This is becoming the normal for our public indoctrination system. The Teachers Unions are at the forefront of this pro communist and anti-American movement. And now the story.
Students in one Philadelphia elementary school were forced to celebrate "black communism" and endure a mock Black Power rally in order to "free" Angela Davis, outspoken radical political activist, from "jail."
Christopher Rufo, a contributing editor at the City Journal, detailed the activities — which he says were outlined by whistleblower documents — and said that he spoke with a school source that corroborated the details.
On Friday, Rufo tweeted, "A Philadelphia elementary school forced fifth-grade students to celebrate 'black communism' and simulate a Black Power rally to 'free Angela Davis' from prison."
"I've obtained exclusive whistleblower documents and photographs from the school. Here's the story," Rufo added.
He continued, "Last year, a fifth-grade teacher at the William D. Kelley School designed a social-studies curriculum to celebrate the political radical Angela Davis, praising the 'black communist' for her fight against 'inequality' and telling students to 'define communist' in favorable terms."
"At the end of the unit, the teacher led the ten- and eleven-year-olds into the school auditorium to 'simulate' a Black Power rally to 'free Angela Davis' from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder. The students chanted 'Black Power!' and 'Free Angela!'" he continued.
He added, "The William D. Kelley School's student population is 94 percent black and 100 percent 'economically disadvantaged.' Academically, it is one of the worst-performing schools in the state: by graduation, only 13 percent of Kelley students will have achieved basic literacy."
"Despite this abysmal academic performance, administrators have gradually abandoned traditional pedagogy in favor of political radicalism," he continued. "They recently commissioned murals of Angela Davis and Huey P. Newton, who represent the Communist and Black Panther revolutionary movements."
Further, Rufo pointed out that such behaviors aren't terribly surprising — as the teachers' union has publicly demanded that the country overthrow the "racist structure of capitalism" and more.
"The teachers' union openly demands that the United States overthrow the 'racist structure of capitalism,' provide 'reparations for black and indigenous people,' and 'uproot white supremacy and plant the seeds for a new world,'" he wrote.
He concluded, "The gap between rhetoric and reality is almost beyond comprehension: the ten-year-old’s marching for 'black communism' can barely read and write. Rather than come to terms with this failure, educators have shifted the blame to 'systemic racism' and promises of 'revolution.' ... This should be a crime. The School District of Philadelphia has 18,000 employees and a $3.4 billion annual budget—and fails, year after year, to teach basic literacy. Educators promise to "plant the seeds for a new world," but condemn their students to illiteracy and failure."
