CA proposed ethnic curriculum – Chant to the Aztec deity of human sacrifice

 

The state board of education will vote on this Marxist curriculum next week: if it passes, it will install the principles of critical race theory and its related ideologies into the state’s 10,000 public schools, serving 6 million children.

While we focus on D.C and senile Biden, the march to distort history and radicalize our youth continues in high speed in California.

R. Tolteka Cuauhtin, the original co-chair, worked on the early American history material. In the references, he denounces the United States as a “Eurocentric, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal, heteropatriarchal, and anthropocentric paradigm brought from Europe.”

In a related “mandala,” Cuauhtin claims that white Christians committed “theocide” against indigenous tribes, killing their gods and replacing them with Christianity. White settlers thus established a regime of “coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide.”

According to Cuauhtin, whites began “grabbing the land,” “hatching hierarchies,” and “developing for [whiteness],” which created “excess wealth” that “became the basis for the capitalist economy.” Whites continue to subject minorities to “domestication” and “zombification.”

Decentralize the public school system and give parents the $15,000 a year per child to choose their own education. Families deserve the chance to educate their kids—not subject them to this taxpayer-funded poison.

Here we go:

Revenge of the Gods

California’s proposed ethnic studies curriculum urges students to chant to the Aztec deity of human sacrifice.

 

Next week, the California Department of Education will vote on a new statewide ethnic studies curriculum that advocates for the “decolonization” of American society and elevates Aztec religious symbolism—all in the service of a left-wing political ideology.

The new program, called the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, seeks to extend the Left’s cultural dominance of California’s public university system, 50 years in the making, to the state’s entire primary and secondary education system, which consists of 10,000 public schools serving a total of 6 million students.

In theoretical terms, the new ethnic studies curriculum is based on the “pedagogy of the oppressed,” developed by Marxist theoretician Paolo Freire, who argued that students must be educated about their oppression in order to attain “critical consciousness” and, consequently, develop the capacity to overthrow their oppressors.

Following this dialectic, the model curriculum instructs teachers to help students “challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs” and critique “white supremacy, racism and other forms of power and oppression.” This approach, in turn, enables teachers to inspire their pupils to participate in “social movements that struggle for social justice” and “build new possibilities for a post-racist, post-systemic racism society.”

……..

The religious narrative is even more disturbing. Cuauhtin developed a related “mandala” claiming that white Christians committed “theocide” against indigenous tribes, killing their gods and replacing them with Christianity. White settlers thus established a regime of “coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide,” characterized by the “explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity.”

The solution, according to Cuauhtin and the ethnic studies curriculum, is to “name, speak to, resist, and transform the hegemonic Eurocentric neocolonial condition” in a posture of “transformational resistance.” The ultimate goal is to “decolonize” American society and establish a new regime of “countergenocide” and “counterhegemony,” which will displace white Christian culture and lead to the “regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity.”

…..

California parents should be concerned. Under the guise of “equity” and “empowerment,” activists within the public education system have developed this radical new curriculum in order to transform California schools into factories for left-wing political activism.

They have recast the United States as an oppressor nation that must be deconstructed and subverted through politics. The curriculum’s vision statement makes this aim explicit: it presents education not as a means of achieving competency, but as a “tool for transformation, social, economic, and political change, and liberation.”

NYC de Blasio’s panel recommends eliminating all gifted school programs

 

What to do with bright Dick and Jane in the New York school system? They have no right to an enrichment program. After all, they are more likely White. Forget that dear old mom and dad are more likely doing the heavy lifting in paying taxes to support the school system and educating the Johnnies that aren’t so bright. Just who is paying for the school lunch programs and whatever else?

No, in the Socialist perfect world we simply want mediocrity. We want no advancement for the brightest in supporting their creativity. After all they are our future scientists and engineers.  Good work New York. This should bring about a new wave of ‘White Flight” and even worse, poor Black, Hispanics and Asians bright kids will be restricted in getting the opportunity at fulfilling their potential.

No they must be sacrificed on the altar of so called desegregation.

