Teacher Risks Career Calling Out Backward Liberal Ideology
Our society in some ways largely reflects our education system. Parents put their kids through schools under the belief that they will be taught the basics: Math, Science, English, History, Art, and often Spanish. These students will later lead our country in multiple ways. But these days Liberals are doing a country a disservice by indoctrinating them with their backward beliefs about society and forcing them to abide by their philosophy. Mathematics Teacher Paul Rossi is one of the few good teachers left and is doing the only thing he can, he risking his career and calling out the bad behavior. He is hoping he can change at least his school back to a school that focuses on academics as opposed to Liberal indoctrination and wants to protect the students.
"I am a teacher at Grace Church High School in Manhattan. Ten years ago, I changed careers when I discovered how rewarding it is to help young people explore the truth and beauty of mathematics. I love my work.
As a teacher, my first obligation is to my students. But right now, my school is asking me to embrace “antiracism” training and pedagogy that I believe is deeply harmful to them and to any person who seeks to nurture the virtues of curiosity, empathy and understanding.
“Antiracist” training sounds righteous, but it is the opposite of truth in advertising. It requires teachers like myself to treat students differently on the basis of race. Furthermore, in order to maintain a united front for our students, teachers at Grace are directed to confine our doubts about this pedagogical framework to conversations with an in-house “Office of Community Engagement” for whom every significant objection leads to a foregone conclusion. Any doubting students are likewise “challenged” to reframe their views to conform to this orthodoxy.
I know that by attaching my name to this I’m risking not only my current job but my career as an educator, since most schools, both public and private, are now captive to this backward ideology. But witnessing the harmful impact it has on children, I can’t stay silent.
All of this is done in the name of “equity,” but it is the opposite of fair. In reality, all of this reinforces the worst impulses we have as human beings: our tendency toward tribalism and sectarianism that a truly liberal education is meant to transcend."
We need to stop this divisive brand of teaching. Liberals are only further dividing our nation with this kind of thinking. We need to stop focusing on race and embrace the fact that we are all Americans. Liberals are setting us back by trying to divide us by race. There is no more oppression, slavery, and the glass ceiling is pretty much gone. The sky is the limit for every American, they just have to put in the effort to make it happen. Good on Rossi for speaking out.
