Public School Priorities in California

Rate this post

The California state Senate voted Thursday on a bill that would require public schools to include open homosexuals in history curriculum.

Democrat Mark Leno sponsored the bill because, in his words, gay teenagers are “being harassed literally to death” in public school. He meant this in the context of depression-induced suicide, which progressives routinely exaggerate among gay teens.
So apparently the only way to stop gay kids from getting teased is for teachers to wedge in information about gay people in history. The bill will give local districts a lot of freedom as to how they go about doing this.
Because, of course, these teachers don’t have anything better to do with their time.
In 2009 the California Department of Education published its most recent account of school performance. It found that in a typical classroom there, some 48 percent of students were not proficient in English and 47 percent were not proficient in math. The statewide dropout average is 20 percent. Students who take the SAT score a dismal 501 on reading comprehension and a lackluster 516 on math.
But don’t worry. Their history teacher will tell them who Claude Raines is, and then all will be well.

Meanwhile, a Christian teen from El Cajon is fighting a lawsuit against his public school right now.  According to that student, teachers forcibly confiscated a Bible he’d brought to school and suspended him for discussing theology with his peers.
No word from Mark Leno if religious kids are being treated “like second class citizens.”
Religious groups have long been skeptical of anti-bullying campaigns from progressives. This is because – like many agendas pushed on the left – bullying laws don’t have a lot to do with bullying.
Making it illegal to bully someone in the traditional sense is pointless and redundant; schools already have uniform policies that punish acts of violence or gross verbal abuse. Progressives want to go beyond this definition and prohibit anything negative said toward homosexual lifestyles.

Religious students would be deemed bullies if they expressed an opinion that homosexuality was not natural. Students would be required to hear classroom instruction about lovable, perfectly normal gay people in history, and would not be allowed to object on religious grounds.
It’s obvious to anyone who pays attention that public schools have long given up the effort to teach math or science, and have simply become indoctrination camps for progressive ideology.

  1. Reason #199 to homeschool.

  2. Literacy? We’re too busy teaching social justice and proper feelings!

  3. Remember God destroyed two cities in the Bible because of these practices. What kind of parents do those homosexual children have? When my son was about 8 years old I sat him down and we had a man to man talk. I warned him about the evil of these practices and I also told him to come to me if any one touched him inappropriately! Then we would take care of it the John Wayne way. “Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered. Let all who hate Him hide before His face”. Amen.

  4. How is it that such as small percentage of the population can cause so much trouble?
