I signed this petition for a couple of reasons. First, we are called to protect our children (and the children of our community). There were a number of areas where the school failed. (Assuming all children are ready for this, using college text book, curriculum and not communicating with parents… just to name a few). The other reason this petition is valuable is because these are OUR children and we want to parent them. We should be made aware of what is being taught. We should also not fear the rebuke of school board members for caring and giving input on behalf of OUR children. Parents need to be worked with, not shamed for speaking up and being involved.
I really do hope that one of the things that comes out of this is more transparency.
