Worst School Paper Ever?

April 14, 2013 by  

Worst School Paper Ever?, A Florida dad is irate over a note his son’s fourth grade teacher made him write saying he’d give up his Constitutional rights. Jacksonville-area father Aaron Harvey says he found a piece of paper in his kid’s backpack that said: “I am willing to give up some of my Constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.” The boy explained it has been part of a class assignment.

Furious, Harvey obtained a copy of the curriculum guide which indicated it was supposed to help students determine which rights they value most and least. Amid the flap, Duval County Public Schools has issued a statement saying the lesson builds awareness of First Amendment rights but there is “possible concern” over the follow-up activity.

A local 10-year-old has decided to give up some of his constitutional rights, if what he wrote in crayon is to be believed.

“According to the children, [the teacher] spoke the sentence and they had to write down what she said,” said Aaron Harvey, the fourth grader’s concerned father.

Harvey said his son did what he was told during a civics lesson at Cedar Hills Elementary School and wrote, “I am willing to give up some of my constitution rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

Aaron Harvey believes this statement reflects the teacher’s personal opinion and has no place in his impressionable son’s classroom.
