Teachers Openly Fret That Parents Might Hear Them Brainwashing Children, Call Parents ‘Dangerous’

In one of the creepiest yet most revealing Twitter threads ever to be posted on the platform, a teacher recently fretted out loud that virtual classes might allow parents to hear him brainwashing their kids. Matthew R. Kay, an educator and author of a book on “how to lead meaningful race conversations in the classroom,” worried that “conservative parents” would be able to interfere with the “messy work” of indoctrinating children into critical race theory, gender theory, and other left-wing dogmas.

    I think if teachers dont want to give live education, they should be laid off and the cities should return the property tax money to the parents so that they can arrange alternate schooling

      Now you are threatening the cornerstone of the entire corrupt system. The unions! You might as well try to hold back the tides......Just kidding, a truly educated population can rein in the vast corruption that is built into the system. Unions support and fund politicians who then turn around and promote through laws and tax levies the corrupt unions. It is a vicious cycle that has been allowed to fester for years now. Teachers that want to do the right thing are stepped on their corrupt union leaders. It is a sick and getting sicker system!

        I think the whole idea of tax supported mandated public education should be scrapped. The responsibility for learning should be put on the shoulders of the parents early on, and then on the students themselves. I think the whole idea of "teaching" is flawed- it should be thought of as "learning", and that should be up to the child as much as possible.

        Right now there happens to be a way to break the unions. The reason they are so powerful is that they have consistently managed to thwart the laws that prevent them from deducting union dues from a persons paycheck without their permission.

        It so happens that the vast majority of voters disagree with the union stance on this matter, but the unions have so much money to spend on electing their flunkies to office that they have been able to flaunt the Right to Work laws successfully for years.

        The National Right to Work Committee, righttoworkcommittee.org , has been successful in the past in forcing the unions to obey the law. This year the opportunity to beat the unions happens to be very favorable, and I am hoping that people who can afford it will donate to this group to put an end to the union's taking money from workers without their permission.

        This issue doesn't affect me directly, since I am retired, but I still donate $10 a month to the cause, since I cannot stand still while this kind of injustice is allowed to prevail.

      Amen. I don't pay people to sit around complaining rather than doing their jobs. If you aren't teaching my kids, no taxpayer funds for you!

        I happen to think that the idea of "teaching" is flawed. It should be concentrated on "learning", which is an individual thing. Kids are hungry to learn the things that interest them, and we should encourage that.

          I think one of the most valuable lessons one can learn is how to push past not liking something and doing it anyway because it needs to be done. Most of like isn't doing things we want to do, but doing things that have to be done so that life goes on. Sure, kids should have some time every day to study something they like, but it shouldn't be at the expense of the other things they need to know like civics, basic economics, the principle of compound interest, proper reading, writing, and speaking, geography, etc.

          I have found that the reason most kids don't like certain topics is far less about the kid than it is about the way in which the material is presented. That is predominantly a "teaching" function where the good teachers are those who engage the kids and help them learn the material in a way which works for that child. I think one of the flaws in current public schools is a failure to separate kids out according to how they learn and teaching them commensurately. While I think its valuable to have kids of the same ages learning together (because they are also learning social cues, etc.) I would love to see them separated based on their learning styles for maximum effectiveness.

            It should be about learning, NOT rammng info down the throats of kids. They are naturally curious and will learn what they think will benefit them. Thats what we do as adults, why not encourage that as kids.

            In high school I had to take latin and french and americal history and english literature. Basically worthless information in my life as it turned out 50 years later. I was bored silly in public high school. Had to go to classes or get in various kinds of trouble from government and/or parents. I wasted years of that stuff. I learned more useful stuff from working in my own basement shop and visiting the neighbor across the street.

              "It should be about learning, NOT rammng info down the throats of kids."

              I don't disagree. It should be about learning.

              "why not encourage that as kids(?)"

              A little thing called maturity and responsibility - neither of which are present in the vast majority of under-20-year-olds.

              A large part of maturing is coming to realize that there is a lot more to life than just instant gratification. IMHO, a large part of what is so wrong with the millennial generation is that they have been allowed to only choose the things they like. Very few have actually had to do anything of significant difficulty. Many millennials can't even look off in the distance long enough to see that mountain in the distance to climb. As a result, many are petulant whiners with unrealistic expectations that everyone else should cater to their whims. Very few are willing to go out and do the hard work necessary to succeed on their own merits. They don't realize just how much they have bought into the "you didn't build that" of Barack Obama.

