take very if as a are to The root cause of most of Lithe problems our society is fac jng today is the breakdown of the J traditional family and traditional morals and In the context r tof our this is so With the issues of low test scores and discrimination in our schools it would be wise to con this breakdown of tradition the root Why are schools failing More than any other it is chil dren who have no desire or inter est in being They come to school because by law they are forced After age some come to school only because it is a con dition of their They have no respect for authority nor any desire to better They want to be free from all authority and The children and their parents who teach their children to respect respect them respect God and the laws of living he has set forth for us are being discriminated Theynave to compete with a lib eral lawless Their chil dren are exposed to and influ enced by van those who carry and sell and use Teachers and administrators jobs are to their jobs have now become to discipline and maintain order They put up with kids who repeatedly disrupt show up only occassionally and are None of our young people are being done any favors in this sit including those juvenile Life is not handed to any of us on a silver Rich or life is a To teach kids that we will continue to tol erate regardless of their is a grave injustice to In regards to

to ques tion and poli cies implemented in school It is a parents privilege to chal lenge injustices or inequalities inflicted upon It is a districts responsibility to address any concerns
