    Maybe schools should try to teach children the essential skills they need. That seems to be pretty much of a challenge as it is. Leave the education of morals up to their parents, family, friends, etc.
    Seems repetitive; however,

    Would you expect them to join the side that is, traditionally been, so anti-homosexual? But, I see you want to just make generalized ad homs on the Left. So I'll leave you to that.

    And sorry to burst your bubble, the Left and Right have both, essentially, destroyed the economy.

    If your definition of "in depth sex education" is the practice of safe and responsible activities, yes. "In depth" must give a thorough grounding in potential health risks by not utilizing available means to prevent the transmission of STDs. As an aside, we should probably be going to elder living residences and providing the same type education as there is a rise in STDs among elders with the advent of medications for men.

    Sadly there is no scientific evidence of God and science would be a sham if they even mentioned God. Leave the fairytales for bedtime stories, and let our children learn only what science has learned. Otherwise you are putting them at a terrible disadvantage in a competitive world.

    I'm sure it's not nearly the same level as teen/20s STD levels. I'm pretty sure that is the highest age group for STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

    It actually is how it is taught not that it is taught. Remember the phrases "presentation if everything" and the one relating to perception.

    Could you provide documentation that "religious" are against teaching about "physically and verbally abusing their classmates"? Your contention is only "religious" kids commit acts of bullying?

    Not really, I see the left and it's tendency towards government control and their push towards "equal" results meaning actual being equal. They are the greater threat. But then, one does not try to fight a two front war if it is unnecessary. Also, at present, in my opinion, there is no unified right or a particular issue/trend, other than doing almost nothing, from those who are called the right. I am very much against corporatism also, just if given only the option of corporatism or socialism, I would chose corporatism. But my preference would be neither, and at present, the "right" are allies of convenience against the socialism of the left.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

If a student's beliefs cause them to reject friendship with another student who is seen as 'unclean' - fine, but those beliefs should not be allowed to cause physical or emotional harm to the other student. Tolerance should be seen as accepting the existence of others, particularly LGBT, nothing more.

    Those of one group don't have to like those others but they at the same time cannot be allowed to harm the others. Sometimes this must be taught to students, particularly when they are hearing bigotry and prejudice at home
    Are you unaware of the fact every school has standards of behavior which are given out at the beginning of every school year to both students and parents? Are you unaware that "home room teachers" go over these rules with students? Are you unaware that the teachers go over these rules with parents and both parents and students are required to sign a copy of the rules for entry into the student's file?
