How ironic is it when ignorami think teachers are the bad guys?
Ignorami = plural of ignoramus. As in both hula AND you.
Down with unions? Maybe you should take a good long look at the history of the coal industry and who CONTINUES to protect miners' conditions and health. Down with Teacher's unions? Have you ever compared how a teacher's pension stacks up against politicians' or most administrators' retirement plans?
Hula hates the NEA, but you can bet your bottom dollar hula doesn't even know what the NEA actually does... and I KNOW you don't.

It is no secret that American schools are dysfunctional. The report compared New Jersey students to Belgium schools and you contend that indoctrinating children to Christianity would correct this - and yet the countries that are kicking education butt?

You need to read it again, as the whole Bible OT Points towards Christ!
the OT doesnt say anything about christ. it talks about the savior comni back but it says nothing of christ any where. when the savior comes the world is supposed to end so by the OT your christ would be a false prophet. and by the NT your christ would be a false prophet too becuz the system didnt pass b4 the ppl at the sermon all passed away. beware of worshippin false prophets. they will send u to hell for that too u know.

The Bath School disaster is the historical name of the violent attacks perpetrated by Andrew Kehoe on May 18, 1927 in Bath Township, Michigan that killed 38 elementary school children and 6 adults, and injured at least 58 other people. Kehoe first killed his wife, fire-bombed his farm and set off a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School, before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck. It is the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history.

Since the christian cult has a small percent of the population your cult will not be forced on children at my expense.
If all children where told about religion when they where adults there would never be another christian again
Firstly, your prolific writing on this subject is a strong indicator that A) you have WAY too much free time, and, B) "Thou protests too much". If we are to complain about education tax dollars being allocated toward subjects one doesn't agree with, who, but a Bible believing Christians, has more rights to righteous indignation about what his/her tax dollar is being spent on in public schools? The godless left have firmly placed their atheistic agenda into public education; and with it the celebration of gay rights, abortion, and anti-Christianity,(you, Mr Satan, certainly don't own Christian bashing). Your arguments are dronish and predictable, you, sir, are what the left refers to as a, "useful idiot", and what Satan uses up and throws away when you've accomplished his purpose.

What you need to learn is that your rights end where every one elses rights begin. Church people are a small minority, get over it and keep your sick evil religion away from our children!

I'd argue that Satan worshipers without a job would be a much, much, smaller minority.

I do not know any with out jobs. I own my own business and most of the people in my Satanic church are well off.
Hey, if you want your kid to learn the bible teach them the WHOLE bible and send them to a private school.
Otherwise stay away from our children you sick evil freak

I'd argue that it doesn't matter who's minority is smaller.

-There is a separation of church and state.

-Therefor public schools can not teach religious based opinion and must instead teach based on verifiable fact. This does not leave room for religious doctrine.

-Parents should instruct their kids in religion however they see fit, at home or in church. It's just too personal a matter for the government to have a say in.

there are many different ppl that wrote parts of the bible, why do u think it contradicts itself so much. cuz its nto inspired by god, it is a group of ppl that couldnt keep the story straight in their pursuit of power and money and control. what better way to keep the poor from killin the ones with the money and power, put a sky daddy in the pic so that all the poor stay dumb and scared to stand up and say we deserve our share cuz we do the work for the rich to get the money they got. but thanx to god and hell the ppl think they will get teh reward after tehy die therefore becomin the slaves to the rich business owners and such. if it were inspired by god i dont think we would need interpretation and cross referencing and twisted scripture to make it viable for reality and common sense.

You sure told me! I guess that it must be the christian cult that fuels the multibillion dollar porn industry, and the multi billion dollar alcohol industry, and the multi billion dollar strip club industry, and Victoria's secret, and science fiction books, and the multibillion dollar medical industry, wow, you must be right

uh, huh.. I just provided links that pretty much prove that religious devotion has no positive impact on student performance. I am not a bit surprised that nobody noticed.

The christian cult does not deal in facts or the truth. In fact they ignore anything that they did not say, including the bible
