This petition is for Taxpayers in the San Juan Unified School district to voice their objections to a new Charter School Proposal being formulated for our area. This idea is being promoted as a \"humane studies\" elementary school which supposedly would be a \"safe\" school, teaching compassion, non-violence and community service to elementary school children. Looking closer, one discovers that the person behind this proposal is an animal rights activist and a board member of Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a radical group similar in philosophy to PETA. He states that at the core of this school would be the philosophy that people and \"non-human animals\" are equals. Children will explore the social, political and economic forces that encourage prejudice based on \"species.\" Read the newspaper article on this idea here: http://www.sacbee.com/content/community_news/arden_carmichael/story/6429682p-7381678c.html It is clear that an animal rights group is trying to infiltrate our public schools, using taxpayer dollars to train our children in their extremist agenda, under the guise of being \"humane\" and having a \"safe\" school. The charter school system was designed to encourage innovation in educational methods rather than promoting sectarian or philosophical ideology. Religion, Animal Rights, and other specialized belief systems should be kept in the domain of the Private Schools. Special Interest Groups should not be educating our children in their belief system using Taxpayer dollars. Please voice your opposition to the San Juan Unified School District creating a public school with a Radical Animal Rights agenda using your taxpayer dollars. Thank you.

Comments: Dear Citizens of San Jaun: Whilst I do not personally live in your community I am behind any form of social engineering or psychological engineering campaigns in public schools. Schools are a place of learning where children are to be prepared to become independant and functional adults, not unwilling converts to any radical's personal cause. Thank you for creating this petition. I stand behind you on it.

Comments: Enough of the social engineering! Alexis de Toqueville correctly identified America's greatest strength as our commitment to public education. It was a reference made in the 19th century, when our education system was truly geared towards inculcating an individual to think critically. Now our educators indoctrinate a systematic criticism of individuality. We need a revolution in our system of education because our schools are revolting already!
