This was a public school.

We are ignorant if we do not try to teach our soon-to-be adults about what they will face and need to understand (good and questionable) in the world as they enter it on their own.

We cannot educate if we hide our heads in the sand and do not fully equipt our youth with knowledge.

We are NOT talking about grade-schoolers here. These are high schoolers who deal with issues like drugs, sex, road rage, going to war and being on their own in just a few short months (if not already). I am sad to think that of all the issues facing our society trying to educate our young adults about rap music in an intelligent, informed manner is the thing that upsets parents the most - OMGosh, get a life. This is cancer awareness month - where is the outrage about childhood cancer and the disease our kids face ?

Potty Language ? Really ?
Get your heads out of the sand and deal with reality by looking at all dangers - eyes wide open. Have intelligent dialog and DO NOT keep treating our high-school young adults like children!
