How many times do I have to say it? The institution you trust has already betrayed you.
As a corollary to that, pull your kids out of that school you have them in.
To this point, Larry Correia, who I have ENORMOUS respect for and am a fan of, is finding out. (Hear our show about his EXCELLENT adventure Monster Hunter International.)
Today he posted about the political axe grinding in the English program at his children’s school. It’s a good post.
To demonstrate how nefarious this leftist propaganda masquerading as English education is, one of my son’s friends, (redacted), asked me to take a look at one of his homework assignments that (redacted) gave a zero. He believed his grade was politically motivated. After taking a look, I believe he’s absolutely correct.
The assignment was another of these deconstructionist nonsense things, where the student was expected to force a work into a proper leftist bucket based upon their feelings. They used a short Hemingway story, and (the student) looked at it through feminist lenses to explain why he felt the protagonist was a terrible person.
The gist of the thing is that they are requiring the children to analyze texts using critical theory, which is one of the most disgusting ides to come out of the disgusting 20th century.
Mr. Correia is working hard to fight them.
The rot is deep and wide. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t fight them. LEAVE. We live in occupied territory. This ain’t your country anymore. Get used to it.
Homeschool or build your own damned school.
