Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Wednesday, January 21, 2009


My future sister-in-law, a second grade teacher in a New Jersey public school, was told by her principal that the teachers were not allowed to turn on the inauguration for the children in the classrooms in case there happened to be an "act of violence."

That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

Cruel too.

And sick.

This is the sort of odd group thinking that steered me to homeschool many years ago.

We have one child in public schools, one child homeschooled at the moment, and I kept our daughter home for the inauguration, because I was pretty sure the school wouldn't show it to the kids.

But my husband just pointed out that if someone had violently attacked the president, I wouldn't have wanted my daughter to see it at school.

I think that's the act of violence they were worried about, not one student knocking out his Obama-supporting classmate, like I first thought they meant.
