School Districts and Teachers Unions Launch ‘Black Lives Matter’ Week

In schools across the country, the first full week of February will feature a “Week of Action” in support of the far-left Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, organized by school districts and teachers unions.

As the Daily Caller reports, among the school districts and unions that will be promoting the “week of action” are the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Chicago Teachers Union, D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice, and Milwaukee Public Schools.

On February 6th, D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice will host a panel titled “Centering Collective Value in the Early Years,” and will feature discussions on “concrete strategies for anti-racist pedagogy and abolitionist practice.”

In Milwaukee, the week of action will kick off with a panel on February 5th titled “Intergenerational Night,” including discussions on “the principles of Black Lives Matter,” in addition to other “in-school” activities that will aim to “encourage awareness of the Black Lives Matter principles and the importance of our collective value.” Students will also be demanded to wear pro-BLM apparel during these events.

Also on February 5th, the Los Angeles Unified School District will order students to wear all black clothing “in solidarity of black students and families.”

The broader effort is formally known as “BLM at School Week.” The movement includes 13 “principles” that guide its instruction, including being supportive of “trans” and “queer” people, supporting “globalism,” and engaging in “restorative justice.”

“You don’t have to look any further than their 13 guiding principles to have real concerns about why BLM at schools should not be in schools. One of their 13 guiding principles is disrupting the nuclear family,” said Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty. “Supporting globalism, transgender affirmation, any reasoning person can look at that and wonder what that has to do with black lives matter.”
