"School curriculums should be decided by the school boards, who are elected by the voters. As the Heritage Foundation says, "America is a republic and not a pure democracy."

Or be told by a teacher that gays should be burned at the stake? The strangest thing happened. It is now forbidden in most schools to say the pledge of allegiance in school.
As a post script, yes, you can actually get a clearance if you smoked weed. If you deny it, you're screwed because you lied. Case in point.
'Employees at professional services company Ernst & Young (EY) cheated on their ethics exams — leading to a $100 million fine, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced Tuesday.
EY — known as one of the “big four” accounting firms — admitted that a “significant number” of audit professionals cheated on the ethics portion of their certified public accountant (CPA) exams and continuing education courses, according to a press release from the agency. The company also withheld evidence of the misconduct from officials."
