Overview

The American public school system, once the envy of the world, is now a cesspool of political correctness, ineptitude and violence, yet its administrators demand - and receive - far more funding per child than do higher-performing private and religious schools. From teachers who can barely comprehend English to the elevation of foreign cultures and ideals above our own, from the mainstreaming of violent juvenile felons to demands that queer studies be considered as vital as math, our classrooms have become havens for indoctrination, sexual license and failed educational fads. In From Crayons to Condoms, you'll experience today's public schools as never before, through the voices of parents and children left stranded in the system, the same voices that teachers unions and school administrators are determined to stifle. Here's a must-read for every parent concerned about their child's future, and for every taxpayer sick of being dunned endlessly to prop up a failed system.

    it seems as though some american republican is a little angry with their kid learning about sexual safety in school
    not only are school teachers well educated (apparently more than this author) but they dealing with parents who have issues with diversity of not only other cultures but of other people's lifestyle choices
    this book is a handbook on how to raise your child as an ignorant hateful bigot not unlike the person who wrote it and i strongly advise against
