Schools across the United States are introducing the Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action curriculum, which calls for “disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics”.
Starting Monday, the week of action has popped up in schools from Washington to Massachusetts.
The Black Lives Matter at School website features a week of action “starter kit”, which includes a list of four “national demands” like funding “counselors not cops” and mandating “Black History and Ethnic Studies”.
The week of action curriculum also focuses on the 13 “Black Lives Matter Guiding Principles,” which involves concepts like “Black Villages” and “Globalism”.
The starter kit says “Black Villages is the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other”.
“Globalism is our ability to see how we are impacted or privileged within the Black global family that exists across the world in different regions,” the kit reads.
In a statement, Parents Defending Education vice president of investigations Asra Nomani said “Most rational thinkers agree that public schools should not be home to political activism, from any side of the political divide, but public schools across America, from Boston to Seattle, have opened their doors for activist teachings from the divisive Black Lives Matter political organization”.
“Under the cover of a week of action, called ‘Black Lives Matter at School,’ children as young as five years old are being trained how to be political activists,” Nomani added.
“What we are witnessing is state-sponsored political indoctrination, using coloring books, downloadable slide shows and contests to teach a next generation ‘social justice activism,’ in the program’s own words”.
“We need radicalization out of schools, especially as children struggle with learning loss from the pandemic, and reading, writing and arithmetic back in schools,” Nomani said.
