Indoctrination for 3rd Graders
An elementary school in Cupertino, California—a Silicon Valley community with a median home price of $2.3 million—recently forced a class of third-graders to deconstruct their racial identities, then rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.”

Based on whistleblower documents and parents familiar with the session, a third-grade teacher at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School began the lesson on “social identities” during a math class. The teacher asked all students to create an “identity map,” listing their race, class, gender, religion, family structure, and other characteristics. The teacher explained that the students live in a “dominant culture” of “white, middle class, cisgender, educated, able-bodied, Christian, English speaker[s],” who, according to the lesson, “created and maintained” this culture in order “to hold power and stay in power.”.................................

The lesson caused an immediate uproar among Meyerholz Elementary parents. “We were shocked,” said one parent, who agreed to speak with me on condition of anonymity. “They were basically teaching racism to my eight-year-old.” This parent, who is Asian-American, rallied a group of a half dozen families to protest the school’s intersectionality curriculum. The group met with the school principal and demanded an end to the racially divisive instruction. After a tense meeting, the administration agreed to suspend the program. (When reached for comment, Jenn Lashier, the principal of Meyerholz Elementary, said that the training was not part of the “formal curricula, but the process of daily learning facilitated by a certified teacher.”).........................................

The irony is that, despite being 94 percent nonwhite, Meyerholz Elementary is one of the most privileged schools in America. The median household income in Cupertino is $172,000, and nearly 80 percent of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher. At the school, where the majority of families are Asian-American, the students have exceptionally high rates of academic achievement and the school consistently ranks in the top 1 percent of all elementary schools statewide. In short, nobody at Meyerholz is oppressed, and the school’s high-achieving parents know that teaching intersectionality instead of math is a waste of time—and potentially dangerous.

One parent told me that critical race theory was reminiscent of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. “[It divides society between] the oppressor and the oppressed, and since these identities are inborn characteristics people cannot change, the only way to change it is via violent revolution,” the parent said. “Growing up in China, I had learned it many times. The outcome is the family will be ripped apart; husband hates wife, children hate parents. I think it is already happening here.”

This is why my daughter will not be going to a liberal indoctrination camp, er, I mean, public school. I want her to learn to read and write, not hate her skin because some liberal told her to.

HOMESCHOOL YOUR KIDS.

It is incredibly important that this next generation not be indoctrinated with this nonsense. Quite possibly the biggest failure in the history of our young country is that we have completely lost the education system to radical leftists.

I am proud to say that my 4 year old can do basic math and can read... and he hasn't even ONCE heard about social justice, climate change, racism, etc. I'm even having nightly conversations with him about history (in simple terms) as I was taught, and as it actually occurred. None of this 1619 Project bull****.

We as parents DO have the ability to protect our kids, and help them to grow up as FREE thinkers, and not as GROUP thinkers... and in my opinion, that includes keeping them OUT of public schools, unless there are RADICAL changes made to how these schools operate.

The big challenge is for parents who don't have sufficient resources to home school or send their children to a private school where they can choose a school in line with their values. When my daughter was 2 I started researching private schools and digging into what they teach. I'll live off Ramen if I have to, but I'll be damned if she comes home from school telling me I'm a white supremacist for not voting for a pedophile and prostitute or that I should feel guilty for my skin.

Glad to read this. You are doing the right stuff with your kids.

Doesn't happen in rural areas or the exurbs.

I'm proud of you. Thanks for having a backbone.

With a largely Asian population there, there is a good chance that many of the families are immigrants, children of immigrants/2nd or 3rd generation Americans who came here, studied, worked hard, and were successful. They didn't come here for this crap. Its probably a great school overall, and most parents probably send their kids there and are mostly happy about things.

But if you wanna get a group hopping made, start this and they'll get involved really quickly. Especially when its something so far removed from them.
