Not Surprising

University of Florida had some woke bullshit BLM stuff on their medical school webpages. That doesn’t surprise me in the least. I didn’t go to UF, but this is widespread throughout US colleges. I had to listen to and report on Podcasts talking about Health Equity and how all white people have privilege and are racist.

One of those podcasts talked about how black women have worse outcomes in healthcare than do white women, and this is proof of racial bias. As evidence, the podcast offered Serina Williams’ issues during childbirth to show that black women can’t get quality care, even when rich and famous.

Except that isn’t what happened. Ms. Williams has a preexisting condition requiring that she take anticoagulants to prevent blood clots. When she was to give birth by Caesarian section, the hospital told her to stop taking the anticoagulants, as they increase the chances of severe bleeding during surgery. After the surgery, she developed blood clots because she wasn’t on her medication. That happens and had nothing to do with her race.

That doesn’t matter to the woke professors that have infected our colleges. What do you do as a student? Well, you can do what I did when I was in grad school to be a PA, which was be loud and defend your opinions, but all that does is make an enemy of the professor who will then run you out of school and make certain you won’t ever be accepted to another grad school. Or, you can do what I did when I went to nursing school: keep your mouth shut, parrot the woke party line, and try to not be noticed.

Say What?

The vice principal of a Cleveland high school let three ski mask wearing, armed gunmen into the locked school with students inside, because he saw that police were chasing them and was afraid the police would shoot them.

A school security officer called 911 while watching teens with masks and guns. They had pulled up in three stolen cars and walked up to the school. The school went into lockdown. The police pursued the three, and one of them was able to escape.

The vice principal made a statement to police: “I confirmed the interior doors were locked and instructed the four suspects to come to the vestibule because it was unsafe to be outside because I saw police officers.”

The school district defended them by saying that the principal made sure that the doors to classrooms were locked, so the gunmen were not able to threaten students. Here is the official statement from the school district:

As one of the witness statements indicates, the males entered a controlled, secured area that is specifically designed to prevent access to the rest of the building. Cleveland police had already arrived on the scene and were able to make arrests. The staff member made a split-second decision that the individual thought was the best way to keep students and staff safe.

At the very least, the two vice principals are guilty of aiding a fugitive, or perhaps accessory after the fact. After all, he made an official statement that his purpose was in helping three masked gunmen avoid the police.

The police union had the best quote:

administrators at Garrett Morgan HS allowed MASKED GUNMEN to enter the school in order to protect the gunmen from wait for it police officers outside. They risked the lives of CHILDREN to show how woke they are. Can’t make it up.

Parents need to be down there at the next school board meeting and demanding some answers.

Making Math Racist

A few days ago, I posted about Florida refusing to buy certain math textbooks because they contained CRT and SEL propaganda, and the state is trying to keep political topics out of elementary school. No groomers allowed, to put it bluntly.

Now the state has finally given some examples and reasons for why they rejected some textbooks. Take a look:

It’s subtle, but they are grooming the kids in their care, so that they grow up to be good little communists.

Grooming kids to become little communists. That is why these books were rejected. I took the Implicit Association Test, and it is garbage. It asks questions like “Are those that you are sexually attracted to mostly of a similar skin tone?” and “Do you think that certain skin tones have an advantage over others in making money?”

Garbage. This isn’t math, and it isn’t science. It’s propaganda.

Your Parental Responsibility

I support people who want to homeschool. I don’t agree that parents can’t get others to instruct their children. As parents, we should all want our children to be at least as successful as we were, perhaps even more so. That frequently means letting or hiring others to teach our children things that we cannot.
There are simply some subjects that I don’t feel qualified enough to teach others. So I subcontract it out.
The problem with today’s education is that parents have abdicated much of their parental duties to teachers. School has become more of a babysitting service than it has a place of learning. Parents need to be involved in their children’s education. They aren’t. Even most of the ones who think that they are involved aren’t involved in their education, they only care about their child’s GRADES, and that is not the same thing.

  • What are your kids learning in school this week?
  • Do you know the names of their teachers?
  • Is your child behaving? Who are his friends? Does he hang out with one of “those kids?” Is your child one of “those kids?”
  • Have you seen his text books? If you are in Florida, schools involve parents in the selection of textbooks. Did you know that? If you did, have you participated in that process?
  • Did you know that most teachers maintain a web page that lets you know what your child is studying? Do you check it frequently?
  • Most schools have online gradebooks. What grade did your child receive on his last 5 assignments in each of his classes? If you don’t know, do you at least know where to find out?

Or do you just wait for report cards to come out, and make sure his grades look good?

Look, after the seven years I spent as a teacher, I can tell you that there are many problems with our kids’ education. Yes, there are poor teachers. Yes, there are poor schools, and poor school boards. The way that we got there was through parents not being truly involved in the lives and education of their children. This didn’t happen overnight.

I had parents who were surprised at the end of the year to learn that their child was failing my class. Every week, I would call the parents of students who were failing my class, so we could work together to salvage their grades. I couldn’t get ahold of most of them. Some even deliberately gave the school the incorrect phone number so they wouldn’t be bothered by “all of those phone calls from the school.”

