There are two stories about how woke, left-wing educators are trying to train your children. Not surprisingly these stories are out of New York and California.
According to an article on Fox News, California educators are proposing a new curriculum that would have students chanting the names of Aztec gods of death, which people were sacrificed to sometimes by having their hearts cut out while they were still alive.
Fox News provides the details:
Included in the draft curriculum is a list of “lesson resources” with a chant based on “In Lak Ech,” which it describes as “love, unity, mutual respect,” and “Panche Be,” which it describes as “seeking the roots of truth.”
The chant starts with a declaration that “you are my other me” and “if I do harm to you, I do harm to myself.” Before chanting the name of the Aztec god Tezkatlipoka, the text reads: “Seeking the roots of the truth, seeking the truth of the roots, elders and us youth, (youth), critical thinking through.”
It adds: “Tezkatlipoka, Tezkatlipoka, x2 smoking mirror, self-reflection Tezkatlipoka.”
And here is the Marxist connection:
Meanwhile in New York, a school is telling its children to quit referring to their parents as ‘mom,’ ‘dad’ and even ‘parents,’ even at home. But apparently there is a bit of pushback from the parents who pay nearly $60,000 a year tuition.
The Daily Wire explains:
A school in New York City that charges $57,000 a year has published a guide sent to students and parents that encourages them to alter their language to conform to gender identity ideology, including pushing students to stop referring to their parents as “mom” and “dad.”
Grace Church School published a 12-page memo that instructs people to stop using certain terms that it considers to be outdated and to replace those terms with “inclusive” terminology.
And the Daily Wire also provided parts of the memo:
- “Instead of saying, “boys and girls,” “guys,” “ladies,” and “gentleman,” say, “people,” “folks,” “friends,” “readers,” “mathematicians…” […]
- “Instead of saying, “mom and dad,” say, “grown-ups,” “folks,” “or family.”
