Even when parents WANT to take responsibility for their kids...they can't!!! Who is raising our children now...schools filled with liberal agendas or their own parents? Are we a communist state now?!
This is just another reason why I support vouchers for private schools. Why should only the privelged be presented with the opportunity to get a solid education without indocrtination (and get ahead in life)? Let's face it...competition yeilds positive results (including better schools and education). Vouchers would provided just that...competition among schools to attract more money.
Why should our tax money be dispersed to educate the less fortunate? Because it benefits us all when we provide better opportunities which result in less crime and social problems and more success and motivation. Ecuation solves a lot of problems and it is clearly a great investment for all of us!
Lexington school calls cops on dad irate over gay book
By Laura CrimaldiThursday, April 28, 2005 - Updated: 02:39 AM ESTPolice arrested a Lexington father who refused to leave the Joseph Estabrook School yesterday after school officials rejected his demands that his 6-year-old son be shielded from any discussions about gay households.
David Parker, 42, confronted officials after his son brought home ``Who's in a Family,'' a storybook that includes characters who are gay parents.
Yesterday, Parker refused to leave a meeting after Lexington Superintendent Bill Hurley rejected his demand that he be notified when his son is exposed to any discussion about same-sex households as part of classroom instruction.
``Our parental requests for our own child were flat-out denied,'' Parker said in a statement.
Parker also asked that the boy be pulled from similar discussions that arise spontaneously, said Brian Camenker, director of the Article 8 Alliance, which supports the ouster of four pro-gay marriage judges on the state's Supreme Judicial Court.
School officials could not be reached for comment.
