I was reading a thread on Facebook, and realized I haven’t yet addressed this important topic.
The discussion is often about whether prayer should be allowed in schools, but to me the bigger issue is whether we should even have federally controlled schools, which is unconstitutional.
And I have long thought that whether public prayer is allowed or not is minor compared to teaching the religious belief in evolution as fact, which can actually be disproved with facts; though, these facts aren’t taught. Teaching evolution as fact teaches children that the book of Genesis is erroneous, and we’re just like animals — so ~“why not just do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel” — which sex education helps happen.
Charlotte Iserbyt goes into detail how our children are being systematically brainwashed on purpose:
Charlotte Iserbyt: Exposing the Miseducation of America — She found documents that show the federal government and tax exempt foundations have been changing the education system from fundamental academic study to what amounts to operant conditioning dog training.
This following article addresses whether we should even have federally controlled schools?

ARE PUBLIC SCHOOLS CONSTITUTIONAL?
Lynn M. Stuter
January 20, 2003
As the war over education reform — Goals 2000, school-to-work, and “outcome-based education” — rages on, the time is more than ripe to ask ourselves, “Are public schools constitutional?”
Looking at the United States Constitution, no provision is made for education, but the Constitution does instruct that … “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” (Tenth Amendment) In other words, education is reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Why, then, do we have a cabinet level United States Department of Education (US DOE)? Does this not violate the U.S. Constitution? In a word, “yes.” The US DOE was established under the Carter Administration as a political payoff to the teacher unions for their support of Jimmy Carter for president.
For example, humanists (Darwinists) believe in evolution while Christians believe in creationism. Is evolution being taught in the public schools? Yes, it is and has been for many years. Is the religion of humanism being taught in the public schools? Humanism is the religious basis of education in the public schools of today.
