YOU SHOULD BE PLEASED BY THIS IF YOU HAVE A DAUGHTER: State now requires schools to honor biological sex rather than gender identity
DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS. Oh, and don’t forget to #JustWalkAway: “City Department of Education is trying to hide the true drop in public-school enrollment.”
AH, NOW WE’RE GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER. Do you mean to say that DEI and CRT are more than just about being nice and fair to everyone? Do you mean to say that they are part of a larger philosophic-political movement that seeks to overturn Western Civilization? Also, curious to know how “individualism” and “objectivity” are a white thing? Sounds pretty racist to me Equity summit: Individualism, objectivity rooted in white supremacy
Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee held a recent equity summit that included a governor-appointed state education agency telling other state agencies that concepts like "objectivity" and "individualism" are rooted in "White supremacy culture" and should be rejected in favor of "indigenous relational pedagogy." . . .
"We don’t break centuries of habit and thinking, unless we decide to break the chains of that history," Inslee said in-person during his opening speech at the summit. "And so that is why we’re here today, to really consciously, intentionally, bring equity and justice toward the way we do business."
THIS IS WHAT AMERICAN POLITICS/EDUCATION HAS COME TO: “Governor Calls On The Texas Association Of School Boards To Remove ‘Pornographic Images And Substance’ From Schools.”

NO INDOCTRINATION HERE—MOVE ALONG: This City’s Elementary Schools Require Gender Identity Lessons
The document contains resources including books such as Who Are You? The Kids’ Guide to Gender Identity, recommended for grades 2 to 5. This is a book that teaches children still young enough to believe in Santa that adults simply guess the sex of a baby and introduces them to terms such as cisgender, genderqueer, non-binary and neutrois.
THE BIG LIE IS STARTING TO UNRAVEL. America’s government schools have become the greatest source of systemic racism in the country.
DO THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS TEACH ANYTHING OTHER SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY? I’m so old that I can remember a time when the schools taught reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic: Health Survey Asked 6th Graders For Their Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity
IF YOU LIVE IN WASHINGTON STATE & LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOL SYSTEM & EITHER HOMESCHOOL, JOIN WITH OTHER PARENTS TO START A MICRO SCHOOL, OR SEND YOUR KIDS TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL. Washington State Education Board Wants a ‘Cultural Shift’ to ‘Indigenous Pedagogy.'
Here we go again: A Washington State governor-appointed education panel recently gave a presentation to state agencies in which they asserted concepts like objectivity and individualism come from “white supremacy.”
Fox News reports Governor Jay Inslee’s hand-picked Professional Educator Standards Board also informed its sister agencies at the November 30 Governor’s Equity Summit that it wants a “cultural shift” towards an “indigenous relational pedagogy.”
According to the PESB, in contrast to “white supremacy culture,” “indigenous relational pedagogy” includes things such as “slowness and deliberateness,” “humility and gentleness” and “responsibility and reciprocity.”

THE ISSUE OF “DOMESTIC TERRORISM” IS COMING DOWN TO THIS QUESTION: “Do Parents Have Rights?” The Education Establishment says, “no”! The Redneck Intellectual says, “yes, absolutely”!!!!
THE REVOLUTION IS HERE; IT IS NOW! There is a whole new generation of American moms like this one who have been radicalized in the last few years. We should listen to them:
EDWATCHDAILY.COM IS THE ONE PLACE ON THE INTERNET THAT DOES NOT COMPROMISE ITS PRINCIPLES. We do not support charter schools or vouchers because their goal is to “reform” the government school system. We’re not reformists; we’re separationists and abolitionists. We’re not interested in tweaking and tinkering: “A New Front in the School Choice Fight.”
