Waterloo Catholic School Board and Teachings on Homosexuality

This is relevant given the current sex ed debate

Does the current General Secretary of the ACBO (former Director of Ed for WCDSB) agree with the following being taught to students in Catholic schools?

Also, many other teachers in other school boards may also be teaching similar material. WCDSB just happens to be the Board that publishes its lessons more than others! OCSB is locked up pretty tight!

Another reason why ACBO and ICE are in support of GenderID sex ed?

Roger Lawler is now the General Secretary of the ACBO (Conference of Bishops of Ontario). Previous to that he was Director of Education for the most noncatholic catholic school board in Ontario (#OCSB runs second according to experts I have talked with about a ranking system)

Wouldn’t a quote like the following raise HUGE alarm bells at the ACBO before hiring him?

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/catholic-school-board-committee-approves-pro-gay-manual-does-not-teach-homo

Lawler spoke of legitimate differences of opinion on matters of “faith and morals”. “Faith and one’s understanding of faith is not static. As we learned and have been taught as a Post-Vatican II people, we are a Church with rich diversity,” he wrote. Adding: “Diversity also can bring about differences of opinion in areas like theology, faith, and morals. This is natural and healthy for a living, dynamic Church.”

Now Roger Lawler is hoodwinking organizations like the CWL on the new sex ed curriculum. Follow Archbishop Prendergast on this matter, not Mr Lawler!

The triumvirate of Lawler along with Pautler of ICE (Former Director of Education at Halton; also known for presenting a paper discussing “discerning a same sex orientation”) and Julian Hanlon (soon to leave as Director of Ed for the #OCSB to be Exec Director of the Canadian catholic School Trustees – CCSTA) needs to watched carefully.

I don’t know this triumvirate of men personally and I am sure they have good intentions. However, I will NOT be entrusting the souls of my children to Lawler/Pautler/Hanlon!

catholic organizations selling out the souls of #Catholic children!

Just 3 weeks after Archbishop Prendergast came out SHARPLY against the new Ontario Sex Ed program (knowing that ICE would be able to add a little commentary to it), ICE and Cardinal Collins are fine with it!

https://catholicintelligenceblog.wordpress.com/2015/02/02/will-ocsb-obey-archbishop-or-pharaoh-wynne-on-sex-ed/

ICE

ICE is going to take money from Wynne to develop a little commentary around the evil curriculum which a DIAMETRICALLY opposed to Catholism!  Wynne won’t pay for anything she disagrees with! It will just be a few words about “social justice” and Catholic graduate expectations. ICE’s statement is insulting edu-babble.

Education Minister Sandals said this: ” that while the Catholic school system will be able to provide “commentary” on the government-mandated sex-ed through its own family life program, it won’t be allowed to change anything and must “deliver” the sex-ed as written.”

This whole “through a Catholic lens” is a farce. You cannot take something like gender ideology and clean it up with a few words like “social justice” and “dignity of the person”. Enough with the Euphemisms!

http://torontocatholicwitness.blogspot.ca/2015/02/ontarios-new-sexual-education-program.html

ICE also seems proud of their current Fully Alive program. It has been a DISASTER! In Ottawa, Catholic students have intercourse a full 8 months before Public Grads (UO study). See my post on “Sex Ed Bad and getting worse”

There has been a lot of criticism about FA.  eg. Bishop Danylak and Msgr Foy:

Save your children from this abomination! ICE, OECTA, CARFLEO, Ben Levin, Sandals, Wynne, and Cardinal Collins are all wrong on this issue! Listen to your heart, Archbishop Prendergast, Pope Pius XI, Pope JP2, Pope Francis etc. Gender Ideology is demonic!

PS: Here is a petition: https://www.lifesitenews.com/petitions/stop-ontarios-graphic-sex-ed

More info on the curriculum: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/a-grade-by-grade-breakdown-of-kathleen-wynnes-graphic-new-sex-ed-program

Go to 1:22 and check out the “non-binary pansexual” girl who was a catholic high school student:

“catholic” trustees association was also in bed with Liberals on Gay/GenderID sex ed!

