This slipped my attention last week...but anybody who reads here knows that this is the kind of stupidity that boils my blood. This is a letter that was in the Journal Gazette on September 21st of this year. IMAO, this lady's absurd rant exemplifies why our society is so messed up. My commentary is in green.
Public schools teach bad morals
Regarding Kerry Miller’s letter, “Standards needed for home schools” (Sept. 12): It is not that students don’t have curricula, they are simply not required to follow the state’s curricula.
It is not the government’s job to say what my child learns. Well, actually it is. If your child doesn't learn enough of the right stuff to become a productive member of society, they will likely become a ward of the State in one fashion or another...so it really is in the best interest of the general populace to ensure that a uniform level of education is available to all.
The government wants to teach my children that sex outside of marriage is OK as long as you use a condom and that getting an abortion is OK. I'm feeling completely ripped off here! I totally missed the classes in the public school that I attended that had these things in the curriculum. I bet the "Casual Premarital Sex for Adolescents" class would have had a 2 year waiting list. Furthermore, I only remember discussing abortion in three classes: Biology 2 (wherein descriptions of many medical procedures were taught), Current Social Problems and Group Discussion. I wish I'd seen the "Abortion is cool, everybody will like you" lecture series...but maybe it was only offered to people equipped with a uterus? Hell, I don't know. Seems like I would have heard something about it, right?
It wants to allow lobbying groups like the National Education Association to direct curricula, including the mandate to teach a radical homosexual agenda to all students in public schools. The NEA is not a lobbying group, it's a union. It's a union comprised of PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS. Who else would you suggest to set curricula? The steamfitters union? The IBEW? Come the fuck on...
Furthermore, I have searched the NEA's website inside and out, and I still can't find even a paragraph relating to this "radical homosexual agenda." I even went so far as to scour The Bilerico Project, and they don't seem to have a copy of this agenda either. What radical agenda are you talking about? Please email me a copy of the Militant Homosexual Manifesto...I'm definitely curious as to its contents and I'm sure many readers would also like to see it.
The government wants to require all middle school-age girls to have the human hapillomavirus (HPV) vaccine because the government believes all teens will have sex and to teach my children that God doesn’t belong in the Pledge of Allegiance. First off, I am totally with you on the HPV vaccine thingy. Vaccines are troublesome and really serve no purpose. They don't save lives, they don't prevent disease, they just hurt and cost money. I think they are just a ploy to pad the pockets of big pharmaceutical corporations. BLAME PFIZER!!! Second, "God" DOESN'T belong in the Pledge of Allegiance. "Under God" was inserted in The Pledge in 1954 at the request of the Knights of Columbus...who in your eyes are a "lobbying group" I'm sure. Oh....wait...nevermind.
These are “elements of the culture” that my daughter doesn’t need to learn in school. From the sounds of it, she sure as shit isn't going to learn them at home either. I have an idea, why don't you let her learn about this stuff on her own after she leaves the nest...I'm sure she won't be bitter about her parents sheltering her. HA! Haven't you ever heard of the "Preacher's Daughter Syndrome?"
I also don’t believe my daughter needs to learn that it is OK to wear skimpy clothing or listen to offensive music. Once again, classes in which I would have adored having a chance to enroll. Damn. I would have tried to get the Skimpy Clothing for Nubile Hotties class early in the day, so that it would have worked out better with my schedule. It would have sucked to go to that class AFTER my Auto-erotic Manipulation and Technique lab.
The cultural values of decency, modesty and discipline are out the window at most public schools. Evidently, the intellectual values of logic, reason and freedom weren't popular with whatever public school you attended...either that or you just ignored all of that so you could continue to live in whatever bubble you were floating around in.
