They don’t feel safe in Madison’s public high schools.
The progressive BLM project is in trouble right here in the Emerald City — and don’t they know it!
Students are walking out of Madison’s high schools in protest. Not just East high this time but all four major high schools. Hundreds of them, the Wisconsin State Journal reports:
In an effort to draw attention to what they see as inadequate district policies related to sexual harassment and assault and lack of protection for survivors. … “A lot of the students really are not feeling too safe at our school,”
… one of them said. It would be a mistake to conclude that the unrest is limited to one or two incidents of sexual assault. It is deeper and wider, we think. There is a disturbance in the force field. The sexual assaults are catalyst as well as the latest concern.This is a school district and city fully subscribed to critical race theory that teaches perpetrators are victims and that authority figures are oppressors .
Got to shore up the comrades!
The local BLM chapter knows its Defund the Police / Cops Out of Schools project is in trouble. Freedom Inc. is organizing a virtual “police-free schools teach-in for parents” next Tuesday 10-19-21. Oh, not for white parents. “This space is for black parents and parents of color,” organizer Bianca Gomez dictates. Fearing those parents may desire safe schools like all parents, Freedom Inc. is bribing parents with a $50 stipend.
They’re playing the race card on the kids, as well. “Free food and drinks and an outdoor movie at Aldo Leopold Park on Wednesday 10-20-21. “This space is for black youth and youth of color.” Freedom Inc. is following that up with a teach-in for teachers Thursday 10-21-21. No stipends. (This Madison Caucus of Rank & File Educators appears to be a splinter group of MTI demanding even greater “anti-racism” efforts, including a pledge not to call in police, even for in-school fights.)
This school year, only in its second full month, is the first without school resource police officers patrolling the halls. It is the first school year under a Rube Goldberg “school safety policy” (the term demands snotty quotation marks) so complex it would frustrate a PhD laboratory rat. The Werkes exposed that at “School safety plan omits police, rewards analysis paralysis.” The WI State Journal reports:
Students and a number of teachers at East are unaware of the reporting process for incidents regarding sexual harassment or assault … or find the process too burdensome.
Thank you very much Ali Muldrow and the Madison school board, Madison’s progressive alders, Mayor Satya, Progressive Dane, silent Democrats, Capital Times, and Madison Teachers Inc. This is all on you.
“Schooling,” these government-funded social justice warriors proclaim, “is a product of colonization and so is policing.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: So now schooling is as oppressive as police! Where does that leave us, class? Buehler? Buehler?