Before we go to that, please see this video:

==========

Now to our story:

Bob Schreader, vice-president of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association. That group and the Institute for Catholic Education supported the curriculum throughout its development.

“As a Catholic community, we’re going to ensure our children get that information, but we are going to do it through a Catholic lens,” Mr. Schreader said.

=========

So, it looks like a pretty good sweep of “Catholic”” groups supporting the new sex ed curriculum. OCSTA, ICE, OECTA, OAPCE, etc.

Even Liz Sandals doesn’t think parents will rebel against this because she is dismissive of parents who remain in the government school system:

“As for parental backlash, Sandals seems unconcerned: “Given that we haven’t had hordes of people withdrawing from the public education system given what’s already in the curriculum, to be perfectly honest, I don’t anticipate that happening.””

When Schreader of the catholic Trustees association uses the “through a Catholic lens”, this is simply a euphemism for “we’ll add a few words about Gospel values and social justice”. It does NOT mean that gay marriage and gender identity ideology will be called diabolical as Pope Francis has called them!

————–

ICE also were in bed with the Liberals when the almost identical sex ed curriculum was introduced:

http://www.catholic-legate.com/how-i-c-e-and-its-ontario-allies-let-catholics-down/

“There is no doubt that the Ministry [in 2010] consulted with Catholic education officials. In an interview with Life Site News a Ministry spokeswoman, Patricia MacNeil, “emphasized that the strategy was developed in conjunction with the Institute for Catholic Education.” Sr. Joan Cronin, in turn, confirmed that she had been included in the process:  “I think that Catholic education has always been about equity and inclusivity,” she said”

Parents: please use this Lent to pray for courage to sacrifice even more for the souls of your children!

St Peter’s “Rainbow Day” #OCSB

I have written about this day before. We know the SPK Love is Louder group is a radical pro-gay advocacy group

LoveisLouderJoeRogers Love is Louder 1 Love is Louder (1) Love is Louder Following these groupsSPK Love is Louder happy to radical gay

The Chaplain at SPK wrongly interprets this week’s reading about the Rainbow covenant made with Moses

Rainbow2
God simply promised NOT to destroy the entire human race. He did not promise “acceptance of all”, In fact, after the Moses convenant, He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. He almost destroyed Nineveh. There are lots of other examples. Also, part of the Rainbow convenant with Moses was to
“Go Forth any Multiply”. The Rainbow covenant is NOT about Gay sex

Here is Father Just:

http://catholic-resources.org/Bible/Covenants.htm

It is sad to see the SPK “chaplain” refuse to “think WITH the Church” (Sentire cum ecclesia) and to use political LGBT ideologies to misinform students!

SPK rainbow day

OECTA unsurprisingly comes out to support new Gay Sex ed etc #ocsb

No surprise that the World-Pride-marching OECTA loves the new curriculum on gay marriage, gender fluidity etc

cohn

It is also no surprise that the Toronto Red Star (remember they are run by the “Atkinson Principles”) was leaked the new sex ed curriculum last week. Writer Cohn whitewashes the curriculum and then insults parents. He also doesn’t mention parts like gay marriage and gender bending (both labelled demonic by Pope Francis)

http://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2015/02/21/revealed-the-sex-ed-update-ontario-badly-needs-cohn.htmlcohn2

As I reported yesterday, ICE (Institute for Catholic Education) has been co-opted by the sneaky Liberals. Despite the tough warnings on the sex ed programme by Archbishop Prendergast, ICE (run by a committee of ACBO Bishops led by relatively liberal Bishop Bergie from St Catharines) is preparing to introduce the sex ed curriculum this fall!!

ICE is run by the former Director of Halton Catholic School Board, Michael Pautler. He gave a talk last year with the rather bizarre description about “discerning a same-sex orientation”. I have heard about discerning the priesthood, but discerning to enter into the gay lifestyle?

http://www.catholiccurriculumcorp.org/2014Program.pdf

Pautler

The CBC has also reported on the new sex ed:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/new-ontario-sex-ed-curriculum-to-include-look-at-sexting-risks-1.2966644

“The guide advises parents that blocking Internet content is “typically ineffective” for older children and youth, and says the focus should be on helping kids develop skills for thinking critically about what they see online.”

