To much diversty and politics being injected into the classroom. Get back to the three Rs as it use to be called and students will be better served.
Diverity has nothing to do with sexual desires or the acceptace of homosexuality by others. Acceptance of other races yes but that isn't the way it's taught in school now.A book report on Stevie has two dads or moms isn't what schools should be about. Politics shouldn't be taught to students that have no idea other than what they hear at home being said. They just don't understand the whole picture and it is upsetting to some of them. The case of the teacher in Ashville is a great example of the way politics is being taught in our public schools.
Get back to the old way of teaching and quit pampering the students.They know nothing of values any more or respect for each other or the great nation they live in.It's ME ME not us us any more.

GOD help us when the next two generations take control.
