Another lawsuit to the rescue!
Last year the California State School Board decided to include prayers to pagan Aztec gods in their “Ethnic Studies” curriculum. For those who are ignorant of history, the Aztec gods were particularly bloodthirsty and human sacrifice on a massive scale was how the Aztecs worshiped them.
California “educators,” citing a need to “confront racism,” blah-blah-blah, reckoned the 1.7 million kiddies in the program ought to pray to Aztec gods. That’s where the Thomas More Society lawsuit came in (https://www.ttownmedia.com/news/state/california-settles-lawsuit-with-parents-removes-aztec-chants-prayers-from-ethnic-studies-curriculum/article_b8162aee-bd94-5a07-b19b-da679b2ff9b8.html): First Amendment says you can’t require anyone to do that.
The board settled the suit out of court, instructing all personnel to knock it off with the Aztec prayers while denying any liability for damages. There was also a lot of grumbling: “educators,” it seems, looked to heathen Aztec gods to counter “racial injustice.” The whole ethic studies buffet is liberally drenched in Critical Race Theory (“All whites are born evil, all non-whites are oppressed,” etc.).
Warning: Just because they’ve been scared off by a lawsuit does not mean the board has come to see the error of its ways. In all likelihood, that will never happen.
The only way to keep children safe from public education is to keep them out of public schools.
