~ WHILE SOME AMERICANS are on guard against the police-state imposed from the top-down, the top is also slowly making things a little more bossy and tyrannical for the day-in day-out of parents and ordinary people everywhere. Hence, the story above.
It’s the endless grind: notes, phone-calls, rules & regulations, signed covenants, ever more forbidden activities at school, the political correctness, horrible sex-ed curricula– and why?
Three main reasons why, IMHO:
(1) The progressives honestly believe that people are empty containers, and so the necessary social/ political/ moral revolution will come, in part, through capturing the minds of kids. Education becomes soaking in right-think.
And (2) What do you mean “Your Kids”? The state is mother, the state is all-powerful source of goodness, and you parents (especially the educated one with incorrect opinions or operating principles) are clearly not suited or officially accredited to meddle with the minds of children. That’s the public school’s job, you busy-bodies.
Thus, (3) Reading, ‘Riting, and ‘Rithmetic as experienced into the 70s and 80s is not the main work of Western schools– it’s become part baby-sitting, part social-work, part self-esteem building, and part moral and political formation on all the important topics, such as recycling, tolerance, the environment, tolerance, anti-bullying, tolerance, self-expression, tolerance, gay rights, tolerance, and tolerance. Except for intolerance, which includes anything not on the curriculum. This is partly why much of what passes now for first-year university has become remedial reading, writing, and arithmetic, for students who did not actually or accidentally get the basics.
Chicks, You Own This
Sadly, it is progressive feminist women in the schools who are the majority of teachers and administrators. It is woman who are thus found aiding and abetting this endumbment of our school kids, and the caring-sharing-squishy of social conditioning girls to be girls, and boys to be.. broken defective girls in need of medication.
Fighting back is ever more important, as is paying attention to curriculum. Check what your kids or grandkids are learning– or not learning– in school, and making sure that your home has a love of reading, discussing, and thinking which may well be the majority of the worthwhile education such kids receive.
Leave Rochelle Aloooone!
“But she’s just observing the rules– it’s not her fault!” It is the fault of many people, including the one who imposes the petty bullying rules. Former principals and like-minded busy bodies on school boards and in educational politics and teacher’s unions have their finger prints all over such stuff.
Scumbuckety petty school bureaucraps need to be reminded (a) who they work for, and (b) that they are the king and/ or queen of zilch. If this is not nipped in the bud, then you only encourage them to lord it over others perhaps not in a position or mindset to push back.
