A little off-topic…
Far-left propaganda is being taught in our schools, and not just by nitwits like this woman.
We sent our kids to private school to get away from this. Since our older two are 10 and 12 years older than the youngest, I have a first-hand multi-generational view of schools and how they’ve changed. When our older two were at the private school, the teachers were mostly on the liberal end of the spectrum, but not blatantly so. Often the kids weren’t sure of the teacher’s politics. (I bought one of my son’s teachers a book of Reagan quotes for a gift once, and he told me he had voted both ways but voted for Obama. (!) We had no clue, because he made kids think, didn’t try to force his opinions on them.
The Bible was taught in the school even though it didn’t have a religious affiliation. It was taught in English, part of a well-rounded education.
In the last two or three years, almost every speaker is concerning race, white privilege, or some such. Many of the teachers hired are blatantly gay/whatever. Virtually all are liberal, and mostly extremely liberal. One teacher has started a club for transexuals. Another for feminists. This year’s summer reading book was I AM JAZZ.
Almost all books read deal have some sort of race/gender issues bent, and most are depressing. Most of this change has taken place in the last two to three years, after the gay headmaster took over.
Their main priority has moved from providing a strong education to indoctrination.
I went to diversity meetings over the last two years to ask where the independence of thought was (the first part of their mission statement.) They just stared at me when I brought it up. What a novel idea!
This is happening all over the country, and not just in liberal bastions of Berkeley and San Francisco.
If my son hadn’t graduated last year, it would have been his last year there regardless. The good thing, if there is one, is that he had to learn to support his conservative beliefs. He was often the only conservative in a class. When he graduated, one of the comments teachers made about him was that he always supported his politics. Not sure they thought it was a good thing. He definitely has a strong conservative core though.
If I had it to do over, I would definitely have home-schooled him.
Now on to 4 years of college!
