(TheConservativeNews.org) – Not unlike a contagious virus, wokeness has shown a remarkable capability to spread. The radical, far-left thought patterns that characterize wokeness once existed only on the fringes of society, but they have managed to seep into every pocket of today’s world. Now, not even schools are free of liberal ideology.
Recently, Los Angeles Magazine published an article criticizing Cecily Myart-Cruz, who serves as head of United Teachers Los Angeles. The piece described Myart-Cruz as “controversial” for her far-left tendencies, including her unwavering support for school closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking on the subject of “learning loss,” which is the idea that children missed out while absent from school during the pandemic, Myart-Cruz said, “kids didn’t lose anything.” She maintained that, while students may be behind when it comes to things like “times tables,” they learned about “resilience… survival… [and] the difference between a riot and a protest.” The latter is likely a reference to the nationwide BLM riots last year.
Clearly, Myart-Cruz is a person who cares far more about political agendas than the welfare of children. This might not be such a big deal if she was an ordinary civilian, but she’s not. She’s the head of a union representing 33,000 public school teachers in Los Angeles. Does this sound like the kind of person you’d want in charge of anything to do with education?