“The reintroduced curriculum is not expected to show a marked departure from what was proposed in 2010. It will teach kids about homosexuality and same-sex marriages in Grade 3, encourage discussions about puberty, including masturbation, in Grade 6, and talk about preventing sexually transmitted diseases in Grade 7, which could include information on oral and anal sex.”

===

So, let’s just give 12 year old boys I-Phones with no parental controls and let them “think critically” when they view porn!! Grrrr

Expect a big push from the mainstream media, ICE, OECTA, OCSB etc insulting faithful Catholic parents for being “prudes”. Have courage and ignore it and their whitewashed info! Do not be frogs in slowly warming water

Boiling_Frogs_Pic_-_resized

Instead read quotes like below about what one should be doing for their children

Education quotes <– pdf of Education quotes

Divini Illius Magistri, 35 Reinforces the grave obligation of parents as the primary educators of their
 
children to refuse schools that threaten salvation of souls. “…as Leo XIII declares in another
 
memorable encyclical, where He thus sums up the rights and duties of parents: ‘By nature parents
 
have a right to the training of their children, but with this added duty that the education and
 
instruction of the child be in accord with the end for which by God’s blessing it was begotten.
 
Therefore it is the duty of parents to make every effort to prevent any invasion of their rights in this
 
matter, and to make absolutely sure that the education of their children remain under their own
 
control in keeping with their Christian duty, and above all to refuse to send them to those schools in
 
which there is danger of imbibing the deadly poison of impiety.’” (Emphasis added.)

OAPCE and Sex Ed #ocsb #onted #ottnews

OAPCE is a  group in bed with the pro-World Gay pride OECTA and the Lieberals! They are a front group.

See the following NP article.

What is very worrisome is that ICE looks ready to sell out faithful Catholic parents and let the radical sex ed curriculum into state-run catholic schools this September (private Catholic schools are NOT affected)

http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/02/20/ontarios-new-sex-ed-will-cover-homosexuality-masturbation-and-consent-not-everyones-saying-yes/

“It’s an anxiety Brian Evoy, president of the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education, has recently heard.

“I’ve spoken to parents who’ve called me, and had this fear that their kids were going to be taught things they didn’t want to be taught,” he says. Grandparents have also expressed concerns that children are being taught about “free sex.”

His organization was part of the consultations on the updated sex-ed curriculum, he says, and the process was a positive one. He’s confident the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE) will find ways to interpret the curriculum so it makes sense for Catholic students.

“I don’t have a crystal ball and can’t tell you it’s going to be embraced by everyone,” he says. “But our organization is very much in favour of the curriculum and all of the changes that will be made.””

 Do NOT trust OAPCE or OECTA or ICE! Any words that ICE has to “nuance” anal sex or gender fluidity will not be satisfactory. Save the souls of your children!

Instead, listen to the words of Archbishop Prendergast:

Is it ok for #OCSB chaplains to claim “Clergy Tax Deduction”? #ottnews

A science teacher has complained that school “chaplaincy leaders” are sometimes claiming the substantial “clergy tax deduction”. (Remember, priests that claim this make less than $25,000/yr)

Should Board Superintendents be signing the necessary forms? An interesting questions that a tax accountant or lawyer or the CRA should answer.

Bishops are the only legitimate authority to appoint or ordain
ministers. I am NOT aware of Bishops appointing or ordaining
Chaplains” in Catholic schools.

