    So, the question would be do you think we should teach a class similar to what Gingrey is suggesting, promoting traditional gender roles and marriage roles?
    Teach 'em what you want, unless you lock your kids up in a bunker under your garage they're gonna make their own decisions. None of my values came from my parents or teachers- I learned those things from my own experience in society.
    If you could, you might try to devise a way to make kids process their input in the way you want but that sounds kind of insidious.
    Bottom line? Society is always changing and you can't take a photo of a year and say that THIS is how it should be. Unless you're willing to be perpetually angry and frustrated.

The only way you are going to ONLY teach children about "reading, writing, and arithmetic" is if you lock them away from every other student and their teachers.
    I never had teachers talk to me about gender roles. My teachers stuck to teaching. Some of them made it fun, others not so much, but they DID not act as surrogate families. The schools suck at teaching the students as it is quite obviously. Why would we trust them with ANYTHING else?

    Holy hell this. QFT. The schools can't even teach basic sciences properly without being disputed by pseudo-scientists, and now were gonna have them teaching gender roles? This is probably from the same group(s).

    Only an idiot would want the school to teach gender roles or anything else of that nature. How about getting our kids up to par educational-wise? THAT is what school is for, not to be surrogate parents or teaching social and gender roles. If ANYTHING, they should start teaching more about banking and saving money. Stuff like that.

    There is a true evolution in what a "traditional family" represents. I know some people are going to hate me using the word "evolution"...rather than "change", but take a minute to look up the word "evolution".

    I happen to know several "Mr. Moms" who aren't employed outside the home. Working in the home is a tough job. Anybody who has ever truly been responsible for a household knows exactly what I'm talking about.

    Regardless of what a nuclear family is to each individual, the bottom like is that if there are children...then they are exposed to a parent or parents who do role model and teach them right from wrong, world views, religions, current events, family traditions no matter where they originated within a family. Parents or a parent that relinquishes teaching their children all of the aforementioned...is setting that kid up for failure. Kids need guided and affirmed, or validated if you will.

    We live in a beautiful world...but it is a dangerous world. The best thing a parent can do for a kid is to let them know that he or she is safe...and that they'll do their best to make sure that their NEEDS are met...and that they will be there for them in the good, bad, and ugliest of times. Teachers at schools simply can't do that for a kid.

    Gender roles are best learned from parents.

    Dude, they taught you things you are not even aware of simply through what behaviors they role modeled to you. Humans do not learn primarily through books and instruction, they learn primarily from watching and interacting with other people. There does not need to be any formal instruction one way or another to learn certain attitudes and behaviors, kids are going to adopt the attitudes and behaviors of those they see around them and interact with on a day to day basis. There is nothing you can do to change that short of homeschooling a kid, and I have seen the consequences of that action working at Walmart.

    Are you kidding? I didn't learn any social or cultural behaviors from my teachers. I was never that close to any of them and couldn't wait to get out of school, so speak for yourself dude.

    No, gender roles are silly. People should do what they want to do, and make their lives what they want them to be.
