As much as we respected our teachers, especially since growing up in better times, it has come time to reassess the curricula and teacher's communist unions, recognizing that activist teachers are turning out functional illiterates who are being taught to hate their fellow students based on the color of their skin.
In the topsy-turvy world of the progressive communist democrats, embracing and teaching communism and racism under the guise of critical race theory seems to be more important than teaching reading, writing, arithmetic, history, and good citizenship. Likewise, the sexualization of young children who know more about condoms and gay sex practices than they do about the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
How bad is it?
Consider that Black Lives Matter, touted by the Biden Administration and the two most powerful teachers' unions, issued this statement on the political protests occurring in Cuba, a communist dictatorship and an increasingly failing state held together by armed, brutal secret police willing to snatch young girls off the street for imprisonment and torture.
Students are being taught that the Cuban revolution is a struggle for equality and dignity and little about the evils of communism. Students are being taught that Black Lives Matter is all about civil rights. Schools are pressured into supporting Black Lives Matter. And corporations are coerced into donating millions to a racist, communist, un-American, anti-White, and anti-Semitic group of thugs. Likewise, the progressive communist democrat propagandists in the mainstream media continue the charade.
Consider the framing of current events, the precursors to history that will be taught to future students...
Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo.
This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans’ right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba’s current crisis. Since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies, costing the tiny island nation an estimated $130 billion.”
Without that money, it is harder for Cuba to acquire medical equipment needed to develop its own COVID-19 vaccines and equipment for food production. This comes in spite of the country’s strong medical care and history of lending doctors and nurses to disasters around the world,“ apparently acknowledging that Cuba’s “WORLD CLASS” socialist healthcare fails without American intervention.
The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination,” they continued. “United States leaders have tried to crush this Revolution for decades. Instead of international amity, respect, and goodwill, the U.S. government has only instigated suffering for the country’s 11 million people – of which 4 million are black and brown.”
[OCS: The people of Cuba are being punished and brutalized by their own government, whose self-determination seems to be governed at gunpoint.
Don't they mean 11 million color-blind comrades?]
Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent, from protecting black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur,” the group said of one of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists, “through granting her asylum, to supporting black liberation struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau and South Africa.
Now, we look to President Biden to end the embargo, something Barack Obama called for in 2016. This embargo is a blatant human rights violation and it must come to an end.”
Explain how teaching communism, racism, and perversion helps children thrive later in life?
When the power goes out and the batteries die, what then?
Today’s children cannot seem to function without their electronic devices, their digital watch, smartphone, internet search, and writing features such as cut-and-paste, spellcheck, and grammar checkers. Most of academia is now based on collecting the quotes of others, adding a summary, and calling it scholarship. Teachers and professors are dumbing down children to produce another decade of function illiterates that become social justice warriors to support communism. Unions refusing to test teachers for teaching competency and subject matter knowledge. Lowering testing criteria to further hide how drastically teachers are failing our students while demanding more and more money.
The basic purpose of education is to socialize children, develop their latent abilities, and prepare them to function in life and compete in the job market.
Consider what Jason Riley, writing in the Wall Street Journal, has noted…
“A majority of American fourth- and eighth-graders can’t read or do math at grade level, according to the Education Department. And that assessment is from 2019, before the learning losses from pandemic school closures.
Whenever someone asks me about critical race theory, that statistic comes to mind. What’s the priority, teaching math and reading, or turning elementary schools into social-justice boot camps?
Given that black and Hispanic students are more likely to be lagging academically, it’s a question that anyone professing to care deeply about social inequality might consider. Learning gaps manifest themselves in all kinds of ways later in life, from unemployment rates and income levels to the likelihood of teenage pregnancy, substance abuse and involvement with the criminal-justice system. Our jails and prisons already have too many woke illiterates.” <Source>
How can teachers explain this?
We have previously discussed the continued failing of the public schools in preparing African American students for college or the workforce. I have specifically discussed the horrific figures coming out of Baltimore despite being one of the top districts in terms of per capita spending. Recent data now offers another chilling statistic: 41 percent of students in the Baltimore system have a 1.0 (D) GPA or less.
Project Baltimore obtained a chart assembled by Baltimore City Schools. Keep in mind that this is almost half of the 20,500 public high school students in Baltimore.
What astonishes me is the lack of criticism of the school and political leadership of these major cities who have failed the African American community for decades. It is hard to imagine how the school system could possibly do worse while receiving some of the highest levels of federal and state expenditures per student.
This is not due to a lack of funding or support. It is a catastrophic failure that is not being addressed in the media despite occurring annually in cities like New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and other media hubs. <Source>
We are allowing the progressive communist democrats and their communist unions to control education. How is it that Black Lives Matter does not march for all of the Black Lives lost in the inner cities? Or the number of Black Lives destroyed by sub-standard education?
Meanwhile, the mainstream media and the American people can waffle on and on about freedom and liberty, but when the chips are down, they fold like a cheap suit. When will the Biden Administration and the Democrat Party condemn communism and the communist front group known as Black Lives Matter? And when will "We the People" demand an end to communist public employees' unions and the promotion of communism as a valid economic ideology?
We so are so screwed
