In just another one of tens of thousands of isolated incidents from every state in the union, a teacher at Encinal High School, Alameda, CA, is “under investigation” for giving sophomore students an unusual extra credit assignment: snoop around your parents’ drawers and closets, and if you find any condoms or sex toys, display them as trophies in a “selfie.” We have a TV news report with video:
I am sure my folks possessed no sex toys. We lived in a time when the term “sex toy” was virtually unknown.
Parents are pretty mad about this, but the school district is protecting the teacher and refusing to answer questions while the “investigation” is going on.
They haven’t even done the usual thing of suspending the teacher with full pay and benefits. We haven’t been told what subject this pervert was “teaching.”
Complete the following sentence: In spite of overwhelming evidence that public schools are run by perverts, idiots, and ultra-Leftists, I continue to send my children to public school because _______________.
The most convincing answer wins a beanie with a propeller on top.
(Note: We will not accept the answer, “For socialization,” because that only leads to the question, “So why do you want your children socialized by perverts, idiots, and ultra-Leftists?”)
C’mon, anyone, I dare you…try to defend public education. Just try.
