Do you know what your kids are learning at school?

When confronted with the question about why students are siding with terrorists, from Hamas to Osama Bin Laden, we should examine the steps taken to get here.
  • Activists painted a picture of an irredeemably racist country that needed to urgently confront racism. (Kendi, teacher unions, DiAngelo, BLM at School, etc.)
  • They demanded legislation to require training, curriculum, etc. that would address racism, bigotry, cisheterpatriarchy, settler-colonialism, and the like. (California’s AB-101, mandatory DEI training, etc.)
  • The same activists made their way into school districts and academia. (UC Ethnic Studies Faculty Council, Coalition for Liberated Ethnic Studies, XITO)
And here we are. XITO, a radical group of “scholar-activists” are providing teacher training and curriculum development in school districts right now. They promote groups like Teaching While Muslim, who push radical curriculum and classroom resources, like this one, white-washing the Sept 11th attacks and centers Muslims over all of the victims of the terrorist attack.
So, we really should not be surprised that kids are now going onto TikTok and believing that “Osama Bin Laden was right” or that terrorism is justified. It’s time to take back our schools from activists and make sure that our kids are getting the scholarship they deserve.
