"The plan of education proposed is anti-Christian, and therefore repugnant to the law . . . The purest principles of morality are to be taught. Where are they found? Whoever searches for them must go to the source from which a Christian man derives his faith - the Bible . . . There is an obligation to teach what the Bible alone can teach, viz. A pure system of morality." Vidal v. Girard's Executors, (1844)
"Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that is should be otherwise. In this sense and to this extent, our civilizations and our institutions are emphatically Christian. No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation." Church of the Holy Trinity v. U. S., (1892)
"We are a Christian people . . .according to one another the equal right of religious freedom, and acknowledge with reverence the duty of obedience to the will of God." United States v. Macintosh, 283 U.S. 605, 625 (1931)
"Traditionally, organized education in the Western world was Church education. It could hardly be otherwise when the education of children was primarily study of the Word and the ways of God. Even in the Protestant countries, where there was a less close identification of Church and State, the basis of education was largely the Bible, and its chief purpose inculcation of piety . . ." McCollum v. Board of Education, 333 U.S. 203 (1948)
"It is true that religion has been closely identified with our history and government. As we said in Engle v. Vitale, "The history of man is inseparable from the history of religion." Secularism is unconstitutional . . . preferring those who do not believe over those who do believe . . . It is the duty of government to deter no-belief religions . . . Facilities of government cannot offend religious principles." School District of Abington Township v. Schempp, 374 U.S. 203, 212, 225 (1963)
"It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate. [Student's rights apply] in the cafeteria, or on the playing field, or on campus during authorized hours . . . School officials do not possess absolute authority over their students." Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District, 393 U.S. 503, 506, 512, 513 (1969)
"Religion has been closely identified with our history and government, Abington School District, 1963, and that the history of man is inseparable from the history of religion, ENGEL v. VITALE, 370 U.S. 421 (1962)
The Bible may constitutionally be used in a appropriate study of history, civilization, ethics, comparative religion, or the like." Stone v. Graham, 449 U.S. 39, 42, 46 (1980)

Local Complaints Against the School System

1. The test scores in Chatham County are among the lowest in the state and the test scores in Georgia are among the lowest in the nation.

2. People should not be taxed to pay for any school system, not public or even private. People should not be forced to pay for the education of other people's children. Parents should be responsible for the education of their own children.

3. The children belong to the parents, not the school system and not the government in spite of the government's fraudulent and coerced contracts of adhesion. The parents have every Right to discontinue the payment of property taxes, to educate their own children as they see fit and appropriate for the welfare of their own family.

Myers Middle School

Myers Middle School - Half the school year is now over and they still do not have enough Spelling, Literature, Writing, and Science textbooks to go around and for the children to take home to study.

Myers Middle School - As of October 25, 2000, one parent's child reports that they still do not have soap or paper towels in the restrooms. This means that after a child has used the restroom, the child has a difficult time washing their hands before they go to the lunchroom to eat their food. There are no doors in the boy's restroom stalls for privacy when using the toilet. At the beginning of the school year, for over a month or two, there was no running water in the sink in the boy's restroom.

A teacher sent 3 students to sit in other classes for talking. What good does it do to send a student to sit in the corner in another teacher's class?

The coach in PE blew her whistle for 20 minutes telling the students they had to be quiet for 5 minutes before they could dress out. The students were not being rowdy, most of them were only talking at normal conversation levels. It did not make sense why the students had to be so very quiet before they could go dress out. Gym should be the place to let off a little steam and not a place to remain quiet.

A number of teachers and even the principal are not present at a number of PTA meetings.

Phonics and math are not taught properly in the lower grades. Children in 6th grade consquently have problems reading and doing math because of the school policy of abandoning 'old school' proper teaching methods.

The kids are being punished with detention and Saturday School for being tardy, but yet we have evidence of one child improperly being recorded as being tardy 2 times when he wasn't him, it was his cousin. Another time was for a day that the child rode the bus and the bus was late, which should not be on the child's record as being his fault.

Myers Middle School - One parent's child reports that Saturday School is handed out for punishment like it was candy. The children are being treated like prisoners, yelled at to shut up, given detention and Saturday school for simply saying 'hi' to a friend when settling into their chairs before class starts.

Myers Middle School - Homework, classwork and test papers are not being graded and sent home for parents to review. Some grades on report cards are incorrectly tabulated and the scores are lower than what the child actually earned. There is no accountability. The teachers can flunk anyone they want simply because they have a grudge against a child or for any reason at all because of the lack of accountability.

Several of the missing assignments on progress reports turned out to be assignments that had been turned in but not recorded by the teacher prior to the progress report. One of my child's test results had been entered into the computer as a 29 out of 50 when actually the maximum possible score was 40 so the grade should have been 29 out of 40 the difference being a C instead of a F.

The Language Arts progress report had a grade of 19.3% because the "report card holder" counted as 48.5% of the term and since my child had not turned it in he had a zero while his other grades in Language Arts were a 72, 85, 89, & 90. How a "report card holder" could count as almost half the grade?

Myers Middle School - Some teachers have been known to only 'teach' for 5 minutes out of an hour.

