Wrong with schools

Do we really not know what the problems are in our schools?

I went to school from 1953-1965 and there were no school shootings or drug problems. Why?

We were taught morality, right from wrong, and to respect God, church, country, school, and home. Do we not realize the world is comprised of two forces -- good and evil.

Remove the good and the evil sets in with a vengence. We have removed God from the schools and stripped our teachers of being allowed to discipline our children, and now we are reaping the consequences. Our children can't pray or read the Bible in school but they are allowed to swear at their teachers. We have allowed our children to watch the most violent movies and now we have further desensitized them with hand-held video games. They think people get shot and get right back up! We have raised a generation of kids on drugs who are now raising kids. Do you think this situation will get better?

Once people hung their heads in shame when they did something wrong. Today the kids are taught to believe what is wrong is right and what is right is wrong. The truth is, we do need God in this country. Keep pushing him out and things will continue to get worse.
