Socialist War on God Continues
By Steve Farrell (09/20/05)
It's a crying shame that the very ideals/laws that are our greatest strength are allowed to be transformed into hollow perversions of what they were intended to suit wannabe intellectuals/people who believe in absolutely nothing, and stand for the same.
I think it should be noted that not only the socialists were advocating free public schooling. Alot of Christian groups last century wanted public schooling so children could learn to read the Bible and be educated Christians.
There it is in black and white - the communist agenda - which is aided and abetted by the useful idiots of the various liberal advocacy groups.
Excellent article Bonnie! (your rep is full)
This is exactly why school vouchers won't work in the long term. If parents yank their kids from government schools en masse, it won't stop our politicians from dictating the curriculum for schools. The correct answer is to abolish government-funded education entirely. How many parents could homeschool their kids or send them to private schools if they weren't paying such high property taxes in the first place? How many people could afford to donate to private scholarship funds, for those who can't afford tuition?
It would also have the nice effect of ending the whole prayer in school debate once and for all. If you want to teach christian, athiest, or whatever values...you can. No more one size fits all solutions.

Fuck the system. Home school your kids. Teach 'em Jesus, teach 'em whatever you WANT. Make a leftist squirm.
Not often that I echo WJ. However, I teach in a parochial school. We teach "Jesus", "love", "golden rule" on top of the 'basics.' I teach jr high, current count of 6-8th=53 kids. We have 78 working online laptops. Each of the 3 classrooms have 2004 encyclopedias. Our library at school suks for the jr high, though good for under 5th. The city library is excellent and the kids have access to college library through county.
Home school your kids, if possible. At MY school the 7th grade includes 5 BD students, 2 sociopaths. I'm NOT joking. Luckily for me, one of the 2 sociopaths parents recognizes a problem, is pulling the kid and sending to a military academy. I hope it helps, though I think the problem is deeper than discipline. I may be wrong and sincerely hope so.
The problem with a sociopath is not necessarily a lack of discipline .... it's a lack of conscience beyond one's own self-serving desires.
Exactly, which is why I worry for the parents, though they are trying. Imagine having a 12 year old, you are afraid of?
