Apparently there’s something new in the curriculum of the Prince William County School System of which I was previously unaware:
[George Bush] is openly Christian and ties his religion too much to his politics. The USA is about equal representation and diversity. We need to work VERY hard on making people other religions feel like they are welcome in our culture. 9/11 and the backlash by anti-western fundamentalists is proof of this. Occupying another nation is NOT the best way to do this.
This little gem of political commentary is courtesy of the blog “llbbl.com”, where a printout of a post entitled “10 reasons why George Bush is a bad president” was given to students by a Social Studies teacher at Rippon Middle School yesterday. Despite vast opportunities to engage students with the wealth of responsible political commentary that is available, this teacher dumpster-dove into this intellectual cesspool which offers “[George Bush] vacations alot (sic), which means he is lazy. He expects other people to the job for him. He always looks to blame other people for his mistakes.”
I have to wonder just what standard of learning this diatribe of leftist demagoguery is supposed to promote. What I don’t have to wonder about is the reaction of some of the parents of these children, who are absolutely outraged that this is happening. Here’s one parent’s reaction:
I did not care what the assignment was or even if there was one, this is not the kind of information I want my hard earned tax dollars to pay for. I do not care about this teachers mis-guided, untrue, socialistic views and he should not be teaching them. If this is the kind of education Prince William County schools are delivering, its either time to leave Prince William or put people in office who actually will do something and get the conservative base in this county to get off their Butts.
A spanish teacher in Manassas City was indoctrinating her students in leftist ideology instead of teaching earlier this year, and resigned under pressure. The PWCPS website links to some of the weirdest liberal propaganda one could imagine. Now teachers in Woodbridge are sending students home with printouts that say things like this:
[George Bush’s] enviromental (sic) policy sucks. He thinks drilling in Alaska Artic (sic) preserve is ok. He thinks less restrictions on pollution is ok. He has made no effort to address the Kyoto treaty.
No wonder parents in Virginia home school at a higher rate than many other states. Is the Board of Education listening here? Hello?
