John Hinderaker, of powerlineblog.com, has written a piece that should horrify anyone who cares at all about education being something other than political indoctrination. In it, he details the experiences of students who dared to depart from the hard-left party line being espoused there in the name of supposedly neutral public education.
Here are just two of them:
The day after the election I was texting my mom to pick me up from school and she almost had to!! Every teacher was crying in class, one even told the whole class “Trump winning is worse than 9/11 and the Columbine shooting.” The amount of liberal propaganda that was pushed every single day in class this year was worse than it’s ever been–and you’re bullied by the teachers and every student if you dare speak against it.
Yeah its horrible, the teachers can absolutely do whatever they want. The administration will do nothing about it!! The day of the election every single student was in the commons chanting “F*** TRUMP” and the teachers never did anything. A LOT of people are starting to complain and my mom has some friends who are leaving the school district.
In talking with [my daughters], it came out that yesterday in my 10th grader’s AP World class, [the teacher] called out any Trump supporters and asked them to assure the class that they weren’t racist. Both my husband and I were aghast and we felt strongly that we should say something to you. … Yesterday’s incident in her class really surprised us as it is so completely inappropriate and unprofessional. If you talk with [the teacher] about this, please don’t mention my daughter. She doesn’t want to be identified for fear of retribution.
There is more. A lot more. Read Mr. Hinderaker’s entire piece and see for yourself.
And, in doing so, never forget that what you just read, and far worse, is taking place in colleges and universities around the country.
And, as per usual, there is virtually nothing about it in mainstream media.
Are they complicit because they all believe that students, whether in high school or college, should be indoctrinated this way? Or are they just scared out of their minds to speak up?
Either way, this is the result. This is public education in a major city today.
