School Principals in Minnesota Sign ‘De-Centering Whiteness’ Pledge

School Principals in Minnesota Sign ‘De-Centering Whiteness’ Pledge

“dismantling the practices that reinforce White academic superiority”

Progressives can see the anger that these policies are causing around the country. They just don’t care.

FOX News reports:

Minnesota principals sign ‘de-centering Whiteness’ pledge, suggest unions, PTAs help White supremacy

A group of 162 principals and assistant principals at Minnesota schools has invoked the late civil rights icon and former Georgia congressman John Lewis to push their goal of “de-centering Whiteness” in education.

The “Good Trouble Principals” describe themselves as “a loose collection of local principals bound together by a commitment to changing our nation’s future by engaging in better, more equitable education practices.”

“John Lewis said: ‘Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble,’” the letter reads. “The undersigned principals declare publicly today that we are making some noise and getting in good trouble.”

The letter states that the principals intend to do that by “de-centering Whiteness” and “dismantling the practices that reinforce White academic superiority” – which allegedly include standardized testing and “an Americanized version of a caste system in our schools.”

Mauri Melander Friestleben, a member of the group, said its concrete goals include “increasing varieties of student and school evaluations that go beyond the annual standardized testing process.”

How many of the signatories are women with hyphenated names and DEd degrees?

Are the students going to be learning anything in the meantime?

These people have made it clear that they value virtue-signaling over educating children. Next thing they’ll do will be to follow Oregon’s example, and trash any graduation requirements.

It’s more important to them that students learn to spot microaggressions and develop a sense of self-loathing rather than learn to read, write, and do simple arithmetic.

You can always tell a Minnesotan you just can’t tell him much.

There aren’t many reasons left to stay there and put up with those winters.

If those principals want to get into “good trouble”, surely they would expect to pay an actual price for their beliefs, like getting fired.

Minnesota has gone so far left that it fell into another dimension. Even the Twilight Zone is not as woke.

The otherwise unemployable destroying innocent children’s souls.
