ACLU Dingbats

Thursday, April 19, 2007

Ok, fresh from Rog - this kids got more going on in his pants than J-Lo.

All kidding aside, the ACLU opposes dress codes for a lot of reasons, blah, blah, blah.
STROSSEN: The ACLU opposes dress codes because they violate students' rights, parents' rights, and are completely ineffective in addressing serious educational and disciplinary challenges that face our schools. In addition, they are a distraction from constructive measures that would more effectively address educational and safety challenges in schools.
Basically what it boils down to for me is that a buncha lawyers think they know more about education than educators.

You could certainly make the argument to me that most teachers can't teach their way out of a paper bag - I've been in public and private schools in three states and I'd probably agree with you. I'm spending more on private schools for my kids than it would cost to own a fricking Ferrari.

But this gal is arguing for the sake of argument - and claiming facts (they are ineffective) that are certainly not facts but lively debates in the education community. You wanna call it controversial, fine. (Note that it works great in Oz. Hmmmm.) As for violations of rights, well, everyone gives up some rights when they decide to (or are forced to) play in a community.

Teeny CAIR-ites aren't allowed to sex segregate their girls from the boys in our public schools, Skihs can't take 'ceremonial' knives to school, etc, etc. Live with it or educate at home/private. Catholics send their kids to a special school so the penguins can beat 'em. (kidding, probably)

Argh, to think I once almost sent these idiots money.
