There are so many political issues heating up these days. Be it the Supreme Court ruling on Gay marriage, the Confederate flag or the policy minority community, all are the latest political topics for discussion. Politics can be discussed among students, but not at school level. A teacher must check that there are no political discussions going on in the class. School students have gentle mindsets that can be disturbed due to the harsh truth that is hidden behind every political issue. There is a way to discuss every topic and the teacher must follow all the norms.
Avoid giving your own opinion as it can make the students biased. Listen to what they know and correct them wherever necessary. Try to keep the topic of discussion not too political. It can be on smoking issues or something like that. A topic that is not too political will charge a student’s mind with discussion. Strong political view difference can impact a student’s mind negatively also. Depending on the age group of the student the discussion can be limited by the teachers attending them. Hence, it is best to keep the discussion limited and easy going. Politics inside the classroom definitely needs some restrictions.
