Ms. Allaire asks the question: “Where will these children be educated?”
Apparently, she is not aware of, or is not concerned that the California Teachers Association has officially endorsed curriculums that support many positions that are considered unsuitable to be indoctrinating children with.
Examples are many, but the list is not exhaustive. Things like Open Borders, LGBT-influenced positions on sex education for minor children, revisionist history on the history of Americas’ founding and its founding fathers, Critical Race Theory, Black Lives Matter and COVID and climate change hysteria.
She cites a lot of COVID-19 data from the CDC. Almost anybody who is tuned to almost any news, but especially MSNBC and or CNN, can document gross inconsistencies in public data regarding COVID.
The news media simply doesn’t play it straight on COVID data. I believe it is time to ditch the bloated public school system in favor of private education and homeschooling. We should be entitled to educate our children in the values we deem appropriate.
If you have children and you’re of the persuasion of Ms. Allaire, then you can pay for that education, but if you are part of a substantial amount of people in the U.S. that see the public education curriculum as dangerous to your deeply held values, you should have the freedom to educate your children in a way more congruent with your values.
