Problem with Political Public Schools..

Posted: July 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

Civil Rights Movement, Affirmative Action, Hate Crimes, Discrimination laws, Acceptance, Discrimination…

They say they want people to be color blind, they say they want people to come together.. but with all these laws, bills, rules, policies.. they create more division.. and the great divide continues:

CA lawmakers pass bill to teach Gay History.

California already requires public schools to teach the contributions made to society by women and by racial and ethnic groups that were historically discriminated against, such as blacks, Latinos and Native Americans.

Now think about the fact that public schools are failing horribly (largely “thanks” to unions).. but with all the special group focus in schools, surely can not be an improvement on the completely and utter lack of educational standards.. and the basics that kids are seriously lacking.

The group, which supported the bill, said no other state has passed similar legislation requiring the teaching of gay and lesbian contributions to society.

The rest of the US, the non-failing (so tragically anyhow) states of America, can be proud they are not allowing for focus on special groups. Hopefully this CA disease does not ooze into the rest of our country (which so often happens with things the twisted state of CA tends to push).

Thankfully CA can not create the textbooks for this twisted gay-focused education, due to their current financial issues.

Note: I am not condemning gays, I am condemning the pathetic excuse for an education system that our country is suffering with. And why are we suffering? Largely because of lowered standards and the unions. Along with lowering the standards there is additional “educational” focus on political agendas. How is that benefiting kids?

    Since when has history become more about who you slept with and less about great events and men? Or more about the color of your skin or what sexual organs you possess than of the aforementioned great events, etc.?

    Really. Only 25% of the US population was able to give 1776 as the year of the Dec of Independence and the only 25% (probably the same people) could state that we declared indep from the British. Yet, soon they will all know about Harvey Milk….

    In MD, graduates now need to be “environmentally literate” – well how about real literacy? Or schools are failing to educate our students. They are failing to train the kids for jobs in the real world. Youth unemployment is at all time highs (nearly 50% for black young men) – and we are going to waste valuable class time and resources on “Gay History”?

    Let the parents do the parenting. Schools should be focused on providing a useful education that will enable students to get real jobs (and not just jobs as “diversity officers”).

    On a “completely unrelated note”, today it was published that the Ed Sec. is advising elementary schools on how to form gay clubs….

    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/ed-secretary-promoting-gay-clubs-all-us

    “Education Secretary Arne Duncan issued a “Dear Colleagues” letter on June 14 advising federally funded schools about establishing clubs on campuses, specifically Gay-Straight Alliance clubs for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

    “The letter was issued from the department’s Office of Civil Rights for elementary and secondary schools and was sent to all school districts in the United States,…”

    Sometimes, I think that their solution for the “population bomb” is to make everyone happy and gay….

    (PS – due to the overreaching of the fed gov, basically all public schools receive fed funding, so yes, gay clubs will come to all public schools.)

      Katie.. exactly.. history should not be tabloid based education.. and that is what they are doing. It is interesting while there are groups wanting people to be gender neutral & colorblind.. sure is interesting schools focus on black history and now gay history. How about HISTORY!

      And another neat idea would be English, not as a 2nd language, and not as slag or text-speak.. I went to school in MD, a kid I graduated with could not spell the word “though” that still sticks in my mind.. and that was not his biggest problem, but he graduated.. that for me is proof of the lowered standards. Now they are adding eco-freak focus, gay studies.. and other crap, that will only further push the focus of education right out the door. Love the priorities eh? But then again the gov’t supports unions, and the public schools are bedfellows with unions.

      Citing a portion of the link Katie shared: “The general rule, approved by the U.S. Supreme Court, is that a public high school that allows at least one noncurricular student group to meet on school grounds during noninstructional time (e.g., lunch, recess, or before or after school) may not deny similar access to other noncurricular student groups, regardless of the religious, political, philosophical, or other subject matters that the groups address,” the letter said.”

      So the gay clubs are ok, they figure that will fix bully issues.. hum, seems like it just might make finding targets easier. But alas, per the rules of clubs.. they should also be allowing a Nazi group, KKK, religious groups (now that is where people have a MAJOR fit) but the rules say.. “regardless of RELIGIOUS matters”… so where do they draw the line? they can’t per their rules, right?
