Florida School District Hopes To Celebrate LGBT History Month

Florida School District Hopes To Celebrate LGBT History Month
PHOTOS.COM
October is LGBT History Month.

A school district in south Florida is expected to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender History Month. During LGBT History Month, a different “icon” is recognized every day.

Tomorrow, Broward County School Board members are expected to approve a decision to support LGBT History Month. Kindergarteners and seniors alike will be introduced to new role models.

Started in 1994 by Rodney Wilson, a high school history teacher in Missouri, LGBT History Month takes place every October and has been well received in California and Philadelphia.

“Administrators, teachers, staff, parents and students are encouraged to take part in LGBT History Month in any way that is most positive and uplifting to their schools and communities,” states the Broward County school board’s proposed resolution. “And to coordinate efforts to highlight exemplary role models from the LGBT community.”

Michael Rajner, a former member of the Broward school system’s Diversity Committee, said: “It gives youth a role model to look up to. And to realize that they themselves are a wonderful human being, and can be a productive, important member of our society.”

Some believe that if schools would support LGBT History Month, it would help put an end to bullying.

Eliana Mor, a 17-year-old female who says she has been picked on for wearing boy’s clothing, supports the decision.

“Coming from middle school and being bullied for so long, for so many years and seeing how everything has come full circle, it’s just great to see,” she said. “I knew by age 10, yeah, I liked boys, but I liked girls, too.”

    I would love to know who the school district superintendant is, so i could let him/her know how perverted he/she is. This is depravity at its worst. When will liberals be accountable for this bull.

    • Doc Sarvis

      I found this out and conveyed to them my support.

      • momo

        You would.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Yes, good for me and good for the citizens of Broward County.

      • http://naver samurai

        I guess you are just as much a pervert as they are Doc. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY! 하나님하고 나라를 위해서!

        You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

    • Rocky Night

      What is next pedophilia history month?

      • Doc Sarvis

        Is that what you are proposing????
        I didn’t know you were THAAAAT!

      • Vigilant

        From Wikipedia:

        “In the 2001 San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Parade Pelosi marched along with long time CPUSA member and gay rights pioneer Harry Hay. A gay activist group calling itself the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), eulogized Hay as “the first to realize that the dream of equality for our community could be attained through visibility and activism”.

        “An outspoken advocate of the North American Man-Boy Love Association NAMBLA, Hay regularly addressed NAMBLA conferences. NAMBLA carries published material by Hay on its website dating back to 1984. The ACLU defended NAMBLA against a $200 million lawsuit by parents of a 10 year old murder victim who claimed their sons’ killer was motivated by published material on NAMBLA’s website. Pelosi has taken $10,000 in campaign contributions from the Human Rights Campaign.”

      • Doc Sarvis

        Vigilant & Rocky Night
        If that type of person is who you look up to I feel sorry for you.

      • Vigilant

        Sarvis, if your absolute blindness leads you to believe that comments by either Rocky or myself constitute an endorsement of such perversion, then I feel sorry for you.

        How divorced from reality and a basic understanding of the English language can someone like yourself be?

    • Randy131

      You want to make liberals accountable and stop these abominations, then have your state pass a school voucher system and give parents the freedom to remove their children from the influences and indoctrination of people who corrupt their morals, such as is now about to happen in Broward County , Florida. The Teachers Union’s strike in Chicago would never had happened if that city had a voucher system, giving the parents the freedom to move their children to schools that don’t fail their children like those in Chicago (40% fail to graduate in the city of Chicago, and it keeps getting worse, while teachers there are the highest paid in the nation), and allowed them to enroll their children in schools where teachers are held accountable, like private schools and especially religious backed schools. When the colonies were formed, most all schools were religious backed, and taught Christian values and morals, exactly what is lacking in our schools today, and those colony schools created the great men and women who formed and started this great nation, and is what is needed today for our children, and voucher systems will allow the parents the right to choose what education is best for their children, and not hold them hostage in schools that fail to educate them as they should and make the teachers and their Union bosses rich. It would also stop the forcing of immorality on our children, such as you want to hold these people in Broward County, Florida, accountable for. Another benefit for a voucher system is it also lowers your property taxes, and other taxes used for education, tremendously while providing a much better education for your children.

