WASHINGTON, DC – Part of the Biden Department of Education’s plan for reopening schools after the COVID-19 pandemic called for the disruption of whiteness. In the Education COVID-19 Handbook published for educators by the Department of Education, the agency recommended teachers read up on the “Guide for Racial Justice & Abolitionist Social and Emotional Learning”.
“Abolitionist Teaching promotes justice, healing, joy, and liberation for all Black, Brown, and Indigenous folx, inclusive of all intersecting identities,” Fox New reported today. “[r]emove all punitive or disciplinary practices that spirit murder Black, Brown, and Indigenous children” and to “[b]uild a school culture that engages in healing and advocacy.”
“This requires a commitment to learning from students, families, and educators who disrupt Whiteness and other forms of oppression,” it also says.
Now, Biden officials are saying it was a mistake, an honest mistake.
“The Department does not endorse the recommendations of this group, nor do they reflect our policy positions,” the Department of Education said in a statement. “It was an error in a lengthy document to include this citation.”
But, was it an honest mistake? Earlier this year, in New Jersey, the teacher’s union, which also has the full attention of the Biden Administration put out a summer reading list for its educators that included a full plate of wokeness and radical racial ramblings.
It also hosted a seminar featuring a supporter of convicted black panthers who shot and killed a New Jersey cop.
The NJEA, New Jersey’s largest public teachers union has published their summer reading list for their members statewide. You can forget about curling up to a good classic novel like Catcher in the Rye and The Great Gatsby. Instead, if you’re a teacher in New Jersey, the NJEA wants you to continue exploring your inner wokeness.
The union has come under fire this week after allowing an associate of a convicted New Jersey cop killer to speak at a recent seminar.
“Following a year of reinventing ourselves as educators, summer vacation lies just beyond the horizon. The proverbial “sit back and relax” seems more important than ever. For some of us, that includes exploring new ideas through the written word. If that is you, we offer our annual tradition of recommendations for summer reading from the staff on the Professional Development and Instructional Issues Division,” the NJEA said.
As for the NEA racially dividing propaganda making its way into a Department of Education guidebook for teachers, we think Jen Psaki and Joe Biden need to get the social media misinformation police on that.
