    Do you have evidence THIS principal said it's okay to discuss homosexuality with kindergartners? Unique people are unique. They are in different schools with different communities and different values. Trying to compare a school from one school from one town in one state to a different school in a different town in a different state is unfair.

    Furthermore, I agree with the principal's decision. The school should not take a position on either side of such a politically charged issue. There's nothing wrong with discussing the political issue, but it should be done at the appropriate times, with fact based literature. A student pro-life group setting up displays at lunch time does not meet those standards.

    How is the school taking a position? And why are you talking about discussing "the political issue"? We have absolutely no indication that the exhibit was political. It's biology. If that's where the school wants to take it, to the political realm, that's their problem.

    People always criticize our public schools for not fostering independent thought. This is a classic example of that.

    3. Don't groups sanctioned within a high school have teacher advisers?

    The article leaves questions, such as

    1. What was the display depicting?

    2. Were the students just educating on the levels of gestation?

    3. Why is the development of a child in the womb, "controversial"?

    It certainly is told to us that it is fine to broach subjects like homosexuality to kindergartners, are we to think that high school students aren't equipped to see how a baby in the womb develops?

    Yes, but they don't do that by showing gay porn in the classroom.

    I think a picture of a fetus is starting to border on what should be left to Health class. But I guess this "they can't do whatever they want" feeds your CPC, so go for it.

    Odd.
    Here's a clue....Some High schools across the country also have bible study groups as well. It's called the 1st amendment.

    True..My first thought was along that line as well....But I see nothing in the article to lead me to believe that was the case.

    That isn't what was reported to have gone on...

    Nor would they permit a pro-choice group.
    Sure they would.

    I guess I'm glad my children's school district is more reasonable and not relying on extremes and shock to terrify students into various views.
    What do you find so shocking about a child in the womb?

    No - I'm pretty certain that if someone tried to start a pro-choice group and showed aborted fetuses it would cause an uproar and be deemed offensive.

    Let me see. A pro-life group brings the display in, and it's not political? OK. Anything you say.

    I don't find anything shocking about fetuses and babies. What's shocking? Nothing. I find the fact that they permitted a pro-choice group on a high school campus to be strange. Not even offensive: but strange.

    And, no, they wouldn't permit a pro-choice group. You seriously think they would?

    LOL

    No, it's not. The biology can't be illustrated without it being political? That's just silly.
