The reasons why are off topic here. But if that's the way you feel and you don't step up as a parent and help supplement that lack of education in
the comforts of your own home, quit complaining about the whole thing because at the end of the day, it all comes down to you. The parent. So to
answer you question of "Who Controls Our Children" The answer is we do. The parents.
Yes, I see that you missed the point of the information included in the op. The point was to alert parents that they are being lied to. When they see
a grade on the report card it is not a reflection of how well they are learning to read, write or even figure things out. It reflects how well they
have accepted the values, attitudes and beliefs they are taught. The parents are not told this. The parents are purposely mislead.
I agree it is ultimately the parents responsibility for the upbringing of their child, no doubt. But, parent do not expect that their own local
institution might be misleading them. Also, parents do not expect the school system to undermine their authority and family values. Yet, that is
exactly the intent.
So, this is not a thread to take away any responsibility from the parent but to alert them to pay better attention and not just assume but, make sure
they know what is going on in the classroom that occupies most of their child's day, to beware of deception.
I see no other recourse but to pull the children out of the schools. Parents must decide if their children are getting what they need to prepare them
for the real world. I would suspect most parents aim towards generally the same goals I had...to teach them sound ethics like integrity in all they
do, sound work ethics, the basic tools of reading, writing, math, history, science and a clear understanding of our system of government and why our
country was the beacon of hope for the rest of the world.
Will they be self sufficient and an asset to society as a whole? It is the parents job to see that their children are ready when they are adults but,
they need to know times have changed and they must be more careful as to who they trust to assist in these things.
Thanks so much for your contribution, and emphasizing a very important point.
