District 87 is meeting tonight (5:00 at BHS) to demand your children wear masks when the school year starts. There is no proof masks work and lots of proof they don’t. The School Board will do it anyway.
What the School Board should be doing is insuring rouge teachers don’t follow the lead of the National Education Association and teach Critical Race Theory to your kids. Both District 87 and Unit 5 have publicly stated they don’t, it is obvious both do. Any program that pits races against each other or schemes to improve a race with Equity is racist. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is racist because individuals don’t matter, the collective white race, black race, or whatever is treated equally even though all members are not guilty and all members aren’t innocent. Judging people based on their character isn’t Marxist so it can’t be allowed.
Back to the NEA:
See their CRT statement here: https://bit.ly/37hn8TI
The statement not only says they will encourage members to teach Critical Race Theory, it mentions the 1619 Project by name. Yes, District 87 – somebody at your school is teaching CRT with or without your approval.
The NEA supports the Marxist of Black Lives Matter and Howard Zinn – the far leftist with the same ideology.
Read the whole statement. It is appalling that kids graduate who can’t read, write, and do math but they will be able to tell how oppressed they are. I could post appalling excerpts but there are too many. You need to read them yourself.
So how are teachers who are still members of the union the problem?
The Bloomington Education Association is required the file tax returns. They are also required by law to make them public. The latest tax return online is from 2006.
The below is from that tax return. Union dues paid by the teachers are ending up supporting the NEA and their Marxist agenda: https://projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/organizations/371035837
Teachers can stop these Marxists by not giving them money!
Parents that can need to take their kids out of the local indoctrination centers.
Obviously the schools aren’t going to demand your kids are educated instead of indoctrinated because they won’t even admit CRT is being taught.