    • Dr. Dana Sheppard

      Johnny, I, like yourself, would like to condemn the Superintendent for such nonsense. Children growing up have enough to contend with. They do not need to stress or learn about adult idiots who flaunt themselves before the world all while knowing they are an abomdiable sight before the Lord God. Johnny, they don’t need to fool themselves with this as when they die, they will ALL bow the knee before the Lord. Then they face a death in hell’s fire and an eternity without God. How terrible that would be! I pray for them each and every day for them to see the travisity of their deeds and turn from them and ask the Lord God for forgiveness. He loves them too; however, he despises their deeds.

      The public school system has become the stage for such idiots!

  • T. Jefferson

    My children will not celebrate a deviate lifestyle. Do what you will, that is between you and God. Just keep it out of the class room.The bible proclaims your life style an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. Teaching it’s acceptance in school is in violation of my religious freedoms. Separation of church and state is a two way street. You don’t want me in your business, stay out of mine.

    • Robert Smith

      “Teaching it’s acceptance in school is in violation of my religious freedoms. ”

      No it isn’t. ;You can still hate and advocate denial the rights of others in the name of your brutal god all you want.

      Rob

      • Shaana

        As long as its not in school, right, Rob?

      • Al

        why is it when a conservative doesn’t like something, agree w/liberals we are labeled as hate mongers. Liberals won’t permit teaching of creation in schools or abstinence or other conservative beliefs but it is okay to teach the liberal perverted beliefs. We don’t hate any of you we don’t agree w/your lifestyle choice & do not want you teaching it is okay to our children. Liberals don’t want free open exchange they only want their way. What happened to just teaching reading, writing & math instead of indoctrination.

      • Butch

        Robert, you can be as hypocritical and perverted as you want but that doesn’t give schools the right to indoctrinate kids into thinking pedophilia/homosexuality is “normal”. You say we “hate” but YOU hate us for standing up for our beliefs. YOU hate us for voicing our opinions. You want people to accept yr perversion but are insulted when we don’t. “Tolerance” is a one way street w/ liberals.

      • rendarsmith

        Robert, why don’t you look up “hypocrite” in the dictionary. Hope it’s a good picture of you in there.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Our schools teach plenty about war and hate. I think it is great to teach about love between two consenting adults. I think it is also great that kids who may have gay parents or who suspect that they may be gay themselves understand that this is okay and not something to be ashamed of.

  • Jamie Cameron

    Teaching” Acceptance of others as Individuals , is a early age need,

    • http://sailorjo.wordpress.com sailorjo

      Agree with you. But that should happen in the home and not cost tax payer’s money. The schools are not there to correct social ills but to provide a place for learning academics.

  • http://personallibertyalerts Carol Snyder

    I’m not allowed to dislike these lifestyles but others are allowed to force their beliefs and lifestyle on me and my kids. Theres something drastically wrong with this. Do what you will but dont try to force your beliefs and lifestyles on meb

    ut

  • Dave

    It’s very simple. The parents of these children should notify the school superintendent that their child will not be allowed to participate. If the school forces them to participate the parents should hold their child out of school. If they give a celebration and no one comes, well you know the rest. The parents should also find out who the individual was, either superintendent or school board, that signed off on this garbage and work to get them fired. Enough with this crap.

    • Shaana

      I wish I lived in FL only for the support of the parents. I woul be willing to FREELY watch any child staying OUT of this class/days of school for LGBT History days.

  • SCConservative

    I grew up in (then) rural Broward County, and if I still lived there, I would be the loudest voice letting the school board know that this is not acceptable! I thought it was bad 30 years ago when I was in school there, but this is way over the top. I would never subject my children to this type of indoctrination, and would do everything I could to make sure that it did not stand!

    Broward County parents and taxpayers, please, please protest this abomination by your local government in any way that you legally can, and let them know that it is not acceptable. Remember, these “leaders” work for you, and you are paying their salaries. They are totally out of control, and have forgotten who SHOULD be in charge!

    • http://sailorjo.wordpress.com sailorjo

      Very good! I consider myself liberal but this is ridiculous.

  • Scott in SC

    Looking at the Broward Co. Schools website i see the Board is made up of 8 white females and 1 black male; not a whole lot of diversity there. But the biggest problem I see is that every one of the members has had a career in education – teachers, principals, administrators which is exactly what a school board should not be. It’s like having a parole board made up of felons.

