January 1, Teacher Fired Over “Divisive” Children’s Book



In a triumph for conservatives emphasizing the importance of traditional values in schools, an Atlanta school board has taken firm action against the introduction of potentially contentious material into the classroom.

The Cobb County School Board took the decisive step of upholding superintendent Chris Ragsdale’s recommendation to dismiss Katie Rinderle, a fifth-grade teacher at Due West Elementary School.

This decision was rooted in a parent’s complaint from March, which criticized Rinderle for reading “My Shadow Is Purple” to her students.

The book, which discusses gender beyond the traditional binary system, was viewed by Ragsdale as a clear violation of a state law prohibiting the teaching of “divisive” concepts in classrooms.

The law in question, House Bill 1178, empowers parents to have more oversight over their children’s education.

It gives them the right to review instructional materials and also ensures the protection of their fundamental rights to guide their child’s moral and religious upbringing.

The Cobb County district, in response to the decision, stated, “The district is pleased that this difficult issue has concluded; we are very serious about keeping our classrooms focused on teaching, learning, and opportunities for success for students.”

They continued, emphasizing, “The board’s decision is reflective of that mission.”

Randy Scamihorn, one of the board’s Republican members, defended his affirmative vote on the termination by highlighting the expectations of his constituents.

“They’ve entrusted me to educate our kids, to keep our classrooms free of controversial topics and politics,” he said.

“We need to focus on our academics and Georgia standards and our curriculum, and anything that’s not on the curriculum needs to be approved before using. It’s simple as that.”

Bottom Line

While the teacher in question and her legal representatives have voiced their disappointment, the board’s decision serves as a testament to the values upheld by conservatives and the importance they place on maintaining the traditional character of educational institutions.

      Amen to that. 4 to 3???? If there is sugar , ants are soon to follow. Those who can’t read and discern the Freedom of Speech Amendment , should not be in GOVERNMENT making decisions that impact young lives. There is enough vulgarity in the hallways , without MAKING IT a forefront in the classroom. Ah, Madelyn Murray O’Haire must be smiling in Hell.

    Reading, writing, and arithmetic-that’s what should be taught-nothing more! No child in elementary school should be taught anything that confuses or sexualizes them-they’re kids-let them be kids!

    When will parents pull their kids? Collapse the system. No kids in seats, no money from government. No money, no teachers. No teachers, no indoctrinators/groomers/abusers. Easy. Don’tthink you can educate your child? The alternatove is curriculum without your input or acceptance. Covid shot without consent, hormones without consent. Think about that one. Change your kids sex without your consent. Easy call. Don’t think they can do that? They already are.

    Now before any of our liberal enlightened friends complain about how Republicans want to ban books, we do not. We just don’t want teachers exposing adult sexual material to innocent children.

    All you DUMB F—ing hillbilly back wood hicks did was fired someone who was trying to show the students what there facing in the real world, as much as you and that moronic f___ from Florida try or even think you can change the way people are born, you can’t. Read the explanation by (Thomas) he’s living proof of (BUMB F—ING BACK WOOD HILLBILLY’) since when is GENDER adult sexual material, and then you top it off with another LYING SOUTHERN REPUBLICAN STATEMENT that you don’t want to ban books, that’s why (SHIT FOR BRAINS) In Florida stopped teachers from teaching how you MORONS treated black people because of the color of there skin, you know like hanging a 14yr old because some piece of shit WHITE BITCH said he whistled at her, you know stuff like that, and why do you always bring religion into the conversation if the big was down here he would probably STICK HIS PAPLE FOOT UP YOUR ASS and tell you to go lose yourself in a cave and don’t look for a way out.

    The board acted correctly, congratulation to all who made this decision. Dissenters need to be removed from board, politics, & this country. Let them go to Iran or Pakistan & try this. The experience would be good for them. FJB ULTRA-MAGA MIKE

    if you think you can make anyone that is not like you, disappear from this earth… you are mistaken. You want to avoid anything sexual? then go ahead and ban all talk and ideas about marriage of any kind. do not allow kids to know how babies are formed or where they grow to viable size. go dress up in burkas to assure there is no temptation or knowledge involved. Oh and ban that sexy make up on your face. children are being indoctrinated full force into total ignorance. taught to hate others for not having the same thoughts as you do. you self-righteous bigots need to read those books you ban. What will you do if your child decides they dont want to live to disappoint their parents. are you the parents that will not ever accept your child if they are not straight? be mindful of who you wish to eliminate, that person could be one of your own siblings, parents or children.
