Penn State to work with schools to ‘reimagine’ K-12 around ‘anti-racism’ and ‘social justice’
The Pennsylvania State University College of Education has plans to ‘reimagine’ education at the “regional, state, national, and global levels” to ensure that children are sufficiently literate in specific concepts, including “social justice,” and “climate change.”
The college announced it would adopt a new set of hiring practices to “recruit, support and retain faculty and staff from historically underrepresented groups, particularly people of color” as part of the first set of objectives and action items in its five year strategic plan.
The college plans to review existing recruitment and retention policies and implement a policies that will “increase the number and percentage of faculty and staff of color.”
The plan also includes similar changes to policies to improve graduate student recruitment “particularly with respect to students of color.”
“We will engage in intentional practices to develop an inclusive College of Education that derives strength from multiple identities and lived experiences and mirrors the representation of individuals in our society,” said College of Education Dean Kimberly A. Lawless.
These initiatives fall under just one of the many objectives detailed by the PSU College of Education’s Strategic Plan 2021-2025, which outlines the school’s planned efforts to incorporate “social justice” and so-called “anti-racism” into every aspect of education systems.
“We reimagine the existing EC-12 and adult education systems, including the College of Education, by identifying and addressing the systemic inequities that impede many individuals from realizing their full potential,” the school explains in the plan’s mission statement.

Seriously, all that actually needs to be done is that they teach kids how to read, write, do arithmetic, teach history in all it’s ugly glory, teach basic science, and critical thinking (how to think instead of what to think). Make sure kids have the opportunity to eat a decent breakfast, and a hot lunch….that’s it. You get all the social justice education you need studying history. You get all the climate change warnings you need in studying science (organisms existing within an environment inevitably change that environment). And if they know how to evaluate information for content and bias, they won’t be led around by the nose.
Education schools have been pushing “social justice” based on left-wing ideas for decades. This is nothing new.
