Science education is unit-study centered, with hands-on opportunities to ensure students understand the scientific method and build foundational knowledge in both Life and Earth Sciences, as well as Engineering. Annual Science Fair Projects enable students to develop in-depth studies.

I guess you don't understand how to read or interpret the polls.

You're wrong. They overwhelmingly support gay marriage. I'm not talking about 5 year olds. I'm talking about 20-30 year olds.

Today's 5 year olds will be even more supportive by the time they are in their 20's and 30's, especially since we will have had legal gay marriage for some time by then.

1. No, it would be better if we all just got along with each other.
2. Teaching elementary school kids about gay relationships isn't the way.
3. Nothing has worked so far. I'm not a social engineer. I can tell you that I've seen many black people of all ages walk in predominately white areas, shopping areas, other public areas like parks, etc. and never be bothered. I can't say that about white people walking in predominately black areas. It's usually the young people that cause the problems.

1. Facts can be presented in a variety of ways, they can also be selective. Either side could present them in a way that favors their side.
3. That school is a very Catholic private school. They teach earth and life science, just like public schools.

There's that word 'support' again. More accurately, they don't care what you do, including marriage. Take a poll on gay subject matter in elementary schools, let me know how that turns out.

They still won't care one way or the other.

Not really. Both involve morons attempting to withhold equal protection of the law for no rational reason.

Admitting the existence of homosexuality is a fact. Can you prove knowing that reality is damaging? Because I can prove ignorance of it can lead to bullying, which you supposedly oppose.

Wondering, you are bigoted, you are ignorant, and you are unintelligent.

I'm sorry, did you think you were making a point?

Are you saying you can't find a private school to brainwash your kids the way you want them brainwashed?

This is for stupid, because I know he will never go look it up himself. It includes the words "support" and "favor" rather than "indifference." Freaking moron. This is from December of 2012 in case you can't read that part.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/08/us/justices...

"A strong majority of younger Americans now support same-sex marriage. In a Gallup Poll conducted last month, 73 percent of people between 18 and 29 years old said they favored it, while only 39 percent of people older than 65 did."

If you can't produce the questions on the poll your post is meaningless. If I were asked if gays should have equal rights I would say yes. Problem, you already do have equal rights in my opinion.

Yet, they cannot legally marry (in many jurisdictions), and so (in many jurisdictions) they do not have equal protection of the law, in accordance with the US Constitution.

Part of your problem is that you aren't too bright, and can't grasp basic concepts.
