Every year, teachers begin their school year a week or two before students. This time is used to cover new policies, goals, and other changes to education from the previous school year.
Last year, we were told that black students were being suspended at twice the rate of other demographics. They told us that this is because we as teachers are inherently racist.
This year, I am guess they are going to double down. Here is an announcement from one Florida school board that all teachers will be required to attend a racial sensitivity class where they will learn, “If a Black kid comes to class and stands up, and is animated waving his arms while discussing an uncomfortable subject, that does not mean he is a threat to the class. He just wants his voice heard.”
Of course, I always thought that a student standing up in the middle of class and talking out of turn to be a disruption, but I guess that is because I am a racist.
Four years ago, they demanded that we teach students about the “gay and lesbian lifestyle” and even gave us a pamphlet that they wanted us to follow.
I am guessing that this is going to be a statewide, if not nationwide, thing. This is going to continue to be used to get rid of people who are not reliable Communists.