A Disciplinary Referral Form was completed by the Myers Middle School Principal for an incident which she did not even witness. No where on the form or attached to the form was any eye witness statement. This is an improper complaint against my child and denies me and my child our due process rights because 1. no where on the form was there any specific description of my child's alleged behavior and 2. no where on the form, nor in person, is the parent and the child given a hearing to verify the complaint and the alleged misbehavior prior to the time the administrators demand that my child be punished. The referral form required my child to attend Saturday school without adequate time available for parental verification of the complaint. The Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools Student Code of Conduct Manual including page 19 on the 1041-P Procedure Statement and other procedure statements in that same manual violate due process rights of the child and the parent by not requiring the availablity of adequate notice to both parents and a parental verification hearing of the alleged behavior of the child. This is a violation of FERPA Sections 99.10, 99.20, 99.21, 99.22 and due process of law in accordance with the Right to receive a hearing prior to punishment.

We took our child to Saturday school but requested of the program manager that the Saturday school assignment be delayed a week so that we would have time to talk to the Principal. The program manager said if my child did not stay and attend Saturday school he would be counted as a "no show" and would face more severe disciplinary action. The program manager was speaking to the children as if they were in Boot Camp which seems to be the norm at Myers Middle School, not just during Saturday School. This is a violation of FERPA Sections 99.10, 99.20, 99.21, 99.22 and due process of law in accordance with the Right to receive a hearing prior to punishment.

I wrote a complaint to the Principal about the unverified alleged behavior of my child allegedly stated on the Disciplinary Referral Form and requested a response within 10 days. No response has been received. This is a violation of FERPA Sections 99.10, 99.20, 99.21, 99.22 and due process of law in accordance with the Right to receive a hearing prior to punishment.

While waiting in the hallway to talk to one teacher, for about 20 minutes, we could overhear what was going on in three of my child's classrooms. One teacher was properly giving the children classroom instruction. The other two were yelling at the students to shut up. While we were in one of my child's classrooms the late bus students arrived in class and the teacher told them to sit down and be quiet. When one of the girls whispered to another girl, the teacher went on a 5 minute tirade and told the girl that she was getting Saturday School. I commented to the teacher that what I was seeing here was dysfunctional and she agreed that it was but that the students should be quiet anyway because they know the rules. I told her that instead the students should be inspired. We then went to the office to deliver the complaint I wrote earlier to the principal and try to talk to her about the complaint. The principal said that neither since I was not on ‘the card', she would not talk to us, but she did take the original and two copies of the complaint and said that she would look into it. This violates Georgia Code 20-2-720, 20-2-85 and FERPA and our due process rights.

I called an Associate Superintendent to try to address some of my complaints and my first wife spoke with her. The Associate Superintendent invited us to meet with her and the principal to discuss my concerns. An appointment was scheduled for November 2, 2000 at 12:15 P.M.

October 30, 2000 - The Associate Superintendent called me and told me that she could not meet with me since I was not on ‘the card'. I objected and told her that she was violating state law and federal law, but she refused to hear me out and began acting like she couldn't even hear me on the phone, saying "Hello? Hello?" This violates Georgia Code 20-2-720, 20-2-85 and FERPA and our due process rights.

Georgia Code Section 20-2-720 says "Information concerning a child's education record shall not be withheld from the non-custodial parent unless a court order has specifically removed the right of the non-custodial parent to such information.."

Requiring a child to have a social security number is a violation of Federal law since Social Security numbers are not supposed to be used for identification purposes.

Using a 'Uniform Product Code' bar code on ID cards that the schools are making the student's wear, is intentional infliction of emotional distress upon Christian school children, because these codes contain 666, a number in the book of Revelations described as the mark of the beast. Christians (nor anyone else) are not supposed to take this number. If they do, it means damnation for their soul. The UPC bar codes start with a 6 have 6 in the middle and a 6 at the end making each one have 666 on their ID. The Associate Superintendent said that everything is changing to computerized scanning and you have to keep up with the changes in technology. This is absolutely not true. People's Rights, especially children's come first before any new technological advances in police state.

U.S. Supreme Court ruling (WEST VIRGINIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION v. BARNETTE, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)) states that schools can not require students to stand for the pledge of allegiance or to recite the pledge of allegiance. Yet the teachers require students to stand for the pledge of allegiance.

Substitute teachers are operating as teachers all year long.

Substitute teacher threatened my child with detention for taking notes of what she was telling the class to do and when he tried to explain that I have been telling him that he needs to take good notes in school which is nothing more than good study habits, she told him "no excuses" without even listening to his explanation that he was doing what his parents had told him to do. I expect my child to take notes whenever a teacher is giving instructions in class. The public school systems are teaching the children to do exactly the opposite of what they should be doing in many areas, promoting ignorance, bad study habits, and poor reading and comprehension skills.

The librarian was turning students away from the library based on which teacher had sent them instead of asking what they needed. The library was not full at the time and over half the computers were not in use. The librarian was instead watching CNN reports on television.

Typical scenario: Teacher claims 7 assignments out of 24 are missing. Out of the 7 missing assignments, we recognize several that we knew our child had completed. Our child said he had done the assignments and turned them in.

When our child came home from school he said he had gotten in trouble because some other boys from his class started "boxing" him in the rest room and when he refused to fight and told his teacher about it she gave all of the boys including our child an assignment to write an essay about "showing respect for their teachers, parents and themselves" and she also told them they were all going to get detention. When we asked our child why he was being punished, he said he teacher said he was lying because he did not tell her all the names of who was involved but according to our child he had been interrupted by the kids when he was telling her what happened and did not get to finish. We did not feel it was fair that our child, as the victim who did what he was supposed to do and reported the incident to the teacher, should be punished the same as the other boys. According to my child there was at least one other boy from his class in the restroom who did not participate in the attack and who told the teacher that the incident happened the way my child told it. We had our child write down exactly what had happened so we could give it to the principal.
