Ready for another inspiring example of our wonderful public schools at work?
As part of a language arts lesson, kids at a New Jersey elementary school were required to write an essay dealing with a hypothetical situation which begins with the student going to a party and getting drunk or drugged.
“You end up having sex with this person… A week later you find out that you have contracted herpes… and that this is a disease that you will have all your life and never known when an outbreak will occur.”
“Never known?” That’s some language arts, eh?
The lesson is from [trumpet fanfare] Common Core, the federal government’s inept and costly show of micromanaging all the public schools in America.
Aside from being a very poor example of the application of the language arts, whatever they are, this little scenario makes several assumptions. 1) Teens and pre-teens will go to parties where no adult is present, because no parent cares enough to be bothered. 2) The children at these parties will consume drugs and alcohol, and no parents will ever find out and put a stop to it. 3) Once they’re properly liquored up, children will have sex with whoever comes along and probably wind up with a sexually transmitted disease.
At that point they have demonstrated their readiness to be registered as Democrat voters.
Common Core and your child’s public school classroom teacher take those three assumptions for granted–hey, that’s just how it is, being a 13-year-old these days. Every parent ought to know that.
Please do not leave your children in those schools.
It’s not healthy for them.