They specifically state that they do NOT give mandates to school “Chaplains”!

mandates

pastoral_letter_on_chaplaincy <– PDF from Bishops

The Catholic chaplains themselves (CSC0) say the crux of the matter is whether they are “mandated”:

http://www.csco.ca/documents/content_467.pdf

“David brought up the issue of the Clergy Residency Tax Deduction. The
deduction is significant for many chaplains. The CRA has clarified
that it applies to women and lay people and is not challenging it in
any way. Anne-Marie Tedesco asked if it applies to teacher –
chaplains. David said he wasn’t sure. Paul Maine-Devine offered to
give a workshop on this after this meeting. David went over the
history of a challenge to it from one of the boards. The executive has
contacted a tax lawyer and canon lawyer. The issue remains unresolved
in some boards. The crux of the matter is whether or not we are
‘mandated’ by the bishop to do the work we do. David asked that
members let the executive know if their supervisors start refusing to
sign the forms.”

—————
The question is whether a commissioning ceremony or having a Bishop’s representative at job interviews is anywhere close to a “mandate”.

See below
http://csco.ca/documents/content_96.doc
“appointed or recognized by a body or person with the legitimate
authority to appoint  or ordain ministers on behalf of or within the
religious denomination”. The appointment of school chaplains is done
by the Catholic school boards by virtue of the recognized place of
these boards within the Catholic community. In addition, the local
Bishops give their recognition of the school chaplains in a variety of
ways.  Some bishops conduct commissioning ceremonies for their school
chaplains; others may give specific approval (through the school
board) of each chaplaincy appointment); and all of them, in a general
or specific way, apply a nihil obstat to the appointment of the
chaplains by the school boards.  ”

—–

Nice Latin words “Nihil Obstat”, but they apply to book publishing not appointments – there is no “Nihil Obstat” in Canon Law for jobs. Sounds nice and sophisticated though!

——

CRA rules:
http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/tp/it141r-consolid/it141r-consolid-e.txt

“Paragraph 5. A “regular minister” is a person who is

– authorized or empowered to perform spiritual duties, conduct religious
services, administer sacraments and carry out similar religious functions.
Religious functions may include participation in the conduct of religious
services, the administration of some of the rituals, ordinances or sacraments,
and pastoral responsibilities to specific segments of the religious
organization;
is appointed or recognized by a body or person with the legitimate authority
to appoint or ordain ministers on behalf of or within the religious
denomination; and
– is in a position or appointment of some permanence.

Paragraph 6. In the absence of a legitimate appointment or recognition, the
mere performance of the duties of a minister will not suffice to constitute a
“regular minister”. ”

http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=29a2c66f-d27b-4b4b-894f-5bebe8143b42

Perhaps, the bigger issue is why some school chaplaincy leaders think of themselves as clergy that are in any way equivalent to our holy priests! And why do School Boards?

Edit: The following CSCO document TOTALLY doesn’t address the point about  “is appointed or recognized by a body or person with the legitimate authority to appoint or ordain ministers on behalf of or within the religious
denomination”. School boards do not have legitimate authority to appoint ministers!

Extreme Secrecy at #OCSB

A friend of the CIA (and a devoted follower of St Joshua) did an FOI and shared the results with us.

Some observations:

1) For an “open and transparent” organization, the OCSB loved to black things out!! Why would an entire agenda be blacked out? Are the OCSB dealing with Russian or Chinese spy infiltration? I have seen less redaction on CSIS documents! Does the OCSB not realize that taxpayers have the RIGHT to information.

2) They are starting to do more and more phone conversations that cannot be FOIed. This might be something my friend might take up with the Provincial FOI authorities.

3) The gay newspaper, Daily Xtra seems mighty upset that the material those 2 GSA girls at St George’s “Gay rights” social justice fair might actually present may be made public by an insider at St George’s. They do NOT want parents to find out what is being shown to our children!

4) The OCSB seems to relieved that my 2 children have in fact graduated from St Matthew’s – does this lessen the FACTS on my blog in any way whatsoever??

Have #ocsb students been asked to declare jihad?

CARFLEO continues to whitewash Islam. I have previously written about their material in Grade 11 “World Religions”

Here is some material that says that there is only ONE definition of Jihad (struggle to make oneself a better Muslim, good works) and that Catholic students should make jihad

CARFLEO which has trouble recognizing that there IS one central authority in Catholicism, has no trouble pushing the false belief that there IS a central authority in Islam and that they can authoritatively define Jihad.

