Just how dumb are educrats? 
Please tell me this is a George Carlin joke:

After a public school teacher was recorded telling students they belonged in hell if they did not accept Jesus as their savior, the school board has banned taping in class without an instructor’s permission

You can't make this stuff up, folks.

...and has added training for teachers on the legal requirements for separating church and state.

Wow. The official position of the District is that teachers colleges are so useless that their graduates cannot even be assumed to understand the basic foundational documents of our Republic?

In that case, the solution isn't inservice training. It's a Stalinist purge - starting with the deans and faculty of teachers colleges.

Splash, out


In the teacher education program I just completed, it was stressed that personal opinion DOES NOT belong in the classroom. And ANY American adult should understand the concept of the separation of church and state. This teacher just seems like a zealot. If he wants to spout that kind of thought in a classroom, he needs to go find a fundamentalist Christian school to teacher in...
I don't remember that even being an issue in the school of education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa back in the early/mid 90s. It was just assumed. Then again, the school was in danger of losing its national accreditation at that time, so obviously it had issues.
