DEAR EDITOR:

Recently, the National Education Association, the largest organization of teachers released their intention to, as they write, “Provide an already-created, in-depth, study that critiques empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism, and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society, and that we oppose attempts to ban critical race theory and/or The 1619 Project.” You can find this documented on their own website here: https://web.archive.org/web/20210702133611/https://ra.nea.org/business-item/2021-nbi-039/.

I am appalled that this is coming out of the largest association of educators in America. Our parents and grandparents need to be made aware of what is going on in our schools. This must not be tolerated. The push to promote such an agenda and to silence those who oppose it must be brought into the light and exposed. The last thing we need to do is teach our children to hate each other and their history.

Parents, please pay attention to what is happening in our schools and take a stand against what the NEA is doing. Find your local school board, whether or not you have children in the public school system, and take a stand. The NEA has already taken down the page that first promoted this agenda. Let’s hope the one I provided has not also been hidden at the time of this printing.

It is the responsibility of our generation to teach the next generation that we are all created in the image of God and equal in His sight. Teaching victimhood, hate and entitlement is to the detriment of our children and our nation. It’s time for the NEA to abandon their divisive politically charged agenda and, instead, instill in our children the principle championed by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to judge others not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
