    "A new human rights curriculum that was recently introduced to middle schools and high schools all across New York is a disservice to students because it wastes precious instruction time which would be more wisely spent on academic fundamentals.

    The web event originated from a classroom at Chestnut Ridge Middle School, a school with a student population that recently scored below-average on statewide tests, according to the New York Times. It is extremely difficult to see how lessons focusing on corporate “greed,” landmine awareness, Chinese labor camps and abolishing the death penalty will do anything to raise student test scores in math, reading and science.

    This is another case of public schools using class time to indoctrinate students with a radical, leftist political agenda. No curriculum that promotes the views of Van Jones should be allowed to pollute the minds of school kids."
    Breitbart: NY Schools Teaching Speak Truth to Power Curriculum Featuring Van Jones | The Party Of Know

    "The general agenda of this program is typical teacher-mumbo jumbo speak that seeks to hide a real leftist agenda of dumbing down students while they learn to submit to learned authority.

    Browsing through the so-called ‘Human Rights Education’ curriculum, I get the sense that students who follow it and learn from it are not going to respect my human rights because they, in all their great wisdom, will feel that other people’s human rights are not being protected or supported or fully embraced until I lose all my rights and am reduced to the state of an animal, hunted because of my conservative beliefs. The HRE education is hostile to the US Constitution, hostile to the Bill of Rights, and hostile to natural rights philosophy, instead embracing the Universal Declaration of Rights, embracing a strong government that will redistribute wealth, and embracing communist philosophy."

    As long as this is not a required course, or tought as part of another, like English, I don't have a real problem with this.

    B/c the parents of the kids that sign them up for this already teach that at home.

    If this is required, I'd like to know where the mandatory teaching of the Constitution is.

    Why the heck would we want the government school system in a free market republic turning out radical totalitarian global viewpoint that promotes the work and teaching of Van Jones, ...

    "Jones resigned in September, 2009 after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

    Jones also called for “resistance” against the U.S., among multiple other revelations of his extremist rhetoric and ideology."Jones was a founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM.

    Other so-called defenders include Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus, who was recently accused of misusing humanitarian aid, the Daliai Lama, and South African activist, Desmond Tutu.

    Both Yunus and Tutu are founders of The Global Elders, which has gone on solidarity visits to leaders of the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations

    ... Jones founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, describing that organization as “a strategy center for documenting and exposing human rights violations in the United States-particularly those perpetuated by law enforcement.”

    ...Baker was an avowed socialist who worked closely with communist activists. She also participated in events that were close to the radical Weathermen domestic terrorist group founded by Bill Ayers, President Obama’s associate for many years.

    Klein: New York schools promote communist activist. New ‘human rights’ curriculum espouse teachings of ‘remarkable’ figures « RBO

    Whether it is required or not, where is the alternative side of these perspecives in government schools?


    If you are not familiar with the radicalization and misinformation, I hope you find time to view this vid, used in many elementary schools, as well:



    Check out the 'facts' at about 8 minutes....

    Still copacetic?

    Makes ya wonder really why these teachers want to teach, knowing it doesn't pay worth squat. To promote an agenda to the young?

    Armed after college with my degree in Journalism, I never worked a day in that field. Because I wanted to MAKE MONEY not "change the world." There was no real money to be made in my chosen field, so I adapted and went into another. And did very well compared to my classmates who fell on their financial future swords, for some odd reason.

    One of them has been working at the local paper for nearly 30 years, and just made regional editor! Woo-Hoo! He finally broke 40K and hasn't changed the world yet!

    Might want to re-read my post.

    The kids that will go see this tripe have parents the believe this tripe.

    If it's mandatory, I will expect the Constitution to also be mandatory. Since I know no school (I ever heard of) teaches it, I will make a complete ass out of myself to keep my kids from being taught communism.

    Off the top of my head, as I know of no stats on the subject, I wonder how many HS students' parents have any input or interest in what the kids choose, if they have that option.

    As for communism, my children aren't middle school age yet, but we regularly discuss communism and other political philosophies. I hope many folks do. We read the Constitution, as well.

    Kids of parents that don't care, don't pay attention in class, or go for the easy "A".

    My kids will never get a class that has not met my approval.

    My eldest takes some real junk electives. Pop culture, mysticism (about monsters and myth) And I check them all before I let her take them. Why do I allow such tripe? The most important classes she takes are honor classes and she has a 4.1-2 gpa

    I'll bet you never miss an open school day, either!

    You do know that you are a rarity?
