The Southport High school in Indianapolis has discovered that there is a direct correlation between profanity and violence.
So NOW they are forbidding the use of profanity.
According to psychologist Timothy Jay, educators are usually distracted by more serious problems such as drugs, teen pregnancy and gangs. He says, Many are glad when students don’t shoot or rape each other. It sounds as though the inmates are controlling the asylum.
Most parents probably think that profanity has always been banned from school. They are certainly under the impression that their children are not going to get shot or raped when they send them off to school. So what exactly is happening in public schools?
If banning profanity from school is newsworthy, as though it is a new revelation, that profanity is bad . . . then, who has been teaching our kids for the past generation?
The answer is not to throw more money at the education system, but it is to establish absolutes, discipline and mutual respect, and to hire adults with the courage to implement it. This is Nina May for the Renaissance Women.
What has happened to universities in America that were founded on Godly principles?
For example, we can see the Christian character and views in the foundation of Harvard, the oldest university in America. In bold relief, at the campus it says, A Christo et Ecclesle which means . . . the church was the colony.
This is a far cry from how Harvard and other institutions of higher learning, that were founded on Christian principles, see themselves today. Are universities even relevant today? Are they serving to educate or indoctrinate? Why is there a move to eradicate classic works of literature from their must read list only to be replaced by current politically correct works that ridicule morals and values? T
hese are questions that families should ask themselves before they exchange their life savings for a changed child. These are the questions that alumns must ask before funding alma maters, and it is the question employers must ask new graduates looking for a job. If we stop asking the questions, we will accept any answer we are given.
This is Nina May for the Renaissance Women. (Isn’t that what education is all about?)
Thirty years ago, before sex education was required in public schools, and before legalized abortion, the out-of-wedlock birth rate for high school kids was less than 1%. Now it is soaring at over 30%. What have they been teaching kids for the past three decades to warrant such an epidemic?
Well first of all, kids were taught that any and all sex was good, just do it safely, abstinence is old-fashioned, and that sexual experimentation is liberating. What they weren’t told was that their innocence was being stolen, their self-esteem destroyed, their values mocked and the consequences were life-altering.
With the push for sexual liberation, past societal restraints quickly disappeared. No longer was a girl ashamed to be pregnant. She was taught to either abort or give birth and be eligible for welfare. She was lied to by the system that had authority over her.
But kids today, who are trying to hold onto their virtue and innocence, with programs like “True Love Waits,” are ridiculed by these same adults who have been lying to them for years.
This is Nina May encouraging parents to take back that authority and teach your own kids the real facts of life.
