Teach Our Children

To ignore the law, that is what Georgia schools are teaching the students.

ATLANTA — Georgia‘s top education official said Friday that state school districts don’t have to comply with the Obama administration’s recent guidance that transgender students at public schools be allowed to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity.

State Superintendent Richard Woods, a Republican, said the guidance, contained in a May 13 joint letter from the Departments of Education and Justice, “does not have the force of law.” But the directive from President Barack Obama‘s administration says schools that refuse to comply could lose federal aid — nearly $2 billion statewide in Georgia for the coming year.

“If the federal government does decide to withhold federal funds, enforce this directive, or bring suit against any district in Georgia because of a decision a local district makes, we will work with all parties to take appropriate action,” Woods wrote to school district superintendents around the state.
Isn’t that great! We will only obey the laws that we like and ignore the ones we don’t… isn’t that a great message to teach our children?

President Obama just didn’t pull these regulations out of a hat, they all have been based on court rulings but that doesn’t matter to these Republican legislators or the State Superintendent Richard Woods.

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.
