Ten days ago we reported on a Deerfield NH, School study guide that referred to the Founding Fathers as Fat, Old White, Rich men. Today we’ve got a report on how an 11-year-old got docked 15-points on their homework for refusing to bash President Trump.
A Staten Island, New York, educator teacher placed an anti-President Trump question onto a middle school homework assignment — and then defended it as “freedom of speech,” reported The New York Post.
Wait for it.
“The media is nonstop on very similar references. This is considered freedom of speech and I feel I have the same right as they do.”
A state employee (making over $100K per year) thinks spending your money to promote their political agenda to a captive “audience” is protected by the first amendment because private media corporations do it.
Proof that watching liberal news media makes you stupid and no amount of money can fix that.
That’s Not How the First Amendment Works
It’s actually the exact opposite. An employee of the state is using their “government office” toindoctrinate the captive children of taxpayers is not protected expression. It’s a violation of the Constitution.
Students are stuck in that classroom and they’re required to do what the teacher says in these cases — and it can affect their future if they do not comply. This is a prime example of forced political indoctrination in public education.
That young lady is trapped with this “re-educator” for the duration of a school year. She didn’t ask to be there in that environment. And this story will only complicate those circumstances. But I bet the father (Vincent Ungro) is having some serious thoughts about other education options for all of his four children. All parents should. And not just based on what they see.
Re-educators have been moving toward no homework to keep parents from seeing what their kids are learning.
You have to get the parents out of the loop if you want to indoctrinate their children successfully. Treat them like mushrooms.
Don’t be a mushroom.