    • Bob

      The article says, “they can be a productive member of society.” How can this be? Queers do not reproduce.

      • carl m

        Bob, thats not only good but true also. I think that group of people should all get together and move to island somewhere. Then, in about 75 yrs. they can get back with us haters and let us know how thats workingout for them.

      • Karolyn

        What a ridiculous remark! Reproduction has nothing to do with production! Jeez! All gays I’ve known have been PRODUCTIVE members of society.

  • http://sailorjo.wordpress.com sailorjo

    It is none of the school district’s business to celebrate anything but academic successes by it’s pupils. But it confirms my diagnosis: The administrators have lost the orientation of what their purpose is. Schools have become social clubs instead of places of academic achievements. The trouble is, that these administrators milk the home owners as if they were ATMs. It’s so much much fun to spend OPM!

    • Karolyn

      Other months are celebrated, like Black History Month, etc., so why not LGBT month? why not do things to stop the hate instead of perpetuating it like conservatives do?

  • JDN

    Isn’t I’m proud to be gay month distracting from the Black history month and I’m ashamed of being White flagalation week ?

    • Doc Sarvis

      Are you one of those victims Romney likes to talk about?

      • momo

        Are you one of the 47 percent?

      • Doc Sarvis

        Nope, I’m lucky to be one of the working class.

  • Steve E

    I am not queer, but I am a sinner. I doesn’t seem fair to have a month set aside for just one type of sin. It discriminates against all the other sinners of different types. They should change the name to “Sin History Month”. That is the only way to make it fair and it would redistribute the glory sin to all of society. And for the people who claim not to be sinners, we can namel the following month in their honor to “Lying History Month”.

  • CBUETT

    This is Hilarious, (by hilarious I mean horrific i guess) forget that kids around the world are learning math, science, health and technology skills. American kids are going to be eaten alive by the foreign kids. I dont care what other people do in there home; but for crying out loud my 2nd grader doesnt need to know about sex changes. Well my 2nd grader goes to parochial school so her and her sister will be educated; but public school kids good luck in life kiddos!

  • Old504Troop

    This is shameful that a school district feels they should dedicate time to teaching alternative lifestyles instead the core studies that our schools are deficient in: math, english, US HISTORY & GOVERNMENT, and science. It may seem funny and innocuous, but it’s like a gateway drug – if they are allowed to establish this curriculum, what’s next- socialist values and communism? The list of communist goals to takeover America from within was entered into the Congressional Record, Jan. 10, 1963, here are a few:
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.

    • Michael J.

      Old504Troop,
      Thanks, it’s good to know that others are aware of The Communist Manifesto and it’s spawn, Political Correctness. It’s a shame that your post may fall upon deaf ears here. Most cannot process the thought that we were sold out before our fathers were born. They’ll just bicker back and forth with the sites designated paid protagonist whose job it is to lure them away from any meaningful discussion by parroting repetitive absurdities non-stop.

      • Wumingren

        It’s not so much deaf ears that the Communist Manifesto falls upon that worries me; it’s the eager ears that applaud the Communists and seek to install Communism in America that worry me.

  • CBUETT

    With the debt our country has and the liabilities of Social Security and Medicare, Welfare and Food Stamps; our military commitments abroad every American voting age and older, we are peices of garbage for what we have let this country saddle these children with. And now we cant even give most of the kids a proper education to solve the problem. Class acts we all are.

  • Viet Nam Vet 67-68

    I would rid myself of whoever is running that insane asylum and make sure they never teach in America let them go to an Arab Country and teach that CRAP!!! Viet Nam Vet 67-68

      What “Arab” country teaches tollerance toward homosexuals in public schools?

        To answer your question, Doc, none. In many ways they are more civilized then we are, and adhere to a higher standard of morality then we do!

      • Sirian

        Jay,
        So, “in many ways they are more civilized then we”. . . “and adhere to a higher morality then we do!” Really? How very little you honestly know about the cultural aspects of that region of the world. Tell ya what, jump to this article and be sure to watch the video.

