Calling it child abuse is a good idea. And where are conservatives? Why does the school reform movement continue to fail? Both answers can be found in these pages. Here is John Scotto writing at American Thinker:
Many “educators” today sadly have become indoctrinators. Educators and professors who teach students to use logic and critical thinking are doing God’s work. Teachers who spur cognition and who encourage students to question, to read, and to investigate all points of view are truly teaching. On the flip-side of the coin, we have teachers who now subscribe to methods of leftist indoctrination and who are currently using this indoctrination as a weapon within the classroom.
It becomes dangerous when these indoctrinators start using propaganda as a means of engaging young and impressionable minds. Indoctrination eventually turns into brainwashing. “Teachers” who feel it is their duty to render students incapable of using any kind of logic, critical thought, or reason when forming an opinion inevitably cause irreparable damage to young minds.
Filling up a young student’s mind with leftist propaganda through the method of relentless left-wing indoctrination is becoming all too familiar a process within our modern-day public school system. Scary tactics are now being employed by leftist ideologues, many of whom seem to subscribe to a radical political agenda — an agenda that involves pushing many of their students straight into a collective leftist hive. There seems to be a coordinated effort by many educators who are committed to scrambling and rewiring many students’ minds. Many of these same teachers are also promoting the elimination of freedom of speech.
We all must ask ourselves what kind of damage the radical leftist Common Core curriculum has inflicted upon teachers, students, and families. History has shown us that taking the power out of the parents’ hands and placing it in the hands of leftist bureaucrats has never been a wise thing to do. When simple math problems begin resembling the plans for Apollo 12, multiple problems are bound to ensue.
