Re: “Mt. Pleasant school adopts program from organization that thinks family values groups are bigots

FRC and Focus on the Family are hate groups that hide behind religion.

Everyone is all about social programs. Christians want teacher-led Bible reading and prayer. Atheists want no voluntary prayer and an aggressive eradication of all things religious to the point where it interferes with any religious practice. Proponents of same-sex marriage want it to be included in the curriculum, and opponents of it want education that "traditional marriage" is the only legitimate type of marriage and that the mother/father/children nuclear family is the only legitimate family.

Being all about reading, writing and arithmetic has its own pitfalls. No Child Left Behind and the spate of test-based education is the product of that.

It should be about both with balance, teaching kids how to think critically and independently and education in the traditional sense. The other part of this, of course, is that parents should be involved every step of the way.
