A program overseen by a Minnesota teachers union runs a “cohort” of members advocating for “racial equity” in schools.
Racial Equity Advocates (REA) is a program of the Minnesota Educator Academy’s Facing Inequities and Racism in Education (FIRE) project, which itself is a program of the Education Minnesota teachers union.
“The FIRE program includes the Racial Equity Advocate cohort program and a series of professional development modules for educators to grow an anti-racism mindset and opportunities to engage with Education Minnesota’s members to interrupt and dismantle institutional racism,” a website for the program explains.
The REA cohort program was created for teachers “passionate about racial and social justice in education.” Various tweets from the FIRE program show teachers engaged in “cultural competency training” and “interrupting whiteness training.”
“The Minnesota Educator Academy’s member-driven program for Facing Inequities and Racism in Education aims to disrupt systemic racism and racial inequities in Minnesota’s education system,” reads the program page, which is filed under “professional development” on the Education Minnesota website.
REA is looking for a new group of members for the 2022-23 school year. The program page seeks applicants who “understand that education — and unionism — is built on systems of white supremacy” and are “comfortable with difficult discussions.”
“The REA cohort is an ongoing program that works to create a network of educators dedicated to helping members grow in their own racial equity journeys and to expand their anti-racism mindset,” the program page reads. “By joining the cohort, REAs will be empowered to work as members of the union to activate change at the building level and beyond.”
The embedded tweets are hilarious.
More evidence, as if any were needed, that it is time to close the so-called “public” schools.
I think it is time to become a teacher and interupt those idiots.
“Anti-racism” to leftists really means racism against whites.
how do progressives spell communism?
If you can afford it, or even if you go into hock, it is well worth it to send your children to private school or do home school.
Yeah right! Hate the folks who put the food on your table ;-(
How about teaching kids meritocracy and need to excel by working hard?
That was the first thing I thought of.
I think that basically, whatever a leftist says, you can safely assume that they really mean the opposite. But typically, that either involves a lot of self-flattery, or outright hostility toward others.
My friends laughed at me a few years ago when I said old white guys like me will be hunted in the streets by the end of our lives. I believe it’s true.
Teachers’ unions are amongst the most evil and insidious of institutions. They are not normal ‘labor unions’ concerned with salaries and adequate coffee breaks like they want us to think, they are political advocacy groups that use the government to kidnap their victims (your kids), and indoctrinate them with the current social messaging download. In North Korea it is explicit. In ‘the west’ it’s done with secrecy and sleight of hand.
That’s racist. /sarc
I just generally don’t listen to any of these A holes. Not a word.
About time to oust the Teachers Unions and Department of Miseducation ... I meant Education
