What's Being Taught in Schools Today

I shake my head in utter dismay,
at what's being taught in schools today.

"We're just being inclusive," is what you say,
but you're teaching children pedophilia's okay.

You took a woman's right to privacy away;
you've increased her chances of being raped today.

You're making children feel guilty,
for being white; which I tell you isn't right.

You're making black children feel like they're oppressed;
why are you so race-obsessed?

Racism still exists, I can clearly see,
but it isn't like what it used to be.

I have no problem with you teaching children that racism is wrong,
nor teaching the history of its very song.

However, indoctrinating children isn't right;
Don't think parents will give up their children without a fight.

    Brother Jacob, I studied your poem and analyzed it minutely. Written in a form of couplets, it's truly inspiring. I am a teacher, I found the truth that you have depicted precisely in the poem. Sir, it depends how we present the facts and analyze it in front of the students.

    A strong Sunday school and church that preaches the gospel will alter this and reading His Word will make you a winner ! Many churches now have their schools !
