Indoctrinating our young
Got to be honest with you, how does a nine-year-old kid know that he is gay? When this Old Settler was 9 years old, he didn’t like girls much. Thought about sex Not At All! (On the other hand, I did want to be President, so I invented a country called “Bugtown,” started a newspaper [of which I was editor and publisher] which endorsed me. Surprise, surprise, I won the imaginary election.)
Isn’t this evidence that the Democrats’ fixation on identity politics has gone off the deep end? Or am I missing something? (That’s an unlocked Porsche Panamerica warmed up, gas tank full and running for all you teenaged thread hijackers!)
Pete Buttigieg shared an emotional moment with a young supporter in Denver on Saturday night.
How about telling the world the kid is 9 years old and doesn’t know what he is yet, except that he’s 9 years old!
Blaska’s First Bottom Line: The young fella has a better case than that Swedish brat for complaining that someone stole his childhood.
Meanwhile, in Madison’s public schools
Kindergartners through fourth-graders were exposed to thought-provoking subjects such as climate change by seventh-graders at Jefferson Middle School. As part of a unit on environmental justice, they created picture books and then read them to the younger students. (Source here.)
A group of parents filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging the Madison school district’s transgender policy is unconstitutional because it prohibits teachers and staff from informing parents that their children want to switch sexes. (Source here.)
Letter to the editor:
The notion expressed by Ali Muldrow that “we are really excited to discipline black students,” is outright insulting to the incredible energies put in by Madison educators to reach out to black students. The indignation of School Board members regarding disproportionate suspension statistics is laughable because the Board is responsible for the district’s leadership. …
The disciplinary approaches that Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham championed have led to staff being afraid to provide accountability, so disruptive students have been placated, learning that they can do as they please, even to the point of destructiveness. (More here.)
Blaska’s Second Bottom Line: Who is going to be the first brave school board member — or candidate — to admit Cheatham’s $5.2 million/year Behavior Education Plan is an abject failure?