In fact, large portions of Muslims DO believe that Jihad includes violence. Some surveys show 20% or more (with significant numbers of North American muslims,

http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=26661

OCSB students will be unable to fully understand the threat that violent Islam poses to Canada as they declare their own Jihad as an “exit ticket” from their course on Islam

#OCSB and “Christian” Meditation

We know that the OCSB is pushing yoga, Zen, and “Christian” meditation. These are very dangerous spiritually and is one reason why Catholic school grads turn less to God for help in decisions than Public school grads (documented in Cardus research). Why do more Catholic school grads go to Sunday morning yoga rather than Mass??

Here is a tweet from on OCSB Superintendent – the one that over-ruled the St George’s principal and allowed the gay agenda into an elementary school.

#OCSB St Stephen’s School students are “Mini-Hotties”

OCSB continues close ties with Hot 899.

This is the station that pushes gay marriage, IVF etc. Lately the station has been pushing tickets for 50 Shades of Grey and now has an “PARTY GIRL” (sponsored by the Adult Fun Store). She’ll be giving away Sex toys and condoms tomorrow night for St Valentine’s Day at a Bar

OCSB is very proud of these Grade 6 students. Their essay says that the “mini-hotties” are big fans of the radio station.

Is the OCSB proud that GRADE SIX students don’t know the plural of Mom? Are they proud that Grade 6 students don’t know that “Dad’s” is NOT the plural of Dad. Not one student or the teacher in the class knows this?

How Catholic are #OCSB Elementary schools?

It is well known that large number of non-Catholic (and non-Christian) students attend Catholic high schools for various reasons (friends, good football team, proximity, etc). This is made possible by Open Access laws that the catholic school boards reluctantly agreed to when they accepted full funding from Bill Davis.

However, my investigation of OCSB elementary schools shows that they are defacto open access as well – not be government edict, but because they want to enlarge themselves without concern for the ramifications.

The Board likes to brag about their “Catholicity” by showing this page:ocsb catholicity

While their website states that non-Catholics can go if there is space availability, the truth appears to be that there is always space availability and enrolling at a Catholic school is first-come-first-served regardless of one’s religion. The de jure requirement of a baptism certificate is just that – de jure only.

OCSB Space Availability

A friend of this CIA blog forwarded this FOI letter he got today:

OCSBother1 (PDF)

OCSBother2 (pdf)

OCSB other jpeg

OCSBother2jpeg

In the above email, you will see:

a) the Board has NO idea how many non-Catholic students are enrolled in their elementary schools. In fact, there could be some classrooms where the majority of students are not even Catholic. No wonder teachers only teach religion in the greatest of generalities (Kumbaya) in order to not offend anyone. I have heard of several instances of teachers refusing crucifixes (offered by parents) in their classrooms to replace simple crosses – too graphic or offensive for Muslims?

b) the Board gives NO instruction about how to apply the “space availability” rules. In fact, people can enroll their children on a first-come first served perspective.

c) the Board keeps NO record of any non-Catholic student being rejected due to space considerations. If they did care to track it, perhaps the strong potential of the number ZERO could be embarrassing.

==============================

Now, it understandable why there are SO many OCSB ads (at bus-stops, on the Ottawa Citizen website etc). It is understandable why the OCSB doubled its marketing budget last year. It is understandable why their Family Welcome Centre is so popular with Saudi diplomats.

ocsb open

In previous posts, I have shown elementary schools behaving basically like public schools (Hot 899 rap, Orange and Black Day (vs. All Saints Eve), singing at nihilistic rock concerts (The Wall), being 100x more concerned about Mother Earth and the Religion of Recycling rather than learning the Catholic Faith, “social justice” ad nauseam, GSAs etc).

Much of this can be blamed on “Spirit of Vatican II” administration and an anti-Catholic OECTA teachers union. However, another factor must be the huge numbers of non-Catholics and non-Christians that attend OCSB elementary schools.

