Failed school system part of problem
This is a response to the letter from teacher Christy White on Jan. 9. She stated that some say the school murder tragedies occurred because God and prayer are not allowed in public schools and God allows freedom of will. She also said to stop trying to manipulate her into acting on your religious beliefs.
She stated that as a teacher, she is already responsible for educating and does not want the responsibility of carrying a weapon.
All the mass murder shooters were students, all were on some mental health medication and all were the responsibility and product of the public school system. You can't claim responsibility and deny it, too.
I personally don't know how so many can think gun violence is the fault of a material object and not the product of a failed school system.
Misinformation, indoctrination, and, if it feels good, do it, is taught in our schools today and is replacing ignorance and illiteracy. The revolution in American education worked against high standards and rewarding merit, and pragmatically against things like tracking in schools. It worked against serious teaching of core topics, like history, arithmetic and writing, and has been underway for a long time. It is a revolution whose flip side has been self-esteem and other garbage in the classroom. Do you think your children would be better prepared for college and adult life if they are processed through the public school warehouse system (central government run) or private/chartered schools? We have all seen that “deer caught in the headlights look” on the average public school graduate when asked a simple question they should know the answer to. Results are obvious and recorded history. Unfortunately the mentally disturbed youths that committed these tragedies were medicated and allowed to be mainstreamed into a strained system without taught values. Some liberal politicians that count on future misinformed freeloader voters support the public school system but send their children to private schools. Ms. White suggests that if you want the school violence to stop, spend time at a soup kitchen. Or, do her job and teach someone to read.
