How many of you have children?
The stuff going on in our classrooms right now IS the issue. It is the epicenter of the entire leftist disease. If we can take back the schools and the universities, we can take back the country.
At least two southern states, Arkansas and Georgia have reportedly decided to take on the fight of changing the radical leftist doctrine taught in schools.
Lawmakers in Arkansas have tried and failed to take out the “1619 Project” a New York Times piece of left wing propaganda that isn’t even true to history, but they ARE trying.
According to reports the measure failed because there was pushback from the teachers, teachers unions etc, but OF COURSE these people pushed back.
They are all ardent leftists.
Why is the New York Times teaching our children?
Imagine if you had your curriculum brought to you by Pepsi!
No one would seriously ever allow this to happen, so why are our children taught by a much more dangerous private company?
Take a look:
The Associated Press reported:
An Arkansas House panel on Tuesday rejected legislation that would have banned schools from teaching a New York Times project on slavery’s legacy, one of several attempts in Republican states to limit how race is taught.
The proposal banning schools from using the Times’ “1619 Project” failed on a voice vote the same day the state Senate rejected a resolution that cited the country’s “ongoing positive record on race and slavery” and attacked Democrats’ history on civil rights issues.
The 1619 Project ban drew opposition from teachers, civil rights leaders and the state’s top education official. Similar bans have been proposed in Mississippi and Iowa, and critics have called it an effort to whitewash crucial parts of the nation’s history.
“What you’re doing is censoring and you’re taking away the ability of those who have been trained to stand before our students and teach and provide trained guidance in curriculum development,” Democratic Rep. Reginald Murdock said during a roughly two-hour hearing on the proposal.
The project, which examined slavery and its consequences as the central thread of U.S. history, was published in 2019, the 400th anniversary of the first arrival of African slaves. The project was also turned into a popular podcast and materials were developed for schools to use.
The Washington Times had more on the story:
In Georgia, a Republican lawmaker is pressing higher education officials about the kinds of racially attuned workshops and courses are percolating in the state’s public universities.
“I’m trying to focus on the activities going on here, which I think are demeaning to some students, and this business of labeling people as ‘oppressors,’” said Arkansas state Rep. Mark Lowery, who introduced two bills targeting critical race theory. “They believe teaching assimilation is racist.”
The legislative moves are reactions to liberal educators’ increased incorporation of critical race theory in curricula.
Critical race theory has appeared in public schools, private schools and charter schools.
School districts across the country, including the Los Angeles Unified School District, declared the first week of February as “Black Lives Matter School Week of Action.”