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        Sirian, i have met many Arabs in my travels and found them to be very hospitable and kind to me. The same could be said of many of my countrymen, Americans. Sure there’s a radical element(s) in their culture, as there are many radicals elements here, and everywhere else, for that matter. Would it be fair to paint all Americans as war-moungering-imperialist-baby-killing-socialist-marxsist-wing-nuts? Of course not. Should not the Arab people be afforded the same said benefit of the doubt? Besides, how can we point a finger at anyone, when we, as a nation, are less then squeaky-clean? Can anything good be said of a nation that murders 1 million of their defenceless each year? Can anything good be said of a nation that invades other countries, as we have been doing decades, under trumpt-up charges, killing innocent civilians, destroying their countries and way of life? Yet knowing this, we point our accusatory fingers and criticize them for their moral failings? I’m well aware that not all, is well over there, and that there are issues they struggle with, as we do here. But before we judge others for their shortcomings, would we not be taken more seriously, and have a greater chance at exacting change in others, if we first cleaned up the sh*t in our own back-yard, first?

    The solution is simple. If you don’t agree with the public school’s policies, you should remove your children from it, immediately. I did! This way, both are free to teach their children accordingly.

  • Ms.Young

    Most Of You On This Website Are Narcissistic Parents
    Narcissistic parents demand certain behavior from their children because they see the children as extensions of themselves, and need the children to represent them in the world in ways that meet the parents’ emotional needs. This parenting ‘style’ most often results in estranged relationships with the children, coupled with feelings of resentment and self-destructive tendencies.
    Most Gay children Have Narcissistic Parents;Therefore Children Need Help From the Public School System To Help Them Love The True Person They Are Ment To Be.

    • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

      The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.

    • Wumingren

      Are you suggesting that two moms or two pops don’t teach their children that being gay is cool?

      • Wumingren

        Correction: I should have said, “… adopted children … “

      • Karolyn

        Not all of their children are adopted.

        • Wumingren

          I thought of that when I wrote my comment, but writing for folks like you needs to be written like the small print in a home insurance policy to cover all the bases, and then it would be very tedious to read. But thanks for playing.

    Part of school curricula now involves class activities known as “Islam simulation.” A gigantic banner at the front of a school proclaimed: “There is one God, Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.” A shocked parent asked, “What if we put up a sign that says “Jesus is Lord” for thirty minutes? Oh, no! You can’t do that — separation of church and state. They aren’t just teaching them about Islam; they have them practicing it.”

    Research into why students in different schools were “dressed up in Muslim attire, chanting from the Koran” and role-playing, revealed that teachers were following state standards.

    According to Maddoux, such practices are designed to “gradually alter a child’s conscience, belief system, personality, values and behavior.” Children become confused and feel isolated if they don’t conform. They experience “cognitive dissonance.”

    It is pointed out that whether teachers realize it or not, they can contribute to “a process of deception, intimidation, coercion, and mind control.” Through sex education lessons that include Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) presentations and Planned Parenthood involvement, there is no absolute truth. Right or wrong becomes relative to the situation and the choices made by the group, i.e. “consensus.”

    Description of the Hegelian dialectic and brief summaries of the teachings of Karl Marx, Antonio Gramsci, and John Dewey supply the pieces that comprise the big picture of public school education today. Teachers simply follow the curricula, utilizing the methodology they’ve been taught.

    In an interview on Point of View radio, Dean Gotcher, researcher and author, explained “the need for facilitators — professional change agents, trained in group dynamics and on the intricacies of how to move a group to a preset conclusion.”

    Processes develop “reasoning” or “decision-making” abilities in students: “mind manipulation techniques inside innocent-sounding names,” such as Higher Order Thinking Skills, Cooperative Learning, Outcome-Based Education, and Values Clarification.

    The warning from Maddoux is clear: “The public school system has assumed the parental role.” What advice is proffered? “I sincerely believe that every Christian parent in America should get his or her children out of the public schools system.” Pronto!!!

      Fundamentalist Jews, Christians and Muslims Are A Curse To True Christianity.Maybe we would have more peace in our public school system if Fundamentalist Jews, Christians and Muslims would take their children out of the public school system?

        What Is Fundamentalism?

        The word fundamentalism is somewhat hard to define, and there are many definitions on the Internet with little in common with one another. The word is used both as an adjective (e.g., fundamental Islamist) and as a noun (e.g., the Fundamentalist movement). The adjective is used to describe any religious impulse that adheres to its basic tenets, often in a authoritarian way without making a distinction between church and state. In modern times this adjective is often used in a derogatory sense. This article will deal with the Fundamentalist movement found in Christian Protestantism during the 20th century.

