Now the TDSB wants advice on how to educate children…

“Stripped of the idealism and fanciful verbiage, this is a battle for the minds of our children, which parents will have to fight against unscrupulous people who realise that the best way to effect social change is to corrupt children in their formative years.”

In her column in the Toronto Sun yesterday, columnist Moira MacDonald reports that the director of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) is asking for public ìnput into how it should be educating our children.

As she puts it, “These are basic questions whose answers might seem obvious. But the fact there is fundamental disagreement about them in society leads to so much conflict about public education… Should schools be teaching kids about different sexual orientations, families and lifestyles, or sticking to the three R’s?”

Of course they should be sticking to the “Three R’s”.  The only reason that there is “fundamental disagreement” about how children are to be educated is because left-wing activists and sexual deviates employed in our school system have adopted the mantle of “co-parents” and are trying to use our schools as vehicles for socialist, LGBT and lifestyle propaganda.

I suspect that criticism over graphic sex-education, the promotion of “alternate lifestyles”, and the introduction of “Africentric” schools which give the impression to many that Black children need special attention because of low intelligence and incompetence, is causing enough upset that some damage control is needed.

Watch for the “public consultations” to be stacked with leftists, LGBT activists and others, to provide an excuse for the TDSB to say they are on the right track, so that they can continue  changing society to fit their political and sexual agendas by indoctrinating vulnerable children against the wishes of the great majority of their parents.

A questionnaire can be viewed through the link below.  I doubt many people will answer it because it is unnecessarily complicated, contains excessive verbiage, and tries to set an agenda having little to do with proper education.

Here are questions #1 and #2:

“What abilities, skills and knowledge will students need as they prepare for their future in post secondary education, into exciting new jobs and as they continue to participate as responsible members of our democratic society?”

“How can learning be personalized, or designed, for each student to enable them to make choices so they can excel in school and be prepared for their future?”

These are questions our school boards are paid to answer, not questions for parents to have to bother themselves with. 

And what on Earth do they mean by asking us to consider “What does success in learning look like and sound like?”

Other sections include questions about “Inclusive schools, students, parents and communities” in which we are asked “What is the role of schools in helping every student become respectful of others in our diverse and democratic society?” And, we are asked to consider “How can we best promote inclusion and equity in response to a diverse student population to improve student learning and achievement for all?”

What a load of crap.

Stripped of the idealism and fanciful verbiage, this is a battle for the minds of our children, which parents will have to fight against unscrupulous people who realise that the best way to effect social change is to corrupt children in their formative years.

The Criminal Code provisions in Part 5 about “Corrupting Morals” and “Corrupting Children” might be of some use in preventing this, although the latter seems to only cover events at home. 

Maybe it should be extended to cover classrooms as well.
