Public school students are taught by the example set by administrators and teachers in the education system. When superintendents or teachers criticize teacher dress or the use of revisionist ideology, they risk public allegations from union stalwarts that are not true. This causes the administrators and teachers to withdraw from emphasizing substantial truth that students need and have the right to know. When courageous students speak the truth in class, and some do, they risk punishment with a lowered grade.
Union tenured radicals use the same attack method to shame those who promote celebrations of Christmas. This is well-documented by several publications. One is by a Jewish author, Ben Shapiro—Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America. Another by S. E. Cupp, an atheist who values the Christians’ disposition to do good, and supports religious liberty—Losing Our Liberty: The Liberal Media’s Attack On Christianity.
Precisely because of the obvious potential for abuse, even labor union advocates like AFL-CIO President George Meany and Franklin D. Roosevelt viewed unionization of the public employees as unthinkable. (Peter Brimelow and Leslie Spencer, “How the National Education Association Corrupts Our Public Schools,” Forbes magazine, June 7, 1993).
Rabbi Sol Roth explains the tragic mental disconnect that occurs when creation’s God, even Christmas, is forced out of the school building. He calls it functional segregation. Students are victims of mentally crippling education that substitutes men for creator’s God. Secular teachers and Darwin’s view for the origin and meaning of life get the credit for the complex marvels, function, and beauty that only our Almighty God could have made.
Furthermore, science becomes knowledge, apart from moral values. Consequently, morality has been steadily eroding in America. Morals are not just good ideas. They are founded in a perfect understanding of man’s nature. The truth about man’s nature is only known to the God of creation. Functional segregation in classrooms is harmful to religious faith, hence making the family and community irrelevant (Rabbi Sol Roth is an author and professor at New York’s Yeshiva University).
Quote from Thomas Huxley: “The Bible has been the Magna Carta of the poor and oppressed. The human race is not in a position to dispense with it.”
Studies show that a significantly higher percentage of public school teachers send their children to private schools than do non-teacher parents. “The percentage of public school teachers nationwide who are choosing to protect their own children by sending them to private schools is over twice the rate of non-teacher parents” (World, August 5, 1995). “More than half of parents with children in public schools… would send their children to private schools if they could afford to” (The Ames, Iowa Tribune, October 11, 1995).
That says something.
You do the math.
