I disagree. God forbid they didn't cater to and listen to an entitled parent. They HAD to do something because "that parent is a tax paying citizen" so that gives them the right to have input. (I say that with sarcasm). Go tell a police officer how to do his job on the street and see what happens. Let me know how that goes since you're a "tax paying citizen".

No they didn't agree. They gave her a suspension in the SUMMER just to shut this guy up because they feel they need to cater to parents who think they know what should be, and what shouldn't be, taught to thier children. When Mr. Sherman gets his teaching license his opinion will matter on what material and why it is being used in school. Until then let the TEACHERS teach.

Disgusting. If they catch this future serial killer the punishment should be the same thing he did to those defensless dogs! This country, and particularly this area, is too soft on crime that's why people continuing their lifestyle. Get serious on punishment and you will have less criminals!!

a resident of Spring Meadow Circle asked for assistance with neighbors who block off the street and shoot fireworks.
-Why do old people turn into jackazzes as they get older? I bet this guy NEVER shot off any fireworks in his day.

I am NOT promoting parents do not get involved with their child's education, discipline etc. I am against the school system giving in to and putting up with parents crying about and nit picking about how they run their school. If the parent wanted to be a teacher and think they know best then they should've went to school to be a techer. I don't tell firemen, police officers, doctors etc how to do their job so why do parents feel entitled to do that with the school system? I applaud you for wanting to, and getting, involved but know where the line is.

"I base my opinion" "I haven't always agreed" "Mrs. Angelo didn't bring any of the parents into her student's education."
-No one cares what your opinion is and if you agree or not. This is the problem with today's society and why teachers have lost control and have issues doing what they're doing. Every parent has an "opinion". Isn't that why you send your child to school? To let someone ELSE teach them? If you want your opinion to matter OR want "brought into your student's education" then HOME SCHOOL them. You have that option you know. If you CHOOSE to send them to school then let the teachers who EARNED A DEGREE in education teach them. Teachers probably walk on egg shells everyday wondering if a parent is going to have a problem with what they do or if they're going to offend a student and thats BS. If you choose to send your child to school you give up the right to have an opinion in how they are taught. You want your opinion involved then home school. Parents today need to be more focused how how they're raising their child at home not what the teachers are doing in the classroom. Like so many other posters have said go look at your child's facebook or cell phone and see what they ACTUALLY know not what you perceive their innocence to be.

Sounds like you and I had similar school experiences and I'm sure we both turned out fine. Kids these days are caudled too much thats why most of them either have behavior issues or are brats. Let's just baby them!
"Kudos to you Mr Sherman for standing up to immoral scum and trying to keep our young children innocent."
You are a perfect example of a parent that is oblivious to what their child actually already knows. Yes, let's pretend this big bad world doesn't exist and hope our kids turn out alright. OR we can educate them on what is ACTUALLY reality and teach them right from wrong. Since you're poiting fingers at BoardmanJeff you're idea of a perfect daughter would be kept in the dark about sex education like it doesn't exist and then when she comes home and says "I'm pregnant" you can wonder why she thought the game "just the tip" was ok.

and to the parent who actually filed a complaint with the state, grow up and get a life. I remember watching a live child birth movie in 6th grade. Yes, I saw a vagina, a real live vagina not just a drawing of it, in 6th grade. I turned out just fine.
