In short I told them as a person I do not have a right to discriminate, but by the same token they do not have a right to disseminate what I consider to be harmful material to children. I do not have a right to tell them what to choose but they also do not have a right to choose a curriculum for me that I feel is biblically wrong. It's like with prayer, it's not right for me to put my Christian beliefs on anybody, it is right for me to share the Gospel, but even Christ gave us the choice. If we're going to go there then the next thing we know we're going to have everybody forcing things on us in school that we don't believe in from witchcraft to even the molestation from children.

 Wow, that's chock full of hypocritical derp.

If your religion prevents you from doing very basic functions of your job, you picked the wrong career field. GTFO before the butthurt overflows, and get started on something you can theoretically do correctly.

Yes, they do.  They have a right to propagate any curriculum they like.  Including evolution, civil rights, and even the parts of history you don't like.  If you don't like that, get a job teaching at one of the numerous private Baptist/Fundie schools in the area.

Oh - what's that?  They don't pay as well as the Public Schools?  Well, Ye Of Little Faith, you should be counting on your god to provide.

Thomas also spoke about his anti-gay activism to Linda Harvey, a harsh critic of the NEA, over the weekend and this time said that gay-inclusive curriculum will let people force "things on us in school that we don't believe in from witchcraft to even the molestation from children."

Whether you're a cabbie who won't transport people carrying alcohol, a hotel clerk who won't rent to an unmarried couple, a pharmacist who won't dispense prescribed medications to a patient, a teacher who won't teach evolution - GTFO. Make room for someone who can do the job well, and go work for someone who doesn't care if you do a piss-poor job.

The way that URL ends made me think it was pointing to a ".dp" file. As if it were a new server-side language, like ".php" except for "derp".

If such a right-wing web language is ever invented, I hope they expand the extension to ".derp". It could provide an excellent method for distinguishing far-right pages just by looking at the link target! Imagine how many of us would be spared.

Yes!, and while we're at it we should allow states to create and regulate their own currency as well. TO me what was really lacking was a system that kept things from leaving the state. Whether that be people, ideas, business, or money. I mean really why would there need to be some sort of National Standard out there? I'm pretty sure the local level has totally got everything covered, I mean they hired Ira Thomas, right?

I live in SC and hearing this kind of rhetoric isn't terribly uncommon sadly, but there is a lot of info missing from the article that I would be curious to know. i.e. where does he teach, what subjects, what grade levels ect. What saddens me the most when I hear this kind of thing from teachers is that because they are small minded and cannot think/learn past certain barriers they will project that onto an entire generation of children.

SkinnyHead: HotWingConspiracy: SkinnyHead: I do not have a right to tell them what to choose but they also do not have a right to choose a curriculum for me that I feel is biblically wrong.

National labor unions shouldn't be deciding what gets taught in local public schools anyways.  People in their local communities and local school boards should get to decide that.

Why?

Because the local taxpayers are paying for it and because their children are attending those schools.


The problem with local boards setting curriculum is that they're local. So when a kid moves, their education is all farked up. Even worse for kids that move frequently, such as military brats.

And really, does what we teach in fourth grade math really need to reflect the local community?  Before high school, it's pretty ridiculous to think that curriculum can't be standardized.

If your local community has some extra stuff about, oh, farm animals, that needs to be taught in health class, then add that in. But the baseline can and should be set nationwide. When a kid arrives in a new place ready to start the sixth grade, the teachers should be able to rely on the little snowflake having completed certain benchmarks in the basics.

FTFA: It's like with prayer, it's not right for me to put my Christian beliefs on anybody, it is right for me to share the Gospel, but even Christ gave us the choice. If we're going to go there then the next thing we know we're going to have everybody forcing things on us in school that we don't believe in from witchcraft to even the molestation from children.

Tell ya what, buddy. You're free to tell the kids in your class everything that Jesus himself had to say about homosexuality. You can even include direct quotes!