You are the single best advocate for your children. No one cares more for them than you do. So act like it. If your school involves parents in the selection of textbooks, get involved. If your teacher has a website explaining what is going on in the classroom this week, read it. Learn the names of your kids’ teachers. Go to open house. If you can’t be bothered to spend two hours a week being involved with your child’s education while he is in school, you sure aren’t going to be any better at homeschooling.

College vs. High School

By now, we have all heard about the disgusting and ridiculous situation with the porn that passes for learning materials in schools. My opinion on this is clear: this isn’t for children.

With that being said, there has been a growing trend in schools for more than a decade: dual enrollment or college level coursework being taught in high school. When you begin the course, the parents are told that the student is taking a college course that will result in the student receiving both high school and college credit.

Since the college (or other accredited entity that isn’t the high school) sponsors the course, it is the one that sets the standards. The standards for the course are the same ones as students taking the course on the college campus must follow. The high school has no say whatsoever in the curriculum or course content of dual enrollment classes. In fact, a dual enrollment teacher is not even permitted to discuss grades or student performance with parents, unless the student specifically gives permission in writing. Parents and students are made aware of this.

By signing up for this course, students are receiving an adult level education. For two of the seven years that I was a teacher, I was teaching a college level physics course. That is, the students could take an exam at the end of the year, and if they passed, they would get college credit for the course. Parents and students alike complained that my course was too difficult. They still expected that my course would be more of the same inane, easy courses taught at public schools, and simply having your name on the roster would be enough to pass the course. Hey, it even looks good on a college application!

That is why I support the teacher in this case. It was a college level course that was covering college (adult) level material. If you, as a parent, don’t feel that your child is sufficiently advanced and adult enough to handle adult level material (an R rated movie), then you shouldn’t sign them up for a college class.

Not for Children

They are grooming and propagandizing your kids. This is a little bit of a read, but stay with me, it’s important.

There is a book that was written for children, titled “Lawn Boy.” It was written by Jonathan Evison. This book is definitely NOT for children, but you wouldn’t know it by reading the description, which reads:

For Mike Muñoz, a young Chicano living in Washington State, life has been a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work—and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew—he knows that he’s got to be the one to shake things up if he’s ever going to change his life. But how?

In this funny, angry, touching, and ultimately deeply inspiring novel, bestselling author Jonathan Evison takes the reader into the heart and mind of a young man on a journey to discover himself, a search to find the secret to achieving the American dream of happiness and prosperity. That’s the birthright for all Americans, isn’t it? If so, then what is Mike Muñoz’s problem? Though he tries time and again to get his foot on the first rung of that ladder to success, he can’t seem to get a break. But then things start to change for Mike, and after a raucous, jarring, and challenging trip, he finds he can finally see the future and his place in it. And it’s looking really good.

Lawn Boy is an important, entertaining, and completely winning novel about social class distinctions, about overcoming cultural discrimination, and about standing up for oneself.

Sounds innocent, right? This is NOT an entirely accurate description of this book. The book is ACTUALLY about how the main character, Mike Munoz, a 22 year old half Mexican boy who mows lawns for a living. By the end of the book, he discovers how Capitalism is racist and homophobic, and this is why success and happiness are eluding him.

There are descriptive homosexual sex scenes in the book, “F” bombs are sprinkled throughout, and the entire American way of life is painted as evil. This book contains graphic sex scenes between children as young as nine years old, which falls under the umbrella of kiddie porn. Here is a quote from page 19:

Not that it really matters, in fourth grade at a church youth group meeting out in the bushes, I touched Doug Goebbels dick, and he touched mine. In fact, there was even some mouths involved.

Then on page 91, there is this passage:

What if I told you I touched another guy’s dick? What if I told you I sucked it? I was ten years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goebbels’ dick in my mouth. I was in fourth grade, it was no big deal. He sucked mine too. And you know what, it wasn’t terrible.

So why am I writing this post? Because this book is in the library of many schools. It is on the required reading list for some classes in middle and high schools in Texas, Florida, and Virginia (where parents aren’t allowed to have a say in what their kids are learning). If you want to read some scary stuff, read the comments to the Texas article, where adults try to justify this book by citing studies about elementary school aged children engaging in sex.

I have no problem with gay adults. I personally don’t care what an adult does with their genitals. However, kids need to be kept out of it.

I have said this before: There are activists in schools who are trying to fill your children’s heads with propaganda. They are grooming your kids to be sexual and economic slaves. I spent eight years as a public school teacher, I know. There are many good teachers who care about this country and the kids in their care. There are also hard left communist hacks, pedophiles, and slackers who are just there for a paycheck. Those teachers are the ones who are spotting kids that are malleable, and creating little communist fuck toys for themselves. Listen to this parent’s objections at a Virginia school board meeting:

As she reads aloud from the book, the school board shuts her down because “there are kids in the audience.” Well, that is kind of the point. If this book isn’t for children, then it shouldn’t be in the school library. She refuses to step down, so they shut off her microphone. I guess this makes her a Domestic Terrorist.

At this point, I cannot stress enough: Get your kids out of public school. Even in private school, pay close attention to what they are learning and studying. If you don’t, you might wake up one day to discover that there is a purple haired Marxist with a penchant for buggering little boys living in your house who just turned you in to the FBI for not being “woke” enough.
