Eighth graders were told to write a narrative on how they would respond if they got drunk, had sex with a stranger and acquired herpes.
When confronted, the teacher said it was part of Common Core.
Memo to parents: Heads up.
The assignment was given to the 8th graders at Myron L. Powell Elementary school in New Jersey.
This is the actual assignment:
"You had a really rotten day, but lucky for you your best friend is having an awesome party later. You go to the party and start drinking. You have a little too much to drink and start talking to this girl/guy you’ve never seen before. You head upstairs to get better acquainted despite several friends telling you that you don’t even know this person. You end up having sex with this person. The next day you really can’t remember everything that happened and rely on your best friend to fill you in. A week later you find out that you contracted herpes from your one night stand and that this is a disease you will have all your life and never know when an outbreak will occur."
Mom Amy Loper was shocked when she discovered her son's homework assignment.
Her just turned 13 year old son.
She immediately began calling the school asking what was going on.
She was told she could opt her son out of sex-education classes. The problem is that this was not a sex-ed class. It was language arts.
She was also told the assignment was part of, you guessed it, the school's "core" curriculum, a.k.a. Common Core.
The school said the assignment had been taken from an approved book titled, "7 Habits Of Highly Successful Teens."
Mrs. Loper says, "It's not the school's job to make these points to the kids."
She says, "Society is in such a downward spiral and everyone is willing to go along on the ride instead of trying to bring up their kids and actually parent."
In her moment of crises it probably does seem that everyone is going along with the ride, but they are not.
Amy posted her concerns on Facebook. The post went viral.
Many are concerned, but unsure how to stop this kind of activity in the classroom.
Janice Crouse, who pays attention to these sorts of things, says, "It is ridiculous to think that a teacher would force children of that age to be thinking about those kinds of subjects. We've just gotten so sexualized that I think future generations are just going to look back at this era and roll their eyes and wonder what in the world was going on."
Mom Amy Loper told NBC, "This is vulgarity at the utmost."
She said, "It is insanity."
Actually it is not insanity on the part of those advancing this kind of material in the public school system.
It is both deliberate and calculated.
A number of books have been written to expose how public education has been hi-jacked by progressives to advance an ideology that is in absolute conflict with the intentions of our Founders, including the Father of Public Education, Noah Webster.
"Crimes Of The Educators: How Utopians are using Government Schools to Destroy America's Children," is one of them.
The authors explain how secular progressives seek to transform America by using our government run public schools.
An attempt is being made to "transform" every discipline of education.
When socialism failed in Europe, its apostles repackaged it to become a "cultural socialism,, making public education the breeding ground.
While there are many characters in the cast, John Dewey is most often considered the key player remaking American public education as Webster and other Founding Fathers had intended it to be.
To Dewey and his colleagues, public education and the way it was structured, provided the perfect vehicle to transform the West---in particular America.
Dewey, a secular progressive luminary, laid the ground work to transform public education to a process of social and moral indoctrination, thus creating a mechanism for "socializing America" and dumbing down the population by revising history, instituting moral relativism with its political correctness and removing proven methods of teaching such as phonics, etc.
Journalist Henry Menchen observed back in 1924 that the aim of public education was changing to become indoctrination---"To reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality."
The anti-Christian, anti-freedom, anti-American principles laid out by Dewey and his contemporaries in the early 20th Century is coming to fruition.
President Obama is now using Common Core as a tool of choice to not only seize control of public education, but to further "fundamentally remake America."
Heads up parents.
There is a stern warning in Deuteronomy 28: 32, "Your sons and daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all day long, and there shall be no strength in your hand."
God never intended that the state educate our sons or daughters.
Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Free.
