Is ‘Education’ Really Going Crazy?

Angry teacher Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

Is it us, finally seeing what was there all along? Or has “education” really and truly run right off the rails in just the past few years?

I pose that as a question to my readers. What do you think? ‘Cause I can’t quite decide what I think. Sometimes one way, sometimes the other, and sometimes both.

They are pushing “transgender” like they’ve gotta get it done or die tomorrow. They are fomenting racial animosities. They are grooming children, some of them as young as kindergarten, for sex. Crikey! What kind of people have they got coming out of the teachers’ colleges? And who’s teaching them?

It has begun to spill over into religious schools. But the public schools are lost, broken beyond repair. As long as teachers’ unions stand in the way, the schools will never be fixed–not even a band-aid. Our only practical alternative is homeschooling. Pull the kids out and watch the public schools go bust. Convert the buildings to some other use. Let the former teachers’ union wackos pump gas or sweep the floor at the 7-11.

Yes. I’m afraid “education” really is as bad as it looks.

Libs Hate Being Called ‘Groomers’

Gender Unicorn -

Just one of many “lessons” taught in the schools by groomers

Florida now has a law prohibiting school teachers from talking sex, sex, and more sex with children in grades K-3. There is, of course, no reason why any sane person would want to do that. But leftids think it’s an evil plot to inhibit children from becoming homosexual and trannies, so they call it “the Don’t Say Gay Law” and have their knickers in a twist over it.

But why would anyone want to “teach” young children about the endless varieties of aberrant sexual behavior? “Shut up!” they explained.

Lately the term “groomers” has been catching on. More and more people use it to suggest that these “lessons” are taught to prepare children to become the sexual playthings of older perverts: “grooming” them for it. The fact that the label’s catching on suggests that the public is catching on–and doesn’t like what it sees.

So libs and teachers’ unions have been going bonkers over it, frantically objecting to that label being applied to them (https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/04/06/liberals-freak-out-over-being-called-groomers-n546263).

Well, sunshine, you reap what you sow. If you don’t want to be called groomers, stop trying to immerse very young children in your twisted visions of sexuality. For that matter, don’t do it to older children, either.

See how long the grooming lessons last, if paying school tax ever becomes optional.

Good News: School ‘Equity’ Policy Nixed by Federal Judge

The Camden Enrollment System has a Thumb on the Scale | Stephen Danley | Rutgers University

Not that anybody really, truly needed a judge to tell us so, but as of last week, it’s official: the Fairfax County (Virginia) school board’s “equity policy” is, a federal court judge declared, “flatly illegal” (https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/4046322/posts).

What do schoolies mean by “equity”?

Well, in this case, “equity” means that wherever school officials find any group of whoever “under-represented” or “over-represented” in any aspect of school life, it’s probably the result of [trumpet fanfare] Systemic Racism–and it requires “positive” racial discrimination to correct it. For instance, if Asian kids make up, say, 15% of your student population, but 45% of your Advanced Placement science students–well hell’s bells, we can’t have that!!! Gotta weed some o’ them Asians out of AP! And replace them with kids who aren’t anywhere near as qualified… so then you’ve got to lower the standards and here we go again…

The judge issued a summary judgment against the schools’ “equity” baloney.

That means they have to stop.

Remember–it’s only “racism” when we do it! When they do it, it’s “equity.”

Down with public education. Make it go away.

Teacher… Uh… Bites Students

New alma mater for this high school–theme from Jaws

Somehow nothing like this ever happened when I was in high school.

A teacher at a Florida high school–see? even in a Red state, your kids are not safe from public “educators”–has been placed on paid administrative leave (they never get fired) for… oh, boy… biting two students (https://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/central-florida-teacher-charged-for-allegedly-biting-students-over-jar-of-pickles/2708239/).

Seems the Educator took a jar of pickles from the school store without paying for it, and when the two kids minding the store tried to take it back… she bit them.

(“Well, I heard they hadn’t had a bite in three days–so I bit them.”)

She admits to having “licked” the students. Oh, well, schiff, that makes a big difference, doesn’t it?

What does a public school teacher have to do, to be fired outright? Commit suicide?

Hey, out there! How many of you were ever bitten by one of your high school teachers? Honk if you’ve been licked. (Silence…)

Complete the sentence without having conniptions and win a tin foil hat! “I send my children to public school to be ‘educated’ by out-to-lunch kid-biting wackos from the teachers’ union because __________.”

Come on, there’s got to be a reason for it.

My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 24 (‘How Our School Boards Turned Against Us’

Twisted measure to silence voices at school board meetings: arrest them

Crushed between intrusive government and aggressive, increasingly Far Left teachers’ unions, local school boards are nowhere near what they used to be. They’ve gone from being representatives to overlords. The traditional school board, ordinary citizens serving their community, is a thing of the past.

How Our School Boards Turned Against Us

See, our freedom is being gnawed away, a little bit here, a little bit there, and bigger bits over there and over there. It wasn’t so long ago that Canada, Australia, and New Zealand were “free” countries.

