They were a lot nicer than I would have been.

My 6th grader brought home a reading assignment they gave him at school last week, an anti-meat Op-ed.  The assignment was to read the story and write using your own words what the author was trying to say.  They gave him a score of 1 because he didn't do the assignment. The reason he didn't do the assignment was because he was disgusted by the topic. He was smart enough to see the anti-meat message and refused to do it.     

The op-ed was from the New York Times

Not Grass-Fed, but at Least Pain-FreeBy-Adam Shiver

A quick BING search for the Op-ed found a reprint in the Animal Liberation Front (terrorist group) web page.


I'm not bothered by his score of 1, because in my book he used his brain. In my book he got a 100.    Oh by the way my wife cooked up a prime rib that night.

It's too bad they didn't tell the students to just write whether they agree with the article or not, and why. Even so, they are not in hs speech class.

There's only one solution when public schools act like this.

That is, take the kids OUT OF public school, and get them into parochial or private school.

If one is unwilling to do this, one must accept the reality that their kids are going to be indoctrinated against their own parents, and their parents' value systems and beliefs, by the leftists who control "public" education.

It's really quite simple.
Anyone should be able to understand this.
