A third-grade teacher at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School began the lesson on “social identities” during a math class.
But of course. You see, for some primary-school teachers, conveying the basics of arithmetic and fractions isn’t sufficiently sexy or particularly statusful. Marxoid pronouncements on “power and privilege,” however, and sermons on how straight white men are oppressing everyone else, are much more flattering to the ego of a leftist educator. And after all, those pretentious resentments, the ones you hope to exploit, won’t cultivate themselves. Oh, and apparently, transgenderism and “nonbinary sexuality” are suitable classroom topics for the modern eight-year-old.
What, you didn’t know?
Update, via the comments, where Karen adds,
Today’s word is ‘fraud’.
Given the apparent indifference to parental approval – one might call it subterfuge - you do have to wonder exactly how much class time has been wasted on ‘projects’ of this kind. Or would have been, had parents not discovered what their children were actually being taught instead of mathematics. And it is, I think, interesting just how often these things occur without the knowledge or consent of the parents whose children are being indoctrinated and psychologically abused, as if such details didn’t matter. As if the children weren’t theirs.
Note too how readily parental umbrage is framed as “divisive.” As if the problem were the parents, not the ideologically possessed educators.