And no one, and nothing, plays a bigger part in wiping away our liberties than public education–with the local school boards showing their communities who’s boss. If anyone complains, they sic the FBI on them. Nice.

It wasn’t always this way. I know. I saw.

Chicago Teachers Back on Strike

Thousands of Chicago teachers go on strike after failing to reach contract deal - ABC News

Honk if you think teachers’ unions have been good for America. The aides in the white coats will by with you as soon as possible.

Say! Is that the same Chicago Teachers’ Union that sent a delegation to Venezuela several years ago… to “learn more” about socialism? And pay homage to Hugo Chavez? Why, I believe it is.

The union has just voted, by 73%, to go back on strike all throughout the city. All the kiddies will have to go back on “remote learning.”

They’re pretty serious about this strike: a delegate has threatened to “report” any “dissenters” who showed up for work. He has not gotten around to saying what will happen to dissenters.

Yo, people of Chicago! They keep opening the door of escape for you, and you don’t go through! This is your chance to free yourselves from the Far Left Crazy toxic foolery that we call “public education.” Come on! Do you really want your kids “educated” by these wackos? Those “teachers” hate you, hate your country, hate your way of life–you should be encouraging them to strike all year. These commies belong in front of empty classrooms, teaching empty seats and collecting empty paychecks.

We have never before been shown the heights and the depths of wicked ignorance as our teachers’ unions–and school boards!–have demonstrated in just the last two years. We had no idea how bad it was!

But that excuse ain’t workin’ anymore.

This Weirdo Was a ‘Teacher’

What they teach, and the people whom they hire to teach it–well, come on: why are your kids still in public school?

One of those things they teach is “Critical Race Theory,” the doctrine that all white people are born racist and every problem in the world is your fault if you’re white. It enjoys public support only from the most addled white liberals–like this guy in New Hampshire:

‘I Hope You Get Skull F***ed to Death:’ Opponent of Anti-CRT Law Pleads Guilty to Threatening Lawmaker

See, if there’s anybody in your state legislature who’s against CRT, and votes to ban it, you, the, um, “teacher,” threaten that legislator and his family with grievous bodily harm.

Okay, he’s a nut. He last held down a teaching job in 2013. We are not told how he lost it, or what he’s been doing for the past eight years. Let us forbear to speculate.

But if he were the only wacko in the education system, they wouldn’t be teaching CRT from coast to coast–and sicking the FBI on any parent who objected to it.

Do you want your children “educated” by kooks like this?

Guess Who’s Producing ‘Critical Race Theory’ Video!

IPAC ready to confront and contain harm to mankind caused by Communist Party of China - The Sunday Guardian Live

We’re doing this because we love you, America!

You’d think a country that actually has concentration camps for its racial minorities, and round-the-clock surveillance for everybody else, would be embarrassed to call another country “racist.”

But if you thought that, you’d be wrong.

The Chinese Global Television Network, owned by the Chinese Communist Party’s Propaganda Dept.–hey, at least they’re honest about having a propaganda department: we call ours “the mainstream news”–has created Critical Race Theory video for broadcast on America’s airwaves (https://thefederalist.com/2021/08/18/communist-china-adds-video-promoting-critical-race-theory-to-propaganda-lineup/).

Hypocritical Race Theory–let’s call it what it is–teaches that all white people are evil racists, America is an evil racist country that deserves taking down, etc., etc. Meanwhile China’s Muslim Uighurs languish in concentration camps until they’re murdered so their organs can be harvested and sold to rich people who don’t care where they came from.

The video teaches that it’s not enough just to be “not racist,” ’cause that just supports the status quo; you have to be “anti-racist.” That is, you have to admit that you, your family, your country, your church are all no-good stinkin’ racists and need to be punished for it. Liberals actually believe this.

Now, why would communist China want to get involved in America’s struggles with Hypocritical Race Theory? Why would Red China want to spread that theory?

If you answered “Because they love us and want to help,” you are a kook.

Now You See It, Now You Don’t–Again

Virginia school accused of indoctrinating kids with 'Woke Kindergarten' video

Does your local school district need a “Woke Kindergarten” video that features a child saying, “I feel save when there are no police”? (https://www.themix.net/2021/08/virginia-elementary-schools-woke-kindergarten-video-infers-children-should-fear-cops/)

“Educators” keep letting these things slip into the open. Then when the public gets upset, they delete them from their websites.

An elementary school in Fairfax County, Virginia, got into hot water recently for posting “Woke Kindergarten” in its website–along with Hypocritical Race Theory “teaching,” Black Lives Matter propaganda, and “news articles critical of white parents.”

Oh, well! “School officials” said the posting was “by mistake”–ya think?–and was deleted as soon as they realized it was there.

If you want your kids schooled by these racist crackpots, there’s something very wrong with you.

Public education has far outlived its usefulness and needs to be abolished.

If public education were a car, would you buy it?

But that’s a silly question, because they force you to buy it whether you want it or not, whether you use it or not.

‘Public Education’ as a Car: A Parable  

We are getting a raw deal. Our country is “educating” itself to death. I don’t mean that as a figure of speech.

Look at our government. We Americans must be the biggest suckers ever to walk the earth.