Chalkbeat:

The advisory group tasked with finding new ways to integrate New York City schools is recommending the nation’s largest school system eliminate gifted programs and selective admissions at most city schools.

Those are some of the proposals unveiled Monday night by the School Diversity Advisory Group, made up of academics, students, parents, and advocates appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio. Earlier this year, 62 of the diversity advisory group’s 67 initial recommendations became city policy.

Their latest recommendations take aim at admissions policies that have been seen as critical for getting white, middle-class families who might otherwise leave the city or choose private schools to enroll in public schools.

Any of the proposed changes have the potential to ignite intense pushback. The group recognizes this tension and says they believe their recommendations “thread that needle in a bold and balanced way,” the report’s authors write.

The report calls for the admissions test to be dropped and for programs to be phased out by not enrolling any new students. Instead, the group advises that the city provide local districts with resources to create their own alternatives that avoid the kind of “rigid academic tracking” that can lead to internally segregated schools.

The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have more on the topic behind a paywall. More at Chalkbeat

A press conference is scheduled for 1pm today. It will be interesting to hear what our Presidential candidate de Blasio has to say on the matter.

Other than that, all is well in the New York swamp.

CNN: ‘Women Can’t Carry Guns Because They Wear Skirts, Dresses’

 

Maybe this fellow should try a few episodes of Charlie’s Angels. Apparently CNN didn’t give him the right memo.A CNN analyst insisted Saturday that arming school teachers is impractical, arguing that women who wear skirts and dresses can not carry guns on gun1their person.

“A lot of these schools—Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty, from principal to teachers,” noted CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes. “For a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day?”

Snip…”If you wear a dress, if you wear a skirt, are you going to have to wear a jacket everyday with a belt and a holster, the way a detective on duty would do?” he asked. “It’s not a real practical solution for a variety of reasons.”

 

Eyes on Britain – What happens with all the Muslim babies?

Eyes on Britain

By Mustang

A recent article in The Daily Mail warned British citizens that because of the ever-expanding number of births among Middle Eastern families, there won’t be enough room in public schools by the year 2022/2023.

According to the article by Eleanor Harding, almost half of the educational councils in England will not have enough secondary school places in five years’ time following a baby-boom fueled by migration.  Council leaders warn that more than 125,000 children face missing out on a secondary school seat by the 2022 school year unless “urgent action is taken.”  By urgent action, I assume that Eleanor is talking about massive increases in local taxes.

In England, the areas of Manchester, Leicester, and Islington in North London will be the worst hit by this crisis (areas with high populations of Moslems), which as it turns out already have more pupils than places for the coming year.  But the threat extends well beyond the high-immigrant areas of London.  The figures of the Local Government Association (LGA), using data supplied by the Department of Education, offer projections based on higher birth-rates among immigrant populations.  Even now, the gerbil-like procreation within Moslem populations has caused a strain on elementary schools.  Currently, twelve school councils will run out of places for students with an estimated number extending to 23 councils in the next school year.  Bottom line … a short-fall of 49% within 123 councils.  Eleanor tells us that “600,000 additional primary places will be required by the 2022/2023 school year.”

We could round this figure up to one-million just to simplify the argument.

I have long held the belief that you don’t change a tiger’s stripes simply by moving him from his natural habitat to a zoo in the midwestern United States.  Moslems do not give up their Islamic mandate of procreation simply because they’ve migrated to a western country.  Of course, I suppose we could presume that Moslems living in America (or anywhere else in the west) embrace monogamy, or that they are all honest folk who pay their fair share of state and local taxes (which support such things as local schools), but I suspect the opposite.  I do wonder how many Moslem women with children (in some societies, referred to as whores)  sired by polygynous men, draw public assistance as part of their “invasion of the infidel” program.  On the other hand, if there is anyone out there who thinks that migrated Moslems (or their descendants) now (suddenly) embrace monogamy, or western civics —I have a bridge for sale at a very good price.

Since the chickens seem to be coming home to roost, maybe Americans should take note of this situation.

Marine Dad complained about daughter being taught Muslim religion, banned from her graduation

What is with this love affair with the Muslim religion that the schools are now promulgating? We are a Christian Nation believe it or not, but not a word may be mentioned about Jesus. This is an important must read story. Not to be lost in the election hoopla.

