Are Your Childs Rights At School Violated
Most parents will agree that a good education is important. It is equally important that certain values come first in the implementing of what is being taught. For instance most parents would object to sexual education at a kinder garden or 1st grade level. Why is that? Obviously, the child has not under gone any changes, nor should the children of the world at this age be sexually active. This is a legitimate reason. The child also is not likely to understand what sex really is.
This same line of thought can also apply to things they are currently being taught in schools today. Should elementary children be taught to drive a car? I would hope not! Should they be taught to be violent? Should they learn about war? Should they be taught how to get a job? For an elementary school child the answers should be no! So how is it that our schools and teachers find it relevant to make our children say the Pledge of Allegiance?.When I went to register my son for Pre-K the kinder garden kids were about to say the Pledge of Allegiance. As I listened they were being coached by the school principle and there were words they all had trouble pronouncing.
The Principle corrected their grammar as they were reciting, but I had to ask myself do they know exactly what they are pledging? In the Pledge of Allegiance there are 6 words that 100 % of all kinder garden and 98% of all 1st grade kids can't understand. Even if a great teacher taught the meaning of each word could a mere child reason on his or her Allegiance? If you asked a 5-year-old child "What is democracy?" They would probably look at you and lift their shoulders and say, "I don't know!" So why is it being taught at such a young age? Are our children being conditioned to be model citizen or patriots? This is exactly the case. Countries around the world use such conditioning to win over the spirit of their citizens.Should any child be forced to say the Pledge Of Allegiance? Most certainly not! If you don't understand a contract that you signed should you be bound to its terms? Apparently the courts in many states believe that a contract is only valid if both sides agree to its terms, and if both parties do not understand the terms, then the contract may be as valuable as toilet paper. So, if a child has to wait until he or she is 18 years old to vote, then the burden of his or her allegiance should not be called to question until age 18 either. What if the child is from another country and has duel citizenship? How can they pledge allegiance to both countries.
According to the King James Version of the Bible at Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one and despise the other. As long as we have our freedom then we all should be able to choose when we understand not before we understand. To do so could be ignorance on our part..Don is the owner of several free information websites and the sole proprietor of Java Jakes Gourmet Coffee Co.http://www.
