what are your children reading

taylor is almost two…
i still have a couple of years before I have to start wading into this debate, but why wait?
as some of you may know, fayetteville was placed on the map last year for the questionable books that were available to elementary aged children in the school library….

an article today Poison In Our Libraries brings the issue back to light and shows that it isn't just in Arkansas anymore…

another very good friend of mine has set up a website to show you what the school library has available to elementary aged children…. teachclean.com
please be advised that the material you will see on that site is very disturbing and explicit….even for adults!!!

what I don't understand is how, I as a taxpayer can have a child in America, pay for the school that he/she attends, and then be told that I can't have any say in what he/she reads/hears/learns because it is a violation of that child's first amendment rights…
what happened to my rights as the parents of that child?
does the local government want me to home school my child?
if that is the case, then we should petition that all families who home school their children are exempt from local millage rates and don't have to support the local trash that is being delivered by the schools to our children…

if we can't have a say in what they learn in a school funded by my tax dollars, then I as a parent should have the right and opportunity to remove my child from that school and not have to support the distorted and idealogical liberal views that are espoused by that school…

isn't that my constitutional right as well??

just amazing really
