It’s not misleading but know that this story is not as heartwarming as I’m sure you felt it was coming in. No… in fact, this lady should lose her freaking job!
In a letter sent home by their teacher in McCordsville, Indiana, the teacher asked parents to tell their children they cannot use words like “God, Jesus and Devil” in school.
“With McCordsville Elementary being a public school, we have many different religions and beliefs, and I do not want to upset a child/parent because of these words being used,” the letter said. “If you got to church or discuss these things at home, please have a talk with your child about there being an appropriate time and place of talking about it.”
And of course, thankfully, parents are in an uproar over this. Even going as far as to bring it to the attention of their local news sources. This is simply unacceptable and should not stand. Aren’t we the majority in this country still? Why are so many of our educators crazy @$$ liberals? Like seriously? Did no one notice the hippies moving in and seeing how they could destroy the “system” from the inside?
What do you think of this letter? Did you find it appropriate?
As reported by TheIndyChannel.com:
Superintendent Shane Robbins said that the district is addressing the note with the teacher. Robbins said they want to be sympathetic to students from diverse backgrounds but they do not have the right to disrupt their freedom of speech.
“In this situation, we want to be sympathetic to all our students with diverse backgrounds. But at the end of the day, they have the freedom to say things as long as it’s not disruptive to the environment,” said Robbins.
School board policy states that because they are a public school, the district cannot “advance or inhibit” any religious observances, according to Robbins.
