Remember when it used to be that, if you paid for something, you owned it?

Now we pay for public, ahem, “education”–and they own us!

School Blasts Mom for Giving Daughter Oreos

Nothing would be a greater blessing to America than the total repudiation of our entire public education system, from kindergarten on up through the universities. We don’t need it anymore! If we ever did.

Complete the sentence and win a tin foil hat: I send my kids to public schools where the “teachers” mock me and despise my values because __________.

Portland School Board: Trees Might Be Racist

Pine tree tattoo by Ella at Wicked Good Ink Portland, Maine : ImagesOfMaine

So they were thinking about making an evergreen tree the mascot of their high school sports teams… but then the Portland Board of (LOL) “Education” had second thoughts.

Trees, they cogitated, might be… racist (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/04/trees_just_might_be_racist_portland_oregon_board_of_education_director_worries.html). Because, y’see, “trees” were sometimes used in lynchings.

It’s hard to imagine someone being lynched from a pine tree, but, hey, it’s the thought that counts! Or the lack thereof.

All lynchings were committed by people. Maybe people should be abolished, too–but only after they cut down all the trees.

We leave it to you to imagine what kind of “education” can be provided by characters who think like this. If we can even use the word “think” in this context.

Well, if we’re going to be governed by fools, we might as well have our children educated by fools, too.

Why we allow this is a mystery to me. Unless there are more numbskulls out there than we thought.

My Newswithviews Column, March 25 (‘It Just Plain Stinks’)

The headline refers to our public education system, which just plain stinks.

It Just Plain Stinks

I think they made it bad on purpose–don’t you? With the schools controlled by Far Left teacher unions and crack-brained “education” theorists, Job. No. 1 for the schools is to produce mobs of useful idiots for the Democrat Party to manipulate as needed. This is why they want to keep lowering the voting age. With enough illegals pouring in and obtaining cheap citizenship, and enough hypnotized 14-year-olds voting, Democrats won’t have to go to the trouble of rigging elections anymore.

The Wrong Kid on the School Board

Delaware State PTA to host School Board Candidate Forums in June 2020 | MyLO

Chairman Mao County, Maryland, has a problem with its school board.

One of the eight board members is to be a public school student, aged 11 to 16, and all public school kids, 11-16, are allowed to vote for this board member–who, if elected, will get to vote on school district policies and expenditures, just like the adult members.

That was working just fine until the last election, when the wrong child got elected. The adult members got together yesterday for a secret meeting to discuss what to do about it: for 12-year-old Osgood Pennyworth just isn’t fitting in.

“It’s all that tomfool middle school principal’s fault!” groused Mr. Bolgani. ” He’s supposed to ensure that only the right kind of student runs for this office. How did Pennyworth slip past him? Was he drunk again?”

“Please, comrade!” said Ms. Dango. “How was he to know what kind of influence this wretched capitalist child’s parents would have on him? I told you we should’ve coughed up the money for those in-home surveillance cameras!”

Ms. Histah complained, “The child’s family is the problem–the parents are non-intersectional, cissexual, cisgender, non-inclusive Racists! I think from now on we have to separate the Youth Member from xer family for as long as xe sits on the board.”

“The problem is parents, period!” grumbled Mr. Tublat. “Get rid of the parents and you get rid of the problem. We’ve already separated the parents from their money. Now could we please get down to the business of separating them from their children? The family is an archaism! In the interests of pure education, it has to go!”

Far into the night ran the secret meeting. In the end, a proposal to “whack” young Osgood Pennyworth failed by one vote.

The board will meet again tomorrow.

Idaho May Ban “Teaching Racism” in Schools

House Education Committee votes to repeal English, math and science  standards - East Idaho News

Idaho’s House Education Committee has proposed a bill to ban “racist filth” from being taught in the state’s public schools (https://www.bigcountrynewsconnection.com/idaho/bill-would-prohibit-students-from-learning-about-racism-and-sexism/article_e17ac3b6-e2f0-5061-8732-d99661994c7d.html). Schools that teach it anyway would, for starters, lose 10% of their state funding.

