Suit: Teacher Showed 'Brokeback' in Class

Your tax dollars at work...

From The Las Vegas Sun:
A girl and her grandparents have sued the Chicago Board of Education, alleging that a substitute teacher showed the R-rated film "Brokeback Mountain" in class.

The lawsuit claims that Jessica Turner, 12, suffered psychological distress after viewing the movie in her eighth-grade class at Ashburn Community Elementary School last year.

The film, which won three Oscars, depicts two cowboys who conceal their homosexual affair.

Turner and her grandparents, Kenneth and LaVerne Richardson, are seeking around $500,000 in damages.

"It is very important to me that my children not be exposed to this," said Kenneth Richardson, Turner's guardian. "The teacher knew she was not supposed to do this."

According to the lawsuit filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court, the video was shown without permission from the students' parents and guardians. Richardson had previously complained to school officials about reading material he said contained curse words.
This is the Left wing indoctrination that goes on in our public schools. They also make kids watch the inconvenient truth Lie over and over again in some schools. I keep telling you that the Left is indoctrinating your children to accept their values and vision for the future. You had better be on the job, because they are.
