A Peel district School Board email was forwarded to my attention – The Equity Poobahs have spoken! To Kill A Mocking Bird is RACIST! No doubt that horrid dead white male Shakespeare is next on the hit-list.
I’m pretty sure Harper Lee would have told them to Go F$ck themselves.
It is dispiriting to note that those to whom we have entrusted the education of our children in the primary and public schools are woefully under-educated practitioners of the discipline. In an article titled “Educational Rot,” Walter Williams laments “the low academic quality of so many teachers.” Williams is referring to the abomination of teacher training colleges, which recruit the dregs of the graduate schools, catering to candidates “who have the lowest academic test scores.” The same applies to graduates of the gender studies programs in the universities, who, unfit for productive employment, often end up in the K-12 classroom. The damage such instructors do to the public school system and to our children is incalculable.
As fierce national debate over controversial social justice issues spills into America’s public schools, many parents are responding by pulling their children out.
This is playing out in Texas especially, because even though independent-minded Texans typically don’t have much time for government meddling, many nevertheless adhere to that higher form of government – religion.
Hence many Texas parents are increasingly frustrated at what they perceive as religion being phased out of Texas public schools.
In the world according to the new social studies curriculum there is no such thing as Albertans or even Canadians.
In the many thousands of words of the new curriculum prototype document for K-4 social studies, which spells out in detail how and what things are going to be taught in Alberta schools, there’s not one explicit reference to Albertans or Canadians, let alone any notion that there’s value in teaching Alberta history or Canadian history.
That’s evidently not a priority. Nor is introducing students to the broad sweep of human history.
Amy Sims was not informed of the incident until her son was already in custody, FOX 26 reports. The mother states that because of her son’s condition, he does not understand that “make believe” gunplay on school grounds has become a sensitive matter.
But actual threats, like Parkland, are ignored and the police refuse to do their jobs.
Following the school shooting in Parkland, FL Republicans proposed the idea of putting more armed resource officers in schools as well as arming and training teachers as a way to keep students safe. Democrats countered with the narratives that “more guns” is schools only makes students less safe and that good guys with guns can’t possibly stop bad guys with guns. These things are completely false, but some people actually believe the crap that liberals try to push. With that in mind, a school in Pennsylvania has decided the best way to deal with a school shooter is to arm students with rocks. I am not making this up.
Hey, anyone want to play ‘Rock, Scissors, Firearm’?
The meeting, which was described as a non-partisan briefing for students, parents, and staff members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are attending the #MarchForOurLives, was quickly exposed as being hijacked by Democratic Party top brass and fraught with extreme anti-conservative bias, misappropriation of school resources, and heavy-handed coaching for students when dealing with the media.
