What do you do for extra credit–riot?
I’m not going to spend a lot of time on this because it depresses me. But the nooze is the nooze.
First, though, get a load of this lead by the Associated Press: “As America reels from its latest spate of deadly hate crimes and racism…” (https://ktla.com/news/california/after-years-of-debate-california-approves-ethnic-studies-curriculum-for-k-12-schools/). As a former newspaper editor and reporter, who worked hard and tried to do the job as best he could, I can hardly find words for how much this Peking Review/Pravda/Daily Worker-style of pseudo-journalism upsets me. The AP also reminds its defenseless readers that “education is an essential strategy for combating hate.”
Anybody got a barf bag?
So the State Bored of Education voted 11-0 to ring in this curriculum, mostly warmed-over BLM hogwash, some 900 pages of it. It’s for all grades, K-12, and focuses on all the evil racist things America has done to certain minorities. By the time they’ve finished 12 grades of this, those kids are really going to hate America.
Your tax dollars, people! Your money! You pay for this, but you don’t own it! How fair is that?
And why, oh, why does anybody send their children to these propaganda mills?
I’m coming to believe that that’s a sin.
