I suspect that most Americans want to think the best about their children’s teachers, and my observation has been that most teachers that I know really want to help kids (though, I remember a few even when I was in school, way back when, who were only there for the paycheck and summers off).
I can’t say what teachers unions were like when I was in school, but recent information about one of the largest teachers unions in America makes me think that this union (and maybe the other ones, too), isn’t even remotely interested in what is best for your children or in your rights as parents.
Nope, it’s about their agenda.
Patricia Tolson gives us the disturbing details:
Despite growing opposition to Critical Race Theory (CRT) being implemented in public schools, the National Education Association (NEA) not only adopted a resolution to prioritize their effort to implement CRT in “K-12 and higher education,” it vowed to use all resources at their disposal–including friendly media—to go after those who are “attacking educators doing anti-racist work.” In response, Quisha King—a Florida mother who gained notoriety when she blasted the Duval County school board in strong opposition of CRT—says “bring it on.”
“I think it’s mob rule,” King told The Epoch Times. “Truly these teachers’ unions have a lot of power and a lot of money and they have the resources to do something like that. But obviously, parents are tired of what’s going on. We’re trying to make a difference and we’re trying to draw attention to this thing. It’s bullying to me. It’s a bully tactic.”
“We are coming out of the worst year on record for modern education and you would think the NEA would focus on reading and writing and math instead of trying to divide us by our skin color,” Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms For Liberty told The Epoch Times.
Now, remember, CRT is the racist nonsense that says that people who are not white are automatically oppressed, no matter how successful they are and that people who are white are automatically oppressors even if they haven’t seen success on any level at all.
CRT makes absolutely no sense and is incredibly offensive to ethnic minorities in America with it’s implication that non-whites are pathetic and helpless.
The good news is that many parents are standing up to the CRT nonsense. Tolson continues:
The NEA isn’t the only teachers’ organization feeling the heat. According to numbers recently released by Ballotpedia, increased efforts to eradicate CRT in education have led to a growing national trend of recalling school board members in the first six months of 2021.
As of June 30, at least 51 local recall efforts targeting at least 130 elected members on K-12 school boards have been initiated. That’s more than twice the annual average.
The racist indoctrination that is CRT needs to be stopped, and children of all ethnicities need to be told the truth: they can have any kind of success that they want if they are willing to work hard and have good character.
But don’t expect that kind of honesty or encouragement from CRT. It just teaches victimization and dependency on government, and children deserve better than that garbage.
