A strong, and authoritative police presences is necessary in order to protect students from each other. Including teachers and school administrators. Public schools have become similar to prison lock downs. Used as means to keep students contained within the school campus. And to keep the public locked out from entering public school campuses. There is a silent fear that some *sicko* might enter the school premises and go on a killing spree.
Not just the public schools, but the American society as a whole seems to have lost its moral footing. Ever wonder why? This posting will address the cause of our fall morally. Addressing the means for moral restoration for America, also.
Where is this public school scenario playing out? Most likely in any public school through out the United States. But in particular, the public schools in Tampa, Florida and surrounding communities. All these schools are governed by the Hillsborough County School District, based in Tampa. The chairperson for the district is Jennifer Faliero. Serving as her chief operating officer is Superintendent, MaryEllen Elia. At the helm of each school is a principle. Ultimately these principles are responsible to Elia and Faliero. Together they operate a multi-billion dollar industry. Which academically is poor, when compared with other school districts across the nation. Furthermore they can not provide a violent free environment in the schools they manage. As was discussed, in the previous posting. Where this writer discussed some of his encounters with the public school system. Along with a published report on school violence in the St. Petersburg Times.
So who is at fault for this gruesome arena of poor academics and violence plaguing our public schools? Is it the ineptness of Faliero, Elia and their school principles? Is it the result of race and social economic issues? The answer is an astounding yes! But it is far more complex, than an astounding yes. The factual answer is nestled in a public school system that has turned away from God. For those of us who are Christians, it is our duty to return Jesus Christ and the Bible back into the public school system.
In order to do this we Christians will have to follow the admonishment found in Ephesians 6:10. “… be strong in the Lord, and the power of his might. In addition, understand that the battle will be fierce. There is a need for Christians in this battle to clothe themselves in the complete armor of God. Because Christians will be up against the best strategies that the devil can muster against us, Ephesians 6:11.
The struggle is not against flesh and blood any longer. Some strategies are now comfortably anchored within the schools principalities by anti-God legislation and court rulings. Forcing school boards and their subservient personnel within the public school or outside of the school to bow to secularism. This represents any source, or force attempting to returning God to the classroom.
The Word of God which is Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:13. Refers to this menace as, “… the rulers of the darkness of this world, (those who can not see the value Christ in the classroom) (even though the past demonstrates the value of Christ in the class room) against spiritual wickedness in high places, Ephesians 6:12. Christ considers opposition to a Bible curriculum in the public schools as, *spiritual wickedness in high places.* A forced Bible course for every student is not advocated, but rather an elective selection for students desiring such a course(s). It is wrong to force the Bible upon students, but it is just as wrong to deny students the opportunity for Bible study.
In the end a godless child makes for a godless nation. A nation doomed to social and economic peril. Unequivocally returning God to the class room will be a daunting task. In light of legislative and court rulings making God illegal in the the public schools. I am convinced that returning God to a place of honor and respect throughout our Hillsborough County School District must be done. Only a united Christendom can accomplish such a task. The question is are we up to such a task?
Need a speaker to address this dreadful dilemma of God outside of the class room? If not corrected the consequences will be more severe than those chronicled in the previous posting. Also student violence is guaranteed to become more violent in school. It will continue to spill over outside of school because what children do in school will carry over into every aspect of society. Requiring a stronger police presences wherever the public conducts its business. Please refer to the navigation link for contact information.
