Get Back to Basics II
I want to thank your readers for the kind words of praise for my last letter on education. Several people also reminded me of some items I didn’t include.
One woman has just discovered that her son, who has Jived with her all his life and was just graduated from high school, doesn’t know how to write his name on a job application. So she is :teaching him cursive writing, which she thinks should be taught in public schools. She explained that our country’s Founding Fathers wrote all documents in cursive. If our young people don’t know handwriting, they could easily be duped.
When someone pointed out that teacher dedication is sorely lacking, I was reminded of a day when I was a substitute teacher in grade four in an area school about three years ago. When three other teachers were unable to help me find a lesson plan book or any of the teacher’s manuals, I told them I could “wing it.” I asked the children where they had left off in each subject, and we proceeded from there. But at math time, the students weren’t sure because their teacher skips around in the book. To me, there is nothing more sequential than math. I was in the process of making up some long division problems and writing them on the board, when a math resource teacher came in, and was told the regular teacher “skips around.” She took me into the hall and stated that teacher has been reprimanded several times about the way she teaches math, as well as her not providing lesson plans and manuals. She asked me to report these mistakes to the principal, and she would take the class.
One man is worried about sports programs all the way up to the Olympics. He feels they will be jeopardized by transgenderism, which is the theory that each person has an innate gender identity that is distinct from that person’s sex. He asked me how women are going to compete with “women” who have been men.
School counselors have 5-year-olds in transgender programs and by age 8, some are having surgeries, all without the knowledge of their parents. According to the April 22, 2019 issue of National Review, the reality T.V. show “I Am Jazz” threw a “farewell to penis party” for a 17-year-old child. As the teenager hacked at the phallus-shaped cake with a knife, guests cheered and shouted, “Let’s cut it off.” In Feb., Jazz and Friends National Day of Community and School Readings sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign (a well-funded gay and transgender lobby group) as well as the N.E.A. teachers’ union, read glowing stories of children who have made the big break. Some have had double mastectomies as young as 13. Planned Parenthood operates on an “informed consent”, and children don’t require a letter of referral from a therapist or parents’ permission. Planned Parenthood also states hormone therapy ‘may begin on the first visit. They say the age limit has been reduced from 13 to 8.
Sheila Jeffreys, Author of Gender Hurts, insists that the funders of these transgender programs are drug companies, who stand to make huge amounts of money because these children can become dependent for life.
One woman who said she refused to speak to her daughter using male pronouns watches her as homeless, bearded, and sterilized at 19.
Planned Parenthood has sent its CEO to Girl Scouts International to tell the girls to experiment with sex, including sado-masochism with whips and chains. Your girls may not be there, but their money is.
Would Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby parts have anything to do with transgenderism? In her book What If We’ve Been Wrong, Terry Beatley states researchers are now mixing together genes of animals and humans. Baby parts are used in the manufacture of many cosmetics for years.
The Democrat Party funds Planned Parenthood heavily. Keep that in mind when you go to the polls.
