“The Children’s Story,” is a short, 28 minute story by author James Clavell. It’s a story of a school classroom following a war between America and an unnamed country. The story takes place in a school classroom in the United States in the aftermath of a war between the US and an unnamed country. A new teacher replaces the former teacher and it is believed that this new teacher is there for propaganda purposes. It becomes evident that the new teacher is in charge of re-educating the children to be loyal to the victor. The students are convinced to abandon their loyalty to their nation and their faith in God. All the while, the teacher encourages the students to accept and be upbeat about the change, suggesting they are benefitting from the takeover. A lesson to be watched, learned and shared.
