Julian, yes... beaners. Hispanics are the ones that are law abiding. Show me any other group thatRead More tags as much as the young "hispanic" culture, in any meaningful amount, and I might think differently. Nothing racial about it, just factual.

Parents simply need to stop condoning to these types of actions the parents and their kids shouldRead More have consequences. P.s. people need to realize it's not only "beaners" but immature adolescents. There are plenty of of other races ( Caucasians, african-Americans) that tag as much as Hispanics! So GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!

“During the hike, the students learned about the many species that rely on habitats located inRead More El Sobrante Wildlife Preserve, such as the California gnatcatcher and Stephen’s kangaroo rat,” _________________________________________________ So the kids learned that the local dump has flies and rats? Dumps are still dumps, no matter what they're calling it today.

a field trip to the dump ....sounds like an episode of 'the simpsons'....

Sounds like a great idea for a field trip to me. Let's take advantage of real life LOCAL industriesRead More that might reduce the cost and hours spent in traffic, and let kids see the real nuts and bolts a community, how things work, where energy comes from, how things are made, etc.. and have the opportunity to connect to local mentors. Those kids probably have a new insight on where energy/ electricity can come from, that innovation is possible, and about wildlife habitats, which most kids are actually interested in. These are life changing lessons for a kid, much better than getting stuck on a bus for hours in traffic trying to get to some far-off museum or petting zoo. I say very good idea for field trip and let's keep up investigating our local resources !

@southernbelle, I don't think this is just a current situation with our kids. It's just now beingRead More addressed. It's always been there at an alarming rate....we now monitor it better with health care, social media and studies by health professionals and crime professionals.

@Jeff- I know it is not a current issue, but it is happening at a much greater rate, enveloping aRead More lot more youth than ever before. I agree that we are more educated in these issues and provide better management, but there are countless upon countless number of teens who are not being treated at all, who refuse to be treated due to stigma, or can't afford to be treated. It's tragic- the number of teens who are suffering.

Southernbelle, im late in reading your post, things got busy. But my kids have been coming homeRead More somewhat recently asking who God is. I try my hardest to keep it as fact, not pushing them to believe or not believe its true. And im fine with my 6 year old changing the channel to the shows about religion (as ive seen her do recently) because she wants to know what it is so many families have as part of their lives. I think my point is that kids are so excited about learning usually and they see it as a place where truth is brought to them. So i think if they were to learn religion in school, if it conflicts with their own, it could confuse them because it is a very complex subject. I mean, there are wars in the world over it. It is sensitive. I dont see why it is so offensive to keep it out of school at this point. My kids are growing up, theyre asking a lot of questions these past couple of years that are uncomfortable. Did you know that in i think its 5th grade kids have to get a signed permission slip to discuss puberty? In middle school and in highschool health class you get parental permission to sit in class to learn about sex and all that comes with it. Puberty and sex are things that will happen yet it is such a sensitive issue that the right is given to the parents first. Do kids talk about puberty and sex regardless? Of course. But to do it as part of education takes respect for these minors parents and guardians to determine. I know its not exactly the same thing as religion, but it is in the sense of importance and sensitivity for families.
TVOR February 27, 2014 at 09:08 am
I think we should limit what is taught in school to only a very basic overview of what religion isRead More and the most common religions of our time. It is not right to prevent students from expressing to other students their thoughts on the subject.
Sew Good February 27, 2014 at 11:06 am
I find it ironic that there is such uproar and hate over a kid making mention of Jesus in theRead More classroom while no one pays attention to what is in their child's curriculum. In middle school, my son's social studies class spent a month A MONTH on the history of Islam. They studied mosques, built mosques, and learned about the Koran. The book in use is being challenged for its inaccuracies but that doesn't stop anyone from teaching from it. This text actually credits Muslims for giving us the alphabet we use today. Not Arabians, Hebrews, or Phoenicians, but Muslims. Unfortunately, the same amount of time was not spent on the history of Christianity. And CB, I think it's sad that you are so afraid to teach your children about God. Maybe you could teach them how to learn and find information. God is not as complex as you'd like to make him out to be. I would suggest that you all learn who Jesus is first. Buddha and the Dalai Lama could offer your children some enlightenment, too. It certainly wouldn't hurt.

