A fascinating article in the Washington Times investigates a risky teaching tactic employed in high schools and colleges across the country.
Educators are inviting representatives of hate groups – neo Nazis, KKK, Westboro Baptist Church, etc. – to share their hateful ideologies with students.
School officials say the point of such activities is for students to witness first hand the extreme stances these groups take, and to avoid them.
They assert that no student has ever been converted as a result of these speaking engagements.