What do they mean by “teaching racism”? Among other things, the proposed law would ban the teaching of the following:

*Your own race can make you “unconsciously racist”

*You are responsible, personally, for bad things done by other people in the past

*”Merit-based systems” are inherently racist/sexist/blah-blah

*The whole state of Idaho is racist.

I think that would qualify as “racist filth,” don’t you?

Democrats don’t, though. All the Democrats on the committee walked out to protest the discussion. They, of course, want the schools to teach such things.

Many things have to happen before this proposal is enacted into law; but you’ve got to start somewhere, and here’s as good a place as any. Idaho, we salute you.

Our public schools are used by Far Left teacher unions and “education” theorists to indoctrinate children into hating themselves and hating their country. The Democrat Party is solidly committed to this enterprise. Those campaign contributions by the teacher unions are the chief cause of this.

We believe public education is too far gone to be reformed and that the whole system ought to be scrapped. Children are better off in Christian schools or in homeschooling.

Go ahead–try to convince us that teaching self-hate and anti-Americanism is something we ought to be doing with our school tax dollars.

 

More Lib Mischief: Letting Children Vote

PRESCHOOL FAMILY 4120 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto - Palo Alto Adult School

I hope that book is not a voting guide for two-year-olds.

We’ve heard Squeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi call for the voting age to be lowered to 16; but Howard County, Maryland, has lowered it to… ten!

Yes, a 10-year-old can vote in Howard County–in the school board election (https://publicinterestlegal.org/blog/pilf-client-demands-end-to-howard-county-md-school-boards-election-scheme-that-lets-children-vote-for-school-board/). The kiddies can elect a “student member” who can vote on policy with the adults.

Of course a lawsuit has been filed over this. But meanwhile, if you want to be eligible to vote for the student member of the board, you’ve got to be at least in 6th grade, up to 11th, and attending a public school. If you attend a religious school, you don’t get a vote–although your family still has to pay the taxes that fund the public schools that they don’t use.

There are eight members on the board: two elected at large, five to represent residential districts, and the student member.

See if you can follow this. If you’re an ordinary adult resident, you are represented by three board members: the two elected at large, and the one from your own neighborhood. But if you are a 12-year-old living next door, you are represented by four members, the student member being added to the other three. Not quite fair, says the lawsuit; and not constitutional, either: violates the 14th Amendment.

Now, Democrats want incarcerated felons and illegal aliens voting. Of course they want the kiddies voting, too! Kids in public school are being indoctrinated by Far Left Crazy teacher unions every day–of course Democrats want them voting!

The plan is to turn ordinary Americans into a powerless minority in their own country.

And so far it’s working.

California Schools to Teach Worship of Aztec Gods

There is no such thing as 'Human Sacrifice'”

As long as it’s not the Bible, it’s okay for our schools!

If you thought that last school nooze was bad, get a load of this. No, I’m not making it up. And yes, it’s California again. One is tempted to add “of course.”

A proposed new “ethnic studies curriculum” would teach the kids that they’re all “oppressed,” they need to launch a “counter-genocide” against “white Christians,” and they should pray to the Aztec gods to give them power to become “warriors for social justice” (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/03/californias-proposed-ethnic-studies-curriculum-urges-students-chant-aztec-deity-human-sacrifice-cannibalism-calls-counter-genocide-white-christians/). Click the link if you want to read the Marxist blather that goes with it.

The California Dept. of Education is expected to vote on this scheme next week.

The chief reason that there is no more Aztec Empire is that their “gods” were bloodthirsty idols that demanded tens of thousands of human sacrifices a year. The Aztecs’ neighbors got rather vexed at being dragged off to have their hearts torn out for this or that false god.

The question must be asked: are our nation’s “educators” in general, and California’s in particular, all stark, raving mad? Next question: Why do we tolerate this? Why do we tamely pay our taxes for it? Why do we continue to send our children to these schools to be taught such wicked nonsense? Maybe we’re the ones who are crazy.

