If you think you could outwit a gorilla, you need to challenge one.
Fence in a couple of wooded acres for a week or so, insert gorilla, insert you, and let the best man, and mans daddy win.
The word outwit will have a whole new meaning to you.
This is how you counter creationism ? Laughable.
Are you kidding? Put Vladdy in a caged area with a gorilla and Valddy will become Mrs. Gorilla in a heartbeat and be thrilled to do it. I think you just described old gay Vladdy idea of heaven, Mrs. Gorilla.

Well even the article which I reread says the parents have recourse to substitution if they find material their KIDS.
BANNING a book means taking it off the shelves. Being upset that YOUR CHILD for whom you are responsible is REQUIRED to read something is not BANNING. Now the parents wanted to change things for the whole school..That is a bit closer but still not BANNING. Pesky old language. SERIOUSLY though..even if it was not required required but recommended the kids could go to the library and get it. Not banned
This goes for any booK especially with ideas some people might not like. DON'T take them away but let parents have a say for their own kids..that is their JOB. obviously there are requirements like Math and science and languages..and the schools can certainly make them read books..but let parents decide in subjects they have an interest in.
Maybe it is because we have so many parents that leave the child rearing to the schools that responsibility has been abdicated. BUT I don't want the STATE to have the final say about everything. BUT THAT ALSO only means for MY OWN KIDS.
This whole choice thing is about choice..freedom. but a mother has or should have freedom to take her responsibility seriously AS REGARDS HER CHILDREN. ON ANY SUBJECT. IMO
There's no need to shout, Rose.

I agree that parents should take their parental responsibility seriously - I always considered it my responsibility to make sure my children read all the books assigned to them, and to discuss what they were reading with both them and their teachers. If there were any portions of assigned books with which I disagreed, we discussed that too...but I NEVER forbade them to read ANYTHING.

Terri had a heartbeat, but not much more. She breathed in and out. But not much more.
You tell me why it was kind to keep her alive while blind (the optical area of her brain liquefied), while in a state of not dead, but not living. With no awareness of herself or those around her.
Regardless of the lies (or wishful thinking) her parents told, people who actually spent time with Terri knew she was not aware anyone was there. Those tapes her parents made and sold for donations were bits and pieces of over 4 hours. Mere minutes here and there meant to mislead (or portray their wishful thinking).
Elvis died of a drug overdose and very poor health do to over eating and no exercise. No one dies of constipation unless your bowels burst. Elvis was in horrid shape he always ate and sat around , like several of you pro aborts do.

Ok here's something really controversial. Which has huge support among the masses of parents..Vouchers
The teachers in the public schools are so overwhelmed by class size and the need to build more schools.
An example..supposedly each child here costs the government over 7500 per year and probably more.
If they gave a 5000 voucher IF THE PARENTS OPTED.. the state would save money. The class sizes would go down. Would need less school building.
The kids could go to whatever school they could afford free private..no vouchers..charter..no voucher..private they probably would pay something besides the voucher but with mire students probably more private or religious schools.(AND THIS IS not the state making a state religion..)
Then those with a problem with books would have a choice..the undereducated would have a choice..Washington DC parents have repeatedly supported vouchers . In other inner cities the same.
This would actually solve the main problem of overcrowding..dearth of school buildings..choice for parents.
But as with most common sense solutions..no one has the political will to try it..says it takes money away..But it saves the state's building and per student expenses. And the competition would most likely be good.
The public schools could probably offer some more choices in curriculum than the private. So I am sure they would remain the top choice..but still it's an idea
As we have here..the state's still have requirements. They all have to take their tests..etc
Ok don't all answer at once. Rotf
Five thousand wouldn't pay for half of the tuition for a Catholic or other private school.

Well,that would be all of them. Just stop abortions and teach your children how to love themselves so they won't give in to temptations. This worked for thousands of years for the majority of people.

Really just use caps for emphasis on words. They kind of all look so small..anyway not trying to be rude.
The thing is..not all parents are,as open as you are on some subjects.maybe it's a preference thing..maybe it's a religious thing..maybe they are very private about sexual matters.

Now if they objected to history books as in say holocaust deniers or don't want slavery discussed ..as in the official history of the US or WW 2. That is,a subject that I assume is required

Beatific am an animal activist and don't want my kid reading Moby Duck...there should be on the reading list other outside reading they can substitute..

As I said they should not have a say over the whole list but the school
Should be sensitive and give choices..imo

This school board seems to have ruled that they had alternatives in place..As they should IMO.

I discussed with my own daughter at age 4 where babies come from because she asked. As she got older she knew more.

about other things we discussed what she asked about.

She went to a Christian school. I worked multiple jobs to make it so. She got a great education

That's what I said. and maybe with more students they could charge less.
And I pulled that number from the air.
But for many parents they could come up with partial tuition if not all of it. I never did any more than work for a doc or hospital. But education was important..a priority. And for most of that time I got no child support either. I managed.
Most of my education was on the job or I took classes only own mostly.

Main reason why I determined she would go farther than I had. SHE DID. Thank God.
I not only paid tuition homeschool taxes for the public school as well.
There are no tax benefits..nothing. no real tax credits like now

You do what you can if you need to.

And many poor working class people sacrifice already. Why not give them some relief.

It was rather ridiculous of me to chastise you for the all-caps, and then turn right 'round to do the same in my own post. I apologize, for being a dork, Rose.

Concerning your daughter's education, I'm sure she got a fine one... her knowing you were deeply involved with that education is a very positive thing, and I'm sure it contributed greatly to her success.

As far as censoring their reading materials is concerned, I agree with you: parents have the right to keep our children as ignorant of the views of others as we care to...I've just declined to exercise that one.

The cruelty depicted in 'Moby Dick' might actually do much to reinforce your views against cruelty, for your daughter. In any event,'Moby Dick' is in every library in the Nation. You do know she will be free to read it on her own initiative, if she ever feels the need, once she's of age, right?

(We can't control their reading choices forever....)

Lol I saw the caps and smiled. I know all caps is shouting..you should see my emails . I underline and make big letters..Lol

I hated Moby Duck. We had to read it in public school in High School
They didn't have a list of choices. That and we studied Beowulf.
Both boring as all get out.

as a kid I read all the superhero comic books. Tame compared to today.
Daughter liked these teen romances. Not Charleston..Not racy..Had my fried order the newest and I got them for her as I or she could afford

She is a great reader. And my bookstore friend said to me..you show me a kid who reads a lot..they do well in life. He andcwifexwere like family. And I worked there on Says. Extra job

She,was an A student..used to browse with me since she was little.
Never actually had to stop her as her books were ok by my standards.

And lol yes she reads anything she wants to. We used to share Nora Roberts..Mary Higgins Clark and still do a bit.we both have kindled.

Oldest grandson. Great reader too. Next one doesn't like to read.

All different but those kids won't get books or any toys parents don't approve of..Parents responsibility and we should have more of it.

As a teacher, especially of small children, if a child doesn't like, to read it saddens me a little... but as long as they can read well anyway, they'll be fine.

Yeah. Each is different. I lived in my comics. Then Nancy Drew and nurse books. Readers digest condensed books everything . Grandson is the same at very young age. They learn a lot more younger. Reads,real books even in first grade. lol

I think if a kid learns to love reading they are nevercreallyvbored. Of course he has his video games too. And good at them. Just have to really work on the your brother is your Barclaycard concept. But 3 years difference..oh well all good kids. All we can ask for!!
