District administrator calls for ‘privileged white voices’ to be dismissed from curriculum plans in California

Here is another example of the blatant racism running amuck in California schools.  Why wasn’t this person immediately fired and her State education credentials taken away?  Does anybody doubt that every day, in every decision she is using her bigotry to harm students?

“A California district administrator involved in overseeing curriculum, Samia Shoman, called for “privileged White voices” to be removed from influencing against a far-left ethnic studies curriculum.

Shoman oversees curriculum in the San Mateo Union High School district as manager of English learners and academic support programs. The email was dated March 2021 and was obtained via public record request by Zachor Legal.

Shoman contacted the California state superintendent, Tony Thurmond, in March 2021. Shoman blasted “white voices” and said they should have no part in influencing the curriculum.

And the State Superintendent—known for HIS bigotry—did not immediately take actions against this Klan in Tan advocate.    In the 1960’s churches led the battle against racism in our schools—why are they silent now?

EXCLUSIVE — A California district administrator involved in overseeing curriculum, Samia Shoman, called for “privileged White voices” to be removed from influencing against a far-left ethnic studies curriculum.

Shoman oversees curriculum in the San Mateo Union High School district as manager of English learners and academic support programs. The email was dated March 2021 and was obtained via public record request by Zachor Legal.

Shoman contacted the California state superintendent, Tony Thurmond, in March 2021. Shoman blasted “white voices” and said they should have no part in influencing the curriculum.

“We urge the [state board of education] not to give in to the pressures and influences of political lobbyists, racist & privileged white voices, and individuals,” she wrote.

Another issue Shoman took up with the proposed ethnic studies curriculum was the idea of “multiple perspectives.”

“The proposed revisions privileges terms like ‘multiple perspectives,’ ‘diversity,’ ‘all students’ and ‘broad range of groups’ undermining the primary focus on the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) communities that compose over 80 percent of California’s student population.”

Shoman went on to call for a more extreme version of the proposed Black Lives Matter curriculum lesson.

“[E]ven in the African American lesson on the Black Lives Matter movement, which is a direct response white supremacy fails to call out and analyze racism and systemic oppression,” she said.

Shoman, a pro-Palestinian advocate, blasted a proposed revision in the curriculum that would include Jewish-American studies. 

“This is grossly inaccurate, and has no institutional history,” she said about including Jews in ethnic studies under the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) umbrella.

Marc Greendorfer of Zachor Legal told Fox News, “The position taken by Samia Shoman and others to treat Jews, the true indigenous people of the land of Israel, as ‘white’ occupiers and colonists is utterly at odds with history and facts.”

He went on to take aim at California’s ethnic studies curriculum as “indoctrination.” “While the idea of ensuring students are taught about the history of all ethnicities is one we support, we have found that these programs are anything but educational. Instead, they are political indoctrination by extremists who are working to institutionalize bigotry and hate in education,” said Greendo

  1. Rico Lagattutar says

    If white voices should have no voice in influencing the curriculum, then they should not have to pay for the program. This is just more left wing crap. Give me your money and go away, This is just another reason the middle class is going away and taking their money with them.

  2. It is not laughable but at the same time it is laughable.

    They want to install radicalized Socialism and / Communism that has failed the societies of thousands of years.

    There you go.

    You still want to vote Democrat?

    Why?
