That is getting pretty close to the line, no question.
Had the teacher had kids pretend to be Christians for three weeks, recite Christian prayers only as a role playing game, just to learn what Christians believe, I wonder how that would have been viewed?
Oh, I see it was reported in the Mainstream Media, interesting.
The sfgate.com would be considered local media PCL1 .... not the MSM!
Wasn't that your point the other day?
I haven't read this story in the MSM .... am I missing something?
Sf gate is the online version of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Contra Costa County is across the bay from San Francisco. This was a local story and has not been seen on any other MSM site.
Back to my initial point, you only see these stories if they pertain to Christianity, not islam!
If you don't consider the SF Chronicle to be MSM, then I'll have to concede your point. I don't see any reference to this story in any of the national media.
No, I do not consider SFG to be MSM, especially when they are covering a story just across the bay. That would make it in this context, a local story.
We cant read this in school
But this is ok to read in public school
Poor Jewish girls school gets top grades in Brooklyn NY
None of the teachers went to college and their base salary is $6, 000 a year.
Students spend less than half of the week studying math, reading, science and social studies. The majority of class time is devoted to religious instructions..
The Answer on inproving education is abolish public education and expand private education. And give Parents the bill not by making taxpayers pay for it. And if your class is failing you fire the teachers. Just like when your team has a losing season you hold the coach or manager accountable and you fire him
How is it no one ever thought of opening a medical clinic with untrained doctors paid six grand a year, and emphasizing religion rather than medicine?
We could save a bundle on Medicaid.
LOL......with Obamacare you'll be lucky to get that much from your medical attendant, being the doctors will all be dropping out of the system.
Why the snark anyway? Don't like that kids can be educated without a teacher having a degree and for a lot less money and a big expensive school?
Snark? Why, there was no snark. If we can educate kids so cheaply, perhaps that is the solution to soaring medical costs as well.
Oh, and those court costs could be brought down by just representing ourselves, perhaps to Judge Judy. The commercials would more than pay the court costs.
Our soaring medical costs isn't because of educating a doctor for 12+ years. That was their choice to go into that profession. It has a lot more to do with the fear of being sued for malpractice.
Yes, that's so, but then, if we paid them six grand a year and hired them right out of high school, they could just declare bankruptcy and quit if they were sued. That way, they wouldn't need malpractice insurance.
Sorry I don't get your point. What does educating kids successfully for less money have to do with higher education? My kids went to religious schools, it cost half of what public school does, not all their teachers had degrees and they were more than prepared for college. Do I think we can educate college kids for less? You betcha. I believe a lot of their undergraduate work could be done over the computer and in less time, without all the time wasted in traffic, parking issues, sitting in boring lecture halls, running across campus to class etc.
I agree that higher education is more expensive than it needs to be, and that online classes could help.

I'm sure that if you keep searching, you can find better examples than these. The problem comes when you try to generalize to the entire educational establishment from isolated examples.
