Just ask Harris County ESD9 Commissioner, Scott Debour.
His 4th grade son, who attends Moore Elementary in Cy-Fair ISD, brought home this “writing” assignment yesterday.
Simple enough…read a passage and find the errors in capitalization, punctuation, spelling and grammar.
No problem, until his dad read the passage…
…and found “writing” being used to push the liberal animal rights agenda on his 4th grade son.
You can read the full passage here.
Or read just a few lines…and you will get the idea…
- “If you ask me, I believe zoos should close…
- “Another example of mistreatment at zoos is the chimps…”
- “Another chimp named Mimi knows over 300 words in sign language. She’s as smart as a 2 year old. So if chimps are kept in zoos, why aren’t toddlers…”
- “That’s why I believe all zoos are not animal friendly and should be closed down.”
Because most Houstonians would describe it as a wonderful zoo.
Not only are the animals living in natural habitats…
First, make an appointment with your child’s teacher to preview the materials which will be used this school year. If you find assignments you feel are inappropriate for you child, request an “alternate assignment.” One in which your child learns the same skills, without the left wing bias.
Second, read the assignments your child brings home. If you still find issues, you can work your way up the chain of command – the school principal, curriculum director, superintendent, school board – but that could take months.
If you want faster results, read the problematic lessons to the school board during public testimony at their monthly meetings. Then send the lessons to your State Representative and State Senator so they have examples of the left wing lessons being taught in Texas public schools.
