Remind me why we support public education again?
At least the Totalitarians are out in the open. The Socialists, Communists, Democratic-Socialists (euphemism for Socialists and Communists) are hiding in plain sight and they are in charge of our children.
They are making public education their base of operations for obvious reasons.
One of their new organizers jobs is to unionize charter schools which would destroy alternative public education and continue the failed public education monopoly, while relegating poor children to the fate of an inferior and radical education.
One of the reasons public education is failing is the unions. As an educator, I see them as self-serving socialists who care nothing about the children schools are not for children in their world, schools are for them. This is something I have been told by many a union leader. The breakdown of our social fiber is no small contributing factor either.
The AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS (AFT) is a national union headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is affiliated with the Socialist, thuggish American Federation of LaborCongress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The AFT joined with the NEA to form an NEAFT Partnership in 2001. AFL-CIO affiliation is optional for them since that was always a sticking point. The AFT and NEA collaboration was charted to strengthen the organizations abilities to buy politicians votes and to negotiate favorable contracts in the twenty-first century.
Hiring radicals at the AFT is nothing new. Albert Shanker, the AFT leader who died in 1997, was an avowed Socialist all his life.
Now the AFT has hired a Socialist, Shaun Richman, who is also a Truther and Osama bin Laden apologist. [Sorry, but I think that he needs psychological help with that mindset.] Shaun Richman, the new deputy director of organizing for the AFT, gained his experience organizing for the Socialist Party USA.
Just because a teachers unions is composed of communists does not mean that they will be teaching communist ideology. These teachers care more about their politics than they do teaching. Any teaching that they do is probably ineffective.
Shaun Richman was the co-chair of the New York Abortion Access Fund 10th Anniversary.
Which is a good thing - better our kids remain uneducated than effectively brainwashed...
These are your kids that you are sending to these MONSTERS.
But I know, the Lexus, the Plasma, the big fancy house to show off to co-workers is more important...
