So you still think public school is where your children ought to go—if not to get an education, then at least to get “socialized”?
Consider this little news item, “Teacher Faces Ax Over Naked Kids ‘Having Sex’.”
The “kids” in question were five-year-olds, in kindergarten at Mullica Township elementary school in southern New Jersey. The teacher, who’d been teaching for 15 years, looked into the in-class bathroom and found the boy and girl naked. They told her they were “having sex,” according to the police report. She immediately notified the school principal.
Although no criminal charges were filed, the teacher has been suspended (with pay, of course) for not keeping a closer eye on the kids, and may be fired.
I have not mentioned her name because something about this whole business keeps whispering the word “scapegoat.” She may be guilty of nothing worse than letting her attention wander for a moment.
But someone, somewhere, sure is guilty.
Where do a couple of five-year-olds get the idea of “having sex”? There are only two likely sources—from our debauched popular culture, or from their public school’s “sex education” program.
Parents can turn off the TV, and keep their kids away from certain movies; but they can’t turn off the school. That’s where the kids learn they can make “gender choices.” That’s where they hear stories of a prince “marrying” another prince instead of a princess. That’s where they’re taught out of nasty little books that any conceivable sexual activity is “perfectly normal.” Although “educators” are committed to promoting sodomy above all else, they settle for sexing up kids every which way you can.
How many parents know what goes on in their children’s public school? The sex education curriculum is not something school officials like to advertise; more often, they take steps to keep it hidden from the parents. The public is not invited to sex educators’ conventions: security guards will make sure no outsider gets a peek or a whisper.
Nevertheless, the truth does get out, sometimes. For an eyewitness account of the goings-on at a sex educators’ convention in New Jersey in 2010, see my report. You won’t believe it; but if you did believe it, then you would have a pretty good idea how five-year-olds might wind up “having sex.”
But of course it’s so much easier not to believe reports like these: because if you did, how would you justify allowing your kids to be “educated” by moral imbeciles?
Have you ever wondered how children got “socialized” before there was universal public education? Did we just have to get by without this sociological necessity for thousands of years, until public schooling came along?
We hear this argument a lot. “Well, the education may be lousy, but we gotta get the kiddies socialized”
What bunk. The great lesson taught by public school is that your age-group peers are the most important people in your life—way more important than your parents, the rest of your family, your church, or your community. Those other kids are the ones doing the “socializing” of your kids. Do you really think they’ll do a better job than you can—not to mention grandparents, uncles, and aunts?
Come to think of it, those two five-year-olds in Mullica were only socializing each other.
Christians are without excuse for providing this shabby “education” to their children. In addition to the joys of sexual intercourse in every possible combination, public education—run by the teachers’ unions—focuses on contempt for Christianity and the Bible, the misdeeds of America, the wonderfulness of socialism, self-esteem, Global Warming, and Kwanzaa. What’s not to like?
It really doesn’t matter how many good and decent people are left in the teaching profession. The decent ones don’t set the policies; they don’t decide what’s being taught. They can’t stop it, and they’ll suffer if they try.
Christian children belong in Christian schools, or else should be homeschooled. They do not belong in public school.
And as an added bonus, everybody—kill public education, and the whole Far Left “transformation” of American will surely die the death.
