    Communism used to be a bad thing----- It seems that some schools have changed that. I've already bitched at my son's school for teaching him things that are just plain historical fiction.

    the schools in my area are more conservative, because our city/area is conservative majority.

    i know that no one here would tolerate this BS.

    although i do like the public schools here, i hope to put my son in a private school by the time he is ready for kindergarten.

    The "Diversity Bookbag" is America's Little Red Book.

    We need a homeschooling revolution. If I were a politician, I'd support major, major tax breaks for homeschoolers.

    Welcome to the board!!


    It's interesting how little rights this father has here over his own children yet the state here is so out of bounds it's absolutely incredible!! People better wake up in this country and pay attention to a story like this lest they find themselves in the same situation.

    The schools should get out of the business of behavior (outside of good behavior in the school itself) and into the business of knowledge. Instead of exhausting everybody with these dumb controversies (pledge,homosexuality) they should be teaching these kids how to study. Put the average American kid in a library and they couldn't find what they need if it bit them in the ass. Why not just rid the schools of all controversial social engineering whether it emanates from right or left. End the tug of war and get on with objective facts. No one disputes that 2+2=4 or that Abraham Lincoln was the president during the Civil War, but sadly many children don't even know that much because they are being distracted by feel good crap.
