Recently, the United Educators of San Francisco, a union representing approximately 6,000 teachers released a new lesson plan which offers some rather controversial and highly debatable topics which are meant to be presented as fact in the classroom. This comes as numerous teachers and professors across the country have allowed students to delay exams to “cope” with Trump’s victory last week, created extra “safe spaces” for students, and a number of other seemingly odd responses to the election results.
In the new plans there are a countless instances of clear, explicit liberal bias. For example one of the most perplexing statements includes, “his election has made all of us less safe in our lives.” This is certainly notable especially as a substantial portion of his campaign has been involving illegal immigration, and specifically involving the so called “Kate’s Law” which would require a mandatory minimum for illegal immigrants reentering the country. The measure was named after Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman who shot by a homeless illegal immigrant who had been deported on five separate occasions. President-elect Trump referenced this case on numerous occasions in the hope that individuals like this would not be able to continuously reenter the country and seek refuge in a “Sanctuary City” like San Francisco.
On top of this, the new lesson plan continues to make a number of statements implying that “us” as in all the students and teachers opposed a Donald Trump Presidency. For example they ask that teachers assume everybody thinks the same way by asking they say (Note: bolding is from the lesson plan):
DO NOT: Tell them that we have LOST and that we have to accept this. We do not have to accept ANYTHING except that we must and will fight for justice against an unjust system and against unjust people.
The plan adds:
“Let us please not sidestep the fact that a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base,”
But they also ask a number of questions of those who did support Trump. They ask hypothetical questions about what they would ask Trump supporters such as:
“If you could talk to Trump supporters, what would you say/ask?”
However, the teachers are instruct not to ask these questions immediately. Rather they are asked to also state, “we will not engage in dehumanizing those who dehumanize us.” Of course this would have the implication that all Trump supporters would be seeking to “dehumanize” those who disagree with them, or whoever “us” refers to. This is something that at the very least should be concerning for all those involved in the school district.
The list of odd statements in the lesson plan go on and on. Read here to see for yourself what was sent to the 6,000 educators in the union.
What do you think? Should the union be sending this type of lesson plan to the teachers in the district? Let HYPELINE know in the comments!
