Our rotting education system

This is what passes for education in Ottawa's "Catholic" schools:
An Ottawa couple has pulled their daughter out of a Catholic school, claiming the teacher made anti-American remarks. The 13-year-old girl has dual citizenship; she's part American and says the comments offended her and tonight the board issued an apology to the family.

The comments came during a discussion around terrorism, after the attacks in Paris and a comparison, the girl says that the teacher made between those attacks and the nuclear bomb the U.S. dropped on Japan, saying the Americans were the real terrorists.

She said because they are the only country to have used nuclear weapons, that the Americans are the real terrorists.’

Addison's father is Canadian and her mother, American; Addison and her little brother have dual citizenship.

‘I raised my hand to tell her I’m American,’ says Addison, ‘in the hopes that she would stop talking about that because I started feeling a little bit offended.’

Addison says her teacher replied ‘Do you want a prize or something?’
When the girl's parents protested to the school board, they got the "Don't let the door hit you on the ass" treatment, then followed it up with come good, solid lies:
The Ottawa Catholic School Board strives to ensure a safe, caring and inclusive environment in all our schools. One of our students has indicated that this was not her experience, and for that I am truly sorry.

As a Catholic school system we have a strong commitment to make sure our school communities are places where everyone feels welcome. Through the efforts of the school’s administration and the superintendent, we have reached out to the parents of this student, and we are disappointed that we have not been able to resolve it to their satisfaction. We do not want even one family to leave without the situation being resolved satisfactorily. So, although the parents have made a decision that they believe is in the best interests of their child, we continue to value and encourage a strong relationship between home and school. We will continue to work to prevent such a situation occurring in the future.’
Now, what do you suppose would have been the reaction if instead of ventilating her own personal political biases to a captive audience, the teacher had seen fit to recite the actual teaching of the Catholic Church on homosexuality or adultery? Well, actually, we don't have to suppose, because we can see by checking what happened last year, when a Catholic school collided with homo-propaganda:
In a statement released late Monday, school board spokeswoman Mardi de Kemp said the girls will now be allowed to do “project on how the topic of gay rights is addressed by a Catholic high school’s equity club. The girls will be welcome to present their project at the social justice fair.”

In late November, students Quinn Maloney-Tavares and Polly Hamilton planned to examine gay rights in a project for a Social Justice Fair in January that would be seen by students in Grades 4 to 6. But St. George principal Ann Beauchamp vetoed the project...

The reversal of the ban follows considerable internal examination on the part of board officials.

At one point board chairman Ted Hurley acknowledged that he had reviewed the matter “in the full context of promoting fairness, bullying prevention and Catholic teaching with regard to gay rights.

“The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has made it clear that our attitudes to gay and lesbian people should be addressed with love and dignity in an open and transparent way, when he said, ‘Who am I to judge?’
So, then: snot-nosed brats coached by homosexual activist raise a stink: collapse faster than a wet condom.

American girl exposed to teacher's insults and sneers, then harassed by equally (if possible) ignorant fellow students: stony-faced standing on principle, complete with insincere lies about inclusion and safety.

Two stories in one month, showing that the education system in Ontario is honeycombed with rot from top to bottom.
