The free exchange of ideas

…. so long as we approve. (h/t to SayUncle).

…but that the school was unwilling to allow any pro gun rights speaker to come speak to her class, out of concern for how the parents would react.

Did you ever think parents might react negatively to presenting lop-sided arguments? to providing anything less than an actual education to their children? This of course assumes the parents spending their money to send the children to this school care about such things.

One promising thing is the exchange with the teacher… the teacher seems to understand the value of things, and it sounds like the students might actually be thinking — more than can be said for the school administrators. Hopefully the kids will learn a little extra from the whole experience… a “teachable moment” if you will.
