If we thought the Pandora company was limited to teaching Critical Race Theory, add teaching that Trump and his supporters are “White Supremacists.” Add the claim that “murderous police officers” were examples of White supremacy.
25 percent of America’s kids are now subject to Pandora. An earlier post hashed out the details of Merrit Garland’s conflict of interest with his son-in-law’s company Pandora. The company that is infiltrating our children’s schools to spy on them and subsequently data collect on us as well. They call it collecting “actionable data?” The company provides “screeners” to the schools? To do what?
For a refresher check out an earlier post:
Over 50 of the largest 100 school districts and state agencies in the country use its platform. In total, more than 1,500 school districts are among its customers. Clients include the New York City Department of Education, Clark County School District in Nevada, Dallas ISD in Texas and the Hawaii Department of Education, among others.
Since March 2020, Panorama has added 700 school districts to its customer base, nearly doubling the 800 it served just 18 months prior, according to Feuer. […] Former Yale graduate students Feuer and Xan Tanner started the company in an effort to figure out the best way for schools to collect and understand feedback from their students (read more)
“By asking students to reflect on their experiences of equity and inclusion in school, education leaders can gather actionable data to understand and improve the racial and cultural climate on campus.” ~ Panorama Education, Xan Tanner Co-founder
We are not talking chump change and how obsequious the program has become.
The additional funding back in September gives us this eyeful just how far they have come.
From Tech Crunch:
Panorama Education, which has built out a K-12 education software platform, has raised $60 million in a Series C round of funding led by General Atlantic.
CEO and co-founder Aaron Feuer did say the company now serves 13 million students in 23,000 schools across the United States, which means that 25% of American students are enrolled in a district served by Panorama today.
Attorney General Merrick Garland’s son-in-law Xan Tanner is the co-founder of Panorama Education.
Fairfax Public Schools is all in:
Parents Defending Education said the school district is directing $23.3 million toward social and emotional learning initiatives, or SEL.
Part of the program involves an SEL screener through Panorama Education, Fox News reported.
Critics believe phrases like “social and emotional learning” and “culturally responsive training” involve the introduction of controversial ideas about race and identity, the report said. New York Post
The company is doing more than pushing the racist obsessions of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. It also tells public school districts across America the vile lie that Trump and his supporters are “white supremacists”:
An education company co-founded by Attorney General Merrick Garland’s son-in-law issued a “resource” for teachers this year that claims supporters of former President Donald Trump are White supremacists.
The educational workshop released by Panorama Education, co-founded by Alexander “Xan” Tanner, the group’s president, revolves around “systemic racism” and includes an article as a resource that states the Ku Klux Klan and attendees of Trump’s rallies are both “examples of white supremacy.”
The 2021 workshop in question from the group, titled “SEL as Social Justice: Dismantling White Supremacy Within Systems and Self,” includes a portion of “resources” for teachers, one of which links to a Medium article titled “How White Supremacy Lives in Our Schools, written by Altagracia Montilla, a self-described “freedom-dreamer, facilitator, and strategist committed to dismantling oppressive systems.”
In the article, Montilla wrote, “The rise in images of overt white supremacy in the media feeds into the confusion about white supremacy. While the Ku Klux Klan and MAGAs at half-empty Trump rallies (not that these are mutually exclusive groups) are in fact examples of white supremacy, they are not the only examples.”
The article also said “murderous police officers” were examples of White supremacy and claimed White supremacy “is everywhere, pertinent and pervasive, woven into the fabric of our society and reflected in every institution and organization in the U.S. including schools.”
“One of the purposes of listing characteristics of white supremacy culture in schools is to point out how schools consciously or unconsciously use these characteristics as their standards making it difficult, if not impossible, to open the door to other cultural norms and standards,” Montilla claimed, listing “Perfectionism,” “Worship of the Written Word,” “Paternalism,” “Defensiveness,” and “Right to Comfort” as “school practices that act as antidotes to white supremacy culture in schools.”
Montilla went even further in the piece, claiming that schools only “celebrate students who adapt or conform” to ideals that are rooted in White supremacy.
“The reality is while schools may say they’re invested in diversity and equity, they really only celebrate students who adapt or conform to the cultural norms rooted in white supremacy,” the Panorama Education approved resource stated. “Naming and identifying the characteristics of white supremacy culture in schools so we shift from accepting these characteristics as norms towards recognizing them as destructive — is the first step to working toward building schools that value all students.”
The very best of the swamp today.
