  • Dad Furious After Finding This Crayon-Written Paper in Florida 4th-Grader’s Backpack: ‘I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights…to Be Safer’

    By Madeleine Morgenstern | The Blaze – Fri, Apr 12, 2013

    The words are written in crayon, in the haphazard bumpiness of a child's scrawl.
    "I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure."
    They're the words that Florida father Aaron Harvey was stunned to find his fourth-grade son had written, after a lesson in school about the Constitution.

    Aaron Harvey's son wrote as part of a school lesson, "I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure." TheBlaze has redacted the child's name.

    Harvey's son attends Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville, Fla. Back in January, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. But after the attorney left, fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down, he said.
    The paper sat unnoticed in Harvey's son's backpack for several months until last week, when his son's mother almost threw it away. The words caught her eye in the trash, and she showed it to Harvey, who said he was at a loss for words. He asked his son, who said Sabb had spoken the sentence out loud and told them to write it down. Harvey said he asked some of his son's classmates and got a similar answer.

    "Everybody has their opinions," Harvey told TheBlaze. "I am strongly for proper education, for the freedom of thought so you can form your own opinion and have your own free speech in the future... [but] the education is, 'when was the Constitution drafted, when was it ratified, why did this happen, why did we choose to do this...all these things, why did they particular choose those specific rights to be in our Bill of Rights.'"

    Kandra Albury, a spokeswoman for Duvall County Public Schools, which includes Cedar Hills, told TheBlaze she didn't know what prompted Sabb to have students write the sentence.

    She said the principal had fielded one parent's concern about the lesson in January, but it wasn't Harvey. She said Thursday the district and principal were "checking into" what had happened.

    Harvey, rather than asking the school for answers when he found the paper, wrote his concerns in an email, which was then forwarded to TheBlaze. He said he did it that way because he wasn't sure he would have gotten a straightforward answer if he asked the school directly.

    He said he just wants to see a "proper, unbiased education" system and doesn't want any kind of religion or politics brought into the classroom.
    "I believe in our Constitution. I am a veteran, I served for six-and-a-half years proudly and I served to protect our rights," he said. "Now whenever I have someone coming in and trying to pollute my child's mind with biased opinions...there's no education in that."

    Editor's note: TheBlaze has withheld the name of the child ad the father's request.

  • What blatant brainwashing!

    And they wonder why so many parents choose to homeschool?

    It's not just for religious reasons. Speaking for myself, I choose to homeschool because I don't want my children to be formed to be "cogs in the machine", I want them to be able to think, I want them to have a good education, etc.

    And of course I want them to save their souls, which an education founded on a premise of atheism won't accomplish.

  • What we see in the German speaking districts of the SSPX is the result of forcibly imposed brainwashing in the schools.

    That poor folks like the Romeike family are trying to escape, where children are taught stories about children praying to the devil.

    That's why they speak like cultural marxists.  That's why they worship Zionism.  That's why they are persecuting Tradition.

  • Public schools seem to be far more interested in promoting modern/anti-catholic values, history, stories, language, art, science and ways of thinking, than they are in teaching people to think clearly and competently.  I don't think it is a healthy environment for children or anyone else!

  • We never regretted homeschooling our 3 children of the 4.  The oldest had public and we were graced to see the marxism in the schools to home school the other 3.  ThanK God we had the rights, and we do be right, to homeschool.  If parents only knew what the federal gov't forces down children's throats.  Here in Phoenix, 2 years ago the high school books stated the Allayha is the Only true God.  Now if the schools are not to teach God, they are, and athesism is another that they teach and worldlism.

  • The floors of hell are paved with the skulls of bad schoolteachers.

    Oh wait, that was Bishops. Nevermind. Still, I think bad schoolteachers have it bad in hell for corrupting so many innocents.

  • Some school teachers are ignorant to the fact that they are change agents and do the destruction and agenda of the federal gov't.  Some have wised up and have left the job.

  • Whether they be ascribed to the individual or to the state; false rights are false rights. What appears to be happening in America now is that they are trying to lessen the emphasis on the former (individual), while attempting to increase it on the latter (state).

  • Quote from: Telesphorus
    Self-defense is a right.


    I was thinking of so-called freedom of speech, religious liberty, etc.

    When people talk about defending their 'rights' nowadays, they usually mean these things. The man in the article posted here is a clear example.

    Homeschooling is the way to go. Recently, there was a Dutch Catholic who was dragged before a court because he insisted on homeschooling his children, since he did not trust any school which accepts the claims of the conciliar leaders to the Supreme Pontificate. In the end, they seem to have left him alone, but it does not take away the fact that he has been bullied for trying to protect the souls of his children.

  • Yeah, I bet they'll try to crack down on homeschooling.  Fortunately though, they're system stinks.  They can't even keep the basic infrastructure in order.  So, even while they "chip newborns" and whatever, they'll be plenty of ways to slip through the cracks, because they can't do anything right!

  • I read somewhere, that the way to crack down on homeschooling, is to penalize those who accept the home schoolers for public college or employers who hire them.  And of course we have the states that make it more difficult by saying: we must approve your curriculm, or you must be a full fledge teacher and etc.

  •  The job of the public school has become to teach Children what to think not how to think.   Obama's goal is to ban home schooling.  At present with the country teeming with illegal aliens that are criminals...the German Homsechool family that was given asylum by the Bush Administration is in court with Holder trying to deport them back to Germany...saying that he was not being persecuted because of homeschooling is NOT a protected right nor are Home schooling parents a protected class...but gays are and pediophiles will be next.....we as parents are responsible for our childrens' education and souls.  Whatever we have to do to protect them we must do!
    We have homeschooled since 1990. Only our 15 yo daughter still home schooling everyone else has graduated.

    On the topic of government schools....our 22 yo daughter was accepted to a state university to study pre med.  While we were not thrilled about the choice of schools we trusted her to be steadfast in her knowledge and beliefs....believe me she was indoctrinated....within 3 years of education you would not realize it was the same young woman.  We do pray for her soul.  If we had it to do over we would have said NO to her choice of universities. Even our 15 yo daughter can not believe the change in her own sister. It is heart breaking.

  • Sorry to hear about your daughter Robin. I will say a prayer for her return.
    Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one's self unspotted from this world.
