Back in my hometown I learn from my local News-Press that for a sleepy town Santa Barbara remains on the cutting edge. Where elsewhere you read about conservative college students complaining about the liberal bias of their professors, here the conservative griping begins in high school.

“I am a conservative student attending Santa Barbara High School,” Tyler McManigal writes in a letter to the editor of the Santa Barbara News-Press, “and it is no secret to me or any other students that the greater majority of teachers are liberal.

“Conservative students always find themselves having to defend their political views in the classroom because they are challenged by these liberal teachers, who give their one-sided political views and anti-Bush statements.”

Because conservative students, who “may be the minority view in high school,” are forever having to defend their political views, there is fortunately a golden lining, young Tyler writes:

“[B]ecause we have to constantly defend our political views, conservative students are forced to be more aware of and familiar with current events.

“Thus, the liberal environment of the classroom we learn in helps to secure our conservative views and only further makes this minority of students the more educated on the latest current events. Liberal teachers are only doing us a favor, so I say, thank you.”
