Teachers Need To Learn Just Who Is In Charge

A few days ago, in response to a facebook survey question (“Should we put God back In schools?”) a friend of mine answered “Yes” (as did I) and went on to post the following comment:

“Take prayer out, tell kids their ancestors were chimpanzees, provide them with condoms and stress feeling over thinking and sensitivity over excellence and what do you get? Drugs, teen pregnancy, school shootings, low test scores, illiteracy, and every other social ill we see today.”

Although I could not see the response to his comments left by one particular liberal extremist (she had barred me because of a prior discussion in which I crushed her false liberal assertions), it was quite obvious from what my friend had written back, that she had taken offense at his words and that she was spewing all the typical liberal diatribes in defense of the public schools and teachers. Thing like…

* Most teachers are dedicated but all teachers poorly paid professionals.
* Public schools cannot pick and choose who they will and will not take.
* Conservatives are to blame for any and all of the failing that might exist in the public schools.
* Etcetera and so on and blah, blah, blah…

I infer from what my friend wrote in his responses that this particular liberal is a public school teacher (forgive us LORD GOD). I am sure most of you reading this have had to deal with a bad teacher or three over the years, and have heard the kinds of excuses they always used to explain away their inability to do the job they are paid to do.

Although my friend was doing a fine job of correcting her typical fact deficient liberal claims; I had to throw in my two cents. At his recommendation, I am posting my comments below.

Now please understand that I know that there are good teachers out there. I had three or four of them out of the forty plus teachers that I had over my K-12 school years . So if you are one of those few public school teachers, who actually is dedicated to education rather than indoctrination, and who has rightly refused to teach the likes of…
* Revisionist, blame America first, history,
* That evolution is the only scientifically sound theory of origins,
* That socialism is a good thing, or at least not a bad thing,
* That GOD has no place in the public forum,
* That there are few if any moral absolutes
* Unfounded self esteem rather than actual hard work and accomplishment,
* Other such nonsense,
and you have resisted and/or fought your union’s efforts to bankrupt the tax payers in this country, then know that the following was not intended as an attack on you. It is aimed squarely at those supporters and puppets of the liberal teacher's union and their anti-American, anti-Christian policies.

Hi John, I suspect I know who you are debating, since her comments do not appear on my page. She has already demonstrated that she cannot defend her liberal positions, and proven herself to be too cowardly to face one on one with anyone who knows what they are talking about, and has the courage and ability to fight and defeat her liberal agenda.

The simple fact is that far too many teachers and all of their unions have little or no interest in actually educating OUR children or helping them learn how to think. They are in fact dedicated sole to indoctrinating our children with their left wing, anti-GOD, anti-American propaganda, and telling them what to think. They see their classrooms as the new pulpits from which they proclaim their way as the one true way. They believe that it is their job to repair the damage done by parental teachings about right and wrong, good and evil, truth and justice. The are the willing servants of a spirit of anti-Christ which is trying to drag this, the greatest nation that GOD has ever raised up in the history of the world, to the same level of decay and failure that Europe has fallen into since abandoning its Christian roots.

What we need is a parental uprising. Teachers need to be taught that they are not our superiors, they are our employees. We are their employers, and they keep their jobs by our consent, not because their unions say they do. “We the people” are in charge of what they will and will not teach. They have no academic freedom to do whatever they want to do. It is the parents and the parents alone who have the right to decide what should and should not be taught, what is and what is not right and good for their children to do, see and learn at any point in the child’s schooling.

Responsibility for education should and must be returned to the local communities. The state should be permitted (only the most) restricted input into the process, and only by the consent of the parents. And the federal government should be allowed no input what so ever.

It is long past time for the American people in general, and parents in particular, to rise up and make it loud and clear to the elitist left, and anyone else who thinks they know better than we do, that it is “We the people” who are in charge, and that elected office holders, appointed bureaucrats, and all of their hirelings (and that includes teachers) are our servants, they are not our masters, and they had better start doing what “We the people” tell them to do.

Keep it clean. If all you can do is call names or threaten retribution, It will be assumed by most readers that you are admitting that you have nothing intelligent or worth while to add to the conversation, and therefore are not worthy of paying attention too.
