    The superintendent of a public school that sparked a federal lawsuit by teaching homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten has told another worried parent he can review course material, but he has no right to withdraw his child from class during lessons.

    His subsequent lawsuit resulted in a court verdict that essentially concludes parents have no rights to control what their children are taught.

    The ruling from the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals essentially concluded that it is no burden on parents' free exercise of religion to have their children taught ideas at a public school that violate the parents' religious teachings. (no burden?)

    God holds each one of us accountable for our children's education, and these federal courts are undermining everyone with contrary moral convictions....hill

    CPS needs to be contacted about this Teacher. They cannot act until they receive a report.

    There are private and parochial schools to send one's child to if he/she doesn't like what is being taught in public schools. Christians should seriously consider this option.

    I agree, but: As fast as they are trying to enact this agenda, they are trying to cut off alternative schooling, including home schooling....They want our children's minds.

    Yes, John Dewey would be so happy with the way our government schools are going. The class room is where so many lose their children and then ask what happen.

    Hopefully this idiotic decision will be reversed.
