In an event the school calls an isolated incident, but a student recalls happening at least 5 times, a teacher TAPED a mask to a child’s face. Because he forgot to put one on when he got up for a glass of water.
Like. This heifer took some scotch tape, and arts and crafted this nine year old boy’s face in front of a classroom full of laughing kids. I couldn’t find any evidence that the mother blacked out from rage and attacked the teacher, but I wouldn’t hold it against her if she did.
My friend’s daughter threw up in her mask today. Threw up IN her mask. When asked why she didn’t just take it off, she said she was afraid of getting yelled at.
At this point I’m wondering if we don’t need all teachers to submit to a psyche evaluation every few years. Between the English teacher who was so proud of herself for getting students to pledge allegiance to the Pride flag, and the AP Government teacher who saw the school year as “180 days to turn kids into little revolutionaries”, public schools are looking like centers for indoctrination and desensitization, run by escaped mental patients.
Safe, stable environment? Nope, sorry. Some of these teachers have “the future is female” displayed in front of their male students. A teacher in Wisconsin berated a student, calling him a dummy and a jerk, and said he should hear how everyone talks about him. These kinds of teachers don’t value our kids.
Quality education? Nope sorry, that time has been sacrificed for social justice and “social emotional learning” curriculums. Character development? If the teachers don’t have character, they’re certainly not capable of passing anything worthwhile on to the students.
I’m not against all teachers, there are some really hard workers who want the best for our kids. But they’re working next to douchebags whose social and political agendas are far more important to them than the children’s basic education.
I’ve written it before, and I’ll say it again…Go to school board meetings, join the PTA, ask to see your kid’s curriculum (especially sexual education). Don’t assume the schools your kids attend have their best interests in mind. And if you don’t like what you see, pull your kids out of public school!!
I know it’s easier said than done. Everyone doesn’t have time to homeschool. Everyone doesn’t have the money for private school. But I know one family who homeschools at night because both parents work during the day. We have personally rearranged our entire budget to make private school work. Political and social agendas seem to carry far more weight with teachers and administrators these days, and our kids are the ones who suffer the consequences of these actions.
I’ve seen a bigger fuss made over a steak not being cooked to temperature than I’m seeing some people make over their kid’s education right now. It’s time to stand up.
