                                 AUTHOR RUN FOR PRESIDENT

                                      By: Edward P. Shallow

After reading this insightful piece authored by a High School Principle, I just had to share it with my readers and I know they will be impressed, some will agree the principle should run for President.

High school principal Dennis Prager of Colorado was on TV recently along with Sara Palin and Tom Brokaw, Prager turned out to be a dynamic, down to earth speaker, Bokaw and Palin had to nod and agree with him.

He delivered a speech every American High School Principle should give.

To the students and faculty of our high school:

I am your new principle, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against your country.

First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asia or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity — your character, your scholarship, your humanity. In addition, the only national identity this school will care about is American.

This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm and ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity, race and non-American nationally based celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values — e pluribus Unum, “from many one.”

Moreover, this school will be guided by America’s values. This includes all after school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.

Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism — an unhealthy preoccupation with the self — while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more if the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little of yourself really interests you.

Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. In addition, if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here — it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English–but if you want classes taught in your native language this is not your school.

Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning has elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.

Forth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s property–whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you cannot speak, without using the f-word, you cannot speak. By obscene language, I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that is the time you leave this school; you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.

Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way–the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago–by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.

Sixth and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue. THere will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or her inordinately lucky–to be alive and to be an American.

Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of or country.  As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand them out to you.
