5. Teaching Math In 2000s

An opinion on the student @ Grand Junction Co. that quit the quote so called voluntary choir for having to sing a Muslim song. Mr. Kirkland's answer was this just shows we need more culutural diversity taught to students. B.S.

this man should have been fired on the spot for that remark. This is exactly why our children are so dumbed down people like Mr. Kirkland have more interest in teaching politically corect diversity that reading, writing, histor, and math. if I was the parent of the student he would be ienrolled in another school before morning of the next day.

Such a teacher probably would not be fired because his academic peers would probably be of like mind - or perhaps is should say equally lacking in any common sense
