(Liberty Bell) – Have you ever wondered why America’s public school seem so uniformly far-leftist?
Why a generation of young people has been raised up with communist sympathies, gender confusion, and a belief that you can oppose fascism with more fascism (or a complete lack of understanding as to what “fascism” even is?)
Well, there’s a good reason for it.
Or rather, a chilling one.
The teachers’ unions, some of the most powerful political groups in the country, is packed full of progressive zealots.
And, rather than pat themselves on the back for all the indoctrination they’ve already achieved, they’re demanding that schools be turned into unamerican, Marxist educational camps that parents must be forced to send their children to.
Just the News reports that a coalition of teachers unions has issued an extensive list of demands calling for several dramatic transformative educational policies in the United States, including a “massive” funnel of federal funds and a “moratorium” on new charter schools and voucher programs.
From Just the News:
The Demand Safe Schools Coalition held a “Day of Resistance” on Monday this week, meant to “advance a racial justice agenda in public education, in particular by organizing for police-free schools.”
The group, which consists of at least 10 teachers unions, the Democratic Socialists of America, and the racial activist group Journey for Justice Alliance, argues that “the government must go much further to provide the resources to ensure a safe and equitable school reopening and must provide for our communities and working families through transformational Common Good demands.”
Among the numerous demands the group lists on its website are “police-free schools,” a “moratorium on new charter or voucher programs and standardized testing,” reduced class sizes, the “canceling [of] rents and mortgages,” a “moratorium on evictions/foreclosures,” and “direct cash assistance to those not able to work or who are unemployed.”
The group is also calling for a “massive infusion of federal money to support the reopening funded by taxing billionaires and Wall Street.”
On Monday, the coalition orchestrated about three dozen demonstrations in cities across the US, including Boston, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, medical and public health authorities are urging public schools to re-open, as are desperate parents eager to return to work after months of economic depression.
Last month, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that the mortality risk for schoolchildren from COVID-19 is “one in a million.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics has also argued that “all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.”
