You Betcha this school district should be promoting the study of the United States Constitution, beginning with it's roots grounded deeply in the teaching philosophy of the founding fathers values systems, upon which our great America the Beautiful was built.<quoted text>
Wanna talk extreme? I am all for the teaching of constitutional history, but is this what the school district should be promoting? Just received an email about this from the schools. On the surface it looks good, but when you dig a little deeper....
Springboro Schools is offering two unique educational opportunities on the US Constitution this summer. Beginning July 9th and continuing for 12 weeks, we invite you to attend the highly acclaimed Constitution Course presented by the Institute On The Constitution. Also, on August 3rd, we invite you to attend the Making of America Seminar sponsored by the National Center For Constitutional Studies.
The National Center for Constitutional Studies, formerly the Freemen Institute, is a conservative, religious-themed constitutionalist organization, founded by Latter-Day Saint political writer Cleon Skousen.
According to the NCCS, the founding of the United States was a divine miracle. As such, the NCCS worldview and program are based on three major pillars:(1) understanding the divine guidance that has allowed the United States to thrive; (2) rejecting the tyrannical and sinful nature of the modern U.S. federal government; and (3) preparing for a divine reckoning that will bring down America's government and possibly tear society as we know it asunder, thus allowing those with sound principles to rebuild the republic.
I thought this BOE was all for openness and wanted discussion of both sides of issues? Yeah right.
A nation is just as strong as its foundational values; and teaching an understanding and appreciation of that foundation is the responsibility of our school district and a privilege of all citizens to attend. God Bless America! And May God Bless all the little children and their Moms and Dads (including sheep and the the board members)!