        The Fundamentalist movement had its roots at Princeton Theological Seminary by graduates from that institution. The word was first used in association with religion when two wealthy church laymen commissioned ninety-seven conservative church leaders from all over the western world to write 12 volumes on the basic tenets of the Christian faith. They then published these writings and distributed over 300,000 copies free of charge to ministers and others involved in church leadership. The books were entitled The Fundamentals, and they are still in print today in a two-volume set.

        Fundamentalism was formalized in the late 19th century and early 20th century by conservative Christians—John Nelson Darby, Dwight L. Moody, B. B. Warfield, Billy Sunday, and others—who were concerned that moral values throughout the world were being eroded by Modernism—a trend of thought that affirms the power of human beings (rather than God) to create, improve, and reshape their environment with the aid of scientific knowledge, technology and practical experimentation. Modernism was not only infesting the culture at large, but was gaining ground in government and religion. In addition, religion was being affected by the German higher criticism movement.

        Fundamentalism is considered to be built around the five tenets of the Christian faith, although there is much more to the movement then those tenets. The five tenets are:

        1) The insistence that the Bible is to be taken as literally true. Along with this is the belief that the Bible is inerrant, i.e., without error and free from all contradictions.

        2) The virgin birth and deity of Christ—the belief that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit and that He was and is the Son of God, fully human and fully divine.

        3) The doctrine of substitutionary atonement through God’s grace and human faith—the belief that Christ was crucified for all the sins of man, and because of His perfect sacrifice, all men can find salvation through faith in Him.

        4) The bodily resurrection of Jesus—the belief that He was crucified and died and on the third day, He rose from the grave and now sits at the right hand of the Father.

        5) The authenticity of the miracles of Christ as found in Scripture and His pre-millennial second coming.

        Other things believed by fundamentalists are that Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible, the church will be raptured prior to the tribulation of the end times, and other doctrines such as dispensationalism.

        The Fundamentalist movement has had many characteristics over the years, and to deny that some were negative would be understating the truth. Often, there was a strong militancy for truth, and this led to much infighting with many leaving their churches to form new denominations. One of the defining characteristics of fundamentalism has been that adherents often see themselves as the guardians of the truth, usually to the exclusion of others’ biblical interpretation. But on a positive note one has to consider that at that time the world was embracing liberalism, modernism, Darwinism, and liberal biblical interpretation. These movements were having a destructive influence on our culture, and many in the church were concerned about the loss of influence of biblical teaching, and rightly so.

        The movement took a severe credibility hit in 1925 by liberal press coverage of the legendary Scopes trial. Although fundamentalists won the trial, they lost in the court of public opinion. After that time the movement began to splinter and morph into other points of focus. The most prominent and vocal group in the USA has been the Christian Right. This group of self-described fundamentalists has been more involved in political movements than most other religious groups. By the 1990s, groups such as the Christian Coalition and Family Research Council have had a great amount of influence in politics and cultural issues, mostly through the Republican party. Their emphasis has been to control the White House and to have appointed conservative constitutional judges to the Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit courts. Today, the movement has a strong following in church circles through the different evangelical denominations such the Southern Baptist Convention. Together these groups claim to have more than 30 million followers.

        Like all movements, Fundamentalism has enjoyed many successes and many failures.

        The greatest failure has come from allowing the liberal press to define what it means to be a fundamentalist. They have not only defined the term but have been able to identify fundamentalists as radical, snake-handling kooks that want to form a Christian government and force their beliefs on the population at large. This is not only far from the truth but is a total misconception about the intentions of fundamentalists. The charge to fundamentalists everywhere has always been to be guardians of the truth of Scripture and defenders of the Christian faith. In that regard they have attempted to provide a great service for humanity. The church is struggling in the postmodern, secular culture and needs people that are not ashamed to proclaim the gospel of Christ as it was intended by adherence to a conservative doctrine of fundamental principles. These principles are the bedrock upon which Christianity stands, and, as Jesus taught, the house built upon the Rock will weather any storm (Matthew 7:24-25).

      Thank you for proving my point about Fundamentalist Christians.

    Maybe if they eliminated all you queers, we would live well, and in peace. No teacher, or administrator should be teaching children about gays, and how they make love anyways; they have no business doing such things like that at all. Two men cannot reproduce, two women cannot reproduce, but a man and woman can; it is the natural way of things. A man doesn’t have the ability to carry a child in his belly for nine months, how is he going to give birth and feed it. He don’t have breasts, womb, and birth canal; he wasn’t born with those organs to begin with.

