One of those most telling points of the governor's town hall meeting yesterday was a Toms River teacher who stood up and posed a very interesting thought to Governor Christie.

“I think what you should do is get patriotism back in our schools. It’s gone,” resident Tony Graziano told the governor. “I think you should literally ban political correctness. It’s suffocating our schools.”The former teacher raised a very good point, one that got no argument from Governor Christie. The governor believes that there are so many cooks in the kitchen with education.

Are too many small groups dictating the beliefs of the majority in schools nowadays? Has NJ's education system become so politically correct that we've become afraid of offending anyone to the point we've lost our identity.
