The problem with the institution is deep. Way-down in the ground deep. But parents think that the problems are external and on the surface. They think that if they can muster what little power they have against one of the new outcroppings of the issues that are deep in the ground and out of plain sight, then they might salvage the school system. But that’s not going to happen.
What was simply obvious only a few years ago, that is that boys are boys and that girls are girls, is not considered obvious by the elite who run the schoolhouse today. They have disconnected themselves from a reference point and have set themselves adrift on the sea of self-delusion. Now, for them, up is down, right is wrong, good is evil. And these are the people who run your children’s school. And if the particular person who runs your children’s school has not quite gotten there yet, you can know that he answers to people who are there. The problem is deep down. It comes from the root. Your child’s principle is at the leafy end of the problem at best.
Here we have a story of a delusional man, John Dryden, who apparently walked out of a meeting with parents, who were not happy with the boys using their girl’s locker room, to write this on his Facebook page:
Sometimes School Board meetings are like Mr. Toad’s wild ride. (Enjoy it on BATV) You can watch me try really hard not to launch myself over the table and strangle an anti-transgender lynch mob. The Board Comments at the end are worth listening to. Cheers Batavia – let’s move ahead, not backwards….
In Dryden’s defense, I am quick to add that he is only regurgitating what was driven into his head daily for a decade and a half of being indoctrinated by the institution. And he is only one out of the hordes of others who exist and function in the institution from root to leaf. Sure, parents might make a fuss and get whatever they are not liking at the moment stopped for a bit. But these people are warriors for “progress.” They were programmed to continue in the face of opposition. It is a losing battle, and the winner gets the children’s minds no less.
But there is another option. Raise and teach your children yourself. If the stories that come daily are not enough to convince you that the institution is no place for your child, then I would suggest taking a strong look at your values.
