Indoctrination Up

How depressing! As many of here are retired or looking forward to it in the not too distant future, we find the prospects of the nation being left in good and competent hands to be far less than satisfactory.

Instead of our education system's improvement by Common Core, things seem to be languishing and going the opposite direction. Everything that is except progressive liberal indoctrination.

Here's a sample:

To keep their teaching licenses, many teachers have to regularly attend conferences like these for usually taxpayer-sponsored “professional development.” Nowadays teacher licensing mandates often specifically require teachers to learn Common Core-themed things. So basically, to keep their jobs, teachers have to learn more about Common Core.

The Standards Institute helps them fulfill that job requirement. It did so this year by using Common Core as a Trojan horse to insert wildly leftist, arguably racist, indoctrination. Here’s Hess and Addison describing some of their materials:

UnboundEd’s training in reading and math instruction is ‘grounded in conversations about the roles that race, bias and prejudice play in our schools and classrooms.’ Its Standards Institute prepares educators to be ‘Equity Change-Agents.’ To become one, participants are told, they must first acknowledge that ‘we are part of a systematically racist system of education.’

“If you are under the impression that there are good white people and bad white people, you’re wrong,” UnboundEd CEO Kate Gerson told the teachers this year, according to Hess and Addison. “Gerson informed her charges that racial biases are pervasive, universal, and something ‘you cannot be cured from.'”

The article discussing yet another Obama monumental lie is here:

This is also why the left needs to be kept out of power. They institute wasteful programs that are highly ineffective for what they are advertised to do, but pay dividends long term for advancing their socialism/communism agenda.
