US schools are changing their curriculum in response to Black Lives Matter as survey finds 81% of teachers support the movement

By FRANCES MULRANEY FOR DAILYMAIL.COM and REUTERS : 14:43 BST, 24 August 2020

 

Schools around the United States are modifying their curriculum in response to the Black Lives Matter movement as students return following a summer of protest. 

A June survey by the EdWeek Research Center, which is affiliated with the prominent trade publication Education Week, found that 81 percent of US teachers support Black Lives Matter.  

We can't control what happens with the police, but we can control what happens in our school systems,' said Michael McFarland, head of the National Alliance of Black School Educators and a superintendent of the Crowley Independent School District in Texas. 

After a summer of teacher workshops focused on updating curricula, millions of students will return to U.S. classrooms in coming weeks - virtually or in person - that focus more on black history and experiences, according to interviews with teachers, officials, publishers and others.

Privatization or homeschooling

Of course a survey finds 81% support. Teachers have a lot of socialists in their mix. And for those who are not in agreement? Those who don’t support it will be found and persecuted.

I find this is true. I work in public schools in a big city. Yeah there are morons and subversives who hate America and are part of this movement of ignorance and hatred of anything American but I think some of these people are afraid to stand up and say anything if it is different then the collective. I'll give you an example this week. We had a zoom meeting with 300 school nurses from a big city. One of the topics was, and the name escapes me, but it involves remote doctor visits. You could be in a school clinic on-line with a nurse or doctor being assessed for some medical issue. This is a response to Covid. Now here is the money line: They talked about how wonderful it is and how useful for children without physicals. They could have physicals done at school and wouldn't have to rely on a parent to return one.

Do you know how infuriating this stuff is to me? First, there is no time for this sort of thing during the school day. Most nurses were wetting themselves over this because we need to do everything we can.......for the kids. It is always, for the kids. Do you know how much social harm has been done by people claiming, it's for the kids? I said yeah, I am all for taking away from parents any responsibility for their children. Let me tell you I got a lot of heat but I don't care. I am a straight guy working in a women's world and I have no stomach for their pretended support and liberal enabling.

 I have a wife and four kids. My first house after marriage was a row home, I guess most people would say town house. I worked 80-90hrs a week for two years and raised $140,000. on the side doing agency nursing. I would leave work after Friday and work five shifts on the weekend before returning to my regular job. I was already a full time nurse elsewhere. I moved my family to a beautiful suburb in a beautiful home. My kids never missed a doctor's or dentist appointment. They never missed a therapy appointment. I had a sick daughter with bad ulcerative colitis. I never missed a game, step up day, graduation, or any other major event. I am not saying this to pat myself on the back. I am sure many of you are in a similar place. I say it because I will be damned if I am going to accept that some loser parent in the ghetto or wherever, who doesn't work and who's kids don't do anything or belong to anything can't make a free clinic visit or go to a dentist. Or get a immunization record. I am the anti-enabler. My motto is," I am not the solution to your problem". To an enabler I am mean. But I am just the opposite--well maybe I can be a little mean-lol. Teaching parents to accept responsibility is something we should all be encouraging.

Well, just heard from a friend that she's resigned her position as a school teacher and pulled her son from school to homeschool him until the COVID business is finished.

I have a feeling that parents who do look at homeschooling as an alternative will find that their children will learn more, test better and decide not to change things once the COVID situation is resolved to whatever degree it is.

They tell us that racism is taught. The education system is their selfulflilling hypothesis.

those that I know who homeschool outperform their public school peers in all categories.  Nicer kids, too
