Still more reasons to love teacher’s unions:
Standing in front of a wall-to-wall mural featuring a who’s who of revolutionaries, including Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and boldly displaying the motto Patria o Muerte, Venceremos!!! (Fatherland or Death, We Shall Overcome!!!), a group of teachers, students, parents and community activists in the Los Angeles Unified School District gathered last month for an unusual field trip — to Arizona, to protest that state’s controversial immigration law.
Just weeks ago we had social studies teacher Ron Gochez on YouTub calling California “stolen, occupied land”, but now his buddy Jose Lara has chimed in. Fox News calls him another social studies teacher, but he refers to himself as a “social justice instructor”:
I link this to teacher’s unions because this is just another great reason why we can’t afford to have some monolithic, powerful union in charge of indoctrinating our children. Because that sets up the scenario where radical nut-jobs like Gochez and Lara can entrench themselves into positions of authority over our children and there’s basically nothing you can do to remove them.
Even if you do get the political clout to remove them through politics, the situation is still dangerous because we’re still in a situation where government is in control of what we teach our children. The only long-run solution is to break the backs of teacher’s unions and privatize education. Charter schools would be a good start, giving parents the option to remove their kids from classrooms taught by revolutionary psychos.
