This year's Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference, titled "Rethinking Our Classrooms, Organizing for Better Schools," was supposed to strengthen public education. But Marie Fischer of Project 21 says it turned out to be about indoctrinating teachers to indoctrinate students.
"We've gone from the point of teaching children how to think critically to telling children how you're supposed to think," Fischer observes. "That's all this is, is telling children, 'You need to think this way, and if you don't, you're considered a bad person.'"
She points out other countries rightly consider this type of emotions-based education to be a joke.
"You don't see this going on in Europe; you don't hear of them doing this in China," Fischer points out. "We were already behind most of the world before the lockdowns. Now we're even further behind. We're becoming a laughingstock of the world."
Breitbart reports that the Seattle Education Association and the Washington Education Association fully supported the event.
