At one time, not too long ago, schools had a consensus from the public and parents to teach basic skills in Reading, Writing, Math, etc. They’ve lost it because of Leftist Progressive social theories. Why would a teacher even breathe LGBTetc. or CRT concepts to a classroom of kids KNOWING it is controversial and will cause trouble? When teachers and their unions went political, the end of consensus began. If you’ve ever tried to approach a calf with its mother watching you, you’d know how dangerous it is to mess with parents’ children.
The idea of a free and public education is almost sacramental in America. The idea of using it to indoctrinate children to a controversial political doctrine is repugnant – and dangerous. Left-wing progressives sowed the wind and are now reaping the whirlwind. I sincerely hope we still have public schools left when the wind finally stops.
