Public schools, ruining generation after generation, one life at a time.
The same kind of crap happened in Catholic schools in the 70s. I should know, I went through it.
Public schools are not perfect, by any means, but the constant bashing of them by a certain few members of this site has totally gotten out of hand.
Those that do it, and you know who you are, enjoy taking an incident here or an incident there and extrapolate it to any and every public school that exists. Guess what folks? You're wrong.
Please remember - correlation does NOT equal causation.
Those who so viciously attack us who choose to send our children to public schools or choose to work in them prove by their own words they are not the saints they wish others to believe them to be.
I had originally planned to comment on the ridiculousness of this situation, but the immediate public school bashing tossed all thoughts of that out the window.
You defeat your purpose with the constant bashing, since the vast majority of it is irrational.
Personally, I consider government owned and run socialist-entitlement schooling to be evil. I ask Freepers the following questions, then decide.
Are all government socialist-entitlement K-12 schools godless in their worldview? Do students who sit in godless classrooms learn to think and reason godlessly? If they are to cooperate in the classroom how could it be otherwise?
Are taxpayers forced to subsidized the establishment of atheistic godless secular humanism preached by the government socialist-entitlement K-12 schools? How can this be compatible with the First Amendment?
Are all children whose parents can not ransom them from the godless government socialist-entitlement schools forced to attend? What happens if they or their parents refuse to attend these godless schools?
Are all government owned and run K-12 schools a socialist-entitlement?
Merely by attending do children risk learning that the voting mob that gives them tuition-free schools can be persuaded to give them **lots** of free stuff?
Once in the godless government K-12 schools is every First Amendment Right trashed? ( Speech, press, free assembly, and expression of religion) Does this in any way resemble the way prisoners are treated?
Do government owned and run K-12 schools generally look like minimum security prisons? Is there a risk that the students ( who are treated like prisoners by government functionaries) will learn to be comfortable prisoners of the state?
I think the point is that everybody with children in school would be FAR better off if we had absolute school choice. If the liberals want their young boys to be raised as pansies...let them....give everybody else the ability to opt out.
If you do a keyword search on this site for "zero tolerance," you will come up with hundreds of hits describing incidents in all parts of the country and in every type of community--urban slums, silk-stocking suburbs, rural towns, red states and blue states. Perhaps the frequency of "zero tolerance" outrages is exaggerated, but they occur far too often.
Actually its you that are WRONG.. The Unions including the Police and Fighters not only the Teachers are complicit with Obama..
A brief look at Wisconsin may show you the truth.. IF your not a Romney-bot..
