Washington Post Mocks Parents for Wanting Transparency in School Curricula

“I am very tired. I almost want to vomit when I hear the word redaction”

The Washington Post recently mocked parents for wanting to know what their children are being taught in schools. It’s fascinating that they used a TikTok video to do it, as the nation is debating the idea of banning TikTok across the board.

FOX News reports:

Washington Post mocks parents requesting transparency on gender identity curriculum: ‘I want to vomit’

The Washington Post – whose slogan is “Democracy Dies in Darkness” – mocked parents for requesting public records on what their children are learning on topics relating to gender identity and race Wednesday in a social media post on its TikTok page.

The paper’s associate TikTok producer Chris Vazquez said, “Resources are being shifted away from students academic needs at the exact instant America is facing falling test scores, a teen mental health crisis and a teacher shortage. And because of how much time and money is needed to process these requests, they’re changing what schools are spending their funding on.”

He then proceeded to mock a parent’s complaints about information being left out of the public record requests relating to “race, gender and sexual orientation.”

“I am very tired. I almost want to vomit when I hear the word redaction,” he said.

The video is so pathetic:

This is the paper that exposed Watergate?

There’s an easy way to reduce the costs – take the web resources that already exist within the budget and post everything parents are asking for and legally entitled to have right there in a searchable data base. Every textbook utilized crosreferenced with the schools using them, every library catalogue, every course syllabus, and every tool used by teachers to post assignments and homework.

    In my experience, hospitals and public school districts are where the dregs of the IT industry end up. There’s also zero financial incentive by public school districts to make their IT operations efficient; the department is often the victim of trendy political initiatives and bribes by tech companies to use their hardware.

    And all that assumes that public school districts aren’t engaged in active campaigns to conceal what they’re inflicting on students from the parents. Which they are.

    What I’d like to see is a state governor or whomever set a reasonable deadline for making all this information available online if the school was a private regulated business (like a bank or insurance company) and just fire the principal or top administrator if they miss the deadline by even five minutes. Replace them, set a new shorter deadline, and keep firing people until they take it seriously.

    Oh, and blacklist the fired administrators from working in any public school anywhere in the state.

    Waaaiiit a minute….are you saying that public schools should actually be, like, PUBLIC?!? I’m not sure how, but I just know that that idea is racist, sexist, homophobic, and encourages violence against marginalized teach–ahem–minorities.

Curricula. Not curriculums.


It’s time to disaggregate public schools. Start over. Little would be lost, much gained.

We have to put these weasels back on the street, and there are so many of them, it needs to be bottom-up rebuilding of the school system starting from zero.

If you don’t want to spend money on lawyers and public records fees, make what the parents have a right to know public to begin with.

As we learned from Nicole Solas:

In April, the principal of the elementary school told Solas to file records requests after the mother emailed the principal asking for a copy of the curriculum and other information about the school district.

Solas was told that due to the breadth of her questions, she needed to file records requests, which she did.

In June, the South Kingstown school board threatened to sue Solas over the [volume of] requests she was making.

Seriously, people this stupid are teaching our kids?

“They’re concerned about what public schools are teaching about race, gender, and sexual orientation. Resources are being shifted away from students’ academic needs at the exact instant America is facing filing test scores, a teen mental health crisis, and a teacher shortage.”

Because the shit you’re teaching about race, gender and sexual orientation ISN’T any part of “student academic needs,” is EXACERBATING the teen mental health crisis and failing test scores, and is what you were wasting all that money on BEFORE having to respond to any records requests.

Don’t try to act like the mental health crisis and the failing test scores weren’t the precise result of letting you teach whatever the hell garbage you wanted up until now. Progressives may buy all that non sequitur feelz bullshit, but we don’t.

    “Resources are being shifted away from students academic needs at the exact instant America is facing falling test scores, a teen mental health crisis and a teacher shortage.”

    The left’s definition of “student needs” is precisely what is causing falling test scores. Wasting resources on teaching psychobabble instead of the basics can do that.

    Think of the money that is squandered on the bloated salaries of “diversity” officers.

    Teacher shortage? Not that I’ve noticed. Maybe in the Democrat inner city utopias, but not suburbia.

I do not understand why anyone would have anything to do with these schools. (Or with the Washington Post.)

Just walk away.

There are so many better options.

You wouldn’t accept an invitation for your child to sleep over at Michael Jackson’s house, would you?


Vote with your pocketbook. It’s the only message these woke schools seem to understand.

That video was completely lame.

I think the young lad needs to “go on a few” dates if you catch my drift.

    The Washington Post has become unreadable. It’s no wonder that they are trying to use Tik Tok to attract new subscribers.
