California Junior High Principal Apologizes For Not Warning Parents About Pro-Homosexual Program
CNS News ^ | Thursday, December 03, 2009 | Penny Starr

Posted on 12/03/2009 12:25:32 PM PST by Sopater

The principal and a teacher at Goleta Valley Junior High School in Santa Barbara County, California are apologizing to parents for not following school district policy relating to a pro-homosexual workshop given to 8th grade students in a leadership class at the school.

The controversial workshop was presented by “Just Communities Central Coast” in three, 45-minute sessions over three days. It included handouts defining homosexual terminology, including queer and transgender, and listed “heterosexism” as “oppression that ‘pushes down’ people who are LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and questioning) and ‘pushes up’ people who are straight.”

The handout defines sexual orientation this way: “Refers to who we feel romantically and sexually attracted to and who we fall in love with.”

One page featuring cartoon-like figures and entitled “Gender & Sexuality Definitions: A Visual Map,” depicts a person's body with the heart area labeled as “sexual orientation” and the genital area labeled as “sex.”

A page entitled “Heterosexism” asks students to answer a three-part question: “How are LGBTQ people discriminated against or mistreated in the United States, in your local community and in your school?”

Afterall, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

Here is an idea. Sue them as if he was distributing pornography to the students. Bring in physchologists who believe the children were damaged by the teachers actions. Play the game the left has played and don’t back down till they fire the principal.

This is the time they are wasting - I don't even mind that they are doing this as much - just the fact that taxdollars are going to spend time on this kind of crap.

So many schools no longer educate, they just indoctrinate.

But, but, but the proponents of Prop 8 lied when they said homosexuality would be taught to our children.

If the population would just become more homosexual we could have less useless breathers destroying the planet, doncha know. This is the key to understanding the love affair between corporate media, gays, public educators, and the radical greens.

It takes a generation to reshape a society.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

correct

many parents now should sue in court for the damage their kids had to endure and how they perceive life for the future

the left have been suing for years and now it is high time to do the same to them and see how they like it.
sue their arse off and see if any other schools will want to push this agenda

here’s a novel idea

how about teaching the real facts behind the history of America.
They just might understand the real meaning behind the 4th of July, the war where over half million lost their lives and the supposed reconstruction after it

then there is geography, Math, English and how about PE too.

They knew EXACTLY what they were dong by showing this and as another poster said

sue them for the damage the child endured
sue the school the schools area and get get the teacher fired

Some months back I read a very wise, very revealing comment here on FreeRepublic regarding the teaching of homosexuality in schools. The Freeper wrote:

“There’s only one reason adults want to teach children about homosexuality”.

I have never forgotten that and have used it often when debating this topic with liberal friends. It usually stops them dead in their tracks.

We're going to see a turn around in this country in the next election. Decent people are fed up with having this immoral garbage shoved down their throats and they're going to start pushing back.

Enough is enough!!! We don't care about the homosexual life style nor their sexual orientation or the ways they achieve their filthy orgasms and that the ingestation of fecal matter is part of it. We don't care that they are different.

Government schools are more focused on teaching sexual oriention and how to study for the test every year so the school can receive the Fed dollars. Teaching went out the window...now it's all about "money, Diversity,ect..." anything but teaching.

This is the dumbing down of America. No wonder our kids are confused,.... we've lost our priorities to the new social order! Do we all feel equally crappy yet?
