Teacher instructs 4th grade students to write about giving up rights.
Report: Florida teacher tells fourth-graders to give up constitutional rights
This one contains a picture
Editor's note: The school district has said a I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer...
"He said he just wants to see a 'proper, unbiased education' system..."
...Biased towards what, exactly? Fascism? Obviously fascism. Because Obama's a fascist. Ah, I'm following you, Glenn, you crafty son of a gun.
Seriously, if you're trying to convince me that either party doesn't believe in that sentence, you're kidding yourself. Of course that pops up now, though. And is "The Blaze" really trying to lecture us on bias?
Good to see the people in the comments section are mentally stable, though. Here's a good one:
"'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.'
We can all dream, can’t we! Dude, wake up. The progressive indoctrination of our children has been going on for generations now. Public education is the worst thing to ever happen to our great country."

I don't really follow what's going on in this post but opinion-based education should be for college and private school.
If you would like to point fingers instead of discuss, it may be more productive to provide examples of public educators asserting conservative opinions.
Akin to asking kids to write to give up their constitutional right to have an abortion, right Jeff?
As a teacher myself, I don't see the issue. The assignment asks the student to use critical thinking and problem solving skills. It seems a little unconventional but that's what you have to do to be successful in the classroom anymore.
Assignment? There was no assignment. She told them to write down that sentence and that was it.
How many people upset about this support Homeland Security, the NSA, and the TSA? We give up constitutional rights in favor of security all the damn time. I'm not saying I support giving up such constitutional rights, but come on now - giving up constitutional rights for increased security is not a new or outrageous concept.

Won't happen to my kid one day when I have one. That teacher would be dealing with me.
I am pretty sure that teacher sees lots of angry notes in crayon already.

Something tells me teach was just hoping someone would get that on TV without anyone knowing she dictated it.
It would be a lot more than an angry note...I can tell you that
Nope...just speaking truth. My child won't be taught like that
I'm willing to bet you'll end up homeschooling your kids anyway.
I would laugh in your face. Don't tell somebody how to do their job just because you disagree with their methods. Jesus Christ the things some of you guys let get to you. I nearly feel bad for people so easily offended.
I still fail to see what teaching method or assignment you are referring to. She told the kids to write down a sentence and that was it.

LOL. These fourth graders don't give a flying eff what that sentence means. My guess is they forgot about it as soon as it was recess. It's the parents who are still freaking out about it.
You don't see the cognitive process and reasoning used in deciding what you would/would not give up?
Note: I have to make the assumption, according to the curriculum guide, she couldn't possibly just say" write this and sign it". It would have to be, if you feel this way, write this and sign it.

I'm not in this argument, but for the sake of argument anyway, how would you libs feel if she had them write the Lord's Prayer?
I apologize. I thought the teacher only told them to write that sentence and that was it. Like it was some attempt to plant that idea in their minds. I read again and saw where they were actually supposed to think of specific rights. Go on.
Simple...they would be raising hell
Haha it's apples to oranges. Typical though, make a big deal out of a teacher just trying to be creative
If that's teacher creativity, y'all get paid way to much.
