Grassroots organization forms to help parents fight critical race theory and politicization in classrooms
If you are the kind of Parent that is raising your children along traditional American norms with Judeo-Christian values, Critical Race Theory is lurking in schools all over the country. Your kids most likely are already seeing some of what we’ve been warning against as this Kraken has reared its evil mouth.
Fortunately, there is starting to be pushback – REAL pushback. While BE THIS MAN has a place in general, do you want Progressives to continue to carry you away like the fairy tale Pied Piper (except this is no fable and there are LOTS of Progressive Pipers instead of a single one – just ask some Parents whose children have come home one day as if they were aliens from another world – and they hate you.
Well, as the quote above notes, there’s help:
Empower. Expose. Engage.
Parents Defending Education is a national grassroots organization working to reclaim our schools from activists promoting harmful agendas. Through network and coalition building, investigative reporting, litigation, and engagement on local, state, and national policies, we are fighting indoctrination in the classroom — and for the restoration of a healthy, non-political education for our kids.
Love the tag line! Exposing is certainly needful. From the Washington Examiner (reformatted, emphasis mine):
Parents who think schools are becoming overly politicized have started their own coalition to fight back against curricula they believe are fueling racial and political divisions in their students.
This week, a group of parents formed Parents Defending Education, a national grassroots organization that gives parents resources on how to get involved at the local level and allows people to fill out incident reports with regard to classroom activities they find concerning.
The coalition made its public debut on Tuesday, but over the past month, it started filing complaints and Freedom of Information Act requests to a number of U.S. school districts over what is on their curricula and how they’re distributing financial assistance to students. Nicole Neily, president and founder of Parents Defending Education, said she believes there is a growing unease among parents over what their children are being taught in schools, and there’s been an increased awareness while students have been learning from home.
“Frankly, with the pandemic, it was kind of a perfect storm with people seeing in their living rooms what was going on in the classrooms,” Neily told the Washington Examiner. Since going public, Neily said her group has received nearly 1,000 incident reports from parents, teachers, and grandparents about what’s being taught in classrooms.
No kidding. Teachers have wanted it both ways – claiming that they can’t go into their classrooms and then demanding that parents NOT watch their kids’ Zoom meetings. Can’t say that I blame them for the latter – the jig is up and they’re getting caught with their pants down in having to explain WHY THEY’VE BECOME INDOCTRINATION CENTERS. They can go and protest with the best of Progressive chants and signs but can’t tell you why 2+2=5 is wrong.
You want to take over America? Just have these teachers in the classrooms for another couple of decades. Russia and China are just giddy over what we are doing to ourselves.
And what role is YOUR School Board in all this? Are they doing what they SHOULD be doing as our elected Representative in running the Districts? Or are they now “captured assests” in which the “Professionals” are above them holding the marionette strings?
Are your School Boards actively monitoring what is going on in the classrooms?????? Answer seems to be either “No” or they are complicit into turning our kids into little race-baiters.
Once again, what is CRT?
Critical race theory is an approach to studying the intersection of law and race, often espousing lessons that white people in society have inherited privileges and the unconscious bias, racism, and oppression implicit in white people have to be remedied by equity and equality programs. “It’s not OK for schools to treat children differently on the basis of race, on the basis of gender, to make them say things they don’t agree with,” Neily said. “The fact that parents have so little oversight or control over what their children are learning is deeply troubling and something we think needs to be remedied.”
BINGO! After all, they ALL work for us but it seems with each passing year, the teachers and staff believe that we just supply the money but THEY are the ones in charge.
CRT, Black Lives Matter, the 1619 Project – these aren’t just teaching about racism, they are TEACHING racism. Not what has happened but telling your kids how they are to think and act according to their ideology. The purpose to is completely overthrow our history and present and present a new Narrative in “fundamentally transforming” America.
And then, whose children will they really be? Not your’s, that’s for sure.
“There’s so much opinion that’s being injected into it,” Neily said. “Students are first being told only one side of it but are not able to or encouraged to disagree, to inject their own perspective into it. They’re being told what to think and how to interpret incidents instead of how to think critically, which I think does a real disservice to those students.
The Critical in Critical Race Theory? Its purpose is only to be highly Critical about American Society – and not in the good sense of the word. It’s part of the Ideological Revolution that Obama meant when he said “We are five days from fundamentally transforming the United States”.
I, for one, refuse.
