The Marysville School District’s use of a church-based group of lunchtime mentors is disturbing on several levels.
1) A 19-year-old has no business inviting an 11-year-old to any activity without the permission of a parent.
2) The obtaining of e-mails, addresses or phone numbers of students for the purpose of getting them to attend a non-school function is unethical. It would be unethical for any group, religious-based or not, to obtain this information from minors.
3) To those who think it is OK to have a religious group mentoring to public school students, would you extend the same support to a group from a mosque?
