This happened in Florida, think it can’t happen here? Christopher Rufo formerly leaned left – until he realized far left policies don’t work.
This comment was made to the story yesterday:
In my son’s Sociology class at Heartland the teacher had them wear wristbands that identify their pronouns. Our whole culture has bowed the knee to this nonsense.
I heard from one Unit 5 teacher about yesterday’s story. I’m not going to print the email because the teacher might be identifiable from it.
I have them fill out a survey with relevant info, and then we do a get to know you activity where I can learn about their interests and figure out why they are taking the course. By the time that all happens, it’s pretty much time to go.
Syllabus, rules, and content fires up on day two.
We were not told to cover any particular topics, so if teachers were discussing pronouns and such, it was of their own accord.
In full disclosure, my survey gives kids the chance to tell me how they want to be addressed, but those results aren’t openly discussed beyond me honoring their requests. I did have a couple of students this year that pulled me aside privately and made requests, but it wasn’t a classroom discussion.
I also didn’t hear any students talking about anything either.
Hope this helps.
It sounds like woke teachers could have easily used surveys to discuss pronouns with their classes.
Enough seats on both Unit 5 and District 87 are up for election early next year to do the same thing that happened in Florida yesterday – of course more than 10-15% of people have to vote!
