Forcing children to learn about gender and white privilege is indoctrination — schools should stick to facts and the three Rs

REMEMBER when the priority of our school system was supposed to be “education, education, education”?

Today the schools seem to be “indoctrination, indoctrination, indoctrination.”

Schools seem to be in the business of

There’s too much focus on race, too little literacy — and when it comes to lesson plans, too much gender on the agenda.

Parents are increasingly at odds with teachers-turned-social justice activists.

It emerged this week that the parents of a London teenager are at odds with teachers at their daughter’s school after they were denied access to lesson plans.

They are fighting for the legal right to see “secret” lessons taught to their daughter on issues such as white privilege – the idea that white people are born with social and economic advantages over those who are not.

Failed on the basics

This comes after the school, Haberdashers’ Hatcham College in south-east London, reportedly denied parents access to the materials used to teach their daughter.

So let me get this right.

You’re forced to pay exorbitant taxes to prop up our bloated, ineffective education system, you then send your children to school, risk prosecution if they don’t show up, and you’re not even given the right to see what do the predominantly left-wing teachings feed your children?

You couldn’t invent it.

I see two big problems here.

First, teachers should not waste precious study time brainwashing children about nonsensical US theories of race and gender gibberish as if it were the sacred truth.

Education Minister Nadhim Zahawi said.

Last October, he warned: “Schools should not teach controversial theories and opinions as fact, and that includes controversial views about white privilege.”

This comes after he received a dossier from the Free Speech Union warning him that teaching about things like white privilege and microaggression was “widespread” in schools.

With identity ideology rampant in the classroom, you’d think we’d already mastered all the other core subjects teachers should be teaching, like—oh, I don’t know—reading and writing.

Not correct. Last September government figures showed that 200,000 students would enter secondary school unable to read properly.

Math is no better. One in five leaves primary school without having reached the expected level.

In these catastrophic circumstances, not a single second should be devoted to dubious theories of race and gender when children are failing the basics on such a massive scale.

DANGEROUS IDEAS

And don’t get me started with the idea that children should be taught that white children are endowed with a special, mystical privilege.

Tell that to the white working-class boys who do worse than almost every other ethnic group in British schools.

As uncomfortable as this is for left-wing traffickers, this is an irrefutable fact.

I know this because I’ve spent years poring over the statistics, not least when I recently sat on the Government Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities.

Publicly paid teachers who waste limited class time on bright talk are not only misleading and pointless, it is perverse and utterly wrong.

The second problem is that while parents can request access to their children’s lesson plans, schools are not legally obliged to do so.

Schools can hide behind the guise of legal immunity when faced with accusations of “secret teaching.”

How can that be right?

You shouldn’t have to write a softly worded letter asking politely to know what your own child will be taught when you take them to school.

Schools should be completely at the mercy of parents when it comes to demands for transparency around teaching.

Instructional materials and lesson plans should be distributed quickly and without contest whenever a parent asks for it – and that should be enshrined in law.

It is for this reason that it is right that Baroness Morris of Yardley, a former Labor Party education secretary, introduced an amendment to the Schools Act to give parents the legal right to see what their children are being taught.

Mr. Zahawi has made it clear that teaching children conflicting ideas as facts is totally unacceptable.

He should go further and confirm that the law stands firmly on the side of parents concerned about identity-political propaganda in schools.

If he doesn’t, the infiltration of these dangerous ideas into classrooms will continue to spread through the army of increasingly awakened teachers.
