Can We Make California’s Schools Worse?

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

So you want to be a teacher!

Starting with the 2020 school year, a new California state law will make it illegal to suspend students for disobeying their teachers (https://www.kget.com/news/state-news/california-public-schools-cant-suspend-students-for-disobeying-teachers-new-law-says/?fbclid=IwAR2QG91Q1DWFdYRyuOTFBzyIP6HZvhaOC0mcqNamb-_pdH3PqBkHukqZJ7M). What an idea!

This will apply in 2020 to kids in grades 1-6. In 2021 through 2025, it will be expanded to cover students in grades 6-8.

The “reason,” as the virtue-signaling legislators call it, is because suspension for misbehavior is “disproportionately used against students of color.”

As a former teacher, I can’t imagine the chaos that will ensue. Suspension is a next-to-last resort, expulsion being the last resort, for getting disruptive students out of the classroom so that some education, at least, can go on. To discard that disciplinary measure is to give up all hope of maintaining order. And don’t tell me I’m wrong, because I’ve been there, done that.

Of course, none of these Far Left Crazy legislators will ever have to worry about trying to teach in a classroom where hooligans run wild. Nope, they’re perfectly safe from the consequences of their actions. They usually are. They make sure of that.

Government by liberals means ruin.

 


A Victory for the Good Guys

Harmless-looking, isn’t it? But hopefully we have learned by now that nothing offered us by Planned Parenthood is harmless.

Sane and decent people prevailed over sexual anarchists and weirdos this month in Worcester, Massachusetts, persuading the local school board to vote down another Planned Parenthood “sex education initiative” in the classrooms (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/26/sex-ed-showdown-parents-defeat-planned-parenthood-in-blue-massachusetts/).

The proposed curriculum was called “Making Proud Choices.” Like this is stuff to be proud of. I prefer not to repeat the details, but the gist of it is that “sexual abstinence” means every imaginable sexual activity and technique except normal intercourse.

I’m pretty sure that if anybody had ever tried to introduce anything like that “initiative” into our local public school when I was ten years old, that person would be lucky to get out of town alive.

Lots and lots of parents showed up at the public meeting to object to the scheme, and the school board voted it down.

Better would be for all the parents to pull their kids out of the public schools altogether and give them a Christian education. But not having “Making Proud Choices” kicking around is of course better than having it.

We are thankful to the Massachusetts Family Institute for leading the effort to block this wickedness.


‘Teacher’ Mocks Students’ Religious Beliefs

Tell me one more time: you send your kids to public school to be “educated” by Far Left unionized kooks because __________,

A teacher at Johnston High School, North Carolina, has been suspended–with full pay, of course–for segregating her students according to their religious beliefs, and mocking the students who believe in God (https://jocoreport.com/teacher-under-investigation-for-segregating-students-based-on-religious-personal-beliefs/).

“This is an unfortunate incident,” said the superintendent of schools. Ya think? So he’ll “investigate it.”

The alleged teacher had the students line up on opposite sides of the classroom, according to whether they believed in God or not; then whether they supported abortion or not; and then whether they supported “gay rights” or not. Having finished that phase of her agenda, the teacher went on to mock the students who didn’t share her own depraved and indefensible beliefs.

I think you have to commit suicide before they actually stop paying you, if you’re a unionized schoolteacher.

We pay for these schools. Why do we have no say about who gets to teach there?


Chicago Teachers Still on Strike

Members of the Chicago Teachers Union and SEIU Local 73 march through the Loop after a rally, three days before the unions could walk off the job on strike, Monday afternoon, Oct. 14, 2019.

When they’re not junketing down to Venezuela to praise the Maduro dictatorship, when they’re not feverishly pushing socialism and “transgender” in their classrooms, the Chicago Teachers Union is on strike–which is where they’ve been now for the better part of a week (https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/10/21/20924561/chicago-teachers-strike-updates-cps-tuesday-classes-canceled).

Is there any doubt that these “teachers” are communists? Red banner with clenched fist–that ought to tell you something, eh?

Communists who want more money.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, trying to resolve the labor dispute, revealed her total cluelessness when she spoke of how kids “won’t be in classrooms with teachers who hold the keys to their success.” Did I hear that right?

Democrat presidential wannabes are flocking to the support of the striking communists. Bernie Sanders was first on the scene. Now Elizabeth Warren says she’ll go, too–because the communist teachers, she says, are “fighting for the future of our students.” I’m surprised she wasn’t struck by lightning for telling such a lie.

But parents, this is a golden opportunity. Now is your chance to go on strike against these money-wasting awful schools! Do you realize that if you keep your kids out of those schools, there’ll be no more Chicago Teachers Union? Dictator Maduro will have to find some other American communists to lick his boots.

Hey! You pay all the bills–but you don’t get to decide who teaches in those schools and who doesn’t, or what gets taught and what doesn’t. All you do is pay! What kind of a sucker deal is that–huh? Homeschool! Christian school! And leave those jerks with their red banners out there to twist in the wind.

 


Public Education Must Die

Image result for images of  global society

Sorry, but there’s just no longer any excuse for continuing this colossal waste of money and crippling of children’s minds. We could be feeding hungry nations with the money we dole out to teachers’ unions.

For instance:

A charter school in Atlanta made the news recently when its dingbat principal decided to get rid of the Pledge of Allegiance and replace it with some mummery cooked up by kids and some sort of “leadership team.” The idea was to “create a better pledge” that would stress “civic responsibility to… our global society” (http://eagnews.org/parents-fight-back-after-school-drops-pledge-of-allegiance-for-student-authored-oath-to-global-society/).

What? What is she talking about? What “global society”?

Well, gee, she says, it was just “an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community.” Do you know what the deuce that means? I don’t! Where’s my Blather Bingo card?

Anyway, word got out, the poor peasants who pay this idiot’s salary (and benefits! don’t forget fantastic benefits!) got exceedingly ticked off, they lit a fire under some of their elected representatives and got them ticked off, too, and the school dropped the plan before the new oath to the global society could be written. Don’t you wish we could’ve seen the finished product?

The principal also said she decided to replace the Pledge of Allegiance because the kids weren’t standing up for it or reciting it.

Well, whose fault is that?

When I taught in a certain public school district in the 1990s, I was never in a classroom in which anyone but me stood up for the Pledge of Allegiance. Mostly it sounded like a penguin rookery.

Again, whose fault is that?

There is no meaningful education that public school can give you that your family can’t. Or they can send you to a decent Christian school.

But, boy, if you think our republic can survive the constant gnawing-away at its roots by teachers’ union members and other Far Left Wackos–hey, you’d better think again.
