There are many dynamics that are playing out in our Country today, some of which are very disturbing. All of which can be directly traced back to what the National Government, through its bullying and bribing of State and local school districts, has been forcing on our schools for the last 30+ years. Yes, yes, yes, I can already hear the “Conspiracy Theory” outcry, but it’s no longer a “conspiracy” when the facts are exposed.
As we have been put through the totally unscientific response to COVID-19, I have noticed some very positive results from the “Law of Unintended Consequences”. The biggest one to me is that, for the first time in these same 30+ years, parents were given open access to the manure that the “educators” are shoveling in to our next generation’s minds full of mush. And what we’ve seen isn’t pretty. Or really teaching children much of anything. But now that we are “going back to normal” in most schools this fall, we must not just go back to sleep and let the Educrats continue, their destroying the future of our Country, through the classroom. So, what do we do to change this?
I believe we have to open up the classrooms to EVERY parent who wants to know what is being “taught” to their child(ren). This should include the reconstitution of PTAs/PTOs to their rightful place in the governance of EVERY school, the opening of classrooms up to the old-fashioned idea of “classroom parents”, and probably the most controversial, putting parent accessible cameras in EVERY classroom. I realize that there are some security concerns that must be addressed, but none of those are as important as not allowing the classrooms to return to being the silos of secrecy that they have been for the last 3 decades.
I first started thinking about school cameras when a friend of mine’s child was assaulted and injured by a school employee 2 years ago and she is still looking for resolution. If it had been on camera, it could have been quickly and easily resolved. And as bad as that was, what’s being done in every classroom in this Country today, to the next generation, is much more long-term consequential. I guess we thank the overreaction to COVID-19 for revealing this to parents, who in turn, told We The People? Well, let’s not let this opportunity for correction go to waste.