The watering down of the catholic school system to simply be a parallel public system will spell the death-knell of the catholic school system. The drive for students at any cost and the striving to conform with greater public on hot-button issues (contraception, gay agenda etc) are nails in the coffin.

PS: Don’t forget that stats show that grads of the parallel public (aka catholic) school are LESS likely to turn to God to help them decide what is wrong.

#OCSB St Leonard and St Mark’s and nihilistic “The Wall” with Roger Waters

In 2010, the St Leonard’s ELEMENTARY children sang at The Wall concert.

The OCSB thought is was so good, that in June 2012, St Mark’s did it again with Roger Waters playing the entire Pink Floyd The Wall album. This album is one of the darkest, most nihilistic albums around. The 2012 review in the Citizen talked about the wafts of marijuana smoke throughout ScotiaBank Place. The music contains numerous swear words.

The song that St Mark’s High School sang was “We don’t need no education” to a huge evil-looking teacher mannequin. The following video shows this. The Toronto video is from a different school but shows better the darker nature of the show.

Is this in alignment with the mission of Catholic schools?? Governments are not forcing schools to sing at The Wall concerts! This is internally driven by teachers. What principal would think this is a good idea? Why would they want school-children to be exposed to such nihilism?

Also, there have been accusations of anti-semitism against Roger Waters and his use of the Star of David and “$$$” on bombs during video projections in The Wall tours.

#OCSB wrongly teaches history of Galileo in Western Civ class

When Catholic high school teach History in Ontario, they use government approved secular textbooks that are identical to public schools.

Result: students wrongly learn about Galileo and are likely to naively believe the crazy info that Obama now says about the Crusades and the Inquisition

True Catholic schools would use the works of Historian Christopher Dawson for the truth about the middle ages!

and use the these textbooks:

The following powerpoint notes from secular publisher Holt Rinehart and Winston  (below) WRONGLY teach that Galileo was tried for his belief of heliocentrism – impossible given that Copernicus was a Catholic priest in good standing!

There is lots of more wrong with the textbook and notes from above (eg. the French revolution)

I have also looked at Grade 11 course which covers pre-1500 material – it also looks like a quick way to get your child to leave the Church!

#OCSB Mother Church: St Joe’s

The virtual cathedral for the #OCSB strongly appears to be St Joe’s. The very few teachers and principals that go to mass, often go to “mass” here.  St Joe’s is also big into New Teacher education, so OCSB teachers usually have their “pastor’s recommendation” from this parish

Will any #ocsb trustees (or former trustees) march with OECTA at Gay Pride?

It looks like the odds-on favourite for Ottawa Gay pride Marshall, 11yo St George;s student Quinn Maloney, may have some company in the parade if a motion at the next OECTA AGM passes. The following story is from:

The Toronto OECTA Unit had a mtg 2 days ago with attendance from OECTA President Big Jimmy Ryan (recipient of a Metropolitan Community Church award)

Archbishop Prendergast wants holy guests that don’t support IVF (kills embryo babies) and are prolife. If not, ocsb schools descend into demonic worldliness.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ottawa-archbishop-to-catholic-schools-make-holiness-the-standard-for-speake?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=85b01f6957-LifeSiteNews_com_Canada_Headlines_06_19_2013&utm

https://www.lifesitenews.com/images/pdfs/2013-10-16_ENG_Benefit_Dinner_Address.pdf

Archbishop Prendergast:

“Likewise, we must find good models when we invite guests to our schools. We are preparing students to be disciples of the Lord Jesus in a culture that is indifferent to him, even hostile to him. They need to meet models of men and women, courageous disciples and faithful Catholics, who are, in cooperation with God’s grace, living the faith to the full.

“These guests and partners must give an authentic Catholic witness that will inspire and encourage, not a counter-witness that will discourage and confuse. No matter how great their achievements in politics, business, sports, science, or the arts, we should not invite to our schools as guest speakers, or give awards to, those who provide a counter-witness to the Gospel.”

UPDATE June 30th: Sassy proves my point!

Update: July 5th:

Talk about hitting me with shovel etc. Ignores the Archbishop’s message about inviting holy Catholic people as guests at schools.

