Here’s a ‘radical’ idea... why don’t you teach your g-ddamned subject?! Seriously, I’d rather my kids learn English, math and the basic sciences.

I don’t really appreciate activist teachers taking time away from teaching students the necessary skills to succeed in a highly competitive marketplace in order to PREACH A DEAD AND DISCREDITED SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY.

You Marxist ‘educators’ should be fired, kicked out on the street, and forced to do something PRODUCTIVE for a living.

Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Gaia-ism, are all religions

why are these religions being taught in public schools?

It would be theoretically possible to separate “unionism” from Marxism, but not practically so, because Marxism is inherently about destroying capital holders and promoting collective labor, making labor unions the natural power structures for advancing Marxism.

Let me tell you a true story. I was 16 when I met my first union steward (UFCW). She felt me out over a few conversations during breaks and lunches. Then, she invited me to a communist party meeting.

Promoting union membership is nowhere near promoting Marxism.

How are they different? Unions promote themselves as being "for the worker" yet only the union leaders benefit and all the rest of society suffers. The same is true of Communism.

Unions promote an 'Us against them" attitude between management and labor. So do the Communists. They just call it the Proletariat vs the Bourgeoisie.

Unions demand that others provide them with insurance and retirement. So do Socialists and Communists.

The Unions were early vehicles used by the Communists to foment class warfare. The Communist Manifesto predicts that the masses will rise up against the ruling party and the Bourgeoisie. When the masses didn't rise up, nor do they now, the Communists agitate on their supposed behalf and create turmoil. Many of those activist are union leaders.

Yes, unions are part of the Communist movement.

When I was in junion high we had a union representative speak to our class. I don’t remember what he said, but I do remember it was kind of scary.

in the video

t-shirt stating “tax the rich”

useful idiot saying” ecconomic justice”

and went into teaching to alter the ecconomic priorities of the country.

imagine if these communists were caught in the 1950’s trying to pull this commie indoctrination.

You can see the one teachers name around time of 56 seconds into the video.

there is no way she should be a teacher ANYWHERE in the USA.

I've come to the conclusion that the weak link in our educational system is the teacher. That's not to let the bureaucrats off the hook because they are a near complete failure also however the teachers are the ones with face to face interaction with the students. Time to scrap the whole system and cut out out the useless, failing and counter productive links. Go to an all virtual education system that students can log onto for lessons that have been approved by parents, not so called teachers and bureaucrats. The technology is already available today and instructions will be limited to course lessons absent all the indoctrination included today. Not only a better product but also cheaper and more efficient. Time to end the madness of todays ‘education’ model

First, both can’t even teach. There presentation is piss poor at best. Makes me think to the old cliche “There are those that do and those that teach”.

Second, the first commie teacher looks like a pervert to me. Her shirt, if you read it, leads to her breast. It’s quite obvious she does not have a bra.

Good grief how is that for unprofessional? Now we know why our students are so clueless and our schools are failing compared to the rest of the world. We have communist Goons like these so call teachers instructing future generations to hate America, God and Country.

That’s are wonderful government at work for you.

They've been there for a long time. Marching through our institutions while we slept. Those of us who raised the alarms were accused of tin foil hattery. Or laughed at.

No one's laughing now. Because the price we'll pay to take it all back will be a terrible one. It's a truth that few can countenance.

Funny how they want students to “think for themselves”......as long as those thoughts are the ones that coincide with their Marxist philosophy. Both of these vermin should be fired immediately and then investigated for subversive acts.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Let me tell you a true story.

During WW II Unions were organizing in the lead and zinc mines in my area, my mother became an FBI informant at that time, many of our friends and neighbors fell into the marxist trap. The union organizer was appropriately named "Red" Haines, however he did have red hair.

This was most definitely FDR voters and most of my childhood friends, at least the few that aren't dead, still bow to FDR.

Promoting union membership is nowhere near promoting Marxism.

A few years ago I went on the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) website. I believe they now call themselves Socialists of America. They were (and I think still are) the largest socialist/communist organization in America.

They had page after page after page of listings of their membership. Among all the socialist/communist organizations listed were dozens of unions in America (called the Union Ring) who were supporters and members of the Democratic Socialists of America.