              It isn't the destination that makes the journey memorable, but the struggles along the way. No one celebrates someone who drives 26.2 miles to the end of a marathon.

                Isnt that a fault with how the kid is raised when very young? I bet a kid who grew up on a farm for example isnt saddled with this nonsense.

                  I think that the US is down to around 3.5% of the population who work in agriculture. There's certainly correlation there that I would agree with. Even back in the late 1700's and early 1800's, the rabble rousers at universities didn't grow up on farms, but had rich parents...

                  The more pending question, however, is what do you do about it? That percentage isn't likely to increase - ever. So what substitutes are there? Personally, I think that the destruction of the Boy Scouts of America was one of the worst things to happen to youth. There was a program designed to teach leadership and skill through hard work, persistence, and failure. (If you've ever taken youth camping, that is a singular experience in letting young people fail and then make the best of things.)

    We have known this brainwashing has been going on for years starting back in the mid to late 1960's. Now however, it has reached epidemic proportions that is probably far more dangerous than COVID 19 ever was or will be.

    It is time that these left-wing looney educrats be denied the "cover of darkness" they have been operating under. They (wittingly or unwittingly) have taken the teachings of the Communist Antonio Gramsci, Joe Stalin, the Fabian socialists including Dewey and Saul Allinsky to heart).

    This cabal from many school Superintendents, Principals, and rank and file teachers have been spreading misinformation and out and out propaganda for several generations now. It is time to hold them and their corrupt system accountable!

    Creeps and subversives have no place controlling what our kids are supposedly learning. Hitler and Stalin could not have done a better job of co-opting our once great country! Truth be told!

    Arrogance cases them to lower their guard on social media. The fact that they are worried is also the fact that those who know the truth of Critical Race Theory (Marxism) also know that it never has or will work as stated. The results are always the same: an elite ruling class, empty shelves, and lots of people dying and being killed.

      Understanding Communism and its cynical tenets knows full well that this has little or anything to do with race or social justice. They are just buzz words to fool the uninitiated and/or ignorant with mindless jargon designed to lull the average citizen with platitudes that sound highminded. That is what brainwashing and propaganda are designed to do.

      Unfortunately, In American, it only takes a light rinse in order to convince good people to support stupid and corrupt things. Simple truth!

          Pure Cultural Marxism that divides and ignores reality.
          I wonder it these creatures reared their ugly heads in the last days of Noah just before the 12K year cycle of catastrophe on earth...we are getting close.
          Keep an eye on the magnetic pole movements and the weakening of our magnetic shields...all this plays a role on the Bicameral brain.
          Those of us, Unicameral have some protection and have access to our minds.

            Interestingly, not more than an hour ago my wife and I were discussing events in the car and I remarked it's as if something is driving half the population loony. You may be on to something here, OUC.

              Ben from Suspicious 0bservers has presented studies on how the cosmic rays effect the brain and the body.
              I have observed that it doesn't affect everyone, those that have some form of self control, the mind?, A conscience, morality? are the one's least affected.
              In essence, bicamerals - those with a block pathway to the mind have the roughest time...and they obviously are not aware of it....just like those that put them in that position.

        It is! Their self righteousness is the product of Madison Avenue and MSM brainwashing! They have been convinced that up is down and that good is bad. Hitler knew that if you told the "big lie" enough times, eventually the people would take it as Truth! That is what has happened here in this country. The MSM (all including Fox) have twisted the masses to believe just about anything and that is where we are. The old days we were taught in school (before the system was taken over by the brainwashed fools) how to think, not what to think (at least a lot less than now). There is no such thing as "Critical Thinking" because dissenting ideas are no longer tolerated in these institutions of learning.

        To the contrary, now and type of doctrine that does not follow the Communist/Socialist propaganda is not allowed. Virtue signaling and the idiotic "Cancel" culture are now the "Hitler Brownshirts" masquerading as the educational elite and the supposedly, educated students that couldn't even pass a 1900 8th grade exam to get you into highschool. Truth be told! However they can cite you chapter and verse about just about every pop scientific, crackpot theory. God help us all!

          Amen to all that, fosterj717. I actually have a small collection of 19th century grade school text books in my library and some of the exams in them are tough for me. Side note: Part of the Nazi take over of Germany also included taking over academia.

            I agree with you! The same with the Communist takeover of Russia. After the useful idiots in academia, (Russia primarily) etc. did their thing, they were then rounded up with the rest of the kulats(sp?) and shipped off to the gulags (or worse - 20 to 50mm died during the purges). The same thing may very well happen here for sure and this modern crop of useful idiots haven't a clue! For what its worth!

