“Choose me! Choose me! Choose me!” Do you remember that internal dialogue as you frantically raised your hand to get the professor’s attention? I do. I finished my homework last night with a leftover turkey sandwich, and I’m ready to go. Please choose me Mayor Wu.
The Boston School Committee application deadline has been extended, so I decided to fill one out. I have all the qualifications. I have plenty of time. I have BA in English, JD in Law and Masters in Financial Services. I have nearly a dozen nieces and nephews, but no children of my own. I have seen what good schools and committed parents can do for a child. Most importantly, I love the city of Boston, its people and its history.
Mayor Wu was quick to trumpet her goal of ensuring that “City Hall reflects the diversity of our city, represents the expertise that lives in our communities and evolves with the urgency of the issues facing our families. are facing ”.
Sounds good, but the first indicators are that Boston Public School kids under the Wu administration are about to be girdled at an amusement park called Progressive Fantasyland. Mainly, the response to the violent November attack on a Dorchester manager should have caused more than serious concern. The attack gave Mayor Wu the opportunity to play the guy off by assuring parents and educators that the kids in our schools would be safe because the Boston Police would be in the schools, at least until ” a full safety review is completed immediately under his supervision. Instead, we get the same old liberal refrain: no more “investments”, no police.
The next point for the Boston school committee is to end the outrageous mandate of the mask in schools. The mass conformism of masks is dehumanizing. Boston students should not be treated as the vector for a virus that does not target them. Masks only breed psychosis and paranoia. I believe in science and it is clear that healthy children (all but not) never die from COVID.
This year, five Boston schools will essentially test Critical Race Theory in the classroom, before it is introduced to all schools in Boston. Of course, you know this is a very unpopular progressive demand when the superintendent, the teachers’ union, the school committee and most members of the Boston city council use the euphemism of “ethnic studies” to force it. in the city. There is a red flag flying before our eyes as the teachers’ union writes the curricula. Go to their website and see for yourself (btu.org/ethnic-studies/). Critical Race Theory will shape the brains of Boston schoolchildren to forever see interactions with fellow Americans in terms of group thinking. One racial group is not always right and another is not always to blame. I am not an oppressor, but the children of Boston will learn that I am. Race-focused curricula only create insecurity for students, for schools, for society, and for Boston.
Mayor Wu says she wants to reflect Boston’s diversity in government, but so far her absolute dedication to progressive positions like hiding students, critical race theory curricula / union sponsored ethnic studies and the funding / demonization of the police in schools reveals that she is not interested in diversity most importantly; the diversity of thoughts and opinions.
We need at least one appointed member of the Boston School Committee who advocates for parents and students who want the basics. Choose me. Pick anyone who believes in merit and wants to stop handing our children over to the experiments of the racial con artists, labor elites and unwanted scientists who push gender theory.
