If we send generations of children into godless, collectivist, government owned and run schools we will get citizens who:
** think godlessly and worship moral relativism
** who are comfortable with collectivism
** who are comfortable with government compulsion
** who are comfortable with government ownership and management of their life and ( now) even death
You've hit the nail on the head. *Every* public school system in America has some sort of "diversity training" curriculum in place. Even down here in the "conservative" South. Typically, this curriculum is administered by an outside progressive group with a harmless sounding name. Invariably by high school, the group is pushing the gay agenda.
Here, in Tennessee the Hamilton County schools invite in the "Kids on the Block." Harmless sounding, right?
However a quick scan of a gay website reveals this (http://www.tennesseevalleypride.com/?page_id=338):
Tennessee Valley Pride Community Pages is great way to connect with gay friendly businesses and organizations in Chattanooga, TN and surrounding counties."
...and among the list?

This is the infection that is spreading unchecked in *your* local public school, encouraged by progressive administrators and teachers. Unless the school system is fixed, conservatism is dead - and America with it.
"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."
""Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."
Eliminating the Department of Education and regaining control of what have become centers of liberal indoctrination must be priority #1 of conservatives; failure to win this battle will spell defeat in the long run no matter how many front line battles we temporarily win.
Unless the school system is fixed, ......
Please give up the idea that collectivist government schooling can be “fixed”. How is it possible to fix a system of schooling that is fundamentally corrupt today and has been corrupt since its inception in the mid-1800s to early 1900s?
From the very first day the first compulsory, collectivist, government owned and run school opened in these United States children have learned to be comfortable with collectivism, socialism, government compulsion, and collectivist ownership and management of their lives.
As for our earliest modern government schools, they offered the children a generic and lukewarm Protestantism ( greatly influenced by the Unitarian philosophy of the northeast). What does Christ do with the lukewarm? He spits them out of His mouth!
By my grandmother's day( born 1894) and my father's day ( born 1913) locally managed schools were utterly secular in their worldview with a sprinkle of scripture and prayer to start the day. There was a **HUGE** deference between their educations and that of my mother and me in our Catholic schools.
Even if collectivist school districts were the size of a suburban housing division, children would still learn that government has guns to force others to pay for a school service their parents want for free. The curriculum would still be secular or, at best, generically religious. The children would still learn to be comfortable with collectivist socialism and collectivist people's committees running and owning their very lives and even deaths.
Solution: Government schooling must be shut down, the buildings razed, the foundations dug up, and the ground salted.
Solution: If vouchers, tax credits, and charters can help build the private infrastructure to move to complete privatization that then I support these measures. ...BUT...Ultimately we must move to a completely **private** system of K-12 schooling with parents and/or private voucher foundation paying for it. Conservatives must work to see that every child in this nation ( even in the world) has access to a private **conservative**, Judeo-Christian based education.