Will #ocsb obey Archbishop or Pharaoh Wynne on Sex Ed?

A fantastic article by Lifesite on Archbishop Prendergast ripping into the new sex ed by Wynne/Ben Levin:

I urge all parents to write the Minister and Premier!
Will OCSB support faithful Catholic parents and tell the Province and Pharaoh Wynne to “let my people go!”?
Catholics also must be wise though and have a Plan B if this doesn’t work. Will they idly stand by like they did after:
1) introduction of “equity and inclusive education” (EIE) http://everydayforlifecanada.blogspot.ca/2014/12/its-illegal-to-fully-teach-catholic.html
2) student-run GSA activist clubs in Catholic high schools
3) student-run (with activist parents) GSA  groups in Catholic JK-Gr6 schools (eg. St George’s Ottawa)
============
Will parents be like the frogs that don’t jump out of the hot water because the water temperature is being turned up slowly?
Boiling_Frogs_Pic_-_resizedlambs-2-slaughter
Will parents accept a possible exemption (ie. a table scrap from the OCSB) from the sex ed class (maybe 2 kids out of 30 and the kids will know what was taught in class by talking to other kids at recess  two hours later). Isn’t it weird for FAITHFUL Catholics to have to beg for exemptions from a supposedly Catholic school??
It is amazing how much more vocal papers like the National Post were in 2010 against the same sex ed program!

Hat-tip to another blogger: Are public high schools like #ocsb dumbing down?

An interesting post be a friend

http://leazsingh.blogspot.ca/2015/02/are-public-high-schools-dumbing-down.html

A friend recently had a long conversation with a public high school teacher in the Ottawa area, and he was so disturbed by what the teacher had to say that he took the trouble to write out the points of concern.

Here is a rundown of the teacher’s observations, as written by my friend:

  • In the ten years he has taught he has noticed a continuous and noticeable decline in student attention spans, especially in the last five years.
  • It is a constant battle to control their use of smartphones in the classroom.
  • Academic expectations have been dumbed down and grades inflated across the board.
  • He says no one fails and no one really succeeds (bright students become bored and disruptive in classes that they find unchallenging).
  • This dumbing down of standards affects colleges and universities as well.
  • Student use of the internet to cheat or copy is endemic.
  • The easy access to information that the internet provides has destroyed curiosity in many of them.
  • Students are passive learners (waiting for you to tell them what to do and how to do it). This is attributed in part to parents and teachers over-managing their children/student’s lives.
  • Students actually feel resentful when the teacher demands their attention in class. He attributes this in part to their fixation on their smartphones.
  • Teachers often try to turn learning into a kind of game, as students are not interested in lectures and will quickly tune out (and try to distract themselves with their smartphones).
  • Students really do feel they deserve a good grade just for showing up.
  • Students have lost all cultural reference to the Bible, such as allusions made in a movie or book to David and Goliath or Noah, for example – these are totally lost on them.

Lots of red flags here, to be sure. Note that these are the observations of one individual teacher, not a statistical survey. This teacher’s impressions could be skewed, or may reflect only the particular school in which this teacher is located.

Personally I find these observations fairly convincing. What I find perhaps most disturbing is the widespread loss of the Bible as a cultural reference. I am shocked (am I naive?) that many youth today do not recognize even the most well-known stories in the Bible, like Noah’s Ark or David and Goliath. What a strange world is coming into existence, with Christianity so completely absent from the minds of these younger generations.

If religious references have been lost, what about an understanding of world history? I wonder how many public high school students still recognize names like Marx, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and so on. How much do they know about the historical tragedies associated with these names? Has “social studies” been usurped by political agendas that fail to deliver a real world history education? It would be a dangerous error to sink into collective amnesia before “lest we forget” has even left the lips of Gulag and concentration camp survivors.
The other thing that comes to mind when I read this teacher’s observations is that there must be a widening divide between the public and the private school systems. My impression is that in many private schools, students continue to be motivated to learn, and they are fairly well informed about religion and history. Am I wrong?