      15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.

      16 You will [l]fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?

      17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [[m]worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit.

      18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear [n]excellent fruit [worthy of admiration].

      19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.

      20 Therefore, you will [o]fully know them by their fruits.

      21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.

      22 Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?

      23 And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].

      Galatians 5:22-23
      22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
      This (The Fruit Of The Spirit) is the house built upon the Rock which will weather any storm not todays Fundamentalist.

        So, you despise fundamentalist Christians, but you quote from the Bible about false prophets. Woman, you’re the false prophet, picking and choosing from the Bible only those parts of which you find palatable. Are you one of those that pardons libertine lifestyles on a partial quote from the Bible: Luke 4:4 But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’”

        Those that quote only the first part, with a smirk, intend the inference, “Everything goes!” There are many who do not even know the entire verse, because it is so often taken out of context.

        You, woman, are an abomination, and I shall not further communicate with you, so you need not respond. But I leave this, from the same Chapter of Matthew you quote, as a warning to all who do continue to dialogue with you: Matthew 7:6 Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

    One of the principal dangers of modern education is that it has formalised every sphere of human activity…be it infant care, pre-schooling, mother care courses, marriage guidance, adult education, continuing education…almost all areas of human pursuits come under methodological supervision.

    Man has really institutionalised most of the learning required of him in life. Bowen and Hobson lament: “The world wide movement towards a mass, public institutionalized education is now creating a virtual crisis situation.”

    The contemporary age has given in and bowed down to organised schools for its every possible future need without family being a stabilizing force to strengthen it.

    Gabriel Compayre comments: “The school would be powerless, notwithstanding all its efforts to develop sensibility in children who have not brought the first germs of it from their home life.”

    Doubtless, it belongs mainly to the family to sow the seeds of future life in a child. The family certainly has precedence over the school by the priority, continuity and duration.

    That is how F. C. Happold puts it: “Education comes not primarily through words, but through situations, not primarily through instruction, but from a pattern of living, not primarily through courses of study, but through an intangible spiritual atmosphere created by members of family.”

    Public Schools No Place for Teachers’ Kids

    More than 25 percent of public school teachers in Washington and Baltimore send their children to private schools, a new study reports.

    Nationwide, public school teachers are almost twice as likely as other parents to choose private schools for their own children, the study by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute found. More than 1 in 5 public school teachers said their children attend private schools.

    In Washington (28 percent), Baltimore (35 percent) and 16 other major cities, the figure is more than 1 in 4. In some cities, nearly half of the children of public school teachers have abandoned public schools.

    In Philadelphia, 44 percent of the teachers put their children in private schools; in Cincinnati, 41 percent; Chicago, 39 percent; Rochester, N.Y., 38 percent. The same trends showed up in the San Francisco-Oakland area, where 34 percent of public school teachers chose private schools for their children; 33 percent in New York City and New Jersey suburbs; and 29 percent in Milwaukee and New Orleans.

    Michael Pons, spokesman for the National Education Association, the 2.7-million-member public school union, declined a request for comment on the study’s findings. The American Federation of Teachers also declined to comment.

    Public school teachers told the Fordham Institute’s surveyors that private and religious schools impose greater discipline, achieve higher academic achievement and offer overall a better atmosphere.

    “Across the states, 12.2 percent of all families — urban, rural and suburban — send their children to private schools,” says the report, based on 2000 census data.

    “Public education in many of our large cities is broken,” the surveyors conclude. “The fix? Choice, in part, to be sure.”

    Public school teachers in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Chicago, Rochester, N.Y., and Baltimore registered the most dissatisfaction with the schools in which they teach.

    “These results do not surprise most practicing teachers to whom we speak,” say report authors Denis P. Doyle, founder of a school improvement company, SchoolNet Inc.; Brian Diepold, an economics graduate student at American University; and David A. DeSchryver, editor of the Doyle Report, an online education policy and technology
    journal.

    “Teachers, it is reasonable to assume, care about education, are reasonably expert about it and possess quite a lot of information about the schools in which they teach. We can assume that no one knows the condition and quality of public schools better than teachers who work in them every day.”

    “They know from personal experience that many of their colleagues make such a choice [for private vs. public schools], and do so for good and sufficient reasons.”