              I believe the word you're looking for is "Kulak". These were the more wealthy Russian peasants who were farm and small business owners. They didn't do well under Lenin or Stalin. They won't do well here, either, if the Marxists "Democrats" gain full power. The "Gulag Archipelago" (books 1 and 2) give a good description of what we are seeing here now.

    I saw it in action, 20 years ago, after talking with Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center, high school classmate. He told me what I saw was not local, but all over, and all tied to UN Agenda 21, to transform kids' thinking. They needed them to not know academics, to be anti-capitalism, anti-property rights, and basically mush heads. They use Maslow group therapy, which Maslow called dangerous, outside a trained therapists office, to break them down. They feed them false history, throw in values clarification, turn kids against parents (as admitted to me by the lead of the local teachers' union). They come out dumber thand when they went in, and brainwashed. Inttroduce you early teen to "Anthem" and go from there, so thy at least recognize what is happening to them.

    Now is the time to start an online forum for education, and wipe out the over-priced, under-performing, politically-motivated public schools and universities.

    My wife teaches nursing in college, and I see no reason why she really needs more than a few other people to completely serve the needs of her students. I could easily do the same in engineering,

    It is time for open market education!

        I see that. Like those guys. Wish they said "god" a few less times, but they are great, and don't lord the religious crap over students.

        I am doing some of their online lectures, myself.

        Not sure they will take on the online market as aggressively as possible though.

    In the Conservative South, in about 1969, our sixth-grade class got a radical "math teacher" from whom I learned pretty much nothing that fall except how we should support the grape boycott and not eat raisins or grapes. He even wore an arm-band to show his support for the cause. He was very vocal in indoctrinating us in all things even vaguely Socialist. I tired of it pretty quickly and was the only Ham-radio and Electrical-Engineering-oriented sixth grader in the class and brought in my snazzy little battery powered tape recorder a couple of times to record whenever he took off on a political rant. The second time, he realized what I was doing, yelled at me to turn it off, and forbade me to ever bring it into class again. The story would have ended there, except that my best friend, also in the same class, was the son of the county school superintendent, who got to hear the tapes. We got a new math teacher soon after. I suppose in this day and age, I would have been arrested for spying on a teacher, but it was very satisfying at the time. I wasn't even Libertarian yet. It would be years before I read Ringer's "Restoring the American Dream" or any of Rand's works, but I was a logical kid, and knew even at that age that there was something fundamentally unsettling and fundamentally wrong about that cretin's politics.

    I find this scenario very strange indeed. When I went to school the teacher taught the subject material with only a few willing to help students who needed help. In college at least I was able to choose the courses for the most part. Some Prof's made the subject matter enthralling. When my son went to the local school where I still live they just wanted to crank the children out of the system even more so with those with learning problems. That's why when he was in high school I was there once a week insisting more help for him on understanding the material. They really disliked me. If it were now I would probably arrested for harassment. I can't believe those teacher who thinks it's there job to indoctrinate children on societal mores & sexuality.

    Several years ago when my daughter was in Jr high her 'teacher', a twenty something black woman, decided to provide handouts to the class for black history month. At the end of the class she had the students return the handouts, my daughter didn't and I got to see it. Needless to say it was filled with false and inaccurate history (a black inventor was responsible for the lightbulb, the comb was invented by a black person, etc.). I can't recall all of the tripe but I raised hell with the school. Nothing happened to the 'teacher'/activist.
    Ive been involved with this site a long time. 'm sure somewhere on this site there is much more detail about this.

    When my daughter was being physically bullied by a big, fat boy in her class I ended up having a conversation with her principal that was interesting. Her principal is a short, squatty, ugly woman. I voiced my opinion that a male should NEVER place his hands on a female in violence. The principal uncloaked when she actually tried to argue with me about that. It was enlightening, chilling. She actually said I was "threatening". No. I was big and pissed off. But, to the left that's threatening...

    For me real choice in schools is public vs. private. Parents that choose private should be allowed to use the school money on their real estate bill. Private school families are actually saving the public school systems tons of money. Imagine if private schools went away. All these students move into public and there is no additional money because everyone is already paying in. Another option that has gotten some attention with the pandemic is home schooling. The negative connotations for home schooling are quickly going away. Home schooling has organizations and networking that would surprise most people. Especially with a mix of online seminars home schooling is an option for parents who do not want their children in the public system.
