On TVO’s “The Agenda,” Steve Paikin amassed a number of disgruntled teachers who felt they had been unjustly vilified and wanted to air their grievances. As one who has worked in the public sector most of his career, I have been careful not to group all teachers together – thus stressing (as I will here) my sentiments are reserved for the union itself and those who adopt the union position carte blanche. I distinguish between willing cogs in the wheel of corruption as opposed to the workers and clients being rolled over by said wheel. Here’s what the cogs had to say for themselves.

An NJ school board has suspended a teacher for talking Christianity with a student, and giving him a Bible. This was all at the initiation of the student, not the teacher, but the stalinist protocol for protectionism at this humanist gov’t school still kicked in. They can’t protect students from bullying. They won’t protect them from sex and STDs. But, come hell or high water, they’ll protect them from Christianity!!

Student behaviour is one of the biggest problems facing government schools. All kinds of tactics are being tried to improve attendance and behaviour.

Below is a brief excerpt from Leaving God Behind. We expect to be able to send the final proof to the printer next week so they can prepare a draft version of the book for us to approve. It is exciting to be able to make this important work available to Canadians. When we see what God has done in this nation in the past, we will hopefully be inspired to believe God for great things in the future.

Is fundraising an act of treason?
One of the few ways in which people today can contribute directly to their children’s government schooling, which is to say, exercise direct personal responsibility in the system, is to participate in school fundraisers.

The Bible is a very dangerous book
Why is the Hamilton government school board banning Bible distribution?
Because they say the Bible is a dangerous book.
This is an amazing testimony. Even many – most? – Christians today don’t see the Bible as a dangerous book.
