School Teacher: We Don’t Want You to Know the Radical Stuff We’ve Been Teaching Your Kids

They tell you they want parental participation in the education of the students.  In facts the educrats really only want money and a free hand to teach anything they want and to indoctrinate without obstruction by parents.

 “In a series of tweets on Saturday, a Philadelphia teacher, author, and columnist named Matthew R. Kay expressed anxiety about teachers’ ability to effectively accomplish their “equality/inclusion work” over Zoom calls when they can’t be sure who is overhearing them. The thread has since been hidden but was captured by Corey DeAngelis, director of school choice at the Reason Foundation.

“How much have students depended on the (somewhat) secure barriers of our physical classrooms to encourage vulnerability?” Kay asks. “How many of us have installed some version of ‘what happens here stay here’ to help this?”

Kay continues to outline his concerns about the “damage” that parents can do in “honest conversations about gender/sexuality.” While Kay says he is mainly concerned about conservative parents, he adds that those on the left can be harmful as well.”

Parents teaching facts and teachers teaching ideology and falsehoods, that is the problem.  The kids will have emotion trauma between the biological facts and the scams of the teachers.  Another reason for homeschooling.

School Teacher: We Don’t Want You to Know the Radical Stuff We’ve Been Teaching Your Kids

Madeline Peltzer, Townhall,  8/10/20

Despite Democrats’ push for remote learning this fall, some public school teachers have concerns. Not because they’re worried about the quality of education children will receive, but because they don’t want parents to find out about the radical progressive agenda they’ve been pushing for years.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, a Philadelphia teacher, author, and columnist named Matthew R. Kay expressed anxiety about teachers’ ability to effectively accomplish their “equality/inclusion work” over Zoom calls when they can’t be sure who is overhearing them. The thread has since been hidden but was captured by Corey DeAngelis, director of school choice at the Reason Foundation.

“How much have students depended on the (somewhat) secure barriers of our physical classrooms to encourage vulnerability?” Kay asks. “How many of us have installed some version of ‘what happens here stay here’ to help this?”

Kay continues to outline his concerns about the “damage” that parents can do in “honest conversations about gender/sexuality.” While Kay says he is mainly concerned about conservative parents, he adds that those on the left can be harmful as well.

“If we are engaged in the messy work of destabilizing a kids [sic] racism or homophobia or transphobia – how much do we want their classmates’ parents piling on?” he wonders.

One teacher replying to Kay concurred, calling parents “dangerous.”

But many more took to Twitter to express outrage over the comments.

Conservatives have been sounding the alarm about public school indoctrination for years. Kay’s unwitting admission not only shows that these concerns are warranted but demonstrates just how entitled many teachers have become to indoctrinating other people’s children.

Ironically, Kay’s sentiments come even as teachers across the country protest a return to in-person instruction, citing COVID-19 concerns. In Arizona, a teachers’ union has planned a “death march” complete with gravestone-shaped signs bearing epitaphs blaming the governor for sacrificing them to the pandemic. After New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that schools would reopen in the fall, teachers pushed back, calling for remote classes and asking the governor how many teachers was planning to “kill.” And in Washington, D.C., public school teachers piled “body bags” outside administrative offices to protest returning to work.

But in light of Kay’s Twitter thread, closed public schools might not be such a loss after all. As DeAngelis points out, the rant highlights the need for school choice more than ever. Parents — not government employees — have the right and duty to educate their children in accordance with their values, whether that’s through private school, parochial school, charter school, or homeschool. 

Kay said the quiet part out loud. That should be all parents need to know to break the left’s education monopoly once and for all.

    Teachers unions are just fundraising arms for the Democrat party…

    Defund the Teacher’s unions…

  2. Does anyone find it interesting that the teacher unions are promoting candidates in races having nothing to do with their school district?

    Remember if you voted Democrat you are the problem.

    Now about how the Constitution is racist. Business owners are thieves. Intellectual products are stealing.

    Yes it is all being taught in schools repeatedly year in and year out.

  3. Reading this makes me glad that my daughter is the science teacher in a charter school that encourages parent involvement.

    FACE IT – The fact is that most teachers today are also products of public education; so it’s a matter go garbage in/garbage out. Also, one of the easiest majors in college is in education. Most of those that take an education major are products of public education and they go from public education to college without having any real world experiences. And they’re the ones that will teach a new generation of people what the real world is?

  5. I had to sit in my son’s class for a couple years and work from the back because of behavioral issues. The teachers who put up with me being there were angels. And while I didn’t always agree with everything I certainly indicated that I did publicly. Nothing I felt that that I needed to address privately with my son either because he goes to a school that more “rightwing” than me religiously (meaning that society will be enough of a drag on my son that I needn’t worry about the school teaching him stuff that I might not agree with. Besides, nuance isn’t always good for kids–they’ll have years ot learn that. What’s important first is instilling morality.

    Oh yeah and public school is child abuse.

  6. Are the public school teachers (those in the Unions) getting their regular salary all this time during the CoVid without having to go to the schools? I assume they are supposedly generating lesson plans and having video conferences with students one by one, or — ?? If the teachers who are not working were not getting paid maybe they would be more interested in going back to the classrooms. It is just stupid to claim you’re scared kids will give teachers the virus when there is no scientific evidence for that at all.
    Thus is looks like there is another motive for teachers to refuse to go back to teaching the kids in schools.
