Hillary A planned, step-by-step attempt to “wash” family-taught beliefs from the minds of those who oppose government ideology. In America, it would mean replacing the old values and world view with a new way of thinking that would support a totalitarian agenda. In other words, every child must become a peace child, a willing and active servant of a new world order.
Ever since public education was introduced, the state and the family have competed to control childhood conditioning – and it is in childhood that culture is transmitted to the next generation.
In the micromanaged future, we’ll most likely see the ‘final solution’ of social control, which is for the state to monopolise child raising. This would eliminate from society the parent-child bond, and hence family-related bonds in general. No longer is there a concept of relatives, just fellow members of the hive. The family must be demonized.
Between required lessons of gay history- which Governor Brown just signed into California Law, lessons of “fluid gender” (with guest lecturers!) , along with instruction on green energy, saving whales and polar bears, anti-bullying, and lessons on multiculturalism and diversity, there are simply not enough hours in the school day for a teacher to devote to complex math problems. Gone are the days of diagramming a sentence; gone are the days of learning the basics of economics.
Learning has taken a back seat to environmentalism. And sexuality. And collective bargaining
The curriculum suggests that schools bring in “coaches” to guide the students. Where do you suppose they get the coaches? Well at teachers unions, the local AFL-CIO labor council, or labor centers at local colleges, of course. Having been taught by the “masters”, students can then regurgitate how to collectively bargain for higher wages, better health care, and the maximum number of vacation and “sick” days possible.
Anywhere from $7000 to $18000 per year is spent on every student in public school throughout the country, yet despite an increase in per-pupil funding, test scores have plummeted
. As parents are beginning to wake up and question the quality of their children’s education, the unions are rallying teachers to take to the streets and claim “victim” status, encouraging them to protest with intimidating signs reminiscent of the days of Marx and Stalin. In Wisconsin, teachers were blatantly getting “sick notes” from “doctors” on the streets while they were protesting for MORE pay, MORE benefits, MORE pension. The heartfelt stories we hear from these teachers, the ones which usually begin with “it’s all about my kids” and “I love children”, always seem to end with cries of “teachers need more money”.
Remember, a public school teacher has a 9 month job. They get summers, weekends, holidays, and school vacation days off. They have job security unmatched in the private sector, health care benefits, and a pension that they will receive long after they retire. Not only that–these teachers are not locked into teaching. If they are not happy with the profession THEY’VE chosen, they have the ability to walk away and get another job.
If teachers are sincere about their concern for children and the quality of education, they would band together and demand that the classroom once again become a place where children learn the basics. They would collectively reject the new lessons in political correctness, gay sexuality, green energy, diversity, and collective bargaining and use their voices to fight for a stronger curriculum that will benefit, not only their students, but society as a whole.
We need to quit idolizing this profession and start demanding that they stand up and fight for our children’s education. I’m tired of hearing the mantra that teachers are under-appreciated and under paid.
Most are simply cowards, fighting for their own skin instead of teaching our children.
