Libs and their propaganda
25 yrs ago, Ronald Reagan said:“If you serve a child a rotten hamburger in America, federal, state & local agencies will investigate you, summon you, close you down, whatever. But if you provide a child with a rotten education, nothing happens, except that you’re liable to be given MORE money to do it with.” But only until the soaring tuitions and taxes that fund this featherbedding for administrators of political correctness create a critical mass of parental and taxpayer disgust.
No wonder American kids are falling behind the rest of the world—political correctness about racism, reproduction and recycling is more important to the progressives in charge of education than learning to read, write or do math.
* Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction pushes progressivism as “consciousness-raising.”
In collaboration with the federal program VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America; the “volunteers” are paid), DPI urged white students to wear white wristbands “as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.”
A flyer that was on the DPI Web site and distributed at a DPI-VISTA training classes urged whites to “put a note on your mirror or computer screen as a reminder to think about privilege,” to “make a daily list of the ways privilege played out” and to conduct an “internal dialogue” asking questions such as “How do I make myself comfortable with privilege?” and “What am I doing today to undo my privilege?”
* In Delavan-Darien HS’s “American Diversity” curriculum, students were urged to verify white privilege by visiting a Wal-Mart toy section & counting the white & black dolls. After objections, the school district is reconsidering this curriculum.
* Such distractions from the study of calculus and literature are encouraged by CREATE Wisconsin (the acronym stands for Culturally Responsive Education for All: Training and Enhancement), which is funded with federal tax dollars from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The disability being rectified here is, presumably, THE HANDICAP OF INSUFFICIENT GUILT ABOUT WHITE PRIVILEGE.
Today the school systems in 20 states employ more non-teachers than teachers. Between 1950 and 2009, the number of teachers rose 252%, while the number of bureaucrats — including sensitivity enforcers and other non-teachers — increased 702%.
And Americans wonder why their generous K-12 financing has done so little to improve reading, math and science scores.
Higher education, from which much of such diversity and sensitivity nonsense trickles down, cries poverty while spending lavishly on administrative overhead irrelevant to its teaching & research missions.
While UC-San Diego was pruning academics, it created a “vice chancellor for equity, diversity & inclusion” to augment a diversity apparatus that included an assistant vice chancellor for diversity; faculty advisers, staff, graduate & undergraduate diversity coordinators & liaisons; a director of development for diversity initiatives; the Committee on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues; the Diversity Council; the Campus Council on Climate, Culture & Inclusion; and much more.
More propaganda: the Univ of Utah students’ required reading that told students to “list ways your family may have colluded with or benefited from the exploitation of African-Americans.” Another reading was titled “White Privilege — Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.”

Libs/progressives have hijacked our schools since the 60s and the sad results are evident, everywhere. If we want to catch up we start by every administrative position whose title contains the WORDS “diversity,”“equity,”“race,”“e thnicity,”“sustainability,”“gr een,”“gender,”“inclusion,”“ide ntity,”“interconnectivity,”“gl obalization,”“climate,”“campus climate,”“cross-cultural” or “multiculturalism.”
