Now, I have the greatest admiration for the teaching profession. It’s an honorable one. But there’s a lot of experimentation going on in schools led by educators who are long on idealism and short on common sense. The objects of this experimentation are your kids. And the law of unintended consequences has seen your sons and daughters expecting babies, infected with disease, or carted off to the abortion clinic.
The image of a couple of high-school girls in a science lab struggling to put a condom on a banana tells me that some wisdom is missing from the system. We should take more interest in what is going on in our schools, whether we are parents or not. These are good people teaching your children, but they need your help and involvement—giving the educational process a good dose of common sense.
Meanwhile, from a parent’s perspective, is there something that might be taught alongside sex education that could make a difference? I have two important ideas from a biblical perspective—one for sons and one for daughters.
