A federal judge has found a Montgomery County (Maryland) school board’s new 10th grade s-x education curriculum in violation of the First Amendment freedom of worship protection. The curriculum taught that “homo[s-x]uality is a natural and morally correct lifestyle,” and excluded other perspectives on what is morally correct. The question asked by this columnist is a good one: “do we like where [s-x education is] going, and, if not, how do we get off?” Public schools have usurped teaching that properly belongs to the family and the church, and in so doing have twisted that teaching beyond any resemblance to truth.
P.S. Yes, I know how to spell ‘s-x.’ I do not want to get spammed, though, thus the intentional replacement of key letters.
how do we get off what?
Sometimes I wonder how much I should really care where S.Ed. is going in the public school because we homeschool. Probably a very self centered view.
3FoldCord, the question she was asking was how do we as a nation get off the path that s-x education in the public schools is taking us. One reason I believe it is relevant for homeschoolers is that we live in a society where 90% (just guessing at that figure) of the people around us went through the public school system. That 90% helps shape the society we and our children must live in, and people who were shaped by what was taught to them in the public schools interact with our children daily (especially when they are older).
Another reason it is relevant: the whole problem of s-x education in public schools is one reason why we homeschool. On the CCH website news articles like this were only posted once a month under the Why We Homeschool link … with the blog category "why we homeschool" they can be posted as often as they come up.
