A new teacher in OUR SCHOOLS
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said: "Let me see if I've got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages and instill in them a love for learning.You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self-esteem and personal pride. You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a check book, and apply for a job.You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and ensure that they all pass their final exams. You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicap and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Arabic or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card. You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for "New Start.”You want me to do all this, and then you tell me......I CAN'T wear a necklace with a little cross, mention God, or say "Merry Christmas" because someone might take offense? " Well, you know what you can do with your job........We all should have the same rights, whatever your religion. This should be posted in every school in America and all countries. Think about it! If Muslims can pray anywhere, why are Christians banned from praying in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days? What happened to our National Day of Prayer? Muslims are allowed to block off major streets, in all American States and pray in the middle of the street! And it's a monthly ritual!Tell me, again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?
I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having 'God' in our education system or the Lord's Prayer said in our government, schools or public meetings. I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe! PLEASE HAVE THE INTESTINAL FORTITUDE TO PASS THIS ONE TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK. If you agree, pass this on; if not, delete it. Support America . . .
