    Sex Education

         What fool in his right mind thinks this makes sense. Teaching children about anal sex and vaginal lubricants? Is this the straw that broke the camel's back then it should be. You entrust your child's education to these pedophiles and you end up with...

    No Faith

    You aren't going to find many people who teach purely facts. Most everyone puts their personal beliefs in everything.

    Failed Institution

    Every time I talk to a teenager, I am astounded at how little our public schools are actually teaching the children of this country. I don't exactly know why this is, only that it eventually will lead to the detriment of our country. Little education and almost NO culturing. It's...
