“I send my kids to public school to be ‘educated’ by far-out wackos because _______.”
A “teacher” at Denair Middle School, northern California, recently had to be stopped from handing out to his students a worksheet called “The Gender Unicorn,” which asks children about their “sexual preferences” and “sexual attractions” (https://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2019/08/09/school-leaders-stop-teacher-from-discussing-the-gender-unicorn/). Wow. Produced by “Trans Student Educational Resources.” The “teacher” instructs his seventh and eighth grade students to call him “Mx.”, not “Mr.”
Why do we have people like this teaching in our schools, on our dime? Why do we have no say at all in what we have to pay for?
The principal said she stopped the, er, “lessons” because the alleged teacher didn’t ask her permission before imposing them… and the parents didn’t like it.
Well, gee, folks! How many times do we have to tell you what’s going on in public schools? Don’t you believe us yet? I say “we” and “us” because it’s thousands of people telling the truth and no one’s listening.
At some point it will be too late to save our culture, no matter what we do.
So let’s not get to that point, shall we?
Where does it say that anybody has a “right” to teach America’s children? Like, you get to stand in front of your class and “teach” the joys of communism, whether the town that pays your salary wants you or not?
Watching teachers’ unions, one after another, throw off the mask of sanity and stand before us as out-and-out Marxists, one must truly wonder: Have we got a national death wish? How can it possibly be a good idea, to have people who hate our country teaching our children—in the public schools that we’re stuck paying for?
It was always a mistake to allow teachers to unionize, and now that mistake is coming home to roost. Teachers ought to serve at the pleasure of the public–period. They are employed by the public, paid by the public, pensioned by the public (heaven help us), equipped by public money–I mean, what part of that is so hard to understand?
We have a right, or flamin’ well should have the right, to decide who gets to teach our children and who doesn’t. If we don’t want commies teaching communism, we shouldn’t have to pay for commies teaching communism.
Teachers’ unions have been bad for education, bad for children, and bad for America. Once upon a time, over a hundred years ago, teachers provided the most articulate opposition to the crazy plans of “educators.” Now it’s the teachers who carry out those plans.
Public education will destroy us.
Well, we’ve gotta start somewhere. Maybe here.
President Donald Trump, in his new “Education Federalism Executive Order,” has directed the Secretary of Education to undertake a 300-day review of assorted “regulations and guidance for school districts” perpetrated by the Obama administration, and to “repeal or modify” measures that she deems “an overreach by the federal government,” according to The Washington Times (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/apr/26/donald-trump-pull-feds-out-k-12-education/).
That would include the “guidance” to schools to let the boys into the girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms–to name just one of many idiocies.
The purpose of the order is to restore control of their own school districts to states and local communities–control that has been increasingly usurped by the federal government. I don’t believe this can be done without defunding and abolishing both the federal and state departments of education and breaking the power of the Far Left teachers’ unions. A president does not have the ability to do that. But we praise President Trump for at least doing what he can. It may lead to better things.
The underlying problem is the statist ideology that permeates public education, and has done so since public education was invented. A hundred years ago, the teachers’ unions opposed the radical schemes of “educators” in high places. They don’t anymore.
Our government was designed by our country’s founders to serve us; but it has re-designed itself to rule us.
That’s what needs to be changed.
I feel more secure already!
I’m a fantasy writer. It’s my job to make up weird stuff. I wouldn’t dream of standing in front of a full classroom and saying the stuff I make up is real.
But no such scruples inhibit our public school teachers’ unions. For instance:
So the teacher has the kids write down, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”
LOL. As if a tyrannical government has ever made anybody more secure! Do you think the people in Venezuela feel more secure than we do? Would you rather live in China? Lots of security there! Just don’t you dare step out of line.
Once upon a time, a “teacher” who engaged in such an exercise would be fired as quick as boiled asparagus. The community wouldn’t stand for such lessons.
But we have let them take away the community’s authority over the schools. Now Far Left Crazy owns the schools.
If you thought your kids were safe from “gay” evangelism in a Utah public high school–Red state, full of strait-laced Mormons–well, you thought wrong.
Parents are upset that the school recently hosted guest speakers from, uh, “Moab Pride”–like you couldn’t guess that that would be about?–supposedly for “poetry slam workshops,” whatever the devil that is, “on tolerance and acceptance”… which turned into an exercise in “identity mapping”–the superintendent of schools admitted he didn’t know what that is; and neither to we–in which students were called upon “to reveal their sexual orientation and gender identity” (https://townhall.com/columnists/toddstarnes/2017/10/18/guest-speaker-tells-students-im-queer-and-im-trumps-worst-enemy-n2396815).
You can’t beat the superintendent’s excuse: “It caught the school off guard.” Oh, well, no problem then!
Red state, schmed state: the same teachers’ unions, and the same “gay” evangelism. They’ll do it every time.
Controlled by the same far-left teachers’ unions in all 50 states, America’s public schools are dedicated to preaching sexual anarchy, gender-bending, race-hustling, socialism, and all the rest of the leftids’ DeLuxe Fun Pack. If you send your kids to public schools, that’s what they’re going to get. How many thousand more examples do you need before you see that?
It looks more and more like the only safe place for your children to be educated is at home, by Christian families.
