It's unfortunate that we allow outside forces determine what we do as a community...the value statement does not endorse a religion nor does it force anyone to believe a particular faith...it's a shame that our Board feels a need to buckle to the value's of a community from Wisconsin...perhaps its because we as a community weren't as supportive as we should have been of our elected officials...it's unfortunate on both accounts...

Unless the district is going to teach religion there's no point in having any reference to God any where in its statement of values. You want God in your child's school mission statement? Then send them to a religious school.

Then what is the purpose of its inclusion? Allow the schools to teach unfettered by this sort of silliness. The churches are already allowed to do the same.

Lost coming over the wire or deleted from the article is the fact that only a "valuing of the belief in God" is being stricken while a "valuing of religious freedom" is being retained. I don't see a problem with this. It looks like an editor is trying to generate clicks by covering only part of the story.

You know that story in the Bible where Ham the son of Noah uncovered Noah's nakedness?, About how God put a curse of Canaah one of Hams decendants because of it, Canaah is the father of all the black race of people. And the blacks are under that curse put on Canaah!, I know this one black that resents God for this, One day, I overheard Him cussing The Holy Spirit all to pieces!!!, It was so funny, If you heard Him you'd die laughing!!!.

schools not teaching morals....big surprise

not teaching how to make change for a dollar either. Balance a checkbook. Fill out a job application.

HS grads can't read, write, perform simple math, know history, the law of the land (constitution), or proper social behavior, importance of family, ambition,

public schools need ended today! sell 100% of all public education buildings and assets.

private schools only, with voucher program for those unable to pay tuition.

competition between schools will provide excellence, or school goes out of business.

public schools strive to be less than average; and blame funding as problem.

the failed liberal adgenda has our society ranking last in education, as compared to peers; but we spend the most to achieve last place.

PS: the money spent right now on just the interest of the national debt would provide every USA citizen a college education where ever they wanted to go, including room & board.

The pendulum has swung to the communists/progressive/agnosti cs with the election of the black secular lord. Just the mention of a Higher Power is enought to move the political correctors into action. Howz all that working for ya.

it is swinging so fast back to family values, that when it hits the liberal scumbags, it will knock them out of the park.

hope they can swim....if they can't, it will help the economy.

If God has been taken from the classroom, what's the point? We've been on the downslide since the day prayer was outlawed in school in the 60's.

Right. We need to get back to the wholesome "good old days" of the 50's when every housewife was looped up on valium and a Christian had a black man hanging in every lawn. Perhaps you meant the 1930's were the good old days. You know, good Christian values like mobsters gunning each other down in the streets and Christian America jacking off to news reel footage of it at the movies. Maybe you meant even further back. Back to when Christians murdered and sexually tortured over a hundred thousand innocent women for being witches and werewolves. Considering you guys voted with your Bibles twice, for the worst president in US history, I think you suffer from a very short memory. Remember when the oil lobby told you guys that there was no such thing as global warming and everyone at church repeated it? How'd that work out for you?

Now when Mitt Romney made huge money off the abortion industry, through a company that was busted for illegally dumping aborted fetuses, is THAT the "family values" you are talking about? Perhaps you meant the Newt Gingrich kind of family values. You know, when he cheated on his wife while she was lying in a hospital bed with cancer. Don't kid yourself, little hill billy. You had your big "Mission Accomplished" day in the sun and America is still digging ourselves out of the 8 year hole it put us in.

We all know the GOP is the education party...right? Ha ha ha!

We all know how Christians have lied to get creationism...oops I meant "Intelligent Design" forced on public schools in the face of scientific facts...right? Perhaps talking snakes are a little more to your liking when it comes to what's being taught in public schools.

Now let's ignore the fact that Christians pulled their kids out of public schools and went for home schooling a long time ago and that's the reason that public schools are underfunded.

You are one long Tea Bagger newsletter and your propganda bullshit has nothing to do with reality. Working people know exactly who screwed this nation. It's the guy you voted for twice because he was "God's President".

A special thanks by the way to all Rightwing Christian Conservatives for personally being responsible for selling our nation out to big corporations, making us an enemy of the world and voting for idiots and reptiles that can't form whole sentences. All because someone mentioned the name Jesus.

If you want to know just how sick the average working American is of you and your invisible butterfly nut job "family values". know that in this still mostly racist country, Americans picked a black man with a Muslim sounding name over your decorated war hero.

Now let's look at the percentage of Americans who claim to be Christian drop 10% in 7 years. It's called natural selection and you guys are floaters with Zeus and Thor.

BUSTED!

When you said the Liberals destroyed the public school system, what you meant to say was it was people just like you...eat the facts.

Google the DeVos family. They are Rightwing Christian Conservative Billionaires who are trying to destroy the pubic education system.

Now back to your lies and propaganda. I'll stick to the facts. With links backing up what I say. Unlike you.

Turns ot that K12, run by Rightwing Christian billionaires has huge amounts of money to make by getting public schools shut down. The DeVos family and the huge profits they stand to make are the direct reason people are saying vouchers are the way to go. Nothing to do with a "failed" Liberal agenda. Just like when the oil lobby claimed there was no such thing as global warming and all the Christians repeated it, this is just another case of the uninformed Christian Right jumping through hoops like a trained poodle to make billionaires more money. At the cost of our nation I might add.

You thought you could spew out Rightwing propaganda and go unchallenged in this hooptie little town. You thought wrong.
