Last week I talked about concerns about Islamic indoctrination in the public schools. Apparently the problem is much worse, at least according to a recent article by Nancy Flory on The Latest in the Radical Indoctrination of Public Schools. She is the associate editor of “The Stream” which is where her article appears.
Students in a Florida middle school brought home a disturbing survey. The teacher asked her students to answer questions about different situations. These sixth graders were asked what they would do if asked to go to a gay bar. How would they react if someone of the same sex asked them to dance? How would they feel if they saw black men approaching them in a black neighborhood? The questions came from a book titled Exploring White Privilege.
Parents and administrators realized something wasn’t right. Even the kids knew something was wrong. One student told a local TV station that she felt the survey by the teacher was “very inappropriate.”
Lest you think this is an isolated event, Nancy Flory provides other examples. A lawsuit in Maryland arose because of a class project that instructed the students to write out the Islamic creed, the Shahada, and even recite the Five Pillars of Islam. If that was not enough, the students were also “subjected to disparaging teachings about Christianity.”
A first-grade book titled Jacob’s New Dress was in classrooms in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina. After some outrage from state legislators, the school pulled the book. But then replaced it with Red: A Crayon’s Story. It is a story about a red crayon that self-identifies as a blue crayon. Apparently educators believe we need to teach first-graders about transgender issues.
Her article is a reminder that we need to be ever vigilant to the radical indoctrination that is taking place in the schools today.
