Public education strikes again!
A group calling itself the “Caucus of Working Educators”–that sounds so much grander than “bunch of classroom teachers”–has announced its plan to devote a week of the curriculum to “Black Lives Matter,” the radical racialist, anti-police group ( http://www.philly.com/philly/education/20170122_Phila__teachers_plan_Black_Lives_Matter_week_-_not_all_are_happy.html ).
Not all the teachers are happy about this. It has to be pretty far out, to make unionized teachers uneasy. But the Caucus is pushing “Six Days of Action”–that sounds pretty grand, too; but wait for the punchline–highlighted by giving the kiddies a little item entitled “The Revolution is Always Now.”
“The Revolution is Always Now” is… “coloring pages.” Shazzam! A coloring book! Your school tax dollars at work!
Some “transgender affirming” will also be thrown in. For laughs, maybe?
One teacher said he wasn’t exactly thrilled with teaching the kiddies that “Western society makes war on black people.”
Just one question. You continue to send your kids to these schools because…?
