It's funny how the Activists have so much control over this country.
DO you remember when those same Activists forced all gym classes to become co-ed ???
It seems to me, these educators are just playing games...

and, what's next ????

I hope they bring back nude swimming for boys. I will go back to teaching PE and supervise the swimming classes, and invigilate in the shower room afterwards. The icing on the cake would be if they brought back bare-bottom spanking for boys.

Iam not a firm believer in single sex education or single sex classes i believe that education should be mixed.There is no need for single sex education what so ever that idea belongs to the Victorian era.

Pedo Bob, you are still at it: you continue to post your demented fantasies of child sexual abuse under our name, and to post them from the jurisdiction in which you are under investgation for the sexual abuse of children. You are truly a self,-destructive individual, and clearly a fool to even suspect that this "disguse" behind which you continue to pretend to hide is fooling anybody.

Boy Lover Bob, do you plan to dress up as Pogo the Clown for Hallowe'en? Only a sick man would introduce this sort of filth to a discussion about education. Only a sick man would think of sex with schoolchildren when the word "education" is mentioned. And you do so obsessively.

That is, incidentally, one heck of an eloquent rebuke. Must be a fan of Churchill's.

And why don't you go after Pedo Bob, who poses as me to invade your thread, Katy, with his boy-molesting filth. My interest is to bring him down, which will have the side effect of ridding these education threads forever of Bob's sick fantasies about sex with children. You rage toward my colleagues and me is misplaced, Dear.

Katie, I'm sorry for the unpleasant exchanges between Bob and me. I don't understand, however, why they seem to have had so dramatic an impact on you... This won't help much--and I risk coming across as smug, which I honestly don't intend--but if Bob comes back here with his sick stuff, I will respond, so please do yourself a favor and skip over it. If he doesn't, you won't see me again. Here's hoping that you won't see me again.

With regard to your first post (the first after Bob revived this four year-old thread yesterday by posing as me to post his smut) I agree completely with what you say about single-sex education. Historically, it had to do with preparing boys and girls for the dramatically different roles they would play in society as adults. That distinction no longer exists. To prepare children to work and to live together--and, indeed, to compete with one another--as equals, it only does them harm to reinforce through segregated schools, classes and activities, throughout their formative years, their identities as men or women as having precedence over their identities as citizens and as individuals to whom the same opportunities are available and the same responsibilities are conferred.
