A study from the Pacific Research Institute sheds light on the efforts of liberal public-school teachers to indoctrinate students with an anti-Trump and leftist agenda, including sexualization of students, violent bullying, and religious bias.
This shocking information has just been published in a new book, titled, The Corrupt Classroom, by Lance Izumi, who says that parents have a right to be concerned. “Political bias is becoming systemic in public school systems and has turned many public schools into indoctrination centers for progressive ideologies and causes,” warns Izumi.
The United Educators of San Francisco, for example, distributed an anti-Trump lesson plan to all its 6,000 members. Trump was labeled a “racist and sexist man” in the curriculum, which included reports from left-wing sources, such as Mother Jones. Teachers were instructed to tell students, “We will keep fighting,” and, “We must and will fight for justice against an unjust system and an unjust people.”
In another example, Berkeley, California, middle-school teacher Yvette Felarca is the leader of By Any Means Necessary, which is known to be a militant, radical group that uses violence to spread its message. Back in April, Felarca attacked a Trump supporter during a rally, punching him in the stomach several times. Her violent actions sparked a brawl that resulted in seven people being stabbed. Felarca told the Mercury News that the First Amendment should not protect what she labels as ‘”hate speech.”
Parents of Felarca’s students were outraged and complained that her violent message should not have a place in the classroom, said Izumi.
The author goes on to cite many more examples of how students have been subjected to indoctrination in the classroom, including some who were asked to complete assignments with an anti-Trump bent or teachers who were very open about their liberal beliefs—including one who yelled, “Die!” in front of students at a photo of President Trump.
School-related crime is another issue which Izumi confronts in his book. He writes, “There have been many instances of appalling crimes on school campuses, ranging from peer-to-peer bullying to classroom sexual assaults that make every parent shudder with fear for the safety of their own children.”
In one of his examples, a 9-year-old girl in Alabama was attacked by a bully at school and suffered a concussion, a bruised face, and two black eyes. School officials lied about how the girl was injured and later told the child’s mother that the bully was suspended, which was another lie.
Religious biases are another reason for parents to be concerned.
“Just as parents do not like teachers and school officials to favor one political candidate over another, so parents oppose the promotion of one religious faith over another,” Izumi says. “Yet, in public schools across America, teaching, curricula, and policies seem intended to disfavor Christianity and favor other religious faiths.”
And then there’s the growing problem of sexualization being taught in the classroom. Izumi points to a school in Fremont, Calif., that distributed a textbook for ninth-graders to teach them about vibrators, oral sex, bondage, female sterilization procedures, and sexual techniques that went beyond the activities that cause birth.
“Not surprisingly, the textbook ignited outrage among parents in the school district, despite the socially liberal reputation of the San Francisco Bay Area,” Izumi says, noting that hundreds of people signed a petition to urge the Fremont school board to stop using the explicit curriculum.
Izumi further notes that parents should consider finding an alternative education to American public schools.
“A public school might have decent test scores, but if parents feel their children are being politically indoctrinated, are at risk of being victimized by other students or teachers, are being shortchanged because of mismanagement by school officials, or are having their basic value system overturned, then parents and their children should have the right and the tools to exit the public school system for educational alternatives that better meet their needs and preferences,” he says.
