The headmistress of a Staffordshire public school recently threatened parents: if their children did not participate in a field trip “to explore Islam,” kids as young as 8 years old would be perpetually punished. The exact quote from Headmistress Lynn Small’s letter to parents:
“Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on their file throughout their career.” ( http://godfatherpolitics.com/13380/students-labeled-racist-years-dont-go-islamic-field-trip/ )
Littleton Green Community School is operated by the county of Staffordshire.
Ms. Small further warned parents that she would make “a thorough and detailed investigation” into any student who was absent on the day of the field trip.
Despite public outrage and terrible publicity, this little tin fascist has not been fired from her post. In fact, the kids still have to go on the field trip, or else. Why?
Because it’s “part of the National Religious Education Curriculum together with the multicultural society in which we live, [and] it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures,” babbled Ms. Small.
Why do we care what happens in England?
Because the tin fascists who subject America’s schools to Common Core absolutely cannot wait to do things just like this!
I promise you, pilgrims, it’s coming right at you.
Get your kids out of public education. Now.
Update: Shortly after this story broke, Head Teacher Small apologized for “inaccuracies” in her warning letter and asked parents to disregard it. “Inaccuracies”–well, that’s one way of putting it. But it seems the public uproar over her PC tantrum has convinced her not to brand as racists any children who don’t make the field trip.
But she still isn’t fired, and it’s still possible for some idiot schoolmarm to give a child a permanent “racist” label for whatever stupid reason she pleases.
