Fort Worth ISD is making the news again. You would have thought that everything would be back to normal after the resignation of superintendent Scribner and Jacinto Ramos, right? Nope. My friends, their removal is just the tip of the iceberg since we need to reform the entire bureaucracy and drain the swamp. That will also include leadership change for several schools.
Southwest High School is statewide news now since an English Class that is being offered has many books such as “How to Be an Antiracist” by Ibram Kendi, “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice that Shapes What We See, Think, and Do” by Jennifer Eberhardt, and “The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person” by Frederick Joseph.
You also have books about feminism, the patriarchy, and reproductive rights. One book in the Gender category is “Jane Against the World: Roe V. Wade and the fight for reproductive rights,” written by Karen Blumenthal.
The issue with these books is that it only provides one point of view to be dominant for the class reading and assignments. The books are skewed to the left and are divisive. They also violate SB3 since it promotes critical race theory and the oppressed vs. the oppressor mentality. High School students do not have a choice when they take these dual credit classes, unlike college students who can pick from any pool of classes they so desire. Endorsing one framework in a taxpayer-funded school is not appropriate; it’s problematic and creates indoctrination.
Assignments are created around this book list as a result. Implicit Bias is one assignment that students are to take for the class. Students take an Implicit Association Test and then answer questions like “What is your personal experience with implicit Bias, either to you or to others?”
Let your state legislature know that the new SB3 law needs updates and a strong penalty for any ISD or University that’s taxpayers funded for violating the law and promoting and embedding wokeness ideology for students.
