DeaH: MindStalker: HotWingConspiracy: 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
From children? Like the children are molesting the adults?

I wouldn't be surprised if this teacher had issues with that in the past if you know what I mean.

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.


Maybe he shouldn't have come to school dressed like that. What did he expect was going to happen?

ox45tallboy: 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.

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..


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.

Local idiots like the idiot in this article? Why should STUPID AS fark be acceptable as long as it's local?

/Well, of course if you don't care about America as a whole, you should let stupid farks in stupid farking towns raise stupid farking kids.

qorkfiend: austerity101: BMulligan: 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.

That's pretty horrifying.

Does it replace the state-level curriculum, or supplement it?


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.

Cafeteria worker speaks out against lunch menu. Refuses to prepare, serve or clean up pork chops on religious grounds. Prays to Allah for strength. Heralded as a hero by Conservatives across the country.

Plausible, right?

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.


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.

Can't we just kick the whole south out of the USA? Seems like they are costing us a lot of money in welfare and healthcare.

Seriously, just kick them out already! Lol

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.

Peter von Nostrand: Peter von Nostrand: 18 comments so far and 18 homophobes. That's the only logical conclusion I can draw since they're all pointing out the teacher's homophobia

Should have refreshed. 21 comments....


If I point out the teacher's rank stupidity, that makes me stupid, then?

No, you have a right to have your beliefs...but when you're in a position of power (e.g. teaching) and attempt to tell students how to think...you're a douchebag.

This goes for BOTH sides.  STFU and stick to teaching the 3 R's please.

It's just hilarious that these people blame everything for their problems...except guns and their own personal recipe of Christianity.
