Teachers in Virginia's largest school district have developed a new "anti-racist" and "culturally responsible" curriculum that will be available to students as early as this fall.
Social studies teachers from Fairfax County collaborated with other Virginia public school teachers to revamp their history curriculum, using a framework from Teaching Tolerance, the educational arm of the liberal nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center. The new curriculum encourages students to "examine materials, events, and institutions critically attending to power, position, and bias" and will be available for use in 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th-grade classrooms.
Colleen Eddy, Fairfax County Public Schools social studies coordinator, said the new curriculum addresses the "overrepresentation of white and Eurocentric history" and the lack of "diverse perspectives" in education. Eddy singled out the district's U.S. history courses in particular, for which she says African-American history "deserves a truer and fuller account."
Teaching Tolerances list of "Essential Knowledge" for third through fifth grade students includes teaching that "the United States was founded on protecting the interests of white, Christian men who owned property." It also says slavery was foundational to the growth of the U.S. economy and the countrys founding documents were created to protect the institution of slavery.
Southern Poverty Law Center, known for including conservative organizations on its list of "hate groups," created Teaching Tolerance to promote "anti-bias" and "social justice" education in classrooms.
Virginias social studies curriculum is due to be revised in 2022 and is currently being reviewed by Gov. Ralph Northams (D.) commission on African American History Education.
Great, Virginia is finally getting its first BLM/Communist approved public education curriculum.
We’re all good Comrades now!
Another reason to homeschool.
The one good thing about the fake Covid panic is that it introduced millions to the freedom of homeschool.
Proving DJT’s speech section about public schools was 100% correct.
Will they present the curriculum in Spanish? Otherwise, in Fairfax county, it wont have much impact.
This crap is going to cause whites to band together and see that they are going to have to defend themselves if they are to have a future. BLM is creating white nationalists.
And they'll be plenty of blacks joining those whites for the fight.
Doesnt the school board comprised of parents and civic leaders determine the school curriculum?
I knew this would be Fairfax County Public Schools.
Jeez...Virginias going down the toilet faster than an Obama turd. Unbelievable!
It also says slavery was foundational to the growth of the U.S. economy and the countrys founding documents were created to protect the institution of slavery.
Even though virtually the entire African Continent practiced Slavery then and ever since recorded History, and they still do so Today
Even Though your Ancestors Were SOLD into Slavery by their families to the Muslim Slave Traders.
If not for America you would be????
But the poor unfortunate students have been rendered brain-numbed by their progressive ignorant teachers.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is none of its name.
Parents, get your children out of these schools NOW!
Sure glad they are educating the chilren.
Here in NC the state is swamped with notices from parents who intend to homeschool this fall, so much so that their website has been down for the last week. People are becoming tired of this sh!t.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
This is bullshiite.
Yet another reason to pull kids of of gubmint schools. SPLC is a racist hate group.
How many more do you need folks? If you haven’t done so by now, you probably never will.
being for white people doesn’t automatically turn whites into white nationalists.
I’m starting to think that these communists are realizing that they are still one or two generations away from overthrowing the government, so they are doubling down on the propaganda curriculum for kids.
