Good Lord! I Mean…uh…Who Are These People?


You've got to give social conservatives credit. They certainly know what the most important issues facing education are. In Kentucky, it's preserving the sanctity of B.C. and A.D:

The state school board on Wednesday scrapped a plan to teach
students about an alternative to the calendar terms B.C. and A.D.,
which carry religious overtones.

The board, with six new
members appointed by Gov. Ernie Fletcher, reversed a decision two
months ago that had sparked a religious debate in Kentucky.

 Just a thought…but maybe they'd like to address the fact that Kentucky's education typically ranks in the bottom half of the nation?
