The My Little Pony Killer: 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.


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.

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.

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


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?

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!

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.

monoski: To be fair libs equate the GOP with farking chickens.


Libs use the metaphor of "f*cking a chicken" for the way that the GOP employs dog whistles, talking points, and obfuscation to justify continuing to fail at its primary missions.  The GOP is not being accused of avian rape.  They are, however, constantly and literally equating homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality... and it even creeps into legislation now and again.

One is a metaphor.  The other is a philosophy.

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.

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.

That's not fair.  We don't literally think they enjoy farking chickens.  That's what's called a "euphemism."
No, "to be fair" us libs equate the GOP with farking male interns and gay dudes in public restrooms with wide stances.  However, we are not basing this purely on our GOPophobia, so much as past history with so many outspoken anti-gay conservatives who seem to trip and fall on gay dicks all so often.

Because in liberal, hippy-dippy, Muslim al-gebra loving states 2 + 2 = 4.

Why would a labor union get to decide what our kids get taught?  Good question.  There should be federal and state agencies tasked to come up with curriculum.  If only.
