As if you needed another reason to take your kids out of public schools, the Colorado teachers union has passed a resolution condemning capitalism. It reads,
"CEA believes that capitalism requires exploitation of children, public schools, land, labor, and/or resources. Capitalism is in opposition to fully addressing systemic racism (the school to prison pipeline), climate change, patriarchy, (gender and LGBTQ disparities), education inequality, and income inequality."
An earlier draft of the resolution included a demand to replace capitalism with a “new equitable economic system."
So these teachers are no longer even trying to hide the fact that they’re turning public schools into socialist brainwashing camps for children. By the way, they had planned to keep this resolution secret “out of process and privacy concerns” – sure! – but one CES member was disgusted and leaked it. A big salute to that teacher.
As you can see at the link, this is hardly isolated to Colorado, and the national teachers union, the NEA, has taken a similar far-left stance.
For the record, capitalism is an economic system that has lifted more people out of poverty around the world than any other system in history. Socialism is an unfair, tyrannical system that’s been responsible for over 100 million deaths by famine, war and genocide during the 20th century alone. Tell that to your kids if they’re in public school or they might not ever learn it.
