“Remember that public school is the government which cannot compel speech, invade privacy, violate your religion, or discriminate.”
We all know brave Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas for being loud about wokeness and Critical Race Theory in schools.
Solas is back for the new school year, thank goodness! At The Daily Caller, Solas gave parents tips on how to protect children from the wokeness teachers might weave into supposed harmless activities during the first days of school:
Lesson plans about “social identity,” which may be called Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Critical Race Theory, cultural competency, or other names, obliterate the personal boundaries of children in order to break down kids emotionally and build them back up as social justice activists. The process involves forging emotional bonds to influence children to become political proteges of the teachers and peers that emotionally manipulated them.
Classes may commence with “get to know you” questions and exercises about kids’ gender, culture and identity so that kids can “share their stories” to “feel safer” and “build trust” on the very shaky premise that culture, gender and identities inform learning styles. But children should not have to talk about their gender or “share their stories” just to learn algebra.
Solas gives parents pointers along with some handy forms to fight the wokeness:
To combat this, teach your child that his personal information is private and he is not allowed to share it in formal instruction at school. If asked about his identity, instruct your child to give one response, “I feel unsafe talking about that.” Also, any survey with invasive questions given without parental consent is a violation of the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) and you should file a complaint here.
Talk to your child about his identity before government employees do. View the SEL program at school to understand the anti-parent rhetoric you must counter at home. These programs are not compatible with religions that believe the most important identity comes from God and is greater than any immutable characteristic. Talk to teachers about your religion to preempt problems in the classroom.
If you feel that your school is attempting to indoctrinate your child about his social identity, you are not alone. And you have options.
You can invoke opt-out laws if they exist in your state, report your concern to the school board, or contact a public interest legal group for free legal advice. Remember that public school is the government which cannot compel speech, invade privacy, violate your religion, or discriminate. Legal action is the only effective way to stop school indoctrination.
