Prefer Notify & Opt Out

When a controlling body in a school system can endorse this kind of material for student consumption, we have to face the fact that we are losing control of our nation's most precious resource - the next generation of Americans.  For centuries the human spirit has aspired to higher ideals and values worthy of respect and honor.  We now find our children being indoctrinated wih base, demeaning behavior.  The pattern is set for them to follow if they so choose and - in sewing the seeds - those entrusted with educating our children are, in fact, perverting them.

To think that school staff would present this kind of material to students without even considering whether or not it is acceptable to parents, leaves one taking a long, hard look at the decision makers.
