Starting Monday, numerous public schools across the country have been hosting a “Week of Action” to implement curriculum that focuses on the far-left Black Lives Matter movement, including teaching some of BLM’s core tenets to students.
According to Fox News, the “Week of Action” has been seen in schools from Washington state to Massachusetts. The curriculum, as described on the website for “Black Lives Matter at School,” features a “starter kit” that includes BLM’s four “national demands.” Among the demands are that schools eradicate all police officer positions and replace them with “counselors,” as well as mandating the teaching of “Black History and Ethnic Studies” in all classrooms.
Additional aspects of the “Week of Action” include the 13 “Guiding Principles,” which include the concepts of “Black Villages” and “Globalism.”
“Black Villages is the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other,” the website declares. “Globalism is our ability to see how we are impacted or privileged within the black global family that exists across the world in different regions.”
This statement echoes a similar sentiment that could be seen on the official website for the Black Lives Matter movement for many years, until backlash forced organizers to remove the anti-nuclear family statements from the site.
“Most rational thinkers agree that public schools should not be home to political activism, from any side of the political divide,” said Asra Nomani of Parents Defending Education in a statement. “But public schools across America, from Boston to Seattle, have opened their doors for activist teachings from the divisive Black Lives Matter political organization.”
“Under the cover of a week of action, called ‘Black Lives Matter at School,’ children as young as five years old are being trained how to be political activists,” Nomani added. “What we are witnessing is state-sponsored political indoctrination, using coloring books, downloadable slide shows and contests to teach a next generation ‘social justice activism,’ in the program’s own words.”
