Nicole Solas Tells Parents How to Protect Children From Wokeness in Schools

Nicole Solas Tells Parents How to Protect Children From Wokeness in Schools

“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.

Opt your child out of surveys and submit public records requests for all surveys and CRT/SEL materials. Here is an example request.

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.

Too bad these tips weren’t out there thirty years ago. Or fifty.

    Ridiculous. Why are we living like we are the enemies in the country WE made????

      Because your country has been stolen from you by an administrative state made up of people who “know everything better than you.”

I have great sympathy for Nicole Solas, and I wish her well.

However, the idea that a government school “cannot violate your religion” is demonstrably false. It assumes that education can be religiously neutral. Religion is worldview, and worldview determines what is taught and how it’s taught.

People suffer from nostalgia for the past when there were less worldview conflicts. But even at the beginning of the government schools there was prejudice against Catholics.

The government school system is incapable of being reformed. It represents a single solution for all, decided upon by government bureaucrats.

    Any single solution to issues like this is a guarantee of mediocrity. Leftist programs do nothing positive for anyone. Look at how they have destroyed black families since the 60’s. Loot how they discriminate against Asians in college. Look how they allow the unvetted (especially medically) invasion of our southern border. Correlate that with the exploding fentanyl deaths.

    The left practices guarantee a Darwin level extinction of the U.S..

      Yeah not really. The Catholics like to be martyrs but the truth is prayers in school wasn’t a specific sect based prayer.

        henrybowman in reply to CellarDoor. | August 22, 2022 at 1:43 pm

        What, you think it was the Catholics complaining about the school prayer?
        The Catholics even realigned the end of their Lord’s Prayer to match the Protestant version, just to get along.

How to Protect Children From Wokeness in Schools
Easy. Homeschool them. Get them out of the Progressive indoctrination machine altogether.

People who work in schools are used to dealing with students: an identified underclass, dependent, with incompletely formed minds to boot.

They become annoyed when they deal with people who act like people.
