A fellow parishioner told me about an incident in our public high school last night that has me quite upset. The social studies/government teacher has pro-choice posters displayed in her classroom. When the parent went to talk to the principal about the offensiveness of these posters, he advised her to talk directly to the teacher. She took her son with her for the meeting with the teacher. The teacher dismissed the mother and told her she wasn’t interested in what she had to say but what her son had to say.
I am so angry about this situation! The parents are so upset and don’t know where to turn to next. They are asking for input on how to deal with this.
I have a son who will be entering this school next year. The closest Catholic high school is too far away to drive everyday.
