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.
This particular day didnt have anything to do with sex. It had everything to do with tolerance and kindness and trying to eradicate from our building the idea that its okay to be mean to each other, he said.
What a LIAR!
That kind of information has NOTHING to do with tolerance and kindness and EVERYTHING to do with corrupting the vulnerable, impressionable minds of young teens. They could live, grow old and die and NEVER NEED to know that kind of information.
The damage is done.
For all those people who claim it never would or could happen in their school, well it happened to SOMEONE's kids. You have no way of knowing yours won't be next until it's too late.
And in light of the election, GET YOUR KIDS OUT NOW. We're not on a slippery slope anymore, we stepped off the cliff.
1) We moved to a red county and it isn't going to happen in there child's school.
2) This isn't happening in our child's school. I know Mrs. Honey Bun. She teaches 5th grade. She is our church's choir director. My child's school can't be bad because Mrs. Honey Bun teaches there.
3) Get involved. Fix it. Run for school board. Join the PTA. Talk to the teachers. Organize the parents to meet with the principal. ...etc.
4) My child was offered a half-million dollars in scholarships. He/she was class valedictorian. Some schools aren't bad.
