At Least They Asked?

When you write a survey, you should consider each question carefully.

Are you guiding the respondent to one answer or another? Are you showing bias? I once answered “incorrectly” on a psych test for a job by saying “no” to a question “Do you feel you are in charge of your life?”

Christian folks — especially those waiting weeks for their first unemployment check — might have reasons to respond in the negative.

The North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson sent this to teachers by email.


Of course there is also this published two days ago:

The state should not ask teachers to bring firearms to class but should instead fund more trained law enforcement officers in schools, the head of the state Department of Public Instruction says.

“We already ask so much of our educators. I do not believe we should ask them to take on another massive responsibility of having firearms in the classroom,” state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson said in a statement posted on Twitter Monday.

For the record, no one wants to carry a gun to school. Are some teachers willing to do what is necessary to protect kids? That’s a different question.

Thanks for asking.

    Odd that they wouldn’t pose the question “Would you like to be unarmed during a mass shooting incident at school?”.

    “Would you rather be unarmed and see your students shot to death or would you rather be able to shoot back?”
