Do you know what your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are learning in school? Are you aware of the extremist political agenda that drives the priorities and perspectives of our children’s curricula?
In a typical school day a child spends more time in school than with his family. Are you sure that our schools are instilling in our children the values that you hold dear? Do not underestimate the lasting impact that political correctness can have on young minds!
We’ve seen what can happen when the impressionable minds of schoolchildren meet intractable propaganda. We have watched for years while the Palestinian Authority steeps their children in hate-filled fabrications about Israel (from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion to the blood libel against the Jews, and much, much more.)
The splendid Israeli-Arab journalist Khaled Abu Toameh recently gave a talk at the University of Oregon in which he said that two, if not three, generations of Palestinians would have to be re-educated for peace before the situation would change.
This highlights the fact that people who want to change society from the inside out try to control the education of young people. The teaching of history, in the wrong hands, can lead to the establishment of an ignorant and/or totalitarian society. In fact, this kind of control is something that is currently happening in our nation’s public schools. The phenomenon is also evident in our dumbed down and politicized texbooks.
Larry Sand will point out the ways in which our school system is failing to tell our children the truth about the encroaching global influence of militant Islam: How textbooks make no distinction between sharia and Western law; how they convey the idea that women are making great strides in the Islamic world when all evidence indicates otherwise; how they fail to explain that Muslim terrorists seek to destroy the United States and Israel; how they omit geopolitical goals that include theocracy and world domination by religion.
Not only do they skew current events to suit their agenda, these textbooks are practically a parody of the multi-culti mania currently loose in our schools: Houghton Mifflin’s 8th grade history, Creating America, identifies to our children ten representative American Heroes: Abigail Adams, Crispus Attucks, Andrew Jackson, Queen Liluokalanai, Abraham Lincoln, Juan Sequin, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, George Washington, Ida B. Wells and Zitkala-Sa.
This is an opportunity for you to hear first-hand from a man who is in the trenches at a Los Angeles middle school. While Larry Sand believes that we will never rid ourselves of public schools, he also believes that parents should have options few can take advantage of now – vouchers, charter schools, and home schooling.
This should be a rousing discussion of what to do with our ailing school system. Please join us to learn what you can do to help reform our ailing public education system.
Larry Sand is a veteran school teacher who began his career in New York in 1971. He has taught elementary school as well as English, math, and history in middle school. Currently, he is the Title 1 Coordinator at Webster Middle School (LAUSD) in West Los Angeles. He is also the president of the California Teachers Empowerment Network, a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, dedicated to getting information to teachers that they will not get from their school districts or unions.
The influence of teachers’ union is very extensive.
You CAN counter that influence. LEARN HOW.
Please plan to attend and forward this invitation to all on your list.
