This is literally the second story I've written today regarding reasons for removing our children from public school. This wasn't something that I had planned nor am I just harping on this.
The reason that I'm even discussing this at all is because this is what's currently happening in our schools right now!
An elementary school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania recently forced their fifth-grade students to celebrate "black communism".
This entailed a mock rally in which they celebrated black power and honored Angela Davis, who is a devout communist.
According to whistleblower documents and a source within the school, a fifth-grade teacher at the inner-city William D. Kelley School designed a social studies curriculum to celebrate Davis, praising the “black communist” for her fight against “injustice and inequality.” As part of the lesson, the teacher asked students to “describe Davis’ early life,” reflect on her vision of social change, and “define communist”—presumably in favorable terms.
At the conclusion of the unit, the teacher led the ten- and eleven-year-old students into the school auditorium to “simulate” a Black Power rally to “free Angela Davis” from prison, where she had once been held while awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy, kidnapping, and murder. The students marched on the stage, holding signs that read “Black Power,” “Jail Trump,” “Free Angela,” and “Black Power Matters.” They chanted about Africa and ancestral power, then shouted “Free Angela! Free Angela!” as they stood at the front of the stage.
Something should be mentioned about this school in passing. This whole, the William D. Kelly School, is one of the worst-performing school in the entire state of Pennsylvania. The number of those who are considered to be proficient in math is only 3% by the sixth-grade, and 9% are proficient in reading.
Folks, this is what happens when the government takes control over schools and you make it hard to fire bad teachers who have tenure.
