I'm not kidding. The education establishment is using PB & J sandwiches as a vehicle to promote socialism and "social justice." In their spare time, they chase down neo-Confederates and David Barton. These people are the most incompetent boobs in America.
. . . last year a teacher in the district presented a lesson that included a reference to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Gutierrez says that by using sandwiches as an illustration, the teacher was engaged in a very subtle form of racism.
And . . .
In addition to teaching that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist, PEG trains educators to view “rugged individualism,” “adherence to rigid time schedules,” and the belief that “hard work is the key to success” as traits of the dominant white culture. PEG teaches that minority cultures value “color group collectivism,” “interdependence,” group success, shared property, learning through social relationships, and making life choices based on “what will be best for the family or group.”
With these leftists, it's always about group identity and victimization, not at about the value of the individual and reaching one's maximum potential - which is why their programs are demonstrably collossal failures:
So how’s this new approach working for Gutierrez’s school? The Tribune reports that “Oregon’s Department of Education just last month identified Harvey Scott School (where Gutierrez is principal) as a ‘focus school,’ which means it’s among the state’s lowest performing 15 percent.”
The inmates are running the asylum folks. And don't forget, this is the same mindset which is prevalent in our colleges and universities. Looney tune time. And you're still not convinced these people are divorced from reality? Be sure and read their latest interpretation of the social issues surrounding the War Between the States - I'm sure it will be just as entertaining.
