Forgive me the Johnny-Come-Lately,
I guess I was very blessed when it comes to public schooling. My HS was stocked with dedicated, caring teachers who always were there for kids who needed extra tutoring. Regarding respect of teachers, I was also blessed to have parents who wouldn't tolerate any disrespect towards my educators at all.
It's my opinion that in constantly criticizing teachers, who try as they might, can't make everyone happy (particularly teachers of Literature, History, and Science). This spills over into the students' minds that teachers are atheistic, anti-American, racist subversives; and as such undeserving of attention or respect.
Nah, you aren't late!
It's not the issue really with the disrespect towards teachers. I do myself believe that most teachers are honorable and want to teach the students. However I do feel that many teachers are blind and/or restrained because they have had their hands tied.
God is not allowed in public school.
GOD IS NOT ALLOWED IN PUBLIC SCHOOL!!!!
let me think of another reason.
GOD IS NOT ALLOWED IN PUBLIC SCHOOL!
There is nothing else that matters other than that point. An "education" begins in God, ends in God, and is filled with God - to leave God out is to violate a child's identity, capabilities, and moral character for a lifetime.
Smaller issues are:
Curriculum that is secular.
Curriculum that is often funded by the Rockerfeller foundation. (Biased)
History books that are often only written by the victors. (In my High School education - Where did the native Americans go again??)
Science & the Big Bang, without God involved, evolution taught which leads to atheism.
Health - There is no soul. Sex ed about homosexuality being natural.
English - Death - The Raven. Death - Julius Caesar. Death - Mask of the Red Death. Death - MacDeath
. Death - Romeo & Juliet. Moral value? Lessons of virtue? Oh, but we may be taught Chivalry without Christ as we go through King Aurthur's fiction.
Math - Cool.
SO it's not the teachers per se, its everything that school doesn't teach. About God, Love, Contentment, Stable Family values, or teachings of Christ.
