There seems to be no end to the absolute stupidity and outright despicable way in which the American public school system treats students and citizens.
The universities and colleges have long been a bastion of untouchable snobs who seem to care little about the education of the child, and would rather push a very clear and obvious political agenda.
In the case of public schools, we are inundated with the absolute worst and as a result, the quality of education in this country has dropped into the gutter.
And with teachers and assignments and administrators that toe the PC line and ignore actual education, it’s obvious that America will continue to flounder.
There’s just no end to the barrage.
Now, there’s another reason to be sickened by what our students are doing in some schools.
“Students in ninth grade at Salem Junior High School were given a homework assignment where they were told to draw a propaganda poster for a terrorist organization.
After parents complained, the assignment was canceled. However, many students had already completed it, leaving some parents concerned about what they had been exposed to in the process.
Annie Langston couldn’t believe her 14-year-old daughter Mikalia was given the assignment.
‘My initial response was, ‘there’s no way you’re going to do this assignment,’ Langston said.
To complete her assignment, 9th grade Mikalia ended up on the Internet, where she typed in, ‘how to recruit for ISIS’ into Google.”
Sick. Really, really sick.
Mrs. Langston then sent a letter to the school, demanding an explanation. It’s what every concerned parent would’ve and should’ve done, given the gravity of the situation. Part of the letter read:
“In light of what happened in Paris, is that the reason for this assignment? I feel a different assignment or report could’ve been chosen or a discussion in class about the tragic events.”
Langston received a response from the teacher soon after, apologizing for the misunderstanding and informing her the assignment had been canceled. She also received a phone call from the principal.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
‘They’ve sat down with this particular teacher, and it has been taken care of,’ Langston said. ‘The assignments that have already been turned in, they have been shredded.'”
Well, that’s nice, but the damage has already been done.
Furthermore, this was not a mistake, nor was it an administrative oversight. This was purposeful. The children were made to copy the Arabic script and write the words, “Join ISIS.”
The only word that should have been associated with this lesson is “vile.”
Look, just one more reason to homeschool your kids!
