NEA: Reading, Writing, and Orgasms??

March 8, 2011

As Barbara Hollingsworth points out in the Washington Examiner, education funding in the United States has doubled since the Seventies, yet many students are still not reaching basic levels of reading and math.

Not to worry, however, because the National Education Association is concentrating on what’s really important: making sure girls know how to have an orgasm:

A representative of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest teachers union, recently told attendees at a United Nations conference on the status of women that “oral sex, masturbation, and orgasms need to be taught in education” worldwide. […]

Diane Schneider, the NEA reprepsentative, didn’t explain what such graphic sex education for middle-schoolers has to do with helping women and girls gain access to “education, training, science and technology” – the theme of this year’s Commission on the Status of Women.

I think Barbara is being a bit harsh here. Surely this meets the science goal — at least in biology.

I wonder what’s on the curriculum for PE at these schools: lap dances and pole dancing?

Another smear cleaned up

September 7, 2008

Like vampires suddenly shown a cross, so-called Progressives have hissed and clawed in impotent rage since John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. They’ve floated all sorts of rumors about her and resorted to slander to try to dent her genuine popularity. They’ve even gone after her family. Now those who fear her for her religion have used her daughter’s pregnancy to slam her for favoring abstinence-only sex education in the schools. The implication is that she’s some sort of Christian Right hypocrite who would rather girls get pregnant or contract a venereal disease than let them be taught about contraception.

Except that isn’t true.

It’s amazing what a meltdown one woman can cause. Maybe the liberal, tolerant Left should stop and take a breath. Time out
