‘We can’t ignore Trump’s bigotry and cruelty’
America’s second-largest teachers union wants to educate its 1.7 million members in how to practice inclusion in the classroom.
Namely, by reminding students at every turn how they are different from others.
The fall issue of the American Federation of Teachers’ quarterly journal, American Educator, is brimming with calls for incorporating leftist ideologies into the classroom. It even cites debunked statistics that paint America as under siege from white supremacists.
The umbrella theme of the issue is “Confronting Bias in Schools: Classroom Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, and Identity,” yet the essay that kicks off the issue almost treats the theme as an afterthought.
AFT President Randi Weingarten focuses on the threat to democracy from President Trump in the opening essay, “A Defining Moment for Democracy,” and portrays teachers as a bulwark against intolerance toward opposing ideas.