LEUSD is loaded with money to pay the high salaries for their overpaid staff, so why don't theRead More overpaid staff contribute to the good of the children along with the City of Lake Elsinore. I am not talking about the teachers, they work hard for what they earn.

The child was asked to share a Christmas tradition, not a holiday tradition.... and everybody pleaseRead More say aloud with me the first 6 letters in Christmas....That's right.... so it was very appropriate of her to do so. And Alek's child should have something of beauty to share about his religion, not hate. The atheists and agnostics can read a book in the library. We have destroyed society to please a few. Shame Shame on all of us for destroying morality for our desires. I went 2nd -12th grade in TVUSD and I was witness to Christmas parties being taken away and called holiday parties and then none at all, being able to dress up at Halloween and then that taken away, remember the pledge of allegiance and a flag hung in every class....all it takes is a generation and our children will be lost. My child is in TVUSD and he reads his bible for assignments all the time, and we make it very clear that he will continue to do so in public, private or where ever he wants and he will freely and openly talk about our religion if asked, he will not push it on anybody or use it to offend anybody. But he will not be silenced or have his religion insulted. I would hope that all of us parents would look back to our grand parents and further and regain the family values and culture they tried to teach us. The schools and society have brain washed us into thinking we are smarter than those who came before us...... look at the news, we are not.

Enroll your child at Bundy Canyon Christian School in Wildomar. Tuition is low and they use theRead More Abeka God-centered curriculum...every subject is taught from God's viewpoint and not man's or the worlds. And they love Jesus! Little Brynn can talk about her Christian God, her Christian Savior, her Christian family and her Christian values all day long! And she will be praised, encouraged and rewarded for doing so!!! God is not dead! He's surely alive...at Bundy Canyon Christian School!

Looks more and more like this "religion" controversy will not be ending until the GREATRead More JUDGEMENT DAY. God will be the One to decide who is right and who is wrong! Some will be in horror, some will be ecstatic! I will be in the ecstatic group.....I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE JESUS CHRIST MY LORD; HE DIED THAT WE MAY LIVE.....HE ROSE AGAIN AND TOOK FULL VICTORY AND ETERNAL LIFE IS NOW MINE! He knocks on the door of every heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANSWER before it is too late.

When the power goes out at the retail stores, the doors are closed (Wallmart, this past month) asRead More the cash registers would not work and the staff was not able to transact business manually: writing out a receipt and making change. The language of yesterday was cursive and in order to communicate with history, one must learn cursive. Communicating with History is just as important as communicating with a foreign speaking country. How does one tell the difference between an "X" written by Mr. A and an "X" written by Mr. B. The Education system has now made it easier for the forgers of tomorrow. Has anyone read the detailed logic of eliminating the craft and beauty of Cursive? One can also profile a person's character by his cursive writing. Can one profile based on block letters?

Common core is standardized by the federal government . They have no business sticking their nosesRead More in our healthcare let alone our education! A typical grammar assignment has kids underlining verbs in sentences like "Do you believe republicans are responsible for the government shutdown?". It dumbs our kids down by not developing critical thinking skills. There is nothing good about a curriculum coming from the current corrupt obama administration. People are pulling their kids out of school in droves just as teachers are quitting.. That alone speaks volumes...
Andria November 11, 2013 at 08:51 am
The 10th Amendment of the US Constitution gives education to the states and the people. However,Read More the Federal Government knows that all they have to do is offer incentives to the states and they can get most states to give up powers. If we don't like Common Core or any other areas of federal overreach, change who you elect at the state level. Here's another aspect of the cons of Common Core that the Patch article didn't mention. http://whatiscommoncore.wordpress.com/

Thank you for that link Andria. I think these things should be left to state and local people. ItRead More is just another area of micromanaging by the federal government or should I say the know-it-all liberals who don't trust anyone. This is another reason why I left the democrat party and became an independent.
