Let’s take another look at public education in America—the greatest system for breeding idiocy that the world has ever known.
First we’ll pay another visit to Fort Worth, Texas, where folly may be viewed in microcosm. Last week the Fort Worth school district rescinded the suspension of a 14-year-old honor student for saying “homosexuality is wrong.” The alleged teacher who had him suspended had decorated his classroom with a poster of two men kissing, telling his students that homosexuality is now “the way it is” and they’d “better learn to accept it.” When the boy’s mother showed up with a lawyer, school officials backed down. Then they turned around and suspended the “teacher”—with pay, of course.
Now the teacher’s back to work, as reported in “the premier media source for LGBT Texas,” dallasvoice.com.
The salient facts that emerge from the news report are these. 1. The “teacher” in question is openly “gay.” 2. So is a key member of the Fort Worth Independent School District Board of Trustees. 3. Other teachers at the high school are also overtly practicing homosexuals. 4. As soon as the teachers’ union got involved, school officials abandoned all pretense of disciplining the “teacher.” 5. No one has denied that this wretched man did indeed display, in his classroom, a picture of two men making out.
