My youngest mentioned that, during Social Studies, her teacher made the comment that the battles that took place during Ancient Rome were all part of God's plan.
Now, my daughter doesn't recall the exact wording used or the exact moment her teacher made this comment.
She brought it up as a discussion of God having a plan for all of us and that we may not understand His plan at this time.
I am curious. Do any of you find the teacher having mentioned this to be appropriate or not? Do you need more of the context in order to determine if you feel this was appropriate or not?
These are 6th graders, by the way.
Should have stated that yes, this is a public school. Opps.
As I stated in the thread, I appreciate all of the input.
I am going to talk with the teacher. I know her well enough to be able to discuss this and hopefully find out in just what context this came about.
I am, in no way, scared of God being mentioned in the classroom. Whether or not I agree, or disagree, with how He is mentioned is not what this is about or as important as what a teacher should, or should not, be doing in the classroom where God is concerned.
I like this teacher and my daughter adores her. I am not out to cause her any issues. I am, however, entitled to know just how this played out. If she did cross the line, which I think she may have or came darn close, that is not appropriate for any teacher.
