Stated one georgia teacher to a student,

“The United States is a People’s Democracy”


REALLY??? What’s going on in our schools?
Recently at a middle school in a suburb of Atlanta, Roswell, a history teacher at Elkins Pointe was teaching a class on the different types of govt. in the world.  The teacher stated the United States is a “People’s Democracy”.  One of the children raised her hand and when the teacher called upon her she stated the United States is a Constitutional Republic.

The teacher attempted to bully and stifle all dissent

With one word,”HALLWAY” and a finger point, the child was ordered to leave the class and accompany the teacher to the hallway where she was told under no  conditions was the teacher going to put up with this today. I can only suppose the teacher had had enough of those who support our current system of govt.


The meaning of the term “People’s Democracy” is closely related to  the meaning of the noun, Marxism.
Marxism is defined as,
‘The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society’s allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.’