After Suing Maryland Public School For Teaching Their Daughter HOW TO CONVERT TO ISLAM, USMC Veteran & Father Banned from Daughter’s Graduation

Maryland parents Melissa and John Wood sued the Charles County Public Schools System, the Board of Education of Charles County, and the principal and vice principal of La Plata High School for violating their daughter’s civil rights under U.S. Code 42 (1983). Not only is the school instructing students to learn and perform Islamic rituals, it prohibits students from taking home the textbook in which Islamic ideology is taught. And after Mr. Wood, an 8-year U.S. Marine Corps veteran complained, the school issued a “no trespass” order– from the public school where his daughter attends. And banned him from attending his daughter’s graduation.

Wood claims he fought to defend the freedom of public school education– and yet he and his family have been retaliated against– by the very school his actions and taxpayer dollars support.

John Wood was deployed in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. After serving in the Marine Corps, he became a firefighter and responded to the Pentagon attack on September 11, 2001.

The Woods claim in the lawsuit that the school system and its administrators have repeatedly violated his daughter’s First Amendment rights by promoting “Islam over other faiths, such as Christianity or Judaism.”

And the school is hiding it from the parents.

Their daughter’s 11th grade World History class uses two different textbooks-– one they can take home (excludes Islamic texts) and one they can’t take home (includes Islamic texts).

Their daughter, identified as C.W., along with other students, was assigned homeworkwhich:

“required the students… to profess statements on the teachings and beliefs of Islam in written worksheets as graded homework assignments.”

Obama forces male and female school kids to shower together

I am still trying to think this one through. Just what is the purpose behind making those with a different anatomy, that being male and female, forced into showering and otherwise dressing in the same locker room? The bathroom was a stretch for me, but the government is getting into this one? Are they really trying to stick one in our eye or what? Tell me what you think. The good news otherwise is all of this absurdity is getting to the electorate. Early returns from yesterday’s elections have given the GOP more wins, but then again, we don’t seem to be able to make the most of it. Here we go:

A school district near Chicago, Palatine 211, provides numerous accommodations for transgender students. The district calls the students by requested names, honors selected gender (including allowing them to play on the sports teams of the gender they identify as belonging to), and permits them to use single-sex bathrooms, since stalls ensure privacy.

But the federal government has decided that the district is still guilty of violating Title IX, the law prohibiting sex-based discrimination, over certain locker room restrictions.

According to the Associated Press, “District 211 has 30 days to change the policy, or risk losing millions in federal funding.”

Terrific.

As Cates, the superintendent, puts it bluntly in his statement: “The students in our schools are teenagers, not adults, and one’s gender is not the same as one’s anatomy. Boys and girls are in separate locker rooms—where there are open changing areas and open shower facilities—for a reason.”

Holder wants to know ‘Race, Sex, Disability, Age and English-Learner Status’ of problem students

So now the term is “New Guidance” as Eric Holder, and Arne Duncan and their drones continue to worm their way into our educational system. Of course, even the threat of a lawsuit against a school district causes most to cave to the Federal government. Unless they have deep pockets and can spend millions of dollars defending themselves. That why we have “winter breaks.”  Christmas? What Christmas.

“As part of this review, schools (and the federal government no doubt) may choose to examine how discipline referrals and sanctions imposed at the school compare to those at other schools, or randomly review a percentage of the disciplinary actions taken at each school on an ongoing basis to ensure that actions taken were non-discriminatory and consistent with the school’s discipline practices.” -previously reported.

The Obama administration, concerned that “zero tolerance” policies are sending too many students to court instead of the principal’s office, on Wednesday urged schools to back off — particularly in the case of minority students and other federally protected groups. “Racial discrimination in school discipline is a real problem today,” said Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who joined Attorney General Eric Holder in speaking about the new guidance. Holder said “students of color and those with disabilities” often receive “different and more severe punishment than their peers.” –

While the nation’s schools are under local control, they must follow federal civil rights and disability laws. And the new guidance for the nation’s schools could subject more of those schools to federal discrimination lawsuits. In fact, the crackdown already is happening. Full story at CNS

Bad people send their children to private schools

Now the call goes out to sacrifice one’s children on the altar of Progressivism. What Mother Nature has done for us, encoding our DNA to sacrifice for the sake of our progeny, the Progressives apparently have had that particular piece of DNA lose its way into the strand. Perhaps this explains their often incomprehensible view of the world. So here we go, am I the only one who sees some similarity to Hitler’s view of the German youth?

