Keep ‘superfluous mess’ out of schools

To the editor,

In response to DJ Maguire’s guest column (“What’s the cost of ‘Don’t Say Gay’?” May 8), my question would be why schools have to teach any child of any age about the different sexual identities and lifestyles.

When I came along, school taught the basic fundamentals of a solid education. When you speak of the cost it would be to Virginia, let me say this: Don’t spend the money on that curriculum to start with. There are plenty of good, solid materials that can be taught without mentioning any type of sexual preference.

I resent you alluding to the fact that people who don’t want this being taught are bigots. No, they are caring parents who want their kids to get a good education without all the superfluous mess others want thrown in.