Sorry, dude.  Looks like if you want your children to be discriminatory homophobes, you're gonna have to teach them that at home.  And in church, of course.

Why?

If Muslim communities want their schools to enforce and teach Sharia, it's their right as SkinnyHead would agree.


I think that if a local school wants to teach that girls should learn to make sammiches and shut their mouths when men are talking, that should be allowed.

I kind of see your point on this one; however, some funding for schools does come from the Federal Government, and it is in the best interests of the government o see that EVERY child is educated in real science, math, and reading, and that public schools using public money do not teach things that are demonstrably false and harmful to the child (abstinence only sex education, for example.)

But other than that, I feel a student should have some classes geared more to his or her geographical location; state history is a Good Thing to teach a student that you want to be successful and remain a resident. Furthermore, sports with a regional appeal such as hockey or golf, and various music programs such as jazz, orchestra, or classical create a more diverse culture which is great for the country as a whole.

So yes, Skinnyhead, I agree that we should give a good bit of leeway to state and local schoolboards in curriculum decisions, but not to the point they are doing real harm to the students by teaching religion instead of science, or "abstinence only" sex education, or that gay people should be treated differently than straight people..

So you propose that educational institutions do not teach what is empirically valid, as determined by rigorous examination by recognized professionals in the field of (insert school class here: geometry, history, biology, health, etc.), but it should be put up to a localized popular vote by insular populations that are often not filled with the requisite qualifications to render a sound judgement on any particular issue such that from one county to the next there are different curricula for what is and is not taught. Why do you hate education so much that you would encourage educational curricula to be turned into popularity contests? Why not just, you know, let education standards for a topic be decided by experts in the relevant field and be taught by those who voluntarily chose to enter the teaching profession?

As an analogy, does absolutely every decision that gets decided around your place of employment get made as the result of a popular vote that everyone who works there gets an equal say in? Or are some things simply dictated by supervisors, managers, CEOs, department heads, the Board of Directors, name partners, etc. to be carried out by a set of subordinates who chose to fill that position?

Good thing that's exactly how it works, then. Except in Texas of course, where the principled conservatives on the state board establish the curriculum for all schools in the state, whether they like it or not. In any event, the unions have exactly fark all to say about the curriculum.

Hell, our school district actually allows individual schools to establish their own curricula, provided that the PTA pays for the materials and the necessary professional development.

Yeah, that jumped out at me, too. I bet he gets molested by kids all the time. It's not his fault; it's the kid's fault.

What a short memory you have.  It wasn't long ago that abstinence-only propaganda was forced onto schools by the federal government under the very system you are proposing.

We should fight the creationists with the courts, rather than potentially give them a weapon that can be turned on us by a future administration.

There is no statewide curricula - they're adopted by the school districts. In the case of my son's math curriculum, the school's selection replaced the district approved curriculum. It cost the PTA about three grand a year.

Actually, if you read Texas' state curriculum (especially on biology), it's very reasonable, and is easily implemented (as this primer for teaching biological evolution to Texas 9th graders shows).  The problem, of course, is the implementation of said curriculum is impeded by the Jeebus types that insist they "teach the controversy". Okay, I can teach every meaningful implementation of Intelligent Design and/or creationism.  I can do that in one class period. In fact, I can do it in one sentence. And even better, one word.

/I'll leave you the guess as to what word that is.
//Hint: It's what the proponents of Intelligent Design think atheists believe in.

ikanreed: But right wingers  just want to "protect marriage" and in no way are tremendous bigots who deserve to be shot.


Funny because I have a shiatty heterosexual marriage, but I'd never blame anyone else's marriage for my shiatty one. I'm also pretty sure my shiatty marriage isn't affecting my neighbors' marriages and they live right next door.

What ever happened to personal responsibility? I guess it's easier to blame "the gays" which are probably no more than 10% of the population for all the ills of the world.

Yeah, that makes sense.