Far Left Crazy is pulling out all the stops to destroy our country. This is war, and we must win… if we want to go on living. No schiff, this is really getting serious. Our public education system has become an existential threat to our nation’s survival.

Pull your kids out NOW.

Buffalo Public Schools: ‘Failure Factory’

Ready for another belt of bad news? Sorry, but we have to know what we’re up against.

The city of Buffalo’s public schools have gone full-throttle on an America-hating, race-hustling curriculum–at all grade levels–which Christopher Rufo has called, in his report, a “Failure Factory” (https://www.city-journal.org/buffalo-public-schools-critical-race-theory-curriculum).

Paid for by the undefended public!

You name the abuse, and they’ve got it–all orchestrated by a “diversity czar.” It’s based on an overarching condemnation of all “white people”–whom, the kids are told, “all play a part in perpetuating systemic racism.” They want to start on this when the kids are four years old.

Teacher training, as described by a teacher who wishes to remain anonymous: “A series of scoldings, guilt trips, and demands to demean themselves.” And that’s just the good part.

Meanwhile, only 18% of the students here are proficient in math and only 20% in English. But that doesn’t matter because everything is the fault of evil racist white people and their no-good racist country, the United States.

And this will turn out well for us… how?

Our public education system, the costliest ever devised by human beings, is too far gone to be repaired. It must be abandoned. It must be replaced. How can I even find the words for how important this is? We have entrusted our children’s education to people who hate us and want to ruin our country. Why in the world should we keep doing that?

Once upon a time the people who paid for the schools owned them, and decided who should teach and what should be taught. For the sake of our country’s very survival, we have to return to such a time.

If the things these unionized “teachers” say to white children were ever said to black children, the government would come down on them like a hammer. Because it would be racism! Why in the world do we allow this?

At the moment, with our whole government in the hands of Democrats, absolutely the only thing we can do is to pull our children out of those schools and pray the system will die from lack of nourishment. Homeschool the children, or put them in a Christian school. Parents can also get together to form homeschooling co-ops.

What we have now will prove deadly to us as a nation.

Whole School Board Has to Resign

https://abc30.com/school-board-hot-mic-oakley-schools-meeting-video/10350453/

Not knowing they were being live-streamed, thinking the camera and microphones were off, the school board governing the Oakley Union Elementary School District, California, lit into the parents whose taxes pay for the wretched schools. And now they’ve all had to resign (https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56156795).

These schools have been closed during the reign of King COVID, and parents have begun to think they’re getting a raw deal: not satisfied with the “remote learning” provided to their children.

So of course one genius on the board quipped that the parents just want their baby-sitters back–so they can take drugs all day, suggested another. Plenty of profanity employed, too.

Oakley, a suburb of San Francisco, has a population of about 43,000. In just a few days, some 7,000 residents had signed a petition calling for the whole board’s ouster. The members resigned before the petition could become unanimous.

Yo, public! Your public schools exist to enrich teachers’ unions and to turn your children against their country and their families. That’s what they do. Anything else is just an afterthought. Look how those school board members despise the people who pay for the schools. As soon as they thought the mike was off–kapow!

You’re already staggering along with “remote learning.” Take it one step farther and school your kids yourself. You can’t possibly do a worse job than the public schools. And if the cost is too high–and it’s getting lower all the time–families can form homeschooling co-ops to share the expenses. And there are Christian schools.

I mean, why would you ever want your kids “educated” by people who despise you?

‘A Victim of… Musical Chairs’ (2018)

See the source image

I wonder how this lawsuit turned out. If I were the judge, I would have jailed the plaintiffs and their lawyer for wasting the court’s time.

A Victim of… Musical Chairs

You’d swear people are forgetting how to be human. I hated school, but I did enjoy the games–musical chairs, huckle-buckle beanstalk (what fun that was!), duck-duck-goose… Little did I know, or even suspect, or imagine, that “forcing” kids to play with other children “of disparate build” and abilities exposes everyone but the school janitor to unbearable mental anguish and emotional trauma blah-blah-blah.

They’re trying to turn us into Eloi. So they can be Morlocks and eat us.
