Have you read the story on Drudge about the 4th grade teacher in Norfolk, VA who set up a mock slave auction in her classroom? The story is copyrighted so I can’t post it here but you can find it at The Virginian-Pilot via Drudge.
This goofy liberal teacher separated her black and mixed race students and offered them for sale to her white students as a classroom lesson in — I’m not sure what. To teach 9 year olds mmmm I can’t really come up with a reason she would do something so stupid, so out of line, so really inappropriate, all in the name of being “well meaning” or “in everyone’s best interest” or “for the good of the children.”
To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, the statist restrict other people’s liberty and peace with a clear conscious because they are doing it for the greater good of those people who just really don’t know what IS good for them. They really see nothing wrong with these behaviors because they are doing what they believe is best for all of us. Never mind that most of us would just like to be left the hell alone.
The Virginian-Pilot goes on to report that last year a guidance counselor resigned her job after giving out 80-100 fetus figurines to elementary students; another left after parents complained that she had anointed a student with “holy oil”; while a third (high school teacher) was reprimanded after it came to light that he/she was teaching from anarchist materials and organizations that were pro-marijuana legalization.
Our tax dollars at work, boys and girls.
Where do you find a fetus figurine? Let alone 100 of them? And more importantly, how is that possibly age approriate for an elementary age child? And whether this counselor was pro-life or pro-abortion, matters not because it simply has no place in elementary school.
I just cannot imagine what these teachers are thinking. I’ll say this, though, they are good promotion for home schooling.
If you haven’t read this story yet, it’s a kill. Due to low enrollment, a NJ elementary school named after TheOne will be closing it’s doors this summer.
At the time that the school acquired its new name, [in 2010] administrators took a lot of flak for ostensibly focusing on the name change instead of the plight of its students. But the city resident behind the movement, Myra Campbell, believed it would “send a subliminal message” to the students.
A subliminal message? How about they send a clear message about, oh say, LEARNING? Hello… anybody in there? How about we teach these kids how to read, write and do simple math, in real easy to understand language?
Subliminal messaging is part of any indoctrination process, by the way.
I have an even better idea. How about we dismantle the Department of Education this year and let the parents and citizens of a given district determine their OWN needs and requirements and finance it themselves? One thing that will be made evident in that scenario is how important the education of their children really is. Why should I be made responsible for the education of kids whose parents don’t give a damn themselves? I’m more than happy to pay taxes for the education of kids in my district, where parents and even I, have a say in what they do, read and learn. But I really don’t like paying for failing schools and teachers in Phoenix or L.A. or Chicago and where the unions and federal bureaucrats control the indoctrination and not the education of our kids.
Last week, TheOne turned a visit and reading at a Virginia elementary school into his own book promotion tour. Instead of reading the traditional Twas the Night Before Christmas as was originally planned, he decided to read from his new book, Of Thee I Sing.
As the article puts forth, when did he find time to write this book?
Imagine the outrage if this school had taken these children to the cathedral in Boston and the Catholic priest did anything like this. What would the liberals be screaming then? What happened to ‘separation of church and state’ in this case?
I don’t know why it’s taken over 4 months for this incident to surface.
