Ok, I know there are some people who still get a bit offended when I talk about government schools, or tax-funded indoctrination centers. You can be honest. You think my outrage at the dramatic downward spiral of student standards, the censorship of even the barest symbols of God and country, the usurpation of parental roles by government officials, the peddling of self-esteem as the only commodity to our tiny epicureans .well, you think Im overstating it.
Our schools wouldnt really be that blatantly schilling for government, would they? They arent really just cheerleaders for Obama, right? Those are just the big-city radicals, right?
Below is an email from one of our listeners, who was dismayed to find his sons little elementary school distributing T-shirts celebrating Barack Obama:
My name is Matt Latcham, and I have a son who is a 4th grader at Wellman Elementary school in Wellman, Iowa. (which, by the way, is an extremely conservative town) It is a part of the Mid-Prairie school district.
On the night of January 10, 2013, I got a call from a parent of a fifth grader asking me if my son had received an Obama t-shirt from school and brought it home. I immediately asked my son if he had received an Obama shirt, and much to my delight his response was Why would I want an OBAMA t-shirt!? He then told me that he did not receive one and knew nothing about them.
In continuing the conversation I learned that the Wellman Elementary fifth graders were given shirts with a picture of the front page of the Cedar .......

There was a story the other day that students from middle school and high school were bussed to hear Angela Davis, 60’s radical/terrorist give a talk.
Crazy stuff comes out of public schools all the time it seems
The suggestion in the article needs to be followed up on. If this school is not going to refuse any free t-shirts that become available to hand out to kids - since handing them out is not an endorsement of anything - then this school needs to be given a LOT of free t-shirts to hand out. With all different viewpoints on those t-shirts, since handing out them is not an endorsement of anything.
Obama shirts are fine, but if a kid showed up at school wearing a George Washington or Ronald Reagan t-shirt, he would be expelled.
Just as long as they don’t give out Bibles.
Where is the outrage from the parents of the kids in this school? We would be raising hell down here in northern georgia and calling for those responsible to resign.
Wonder how many kids used the T-shirts to wipe their butts after using the toilet.
The rest of the article is great, but this part is instructional:
“First thing in the morning on January 11th, I called the principal, Evan Parrott, to express my concern with these shirts being given out in my childs school. Mr. Parrott proceeded to tell me that the school was in no way endorsing anyone by giving out the shirts, and that in fact a note had gone home with each student, and that the 5th grade students were told that they didnt have to take them, but could if they wanted. He also said that they were given the shirts by The Gazette and felt like they couldnt turn down free t-shirts to give away.
My immediate response was to ask him if the school would give away shirts that had Jesus Saves across the front, if they were free to the school. The question was obviously dodged and our conversation ended by him telling me that an e-mail would be sent out to parents explaining the situation. There was no acknowledgement of any wrongdoing, but rather an acknowledgement of miscommunication.”
They are such highly trained leftist shills......that’s
what they get at liberal arts colleges.
Government schools are legalized child abuse.
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.
Newspapers and Government Education are fellow travelers, having the same goal, to destroy all resistance to godless humanism.
Yes, and a Gold star for that reminder. (are gold stars still allowed?)
If those shirts came from public funding, I see a major lawsuit brewing. Not to mention discrimination against kids wanting to wear military type shirts, shirts with flags on them, shirts with team names, etc. etc.......
What the hell has happened to this once great country?
We are becoming more like the chineese every day. Ever see the photos of their brainwashed children?
I don't know.
Grading papers with red pens is frowned upon.
Yea, think about that - they don’t want to hurt the little munchkins feelings when they grade a paper but they don’t mind indoctrinating them to a socialist/marxist ideology that killed over a hundred million in the last century. Go Figure!
Meanwhile students wearing tshirts and bandannas decorated with the American flag are suspended for “racism”.
