When I first began discussing the dismal state of the American education establishment on this blog, several academics and educators routinely poo-pooed that there was a real problem. Some, revealing either their ignorance or complicity, still do. They used to come here and do it - until their argument was shown to be demonstrably absurd. Some of these folks were especially loud about denying the politicization at the K-12 level. If nothing else, the last few years has, for the most part, sent the deniers slinking back to their safe-spaces. Here's the latest:
Teachers at a public elementary school in Seattle plan to wear Black Lives Matter t-shirts to school on Friday, Sept. 16 to show their support for the movement.If that's ok, what about if these same teachers all decided to wear "Unborn Lives Matter" t-shirts to school in order to "show their support" for that movement? Would that be tolerated? We know the answer and we also know that the children in these schools are being indoctrinated with a particular political viewpoint.
Go ahead, keep denying it.
