    Nearly half the students got the survey? :wtf: This wasn't an in-class, seems they are recruiting. They should be fired.

    Sure smells like recruitment to me, but you know how we keep getting told we all just imagine that? :cof:

    Hmm. Where has mankind headed itself? Are people so uncontented with their own sex lives that they need to pry into those of other people?

    By the way, I know that way way way less than half of high school students are not married, what happened to waiting? The question in the survey about whether or not they have slept with someone of the same sex or not shouldnt even be pondered, it should automatically be a NO for ANYONE. And here I thought schools were supposed to uphold moral character, not go with trends.

    I agree with Kathianne; this sounds more like recruitment than gathering of opinion.
    May as well ask, "When did you notice you had two hands?" Having two hands is not abnormal. Having one hand or three hands is noticeable because different from what is common or "normal."

    This questionnaire is an admitted attempt to influence teens' feelings and opinions about homosexuality. What is most frustrating to me, as a parent, is that these teachers seem to believe it is their right and duty to thrust their social values on these kids, regardless of the parents' wishes. IMO, it takes a lot of matza to believe that you are justified in undermining a parents' authority over their own children.

    And they don't just want the kids' opinions. My daughter brought home a survey from Health class last fall, and told me that I had to answer questions from it. It was an assignment. Questions such as my opinion of gays and gay rights.
