SURVEY ASKING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IF THEIR FAMILIES OWNED GUNS
#1
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/...wned-guns/

Quote:Parents of students at a high school in Tennessee are speaking out against a survey students took without parents being told that involved questions asking if their families owned guns, among other potentially controversial topics.

....included questions about guns, abortion and religion, which some parents feel should not have been administered, at least not without their knowledge.

...she says her daughter was asked...if her parents owned guns; it also asked for the student’s opinion on the legalization of marijuana, abortion and what her religion is.

In a statement, Shelby County Schools said the survey was driven by the AP psychology class students and teacher-approved for a project teaching them about the scientific method. Here’s more from the statement:

Topics reflect current issues that students are seeing and reading about in the news, as well as the related laws and policies that address them. To support their research, students were permitted to conduct the surveys in several classes. The surveys were permitted only under the condition that they are completely anonymous and optional, and students were informed prior to the survey being handed out that it was completely anonymous and optional. Teachers of multiple subjects seek opportunities to incorporate current issues in their curriculum, including those included in this survey. Teachers and administrators at Arlington High School supported this research project because they believe the best way to effectively educate students about the issues that concern them is allowing them to be engaged participants in conversations about them.

Interesting. At the very least, this isn't good because things like this get students used to answering invasive questions outside of the parents' knowledge or permission.

Really super thankful for private school. If we didn't have private school, I'd homeschool. At least around here (rural public schools might be better, maybe out west, but I dunno.)

I taught my kids from an early age that when someone would ask these types of questions to tell them. None of your business.

Are tan uniforms with pretty armbands and neckerchiefs going to be the mandated school uniforms now?

Same here.

And keep in mind - from a psychological stand point, even though told it was not mandatory - many would feel that they had to answer UNLESS taught by their parents that it was OK NOT to answer these types of questions.

The "optional" part of this is BULLAngry

Agreed. Numerous studies indicate the majority of participants generally comply with requests or follow instructions even if they are uneasy about doing so, simply because an "authority figure" asked it of them.

Make no mistake about this; it has been a slow, inexorable process to condition the population to accept statism. It has been for decades now, and it accelerated with the 'Nam protests. Those campus radicals were groomed from day one to infiltrate and indoctrinate. They knew change would be difficult, but it would have to come from within. Those "hippies" are now our elected officials. They are patient and determined, even if it takes more than a generation to accomplish the control they seek.

Some of us "hippies" didn't drink the kool aid because we were inquisitive enough and smart enough to understand it was bullshit from day one. We could see the instigators/organizers pushing from behind. 'Nam reinforced our feelings that we couldn't trust the government, but we aren't willing to completely trash everything just to accomplish some good. Unfortunately, it may now come to that, but I don't see that happening without a serious upheaval. I do not know if the public has the stomach for it. I doubt that they do.
