So you’re absolutely, positive sure you want these idiot public schools “educating” your children? You’re really confident you can’t do just as good a job yourself?
Out in California, the Weaverville Elementary School punished an eight-grader with detention for sharing his lunch with another kid ( http://www.krcrtv.com/new/local/student-put-in-detention-for-sharing-school-lunch/28115110 ). The 13-year-old shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn’t like the cheese sandwich slapped on his plate by the school cafeteria staff.
As usual, the brain-deads running the show took refuge in the “we have a policy” mantra, yatta-yatta. You never have to think about anything, if you have a policy.
But, see, they have thought about it! You’re not gonna believe me, so read up on what the founders of “public education” have to say for themselves. Check out R.J. Rushdoony’s The Messianic Character of American Education, which is mostly quotes from leading “education” theorists going back 150 years ( available from The Chalcedon Foundation, http://www.chalcedon.edu ). Their goal has always been the same: to turn schools and teachers into “change agents” to re-engineer human society along the socialist lines always proposed by left-wing moral imbeciles.
“Oh! But that happened out in California! They’d never do that in one of our town’s schools!”
Wise up, people. The same teachers’ unions run public education in all 50 states. Being in Texas won’t help you; your kids will get the same rubbish that they’d get in Massachusetts.
School officials in Weaverville say they forbid food-sharing because it might lead to kids dropping dead from allergies, or what have you.
Nah. They want to train the kids to accept without question whatever they are given, whether it’s a cheese sandwich in the cafeteria, or Global Warming and “Barack Hussein Obama, Mm-mm-hmm!” in the classroom.
Please, get your children out of there.
