Public schools have become little more than government indoctrination centers in this country.
Case in point: Activist Post reported that 12 and 13-year-olds were forced to write what basically amounted to suicide notes as part of a class assignment on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks:
“A language arts teacher at Fairview Junior High in Alvin, Texas asked students to pretend they were trapped in one of the towers or planes, then asking who they would write a letter to if they knew they were going to die.”
Parents were understandably outraged.
Then my daughter came home from her Austin, Texas high school to tell me that she too had an assignment in her drama class where she had to imagine herself in the twin towers on 9/11 just before the planes hit. She was told to write about what she would miss most (you know, because she was dead) and what she would regret she never got to do (again, because terrorists killed her by slamming a jet into the building she was in).
My kid talks about her ‘assignment’:
The teacher then told my daughter’s class the reason she was giving them this assignment was because my daughter’s generation ‘lacked empathy’. Now it was my turn to feel outraged.
While I recognize that many of the people in my generation and generations before me were made to complete repeated lessons and watch films on the treatment of Jewish people during World War II, I never had an assignment where I had to pretend I was a Jewish person siting in a gas chamber pondering what I’d miss most after the sprayers turned on.
Why are our public schools asking kids who were babies or who weren’t even alive yet when it happened to pretend they are 9/11 victims and write their own last words?
The only conclusion I can come to is that kids are being indoctrinated into our trauma-based society where we give up our natural, God-given rights at the very mention of the phrase “9/11” as if that is just the rational, expected trade we must make. If our nation’s children can be traumatized enough early enough, perhaps they’ll submit to the United Police States of America just as easily as the adults in this country have since that day.
Founding father Benjamin Franklin warned about giving up essential liberty for a little temporary safety. We have not listened.
In case you haven’t noticed, something really screwed up is going on with our public education system in this country. For more proof on that, look no further than the types of homework assignments that are being given to our children in government schools these days:
- Fourth grade students in Illinois were recently given a “What Is Government?” worksheet with a cartoon Uncle Sam character holding a baby wearing a matching stars and bars top hat that literally told the children “Government is like a nation’s family. Families take care of children and make sure they are safe, healthy and educated, and free to enjoy life.” Uh-huh. Apparently Uncle Sam actually believes he’s your uncle now.
- A private school in New York City made students as young as 14 write suicide notes that included justification for why they would kill themselves.
- Arizona fourth graders were given a worksheet asking students what would happen if a woman found another woman’s hairclip under her bed. One girl wrote, “The husband had cheated, and he was in big trouble.” The school apologized, claiming the teacher hadn’t fully read the assignment before handing it out.
- Kindergarteners in Illinois are being taught sex education, including the examination of different family structures, such as whether or not there’s two moms at home. The curriculum follows the recommendations of The Future of Sex Education (FoSE) sponsored in part by the Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education that includes an advisory committee of senior officials from Planned Parenthood and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
- Seems like fourth graders are particularly targeted. This time fourth grade students in Florida were made to write, “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights…to Be Safer” following a lesson on the Constitution.
- Earlier this year, female high school students in a small Texas town were girls were made to dress up in full-length Islamic burqas while students were told Muslim terrorists are to be referred to as “freedom fighters“.
- Tenth graders fell victim to the common core in Arizona, as students were made to read passages from the novel Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia out loud in class. Here’s an example: “Hugo and Felicia stripped in their room, dissolving easily into one another, and made love against the whitewashed walls. Hugo bit Felicia’s breast and left purplish bands of bruises on her upper thighs. He knelt before her in the tub and massaged black Spanish soap between her legs. He entered her repeatedly from behind.” All that before she ties the guy up with her underwear and he calls her his Bitch. That’s what passes for tenth grade reading material in this country. Who could make this up?
- A teacher in Tennessee banned a ten-year-old girl from writing about God.
- High school seniors in Texas were told they’d receive zeroes on a writing assignment about what they did over the weekend if what they did involved attending a gun show.
- A reading assessment prep given to third graders in Seattle was filled with Bill Gates hero worship.
- Even online charter schools parents homeschool through are not indoctrination-free. A homeschooling dad from Maine found his son was being subjected to lessons that espouse the virtues of communist China.
- A Texas fifth grader was given a CSCOPE curriculum worksheet entitled, “Why Can’t Kids Vote?” that said, “Adults think we don’t understand things like global warming and war. But we know these are things that need to be fixed. Adults have not fixed any of it yet, so maybe it’s time to give the kids a chance to make things better. The adults clearly need our help because they do not always make the best decisions.”
- A third grade teacher in Georgia gave the class slavery-themed math homework with questions like, “If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?”
This list could literally go on and on.
The majority of students in this country are educated within our government-funded public school system; these kids are America’s future.
Add all these assignments to the fact that many schools are beginning to actually resemble prisons, complete with biometric palm scanners in the cafeterias and rules that force students to kneel to their teachers, and we as Americans really have to start asking ourselves what our nation’s future is going to look like.
