Who needs math when the important work of re-racializing the country through woke critical theory is needed for our 8-year-olds?
In the old days schools would teach "The Three Rs": Readin', 'ritin', and 'rithmetic. In California, it appears they've decided to replace this tried and true method of teaching with this new method I am calling "The one R" which is: Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
Critical theorists, SJWs, and cultural Marxists in the making.
This new development was brought to the public eye when parents started to complain that their students' 3rd-grade math class was canceled and replace with a woke, "anti-racist" indoctrination program.
This is happening at Meyerholz Elementary in the Cupertino Union School District in California. Some of the things being taught in this class, in lieu of math mind you, are straight out of the Critical Race Theory handbook, including reading passages aloud from a book titled This Book is Anti-Racist.
This is ridiculous and actually racist.
"Dominant culture," "Power," Privilege," "Identity."
Writing assignments created to teach children to think in exclusively marxist power dynamics. All of this woke nonsense is being spoon-fed to 8-year-old children in California schools. According to this school district, this is more important than learning your times-tables and long division.
As of Thursday, it appears that the teacher has agreed to pause the use of this "curriculum" for the time being. It came out in a meeting with parents, however, that this teacher has been "intertwining" this radical teaching in with their normal lessons for the past several years. Parents are only now aware of this because students are attending school virtually.
The question has to be asked, what else are teachers hiding from parents?
How many other teachers are teaching this Marxist screed behind the backs of parents? This one just got caught because they went too far. Rest assured, this is happening all over and the teachers are often too smart to get caught.
Our friend Allie Stuckey has put this so eloquently, and I must, again, wholeheartedly agree with her on this one.
