Conservativism perceived as a danger

Diversity??A cultural issues writer says teacher diversity training, which is now prominent in most public schools, presents a particular danger to students of faith.

Laurie Higgins with the Illinois Family Institute taught in a Chicago-area public school for years and says teachers are indoctrinated with radical leftist views on homosexuality and white supremacy -- and then they carry those theories into the classrooms.

"When your children, as a result of what they are hearing from kindergarten throughout college about race, about homosexuality, if they come to believe that scripture is wrong on homosexuality, they will come to distrust and dismiss scripture on a whole host of other issues," Higgins tells One News Now.

One of her biggest complaints about diversity training is that it strictly bans conservative ideas and beliefs from the classroom.

"Any parent that has the means to send their kids to existing Christian schools or to homeschool and isn't doing it is part of the problem," she submits.

Higgins says schools have and always will view conservative beliefs as discriminatory, which makes others feel "unsafe."

Last month Higgins published the letter she emailed to Deerfield High School's principal in about 2007 when she dropped out of an ongoing divisive diversity workshop due to the intolerance, close-mindedness, bigotry, and dishonesty of her "un-collegial colleagues."
