How Many Denials Were There?

Look what I found:

For Joanne Barber, a second grade teacher at Crestwood Elementary School in Kent, last year’s Black Lives Matter protests presented an opportunity for her to teach more about race.

Her class starts with defining social justice and talking about slavery, which led to institutional racism and implicit bias. Barber also weaves race and equity into every subject. Whether it’s learning about scientists or mathematicians of color, sharing social justice facts or reading about civil rights movements, every day in her class is filled with race education. She also provides resources and other useful information for her students’ families in case students have any questions.

“I am willing to be that teacher that has those hard conversations,” she said. “I would be doing a huge disservice to my students if I didn’t give them information that they could see themselves in.”

2nd grade. 8 years-old.

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.
Lenin

Give us the teacher for 4 years and we will produce Neo-Marxists for 40 years.

The ruse isn’t working.

And before you try attacking the source, I’d do a little research. I did.

A little more:

“In Bellevue, we have been working very hard in grades 5, 8 and 11 to de-center the traditional ‘white’ perspective and to center the voices of people of color,” said Patricia Shelton, a curriculum developer in the Bellevue School District.

“I was already trying to be intentional about integrating discussions about race and equity into my classroom prior to the BLM protests last year, but of course it brought a new level of awareness for many people,” Fischer said.

How many times were we told, “NOT TEACHING K-12!!!” “IT’S NOT HAPPENING!” “CONSPIRACY THEORY!” “BOOGEYMAN!” “GRIEVANCE!” “I’VE SAT IN MORE CLASSROOMS THAN EVERYONE OF YOU!”

All I had to do was wait. The Truth shall set you free.

Might as well stop denying it’s Marxian as well. It’s not working.

Good gosh. Removing Huckleberry Finn, Of Mice and Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird from the High School is one of their great strikes for social justice.

Democratic school districts have been dumbing down curriculums in every subject and punishing gifted students in the name of “equity.” This climate change utopia with all of its “innovation” is not going to be possible after we lose an entire generation of students.

how about the nimrod left stop viewing all of those works by today’s woke wit pc run amok standards

Actually I would say that the BLM ideology is closer to Fascism.

Both Marxism (= international socialism) and Fascism ( = national socialism) are forms of authoritarian socialism. The difference is that Fascism sees struggles in terms of racial and ethnic differences while Marxism sees struggles in terms of differences in class or economic status.

So is removing…

“I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou, “Catch-22” by Joseph Heller, “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien, “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison were all taken off an approved list of works that teachers in the Mat-Su Borough School District may use for instruction.

Caged Bird" was derided for “anti-white’ messaging,” “Gatsby” and “Things” are loaded with “sexual references,” “Invisible Man” has bad language and “Catch-22” includes violence, according [to the school]

do you agree with this decision?

Im against banning any books…
