Would you be mad at the school...

If in kindergarten they read them a book called "Have fun now kids because your going to die one day and be buried in the ground. You'll be maggot food"

I mean, it's a natural fact of life.

  • They did actually when I was in first grade. Thanks, but I'll be teaching my kids what we believe. The schools have no business. These are issues that should be left to the parents. I don't understand why people think it's the schools (government's) job to raise children. Ridiculous.

  • I would be extremely upset. That is a conversation that parents should have with their children not the school

  • There is a book like that about an old man and his pet parrot. It was read to me 20 years ago so I can't remember the name for obvious reasons....
