No wonder teachers hesitate to ‘get real’ when they might end up with their head chopped off.

A history teacher, who is said to have discussed images of the Prophet Muhammad with his pupils during a moral and civic education class, was beheaded in Paris at the end of last week. Seems a little extreme to say the least, yet it happened.

When did it become unsafe for teachers to open up healthy and much-needed discussions around freedom of speech with their students?

It’s no wonder they’ve become overly (clearly warranted now) paranoid about talking to their kids about anything that’s potentially ‘out of the norm’.

How do we expect our kids to learn anything if their teachers are (rightfully) fearful to talk about anything that might ruffle any feathers?

How can we encourage our kids to ask questions, create open discussions and healthy debates about topics that could ultimately result in their death?
