Damn, that hurt.
There are a couple education-related items in the news right now but you can find others incidents rather easily.
Florida Teacher Reassigned After Making Pro-Trump Facebook Post Supporting Mass Deportation During School Hours
Veronica Fleming was removed from her role as a computer lab teacher and assigned to administrative duties after she wrote that “glad about massive deportation” because it means there will be “less mouths to feed.”
The teacher taught at Parkside Elementary School, where 96 percent of students are minorities. Her post caused outrage among parents at the school, where 70 percent of students are Latino and 20 percent are Haitian.
Fleming is believed to have posted the status during school hours as she taught students who could be affected by deportation.
A petition calling for her firing has reached over 3,000 signatures.
THEN THERE’S THIS:
New York Teacher Disciplined for Anti-Trump Vocabulary Assignment
A teacher from a Staten Island, New York school has been disciplined after giving her students a vocabulary assignment that contained an anti-Trump question.
Adria Zawatsky, a veteran sixth-grade English teacher at Paulo Intermediate School (I.S. 75) received a letter of reprimand following a meeting with the school’s principal, Kenneth Zapata.
Zawatsky, who earns a six-figure annual salary, was disciplined after parent Vincent Ungro of Annadale reported to the Staten Island Advance that his 11-year-old daughter brought home a vocabulary assignment with the following fill-in-the-blank statements:
“President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.”
The choices students were given to respond to the statements were the words, “haughty” and “humble.”
A second statement which read, “Barack Obama set a _________ when he became the first African American president,” was supposed to be completed with the word “precedent.”
Ungro instructed his daughter not to complete the three statements regarding Trump and Obama. He added his own hand-written note to the teacher on the assignment that read, “Please keep your political views to yourself and do not try to influence my daughter.”
Firstly, I do not believe I was expressing a political view at all on my vocabulary sheet. My reference to President Trump was about his personality traits rather than his ability as a president.
The media is nonstop on very similar references. This is considered freedom of speech and I feel I have the same right as they do.
THIS ARTICLE MAKES A PRETTY GOOD CASE WHY TEACHERS ARE NEARLY ALL FAR LEFT
Why Professors Object to Being Recorded
Olga Perez Stable Cox, went into an extended hate-rant against the president-elect. Among other things, she described the Trump election as an “act of terrorism,” labelled him a “white supremacist” and called Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.”
When a student who recorded the diatribe posted the recording on social media, the professor’s union, the Coast Federation of Educators, AFT local chapter 1911, posted this message on Facebook:
“This is an illegal recording without the permission of the instructor. The student will be identified and may be facing legal action.”
The aforementioned California Educational Code states:
“The use by any person, including a student, of any electronic listening or recording device in any classroom without the prior consent of the instructor is prohibited. . . .”
They fear having what they say exposed to the general public.
Our colleges, universities, (and an increasing number of high schools and elementary schools) have been transformed from educational institutions into indoctrination institutions. With the left-wing takeover of universities, their primary aim has become graduating as many leftists as possible.
Thus, in the “social sciences” – disciplines outside the natural sciences and math – a large number of college teachers inject their politics into their classrooms. And if they are recorded, the general public will become aware of just how politicized their classroom lectures are.
Most professors objecting to being recorded know on some level that they are persuasive only when their audience is composed largely of very young people just out of high school. They know that if their ideas are exposed to adults, they may be revealed as intellectual lightweights.
THEY CANNOT TOLERATE A LIGHT SHINED TO EXPOSE THEIR SUBVERSION TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EDUCATION AND INDOCTRINATION
