Yet another reason to homeschool

A high school teacher in upstate New York has apparently decided to tell students to imagine he was a Nazi official, and write to persuade him (?) that they are loyal to the same by writing an essay demonstrating the "evil" of Jews from Nazi propaganda.

Now thankfully, a full third of the students had more sense than the average Florida Atlantic University student, and refused, but it says something when a teacher in New York of all places thinks that this kind of thing is appropriate.  Isn't the "values clarification" and "diversity" classwork in most schools of education supposed to prevent this kind of thing?

Or, when we think about it, might we wonder if it's supposed to cause these kinds of things?  I'm leaning more and more to the latter.
