When a teacher and assistant principal at a Tennessee school stage a violent gunman attack on a classroom of sixth graders, which left them cowering under their desks, terrified, and begging for their lives, as a "prank," or "learning experience," it is past time to break up the government monopoly in childhood education and allow it to become a truly free market enterprise. The government school in which this not merely hare- brained, but evil, scenario played out will not suffer from the actions of their employees because the children of the community are mandated by law to attend. If something similar happened in a free market school, it would be out of business today, because parents could vote with their wallets and close the thing down.
When a Chicago teacher shows the R- rated film "Brokeback Mountain" to a class of 12- year- olds, complete with the disgusting ‘cowboy’ ‘love’ scenes intact, without notifying parents or requesting parental permission, it is way past time to shut down the government schools. (What on God’s green earth does that movie have to do with reading, writing, or arithmetic? Does anyone need any more proof that promoting homo[s-x]uality, liberal social causes, and anything which denies God or His truth, is the real "hidden" agenda of the government schools?) In the mean time, get your children out of the cesspool, people.
