The AFT had a “Racial Equity Task Force” gathering in St. Louis, Missouri this past August. In this gathering they decided “To shift schools away from suspensions for unruly or dangerous students and instead use ‘restorative justice’ and other means to keep them in schools despite their bad behavior.” They believed this idea would save black male students from themselves.
What is “Restorative Justice” you ask? “Restorative justice” is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused or revealed by criminal behavior. It is best accomplished through cooperative processes that include all stakeholders.” Basically what this means is you waste school time to require the student with the bad behavior to have another opportunity to encounter the victim(s). Keep in mind this all is a theory, which means to the liberal in is scientific fact.
The best part of this whole gathering was the AFT was enlightening the world to the fact it was “White Privilege” to blame for failing black and Hispanic students. AFT President Rhonda Weingarten said, “Those of us that are white, we have to internalize and understand our own racism.” In other words, we white folk are naturally racists, own up to it, and let minorities do whatever they want; because we owe it to them.
Even better, the AFT does “racial-sensitivity training of teachers as part of professional teacher training workshops, reprogramming them to think that THEY are the problem, not the misbehaving kids, that their ‘whiteness’ and ‘cultural insensitivity’ is the reason African-American students tend to be, on average, more disruptive and violent than other students and tend to underperform academically.”
And I thought the National Education Association (NEA) was anti-American. These guys take the cake; however, it is not a surprise. As I disclosed in my book “Public Schools – The Worst Case of Child Abuse in American History,” we were told “If a student hits you, spits on you or slaps you it is your fault. Yes this was told to over 1100 teachers in a Las Vegas teacher conference by Dr. Hartwig.
This all goes back to personal responsibility; the liberals do not want it, they would much rather have all the minorities be indebted to them. Then they will all vote for them, do what is asked of them and eventually when the minorities and gullible, foolish guilt ridden white people are the majority America will no longer be America. Liberals will be in charge and socialism will have prevailed.
I implore you all to see that this is the desire for the liberals, to use the public education system to teach everything except the basics. To excuse all bad behavior and allow disruptions to the point the schools will only teach social issues. Subjects such as reading, writing, math, history will not even be secondary subjects.
White people are becoming the problem; however it is only those white people who continue to be reprogrammed into believing they are racist when they are not. As long as we continue to allow racism as an excuse, minorities will continue to use it and never be able to succeed. Most individuals when you give them a reason to fail, they will fail; on the contrary when you give them the resources and no excuses, most individuals will succeed.
Remember, if they can reprogram teachers; how tough will it be for those teachers to reprogram their students.
