Upper St Clair high school in a prosperous suburb of Pittsburgh last month when board members governing the local school district voted 5-4 at a heated meeting to throw out the IB.In the interests of balanced editorial, I would like to point out there are morons on both sides of the debate.
Since the vote, one of the board members who opposes the IB and calls its internationalist, pro-egalitarian ideals "Marxist" has received death threats.So the IB, has avid supporters of its ideals who are prepared to kill for them. That's some course.
The ACLU is joining with parents to sue the school. Interestingly the federal government,from PotUS down, is all in favour of the IB.
Is local politics like this the world over?
