Let kids be kids
I was out talking to people today about the school board. One couple said they wanted agendas taught in school because some parents don't teach values at home. To this I say, commonly held values like discipline, respect and honesty should always be taught in our schools, however, do our youngsters really need to learn about oral sex in the 5th grade? Our teachers will have a better chance to teach good academics when they have fewer responsibilities beyond the academic focus they are entrusted with.
