Sorry Mr. Darwin, God created the universe and all that is in it. When we tamper with God’s plan, inevitably we foul it up and then marvel at the results. Killer bees, kudzu, the Tower of Babel, “public education”. Why is “public education” listed? Because God’s plan was for one man and one woman to join together in marriage, procreate and then raise those gifts, the children He sends, to know, love and serve Him. God’s order was for each of us to be responsible for the rearing of our children, our Gifts from Him. For centuries, we followed His plan but then we found a better way. We would make the government responsible for our task. We will pay money to have them fulfill our responsibility. After all, they’re smarter, they’re trained for it and now we can have more time to earn more money to pay them to do more. And we wonder, how did it get like this? Why are our children no longer innocent at age 8 or 9? Teenage crime, pregnancy, drug addiction – all coming at younger and younger ages. They are permitted to read a sex journal but not His Word. We have abdicated our God-directed responsibilities and changed His plan.
Oh, but Mr. Adams, this is a totally different time: this is the computer age. That’s why we have a new pastime – Sexting – as modeled by a 45-year-old degenerate aptly named Weiner. That’s why Lee County has a political viper for a school superintendent and political hacks as board of education commissars, using our children as pawns to extort more money and power. I use my Savior’s own words to describe them: the den of vipers, hypocrites. If they are truly concerned about the children, why do they play these money games? Why did this den of thieves start to fire teachers long before the budgets were even finalized? Could it be the perfect ploy for extorting more money? Why do they not wish to discuss cutting central office staff or supplements? Why did they totally disregard a suggestion from within their own ranks to outsource custodial duties and SAVE $600,000? Because their interest is not our children or safeguarding our tax dollars. Their genuine interest is furthering their own power!
We created this separate class of demigods when, in our desire to abdicate our responsibility to teach our children, we allowed the government to do our job. No matter how well intended the reason, GOVERNMENT IS ALMOST NEVER THE BEST ANSWER! Do I advocate only home schools – no. But we have actively or passively allowed bureaucrats to build their power and fortunes by telling us what is needed or what is best for our Gifts! If we cannot home school THEN FIGHT TO WREST OUR CHILDREN FROM THE GOVERNMENT! Fight for Charter Schools, Private Schools, and VOUCHERS to allow each of us to assume, once again, some of our responsibility.
Now please don’t be foolish and misrepresent my comments to infer that public school teachers are unnecessary, misguided, or anything negative. Some teachers unquestionably are indoctrinators, breathing the gas of liberalism. However, most are the pawns of the bureaucrats who milk the system we have allowed. Many desperately want to intellectually feed and nurture our children but the vipers prevent them.
You must Discern, Read, Listen, Think and Pray! Trust your own hearts and most of all, trust yourselves. The demigods do not know what is best for our Gifts. And GIVING MORE MONEY TO EDUCRATS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE QUALITY OR CARING!
