I could understand if this kind of thing was happening in private schools where parents and children have a choice on whether to attend or not, but in public schools funded by the state and government? How has this been allowed to happen? Have they not heard of separation of church and state?
This is indoctrination at its finest, where children are rewarded for professing Jesus is Lord and punished for thinking any differently. They even have questions on tests where the children are punished if they don't answer with Christian dogma in mind!
What do you guys think about this? Should this be allowed? If so, why? Isn't forcing certain beliefs on people, much less children, a form of oppression and/or indoctrination?
Hmmm, this is what school vouchers are for. Then, schools could be what they are to be, and parents could find the ones that suit them.
Personally, I would rather my son be sent here than to most of the other places out there today, and in fact, my husband and I are scraping our budget to figure out how to send our son to a private, Christian school because there are no public schools that will accommodate faith in any way, thanks to your secular vision.
So our actual education bill will be whatever we wind up spending on a private education + whatever we are forced to pay in property taxes toward schools we will not use because they do not accommodate our beliefs in any way. How is that fair?edit on 26-1-2014 by ketsuko because: (no reason given)
It's well known that the real bedrock of the "progressive" movement and it's incremental agenda is the U.S. education system. The education/indoctrination process is where the "new breed " is developed.
They Instill a Moral and Ethical Sense in their Young Growing Minds that will suit them well heading into Adult Life . Those who do not realize that are not very Astute .
With all due respect, no. Religion does not cause 'morals and ethics.'
It causes division, hatred, bigotry, and strife.

If religion is such a moral compass then why does it inspire so much killing?
