Indoctrination is their game, not education, and if you, as a parent dare challenge them, well the gloves come off you Neo-Nazi
A Pennsylvania father objected when his daughter’s middle-school history teacher assigned a project about a New York Times article blaming Republicans for the government shutdown. His complaint apparently made him the target of an orchestrated response by faculty at Camp Hill Middle School, and an English teacher named Cydnee Cohen left a voicemail message for one of the parent’s Facebook friends:
“We’re having some problems with a parent in our school district and on his page you are one of his friends…but I would like to know, some of it seems like he is a neo-nazi…call me…”
If you are wondering what in the Blue hell is going on here is a solid explanation from Stacy McCain
What’s happening here? Well, for one thing, we have further confirmation of what every intelligent American already knew: Public schools are staffed by Democrats, who not only vote Democrat and contribute money to Democrats through their unions, but consider it their professional duty to teach children to be Democrats, too.
But what about Cohen’s tactics? What’s up with that?
What Cohen was doing is consistent with a method of consensus building known as the “Delphi technique.” Originally developed as a way of organized discussion among experts, this method has been adapted and taught to school administrators. It is used to quell criticism of school policy by isolating and marginalizing critics, while creating the appearance of consensus in support of the policy.
Here’s what happens: You, the concerned parent, raise a question about some element of the curriculum or pedagogy. You contact the teacher who will then tell you there’s nothing to worry about, and that you’re the only parent who has complained. (Isolation.)
Suppose you’re not satisfied with the teacher’s answer, so you arrange a meeting with the principal. By the time you get that meeting, the teacher has already briefed the principal, so that he has a prepared defense of whatever it is you’re complaining about. The principal’s goal for the meeting is to placate you by convincing you that you are over-reacting because, after all, you’re the only parent who has complained.
Well said, but what can we, or more directly YOU, as a parent do? Well get more parents informed. Try to get more parents involved. See if you can find a friendly media member, yes, they do exist in some markets. These thugs respond to pressure from groups of people, and they damn sure respond to media coverage that exposes them. Start a blog, contact some bloggers, call talk radio, do everything you can to bring the story to light. Remember many battles are lost without a fight, so fight!
