Left-wing indoctrinators have infested all levels of academia across the country, from Maine to Florida and California to Texas, not just the recently exposed Ivy League institutions of Harvard, Penn State and MIT.
Local school boards have been contaminated by “gender-affirming” radicals who attempt to isolate parents from their children while universities have been taken over by faculty and administrators preaching political correctness instead of teaching. As leftist teachers are coaching students to hate themselves, their country, and sexualizing youngsters, the FBI even joined in labeling alarmed and angry parents “domestic terrorists.” The school’s progressive faculties have made it abundantly clear that they have no interest in engaging or exploring ideas that differ from their own.
It’s not just the classrooms that are being contaminated. Antisemitic mobs currently roam U.S. college campuses freely, openly threatening, intimidating, harassing, and viciously assaulting Jewish students. These deliberate acts of actual violence and threats are not being addressed. Instead, the phony educators warn against “microaggressions” or “inadvertent slights” or thoughts that might distress other students.
The corrosion starts as early as kindergarten and continues through to the highest levels of the educational system.
The Center Square, reported this month how a failing California school’s test scores continued dropping after spending $250,000 on a program called “Woke Kindergarten,” which deployed anti-police, anti-capitalism, and anti-Israel messages to advance “abolitionist early education and pro-black and queer and trans liberation.”
The Woke Kindergarten teacher training and curriculum program, first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, was available to all of Glassbook Elementary’s 474 students, who most recently fell to new lows of grade-level math and English proficiency at 4% and 12% respectively.
Woke Kindergarten founder Akiea “Ki” Gross recently said on TikTok: “I believe Israel has no right to exist. I believe the United States has no right to exist. I believe every settler colony who has committed genocide against native peoples has no right to exist.”
Once these brainwashed kindergarten kids make it to high school the barrage of academic garbage continues. A Connecticut high school in Ridgefield, CT along with elected state officials publicly demonstrated to its students and their tax-paying parents why they should immediately scramble to abandon public education and embrace private and charter schools.
Without explanation, school administrators, who obviously skipped biology classes, recently installed a tampon dispenser in a boys’ bathroom that was mandated by equally clueless Democrat state officials who passed a law declaring: “Every school must provide free menstrual products in women’s restrooms, all-gender restrooms, and at least one men’s bathroom.”
The students, exhibiting how much more knowledgeable they are about biological anatomy than school and state officials, ripped the dispenser off the wall just 20 minutes after it was installed. The principal, striving to become that state’s Deylan Mulvaney of woke primary education, was enraged.
Instead of awarding the boys an “A” for extra credit the school’s principal labeled the action “disgusting” and an “egregious instance of vandalism and destruction of property” in an email he sent out with a subject line that read “I am feeling ‘dis-’ right now.” How does he think the young fellows who spotted the tampon machine felt?
The biologically challenged nitwits that run that state and school system, might want to ponder the fact that of today’s world population of 8,030,610,062, women gave birth to 8,030,610,062. Men gave birth to 0.
At a high school in Illinois, a parental rights organization filed a civil rights complaint a week ago against a high school for allegedly offering programs and activities exclusively for black and Hispanic students excluding whites and Asians.
Parents Defending Education (PDE) brought the complaint against Illinois Math and Science Academy in Aurora, Illinois. It says school emails obtained by PDE indicate that BHSC’s annual retreat is racially discriminatory toward individuals who aren’t black or Hispanic.
In another example of the prioritizing of left-wing activism over education in the nation’s institutions of higher learning, Houston’s Rice University is being ridiculed over a course that takes DEI idiocy to new absurdity levels. The course, which is called “Afrochemistry: The Study of Black-Life Matter,” claims to address “inequities in chemistry and chemical education” and doesn’t conclude with a final exam. Why? Is a final in this course considered racist?
Hopping on the educational nuttiness bandwagon is Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, whose Chief Diversity Officer wrote “Privilege is a set of unearned benefits given to people who are in a specific social group. Privilege operates on personal, interpersonal, cultural, and institutional levels, and it provides advantages and favors to members of dominant groups at the expense of members of other groups.”
The Maryland-based hospital identified white people, able-bodied people, heterosexuals, cisgender people, males, Christians, middle or owning-class people, middle-aged people and English-speaking people as being privileged.
Wait! What? Heterosexuals? Think about that.
In stark contrast to other Ivy League institutions Dartmouth College recently backtracked and said it will restore its SAT requirement for admissions beginning with the Class of 2029, making it the first Ivy League university to reinstate the testing requirement after doing away with it after Covid.
Dartmouth president Sian Beilock wrote that the decision to reimplement the standardized test was made in response to a faculty study that found that “standardized test scores are an important predictor of a student’s success in Dartmouth’s curriculum” regardless of a “student’s background or family income.”
They didn’t need a study to figure that out. The racialists started complaining that the test was racist and discriminatory because blacks on average did poorly on it. Black scholar, author and economist Tom Sowell agrees that the tests discriminate. He says they discriminate against people who after years in school still don’t know anything.
Florida governed by a clear-headed Ron DeSantis who abandoned his presidential campaign, is picking off where he left off much to the relief of that state’s residents.
The governor’s influence is forewarning schools, parents, and students to remain alert to progressive academic malfeasance.
A discerning young Fernandina Beach freshman student enrolled at Florida State College at Jacksonville took the governor’s advice to heart, demonstrating how much more perceptive she is than the far-left indoctrinators that staff that institution anticipated.
She pointed out to her family, friends, and local media the irrational nonsense the college was inflicting upon unsuspecting impressionable neophyte students in a required course called “Strategies for the Pursuit of Knowledge” that promotes sexual reassignment or transgenderism as normal.
In a January 20 Wall Street Journal piece James Taranto said Florida is “…a state whose governor and Legislature have declared war on identity politics pointing out there are no racial preferences in college admissions.” He added that the University of Florida is “ideally positioned to become the Harvard of the Unwoke.”
Sarasota’s New College recently voted to abolish its gender studies concentration, fired its president, and suspended the college’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices.
It’s looking a lot sunnier on campuses in the Sunshine State.
