BC versus BCE in the Rockwood School District

It has come to attention of many parents that numerous teachers throughout the Rockwood School district are teaching our students to use the terms B.C.E. (Before Common Era) and C.E. (Common Era) in lieu of B.C. (Before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini). We, the undersigned taxpayers of the Rockwood School District, request that the Rockwood School District continue to use the terms B.C. (Before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini) as indicators of historical time periods rather than B.C.E. (before common era) and C.E.(common era). We believe the use of "B.C.E." and "C.E." is inconsistent with the traditions and principles upon which our country was founded.


The Sponsors of this petition are tax paying residents of the Rockwood School District.
