    I probably should have soundly reprimanded her, she didnt have her own kids but i think your take away was sposed to be that speaking as a teacher they line them up and stick them in grade school

Hasn’t been an issue in public schools here at all
    The CA Waldorf people (ime* neither soccermoms nor hippies, even if they crunch) have long driven antivax stuff but the torch has been taken since covid for being against every vax along partisan lines.

    *not soccermoms because they didn’t let the kids do competitive sports, not hippies because they made too much money.

That second part is where the trouble comes from much of the time- when a really smart person meets a limited pool of information and forms faulty conclusions cause the data they used was bad.
    And of course we know that Facebook and YouTube algorithms exploit and amplify confirmation bias.
