Florida Teacher Says No to Bible During ‘Free Reading’ Time.
While I am not a great exponent of Religions in the Schools, look at the trouble they have with just figuring out how to teach MATH and then tell me what they would do to the Bible, but if the school policy is that the students have a period of FREE reading they they should be able to read what interest them.. such as the Bible..
To allow a teacher to say that you can not read this material in my class, assuming she is not talking about pornographic material, is a step toward censorship…
What if the teacher were a Conservative who said the student could not read liberal newspapers or magazines in his/her class? It would result in a media outcry from the liberals, and would be on their front pages.
Maybe she just doesn’t want her students to read the morality lessons often given in the Bible…?
That Joe Guy.
WOW! Freedom of speech took a real hit in nthat classroom. One of the reasons we have such poor studen ts at the early education levels is that there is no moral imperative. Banning prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, etc., shows that we have lost our moral center. How important is that? Just ask the Founding Fathers, who believe it is the reason for this countriy’s existence… so far.
