Woke Nightmare: Just as Hitler and Communists Have Used 'Re-education' of the Youth, It's About to Happen Here in the US, Starting With Illinois

Aimee Herd-Commentary : Jan 28, 2021  Breaking Christian News

"Illinois is literally about to mandate that every one of its licensed teachers adopt progressive political orthodoxy and impart that ideology to students. The entire Illinois teacher corps will be effectively forced into political re-education and compelled to turn their classes into woke indoctrination sessions." -Stanley Kurtz, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center

Back in the '80's, wanting to give my children a head start in the very basics of education, and not happy with the liberal-leaning ideology found in public schools of that time, I opted to homeschool for a few years at least. (Image: Pixabay)

But, what is being proposed now makes the education frontier of that time look more like "Little House on the Prairie."

Parents of school-aged children, grandparents and teachers, who appreciate traditional education centered around things kids should actually be learning—such as reading, writing, math and science—must be warned of what is currently being pushed into implementation.

In his January 19th article in the National Review, Stanley Kurtz, who is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, sounded the alarm about the new Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards, or CRTL Standards, being proposed by the Illinois State Board of Education.

"Should the rule be ratified on February 16, the entire Illinois teacher corps will be effectively forced into political re-education and compelled to turn their classes into woke indoctrination sessions," Kurtz wrote. "...the most extraordinary in a raft of outrageous dictates is that teachers must 'embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.' Illinois is literally about to mandate that every one of its licensed teachers adopt progressive political orthodoxy and impart that ideology to students. I've seen some pretty extreme stuff in my time, but my jaw is now officially on the floor."

Kurtz continues, noting that "...Teachers already pressed into the role of de facto leftist community organizers by the 2015 Illinois civics law will soon be liable to negative performance reviews; student, peer, or parent complaints; or even failure of licensure, if they refuse to lead classroom discussions or organize student protests and lobbying expeditions on behalf of leftist causes. Illinois' new Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards, in combination with the existing Illinois civics law, really do formalize the conversion of K-12 schools into political indoctrination camps."

The compulsory curricula is eerily reminiscent of the way Hitler and various communist leaders (including the current Chinese Communist Party) forced their ideology on the youth of their time, in an effort to brainwash the upcoming generation.

And if you think moving from the Land of Lincoln will preserve your child's freedom to think, Kurtz warns that the "Illinois experience is about to go national," with the result being "'action civics' on the Illinois template in every state in the union."

What can concerned citizens, parents, and teachers do?

Kurtz notes that "serious pushback from the public just might tilt enough votes to block ratification." The authorization of the CRTL standards is due to happen in just a couple weeks, on Feb. 16th.

A Zero Hedge article on this chilling, communist-style re-education form explains who will be making this decision:

"All is not yet lost. The final word on the CLTL Standards is up to an obscure Illinois legislative committee known as JCAR, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules. It will make its final decision on February 16. Opposition to the standards seems to be led by Rep. Stephen Reick (R-Woodstock), a JCAR member. However, JCAR is usually a rubber stamp and it is dominated by Chicago area legislators and others who support the standards. Unless they are overwhelmed by complaints, the standards will take effect. JCAR's members are listed here. Tell them what you think."
