Parents divided in opinion

Tallahassee Democrat [FL], by Ryan Dailey

Posted By:Ribicon, 9/21/2017 1:02:40 PM

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group

Elementary school teacher sends home a note announcing that she´s mentally ill, and the school principal says he´s in full support. Only some parents are alarmed, if not up in arms?

Reinforcing bad grammar should be a reason to fire this teacher. Their, they, them are plural referring to groups and not individuals.

If I had a child in her class I would pull him or her out. The job of a Teacher is to PREPARE a Student to go out into the world. To PREPARE them to succeed in the Workplace. To succeed in being a Parent. WHY in the world should this person teach what SHE thinks is proper. She should be FIRED and someone who follows a Lesson Plan should replace her.

This nonsense surely wastes taxpayer monies - the ´teachers´ are supposed to be covering reading, writing and arithmetic over and over until the children can perform them well. I don´t add American history since these leftard chimps don´t know the correct version.

The left has won. Our culture and our country have lost. It only gets worse from here on out. Is there any ´leadership´ speaking out about this Marxist clap trap? No. I didn´t think so. Anarchy is what the left wants. And they have succeeded without firing a shot. Well, not as many shots (mostly at the cops) as you would have thought it would have taken. And what better way for them to succeed than to inculcate our schools full of young minds full of mush. We are toast. America is toast. Now its Amerika, waiting to be nuked.

Yeah, I´d be divided in opinion too.

I´d have a hard time deciding whether:

To fire her and see that she is never hired by any school again.

Or :

To fire her. then Tar & feather her and ride her out of town on a rail, then see that she is never hired by any school again.

If she´s concerned that all students feel comfortable and have a place to be themselves in her classroom, then I´m sure she´ll be fine with students using the pronouns their parents prefer they use. Right? And the Principal will equally be fine with the students doing what they´re comfortable with even if it´s he/she, him/her. Right?

I´m a woman who used to be a guy, (that´s another story, but put in here for context) This "teacher" is a total bonehead and most likely one of those pushy liberal looser types, who insist (demand) that in the name of diversity you do as they say.
I say they give a very bad name to the rest of my community. Their actions and demands are so very far over the mark. Pull out your children and go to another school.

Because #9 that is what has been happening since Carter created the Dept. of Education, the unions were allowed control of the teachers and tenure. The Dept. of Education should be dismantled, the unions shown the door and tenure cancelled. That would be a start.

Hilarious. In Lambert´s quote supporting the teacher, he uses ´she and ´her´ about half a dozen times in direct conflict with what they wants. And so this one teacher has engineered the bastardization of the previous sentence. You see - it´s not enough to prefer a custom handle to suit your innermost comfort levels, one must change the language and impressionable minds as well. So let Mx Bressack be addressed as such, and in other contexts as simply Mx. Leave the language alone. As #1 points out - the other words have inappropriate meanings when referring to mx.

The gender-neutral pronoun would be ´it.´ Why does it have a problem with ´it´? At least the use of ´it´ doesn´t mess with the kids´ understanding of singular and plural pronouns.

Can this woman be trusted not to go berserk if a student correctly calls her Miss or Mrs.?

Before she can claim gender neutrality, she should submit a DNA sample to prove it.

As noted earlier, the PC principal doesn´t even know how to address "they" properly.

It will never "feel" natural because it´s NOT natural. Imagine being a child with a learning disability struggling to learn in a classroom where the teacher demands to be referred to as "they." It´s shocking that we´ve reached a point in this country where the wants of the teacher trump the needs of the children.

WHY must normal people genuflect to the dysfunctional among us? Why do some demand special treatment for the dysfunctional?
Are they more equal that the rest of us?
How about: just STOP telling normal people how to act, how to feel and how to think. STOP it.

I reject Mx. I might accept "it." But #4, I don´t accept that premise, although I agree that it feels that way sometimes. The public schools are losing more and more students each year. parents are wising up to what is going on in the public schools and they don´t like it.
The ps district here has not had a bond issue pass in nine years. Meanwhile a charter school, that just stated 5 years ago, has already built a $5 mil HS. Last year the the district went all out on it´s requests and asked for a whopping $300 mil bond and asked if the community would not approve that at least pass an $11 mil for raises and bonuses, then hired an expensive PR firm to sell it. Both went down in flames. That sort of thing has been going on all over the country. There is a reason for the online school, charter schools the demand for school vouchers, the home schooling. Take heart elect the right people to the Bd of Ed. It may not be visible but it is happening all over the country. There is a reason you see more of this coming from the ps, that´s all that is left at the ps. The good people are getting their children out of there.

I always wondered about the "female" history teacher I had in 11th grade. Looked like a guy, with a heavy beard (clean shaven, but that Homer Simpson look) and wore a mumu type rig every day. Angry, mean sort of person. I was happy to only spend half a year in that school. Never did figure "her" out, definitely looked like pi**ed off hairy guy in a dress. This would have been in middle 60s.

There are really some strange people out there running loose.

Republican Roy Moore refused to conceded the special election race after news networks called the race for Democrat Doug Jones, saying the race is “not over” and that God is on his side. Mr. Moore and his campaign said the margin of Mr. Jones’ lead is likely to trigger a recount under state law because could end up being less than half a percentage point. “When the vote is this close, it is not over,” Mr. Moore told his supporters at his election night rally.

Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clinton’s 20-plus plane rides on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”

President Trump pressured congressional Democrats Saturday to drop their demands for amnesty for young illegal immigrants as part of a year-end spending deal, saying their insistence on protecting illegals is part of a liberal mindset that led to the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. “Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on sanctuary cities,” Mr. Trump said in his weekly address. “Now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government, holding troop funding hostage and putting our national security at risk. We cannot allow it.”

Exclusive — RNC Jumps Back into
Alabama Race Behind Judge Roy Moore

Mobile, Alabama — The Republican National Committee (RNC) is now again backing Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The RNC’s decision to now publicly support Moore again comes in the wake of President Donald Trump’s wholehearted endorsement of Moore on Monday morning. (Snip) Throughout this process, since the Washington Post published frivolous evidence-free allegations against Moore, the RNC’s position has closely mirrored the White House position on Moore. At first, the RNC held out criticism or withdrawal of support while the president was overseas in Asia on a multi-day, multi-country trip.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares last month asked federal taxpayers to shell out $94 billion to pay for the territory’s recovery from Hurricane Maria — then turned around and paid out about $100 million in Christmas bonuses to island government employees. The governor’s aides say the bonuses are a longstanding tradition and part of the law, and were planned for in the budget approved last summer. But that budget came well before Hurricanes Irma and Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving much of the territory in ruin and leaving the government begging for federal assistance.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is still fired up about President Trump’s tweet mocking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and took her frustrations out on first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. “[Trump] should have apologized for being a sexist pig,” Brzezinski said. “And the women around him, his wife, who has a platform against cyber bullying, that’s a joke. That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.” Brzezinski then shifted her attention to Ivanka Trump, “Who came to Washington… to develop a platform for women,” but has stood by her father. “Go home. You’re doing nothing if you stand

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:

Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out
