If I had a clean burner account I'd submit this:

I wish to complain about the teachers at my son's middle school teaching him about CRTs as part of the STEM curriculum.

As everyone knows Cathode Ray Tubes are outmoded technology, and will not help carry Virginia students forward in the 21st century.   Governor Youngkin needs to mandate that they stop teaching about CRTs, and move on to current video display technologies like OLED, IPS LEDs, and even some of the new advanced flexible polymer based technologies that allow for foldable screens.

Can you fold a CRT screen? Absolutely not.  And that's why my kid's teachers should know CRTs are bad.

But see, that's actual Critical Race Theory. What Republicans are calling "CRT", and subsequently banning like the fascist trash they are, is 'teaching objective reality instead of pushing white supremacist propaganda'.

That lady biatching about the IEP is gold. Ummm lady, how about all those other kids with IEP's and compromised immune systems? Traditionally kids with IEP's aren't exactly the shining image of 'health'. I'll bet she probably declined any type of remote learning too.

Before they could report a "violation", they should first be required to define Critical Race Theory.

We saw how farking clueless the GOPs were when our Lt  Governor had a "Task Force on Indoctrination" last year.

My dumbass sister brought up the whole "It's just a theory, so why teach it anyway if it's not proven?" bullshiat.  Sure, her master's degree is Business, but she should have picked up some critical thinking skills along the way.  Oh, that's another good one.  She thinks it's presumptuous of the CRT creators to call it "Critical" since most people think it's not needed and they should call it "optional" instead.  I tried to explain that it was "critical" as in a critique, but she didn't understand.

Hello, Governor Youngkin. I heard my child was being taught about inequality and thank god you have opened a line for this. How can I tell my children that slavery wasn't so bad?

Loudon County is teaching Second Graders that the Eskimos have more than 100 different words for "snow."  We Americans only have one word for "snow."  (It's "snow.")  Touting the descriptive superiority of the Eskimo language is obviously an attempt to teach our children to be ashamed of the nominative parsimony of the American language.  We should only be teaching our children about foreign languages that are less gooder than American.  Thank you.

Literally every teacher in Virginia will report some bullshiat just to fark around with the system. Glenn Trumpkin thinks this shiat will play in Virginia, and it won't. The next Democrat to run for governor will win by at least 15 points, simply because the race will be a referendum on the clown show in charge of the executive branch at the moment.

During halftime at my son's high school basketball game in Roanoke, the staff played a number of songs over the PA system.  One of those songs was a very screamy heavy metal song that my daughter told me is called "Back In Black."  I couldn't really understand the words, but I'm pretty sure that song is about how awesome it is to be a colored person.  Obviously, the gentleman or lady singing that song is trying to rub it in us white folks' faces.  From now on, I believe that schools should only be playing Pat Boone and Lee Greenwood during halftime.  You know, good music.  God Bless.

Today my son was taught that black people exist.  Please let me know who I need to speak to in your office about having the school razed and the earth salted.

Without even getting into the debate over the inclusion of any curriculum remotely race related, this is going to be a disaster because it gives every person with a bone to pick a weapon to attack schools with.

This includes:
- parents who don't like their kid's teachers
- aggrieved ex-students
- aggrieved current students
- people who hate that public schooling exists

It will be interesting to see what the reporting requirements are. I fear that principals will be stuck chasing down vague accusations with loose timelines. People who were not there will be making strong claims about events they did not witness. Teachers will be stuck trying to prove a negative. Claims will be grossly exaggerated or completely misrepresented (Complainant: The teacher said that all white people are bad and want slavery! Teacher: No, I said that the Civil war was fought over the issue of slavery.Complainant: See! They said it again!). There will be plenty of bad-faith claims.

And of course, dealing with these issues will be an un-funded expectation.

On another note, I wonder how the system will respond to the uptick in reporting of church-state violations.

Jermacams said Tuesday that she and her sister, whose kids also attended school unmasked, plan to register complaints through Youngkin's new parent email portal.
"They are being segregated. They are in a room. They don't go outside for breaks," she said. "I can't even explain the stories they come home with and it's only been two days."


If we replace "unmasked" with "unclothed", everyone would agree that the admin's actions are above board and that those are some really awful parents. But alas, we live in a stupid time, with selfish stupid people who are without the vaguest hint of self-awareness, which is why I propose eliminating warning labels on anything that's obviously lethal. I want the stupid to try making toast in the bathtub, letting Darwinism run free, and I can't wait until the Jermacams family's burial plot is filled.

Next step for them is to force R&B and Hip Hop radio stations to change to some kind of country western format.

So is this a ban against being anti-CRT, subby? If so, which side does that make us?
 
2022-01-26 12:14:53 AM  
I remember how many people I knew that I assumed were knowledgeable on the subject (read: high school math teachers) getting all red in the face about common core math. They shared images of math worksheets on social media that they claimed were "from common core," as though it was a specific curriculum rather than math standards that needed to be met each year.

I'm guessing I will see the same type of outrage from this, except the people being outraged will be even less credible. How fun.
