What goes on behind closed classroom doors?
The mayor of Hudson, Ohio, has told the town’s school board members they must either resign or be charged with distributing child pornography–under the guise of educational material (https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/2021/september/ohio-mayor-tells-education-board-members-to-resign-or-lsquo-be-charged-rsquo-over-lsquo-child-pornography-rsquo-in-high-school-class).
“I’ve spoken to the judge,” said Mayor Craig Shubert.
At issue is a book of “writing prompts” called 643 Things to Write About–including, for instance, an instruction to “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom.” I don’t think my parents would have been amused. But that was way back when the public used to have some say about the public schools that they, and no one else, paid for.
The Superintendent of Schools admitted there was “inappropriate material” in the textbook–but, he said, it was never used and “we collected the books.” And, like, sorry about that! He also admitted “We didn’t do due diligence” in selecting course materials.
We mustn’t be so hung up on tyrannical, unconstitutional COVID “mandates” that we lose sight of all the rest of the serious mischief being done to our country. Leftids have set fires in numerous places, all of which have to be put out. When we rush to extinguish a fire in the closet, they start one in the kitchen; and when we run to the kitchen, they start a fire in the garage.
If indeed the board can show that the book of “writing prompts” was taken away before any students had a chance to see it, the defense might have a case.
But in any event, our “educators” must be reined in. They’ve done too much damage already.