While most would probably argue that prioritizing your child’s future over a collectivist political agenda makes you a better parent, Slate‘s Allison Benedikt argues today that moving your kids from a failing public school to a successful private schools makes you something of a horrible person

Benedikt writes :

You are a bad person if you send your children to private school. Not bad like murderer bad—but bad like ruining-one-of-our-nation’s-most-essential-institutions-in-order-to-get-what’s-best-for-your-kid bad. So, pretty bad.

I am not an education policy wonk: I’m just judgmental. But it seems to me that if every single parent sent every single child to public school, public schools would improve. This would not happen immediately. It could take generations. Your children and grandchildren might get mediocre educations in the meantime, but it will be worth it, for the eventual common good. …

I believe in public education, but my district school really isn’t good! you might say. I understand. You want the best for your child, but your child doesn’t need it. If you can afford private school (even if affording means scrimping and saving, or taking out loans), chances are that your spawn will be perfectly fine at a crappy public school. She will have support at home (that’s you!) and all the advantages that go along with being a person whose family can pay for and cares about superior education—the exact kind of family that can help your crappy public school become less crappy. She may not learn as much or be as challenged, but take a deep breath and live with that

Benedikt seems to agree with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry: Children don’t belong to families, they “belong to their communities.”   The progressive ideology demands that you bear more responsibility for the collective education of the community than for the educational enrichment of your own child.

Muslim Congressman Andre Carson, “America Schools Should Be Modeled after Madrassa’s

America needs Muslims and Madrassas the man says. This is what is infiltrating our government. Actually, this is what we have elected. Now they are coming out of the closet.

Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), the Muslim congressman who once said that the Tea Party would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree,” made another controversial statement during a May 26 speech.

Speaking about the American education system, Carson told the audience that American schools should be modeled after Madrassas and touted the benefits of schools that use the Koran as their “foundation.”

Next Generation, dumb as dumb can be?

These are unbelievable statistics regarding the state of our educational system in America. If we have any doubt as to what the next generation has in store for them, these numbers tell the tale. We often get a glimpse of the ignorance when Fox News does a quick, “man on the street” pop question. The recipient of the question simply smiles and gives some off the wall answer to questions that simply all of us should know. Here we go:

For example, according to a survey conducted by the National Geographic Society, only 37 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 can find Iraq on a map of the world.  According to that same survey, 50 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 can’t even find the state of New York on a map.  If our students cannot even find Iraq and New York on a map, what hope is there that they will be able to think critically about the important world events of our day?

The following are some of the absolutely amazing results of a study conducted a few years ago by Common Core….

*Only 43 percent of all U.S. high school students knew that the Civil War was fought some time between 1850 and 1900.

*More than a quarter of all U.S. high school students thought that Christopher Columbus made his famous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean after the year 1750.

*Approximately a third of all U.S. high school students did not know that the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  (This is a topic that was touched on yesterday).

*Only 60 percent of all U.S. students knew that World War I was fought some time between 1900 and 1950.

Even more shocking were the results of a survey of Oklahoma high school students conducted back in 2009.  The following is a list of the questions that were asked and the percentage of students that answered correctly….

What is the supreme law of the land? 28 percent

What do we call the first ten amendments to the Constitution? 26 percent

What are the two parts of the U.S. Congress? 27 percent

How many justices are there on the Supreme Court? 10 percent

Who wrote the Declaration of Independence? 14 percent

What ocean is on the east coast of the United States? 61 percent

What are the two major political parties in the United States? 43 percent

We elect a U.S. senator for how many years? 11 percent

Who was the first President of the United States? 23 percent

Who is in charge of the executive branch? 29 percent
