Letter to the editor: Teachers negatively influence our children

You see the news every day of young folks burning, looting and destroying cities. Why are they so angry? Why do they think vandalism and rage is an appropriate action? When was the last time you asked your child “What are you reading in school?” What are the classroom discussions about? Why do teachers avoid parent involvement in learning about classroom discussions? Does the teacher assign books on dystopia and call them character building? Who decides what age-appropriate is? Did you know in most cases it is either the publisher or a teacher?

The books being offered by our teachers and provided by our school systems are full of dystopia (a dismal outlook of a miserable society). They have a repeated theme that parents and adults should not be trusted. They have very little educational value and support a theory of misery and destruction. Do you have a child or teenager out of control or totally withdrawn? What influence is that teacher having on your child? Does a child with issues, given negative messaging by teachers become defiant? Are they reading books like “UnWind” or “We’ll Fly Away?”

Parents, it is time to find out what teachers and school systems are teaching. You are your child’s voice. Montana parents need to wake up, get involved and take charge of how your child is negatively influenced by teachers.
