Right! Back into the nooze. Hip-deep in muck.
Thanks to an insane Obama policy, public school teachers have become sitting ducks for violent students: and all efforts to remedy the situation are being vigorously opposed by–would you believe the teachers’ unions? (http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/03/02/teacher-coalition-seeks-to-end-obama-school-discipline-policy-a-lot-of-fear-in-schools/)
Last week we told you about the PROMISE Act, by which the federal government rewarded local police departments and school districts for ignoring certain kinds of crimes and thus making the crime rate appear to go down. That was the carrot–and now for the stick.
In 2014 the administration of President *Batteries Not Included sent out a “Dear Colleague” guidance letter (why does “guidance” seem such a threatening word, when leftids use it?) to school districts warning them that the Dept. of Justice–“justice”!–and the Dept. of Education might “investigate” districts where school discipline seems to be applied “disproportionately” to “minority” students.
Well, waddya know! In the wake of government pressure to ignore infractions like disruption, fighting, assaults on teachers, etc., student violence against teachers increased dramatically throughout the public schools. In desperation, in 2016 the Minnesota legislature passed a Teacher Protection Act to remove aggressive students from the classroom and to warn teachers about students who’d shown themselves to be a physical threat.
So of course the American Federation of Teachers gets in on the act–opposing measures to protect teachers from violence! Hey, that’s some union you’ve got there, teachers! The AFT is joined by the usual crowd on the Loony Left–the ACLU, the NAACP, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (taking time out from censoring conservatives on YouTube).
Predictably, the leftids insist that any attempts to rein in “minority” students from violence are… racist! They believe in this thing they call “the school-to-prison pipeline,” it’s systemic racism, to punish juvenile delinquents. To combat “racism,” we have to let certain students physically attack their teachers–not to mention other students. Again, we make the crime rate go down by ignoring it, especially when it’s crime committed by a “minority” criminal.
Hello, normal people! Wake up! These left-wing crazies are wrecking your country and you’re letting them do it! If it goes on much longer, there won’t be anything left to wake up to.
