To the editor:
If you never talk with a child about drugs and their consequences, he will never try them. This is a stupid and uninformed statement.
If you never tell a child that playing with matches can cause dangerous fires, he will never touch matches. This is a stupid and uninformed statement.
If you never talk with a child about sex education and consequences of various sexual behaviors, he will never have sex. You can see where I'm going with this.
The State Board of Education has once again highlighted Kansas as a state that places blind faith to ideology above knowledge.
Pretending something doesn't exist doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It just means that we are unable to deal with reality.
How much further will we take this culture of ignorance and fear? I was told "knowledge is power." I guess now ignorance is.
