The Frenchies are not happy with his newest educational proposal to teach 10 year olds stories of 10 year old jewish kids who were killed in the holocaust. Now, yes, I can see how many people could find this distasteful on the ground of the children's age, but one has to wonder if the age argument applies anymore. I mean, no one would've said anything if this was taught to 12 year olds, and since 10 is the new 12 (goddamn you growth hormones and mentally stimulating technology),I am not sure that it's problematic on the grounds of age. It is, however, problematic from the view of indoctrination. Sure, Anti-semitism is on the rise in France, but is this really the best way to combat it?
