It has recently come to my attention that Racine Unified has a curriculum unit entitled "Accepting others makes life better."
Oh really, we should just accept everyone and life will be better. Hmmmm, how about child pornographers. Will the lives of Racine Unified students be better if they learned to accept child pornographers? Obviously not.
So which "others" should we accept to make our lives better? Now we already know that Unified has taught that the acceptance of a certain liberal black presidential candidate would make their lives better. And I'm quite certain that the "others" to be accepted include minorities, women, Muslims, gays etc....
But I am also curious about the other "others." You know, the ones not mentioned during the "Acceptance of others makes life better" unit. Are the students also being taught that accepting Christians or conservatives will make their lives better?
Somehow I doubt it.
By the way, I learned of this curriculum unit at Racine Post: http://news.racinepost.com/2008/11/racine-unified-no-policies-violated-in.html