    The report says the school choice movement has begun competitively forcing public school improvement, particularly in cities like Milwaukee, called “a hotbed of school reform,” where 29.4 percent of public school teachers sent their children to private schools, the study finds.

    Suppose you went to eat at a strange restaurant and, upon asking the waitress what was good on the menu, she told you that she didn’t know because she never ate there. When you ask why, she explains that the food and atmosphere are much better at her favorite place, and even though the food costs more, it’s worth it. You would naturally attribute a great deal of credibility to this waitress because she was honest enough to point you away from the place where she has a personal stake in its success. In other words, you would trust her word more than another employee, because she is working against her own interest by recommending you go elsewhere to eat.

    The debate about public vs. private schools is similar to the restaurant analogy. According to a study by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, public school teachers are almost twice as likely (1 in 5 overall) as other parents to choose private schools for their own children.

    You know there’s something wrong when those who know the public school system best, and have a vested financial interest in keeping their own kids there, send them to private schools instead. The figure would actually be higher if many of these same teachers could afford private schools, as the study showed that the lower the teacher’s salary, the less likely they were to choose private schools. In many cities, one third to one half of public school teachers chose private schools for their kids. And this study was done eight years ago. Does anyone think our schools have gotten better since then?

    The question is why? Well, just like the restaurant analogy, the top three reasons given for the switch to private schools were: 1) higher academic achievement, 2) greater discipline, and 3) better atmosphere.

    The two largest teachers’ unions, the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), declined to comment on the report, thus lending a great deal of credibility to it. I mean, what can you say when a substantial number of your own employees don’t believe in how you run your business? Kind of reminds you of that Pepsi commercial where the Coke delivery guy keeps getting caught drinking Pepsi.

    The unions’ response to failing schools, along with their allies in the Democrat party and the rest of the government educational establishment, has been to fight school choice tooth and nail. In Louisiana, they have gone so far as to threaten private schools who accept vouchers. School choice is an idea whose time has finally come. Unfortunately, it came at a steep price – several generations of young people whose education was sacrificed at the altar of governmental monopoly. And the battle has just begun.

    We look back and wonder how we ever let our education bureaucrats take our money and give us no choice in how they spend it to educate our kids. It happened at a time in our history when we trusted government to be responsive to we, the people, and make the right decisions. That time has passed. The government’s own employees’ choices have told us all we need to know.

    What makes me sick is that the LGBT community has taking over the anti-bullying campaign. It is not just gay kids that are bullied, all sorts of kids are and it is a serious problem (look up Phoebe Prince, she wasn’t gay). But the media only seems to care about gay kids getting bullied. What about all the others?

    • rendarsmith

      And if the school district thinks this is going to help with bullying, they are crazy. This is only going to piss off the bullies more for having to put up with this agenda and having it thrown in their face even more.

      • Karolyn

        If the kids were raised properly, there wouldn’t be any bullying in the first place! Angry, bullying parents, like many who post here about killing, raise angry bullying kids.

    • Karolyn

      That’s not true. ALL bullying is being addressed these days.

      • 45caliber

        Really?

        From what I’ve seen of bullying, the school will step in only if they consider the action neutral. If the bully belongs to a gang, they will do nothing for fear the rest of the gang will object. If the bully is the son or daughter of someone important, again what they do is basically ignored. And teacher bullying, which happens more than most realize, is totally ignored unless the parents sue.

      The art of bullying, rendarsmith, has become very sophisticated. It is not, as some are under the impression, necessarily physical. Oh no, bullying has been crafted and elevated to the level of science. Extremely difficult to discern, and, in my opinion, impossible to eradicate! What most parents may not be aware of, is that there are well organized social-cliques in schools, that will ferret-out, what they deem to be undesirables, and will proceed to torment their target, verbally, socially, emotionally and psychologically, until they achieve their desired affect on their victim. And all this is done with such subtlety and stealth, that it becomes discernible only after the concerted campaign, as i stated, achieves its desired results. Pray tell, how does one stop such sinister behaviour? This is one of the reasons, among others, that prompted me to homeschool my Son.

    I’ve always felt it wrong to single out one group to honor in such a way without singling out all of them. Actually, I dont’ think the sexual orientation of someone makes much difference in what they can do historically. It is what they do that counts and should be discussed.
