Public schools teaching 'white privilege' to your kids
wnd.com ^ | 5/28/2014 | Walter Williams

Posted on 05/28/2014 6:00:04 AM PDT by rktman

What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation.

Might as well make "them" aware at an early age that they'll never have to worry about being homeless, car-less, jobless. Apparently the evil Koch brothers pay white people to "appear" to be homeless in order to make minority people "think" they are not alone in their plight. Or something. This "hole" thing is getting more and more ridiculous by the day.

This “white privelege” meme is actually quite comical. And just another reason you need to pull your kids from public schools.

As if any other reasons were really needed.

Public schools are a nineteenth century paradigm that outlived its usefulness in the late 20th century. It serves no real purpose other than to indoctrinate the masses and feed the children of the poor.

Just what I was saying last week, public education is obsolete in today’s world, there is no point in having kids go through that whole rigmarole of public ed when they can be educated more efficiently in other ways. For example utilizing sites like Khan academy...This is your whole public education system on one website, and they found out kids learn faster and more efficiently when they use it, yet the press does everything it can to bury it....I’ll bet half the Freepers here never even heard of it...

White people should boycott public education and private schools that employ these hateful racists. Let them find other jobs that do not pollute the minds of our children with hate for the way God made them.

Yup. I remember “giving” my car away before moving west. Once we got here, a generous Dodge dealer in town “gave” me a brand new Hemi Ram for absolutely nothing. Free oil changes and service. Then some folks “gave” us a house. We don’t pay for any utilities or groceries or even gasoline. What a deal.

I would consider where you live...and if you would be sending your kids to “city” schools or “suburban” schools or “rural” schools.

There are private schools, which are much better than even the best public suburban schools, but they aren’t cheap.

I think you’re wrong about the public schools.

The problem with them is that WE have surrendered them to the communists. WE should take them back, from the states and Feds.

Demand that tenure be removed.
Decertify the unions.

Start setting the curriculum locally. Return them to teaching the things that matter to US not what their silly common core standards are.

Refuse the state aid, and federal aid, and thus refuse their testing, their standards, and enforce real discipline.

To simply remove your kids only makes it easier for them to destroy other peoples kids, and turn THEM into democRATS.

I prefer to choose my battles. Public schools are unnecessary. I would very much prefer to home-school my children. It brings the family much closer together and also enhances the children’s social skills and feelings of self worth.

And with the MIT online courses and Khanacademy.org., public schools really are a relic, even if teaching the way we want them to. Even if teaching the way we want them to, they serve no purpose other than to feed the children of the poor and give us free daycare. I don’t want my children raised by someone else.

Ah, public schools.

The windows vista of education.

The GM of education.

Why, oh why, does anyone who even begins to love their children subject them to that collection O’clowns?

Remember, even folks with low standards such as the Obamas and the majority of dim-bulb-crat congresscritters send their children to REAL schools - not that pile of politically correct collective cr*p known as a public school.

I don’t disagree with your choice for homeschooling. But in the same vein, not everyone can afford to home school, and we must stop them from indoctrinating and making more democRATS. We must stop spending OUR tax dollars on salaries that then pay union dues that in turn go to support democRATS. Closing the public schools isn’t going to happen, and privatizing them isn’t likely either.

Home schooling can be done for free. I actually know a family that is dirt poor and very effectively home schools their three kids who are now 15, 17 and 19.

And this was BEFORE the likes of khanacademy.

Actually, I’m in a band with this family (I’m the bass player). I see them weekly. They live in a house with bare floors and 1/4” gaps in the floorboards so that the cool air from the basement can be the summertime air conditioner. The band is actually part of their home schooling, but we got so good we are actually in demand in this area.

The way to close public schools is to stop participating.

Homeschool.
And if your first response is “we/I can’t do that”,
figure out a way. Otherwise you’re giving your kids to Satan’s minions for discipleship, and that’s NOT hyperbole.

At this point, "fighting the power" is merely pissing into the wind. People who are abandoning public schools are attempting a flanking maneuver rather than a headlong assault against overwhelming odds. All we can hope for now are little harassing guerrilla victories. The war is lost.

I guess the many successful and educated Asian Americans around the country didn’t get the memo about the problem of “white privilege” in our society. What a load of crap. Just another superficial way that white liberals make themselves appear sympathetic to minorities, and what a shock the meeting is held in Madison, Wisconsin.

“white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”

I'd say, "We're White. What's the problem?"

"White privilege" is being cast as some kind of "insider" thing. Where we grant each other exceptions to the rules and special favors.

This is patently bullsh*t.

What we do have is a Culture of hard work, established means of ethically generating wealth under Capitalism, and a philosophy of Individual Rights and Responsibilities.

This ethos is "color blind", unless you are some Socialist dirtbag who would rather engender a sense of entitlement and inequality to try and avoid the hard work necessary to "get ahead" in such a system.

Let's start calling them what they are rather than letting them dictate the terms of the debate.

I would say that is what losers tell themselves to make themselves feel better about being losers, instead of working hard to become winners.

Liberals have taken over the entire education system and brainwash the nation's children.

The conservative response is to write some columns, pray, and have a bake sale.

Liberals will continue to win until we start to attack and destroy them, one at a time if necessary.

I am in ct, the schools are supposedly ranked well. I am moving to Iowa in the coming months. I have other reasons to home school. When I think about my high school days, there was a lot of wasted time. There was gym an hour a day, lunch an hour a day, and then 1 or 2 junk electives such as home education. I would surmise that I had only 2 hours of real lectures on a given day. I think I can do better and let my kids fully pursue constructive hobbies (wood working, blacksmith, piano, culinary arts, whatever) with the extra time that a public school would waste.

Without all the bureaucratic nonsense involved with a classroom of 30 kids, shuffling from classroom to classroom, you can get a full academic day in in about 3 hours, easily.
Then they can work on their chosen “electives”.

Yes they all are public schools, but in any city the schools are invariably violent holding centers for futures in the criminal justice system. There isn’t any actual learning that goes on there, besides how to be a leech or criminal.

The rural schools do a better job of actually educating the kids for lives in the service industries of convenience stores, fast food enterprises, and very little by way of productive skills useful in more remunerative enterprises.

The suburban schools are pipelines to the colleges, which again do little in the way of actual learning outside of the hard sciences. Those who do graduate from suburban schools and don’t go to college are not very well prepared for much of anything as their “education” is incomplete.

I believe that WE should expurgate the communists/unions from the schools and have them begin to turn out citizens instead of parasites and grievance holders. They should be factories turning out republicans, and conservatives. To just abandon them IMHO is just plain wrong. My parents were the depression era children, and they were public school educated even as non-college people they were well educated.

The public schools have value, the question is whether we want them to produce more of us, or more democRATS. Because right now....they don’t make both, they only make democRATS.
