I support the Board of Education's amendment to the regulation to prevent social engineering

We are supposed to trust teachers who are interested in "re-educating" our children, who think that they know better than parents. The hubris is appauling.  The comments of others who think that parents are hick, back-water biggots belies their best interests in our children and the country.  Maybe some of these teachers have been in Ivory Towers too long. Maybe some of the educators are eager to create a world in their own image. What right do they have to do so?
