Florida Dad Furious After Finding His 4th Grade Son’s School Paper: “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”
READING , WRITING and INDOCTRINATION …
These public schools just do not give up on brainwashing the children of America. Pay really close attentions parents, because the next child being indoctrinated might just be yours. Why do many liberal educators so hate the freedoms provided in the US Constitution? Maybe some one should have stood up and told the teacher that, “FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE”!
Aaron Harvey, a Florida dad who’s 4th grade son attends the Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville is furious because of a writing assignment given to his son and rightfully so. As reports at Yahoo News, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. in January; however, after the attorney left, the fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the following sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down … “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”. Really, why would a teacher pick giving up individual’s rights provided in the ‘Bill of Rights’to be the lesson of the day? Can you say liberal indoctrination? The question that needs to be answered is why should any of “WE THE PEOPLE” have to give up any of our Constitutional rights to be safer? But of course a 4th grader would never respond in that manner, thus the reason why a teacher would attempt to indoctrinate them at that age. At some point it needs to be made a criminal offense for teachers to bring their politics into the classroom. That would put an end to this nonsense.
The words are written in crayon, in the haphazard bumpiness of a child’s scrawl.
“I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”
They’re the words that Florida father Aaron Harvey was stunned to find his fourth-grade son had written, after a lesson in school about the Constitution.
Florida 4th Grader Brings Home Paper That Says, I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights in Order to Be Safer…
Aaron Harvey’s son wrote as part of a school lesson, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.” TheBlaze has redacted the child’s name.
Harvey’s son attends Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville, Fla. Back in January, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. But after the attorney left, fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down, he said.
The following is rather telling. Kandra Albury, the spokesperson for Duvall County Public Schools stated that the Cedar Hills principal received many concerns by parents back in January when the lesson was first done and the district/principal was looking into it. The spokesperson made an underhanded reference that Harvey was not one of the concerned parents who complained. Here it is April, 3 months later, and the school district has still not explained themselves. Maybe they will now that they have been outed in the media as the furious father went directly to The Blaze rather than getting the run-around and the story buried by the district.
Kandra Albury, a spokeswoman for Duvall County Public Schools, which includes Cedar Hills, told TheBlaze she didn’t know what prompted Sabb to have students write the sentence.
She said the principal had fielded one parent’s concern about the lesson in January, but it wasn’t Harvey. She said Thursday the district and principal were “checking into” what had happened.
UPDATE I: Florida School District Responds to Child’s ‘Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights’ Assignment: ‘A Review and Investigation Will Occur’.
The problem is not what the attorney taught in providing civics to the youth. At issue is the liberal teacher who wants children to start thinking about what rights they would give up to so-called be safer.
The lesson taught by the attorney was part of Justice Teaching, a program started by former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis that puts legal professionals in Florida schools to teach about the American legal system and the Constitution.
“The Justice Teaching activity on constitutional rights that was conducted at Cedar Hills Elementary School is consistent with our efforts to broaden civics-based education and develop critical thinking skills among our students,” Dr. Nikolai P. Vitti, superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, said in a statement to TheBlaze. “The lesson builds awareness of First Amendment rights through a partnership with an association of local attorneys. Our possible concern rests with a follow-up activity that may have been conducted after the lesson. A review and investigation will occur to determine the facts of that assignment.”
