Parents Find Anti-Trump Propaganda From School in Children’s Backpacks

It has become well-known in recent years that colleges and universities have transformed into institutes of higher indoctrination instead of actual learning, but less well-known is the fact that this trend has frighteningly been forcing its way down to the K-12 school system as well.

The Daily Gazette of Schenectady, New York, recently reported that a teacher in an elementary school in New York sent home with a handful of students a flier with a message decidedly in opposition to President Donald Trump and his nominee to head the Department of Education, Betsy DeVos.

The flier, which appeared to have originated with the Schenectady Federation of Teachers union and was dated the day before Trump’s inauguration, called for parents and others to “help shield our students and schools” from Trump and DeVos and their plans to “attempt to destroy public schools” through a voucher program that provides school choice to parents of students in failing school systems.

The flier included the names and numbers of New York’s congressional delegation and a number of members of the state legislature, urging the parents to contact them and express their support for their efforts in opposing Trump’s school-choice agenda.

But a spokesperson for the district said the Paige Elementary School teacher had made a mistake in dispersing the fliers to about six students, as the fliers were never meant to be sent home but instead handed directly to sympathetic parents in agreement with the union’s stance.

But The Blaze reported that at least one mother took exception to the flier sent home with her 6-year-old son, who wondered why he needed to be “shielded” from the president.

“I was shocked that there was material being handed to my kid that blatantly creates division between my son and his president – in his eyes,” said Jolene Damian, mother of a first-grade student. “My 6-year-old just saw a big headline at the top that he needs to be shielded from his president.”

She had written a response on the flier and posted a picture of it to social media. Damien’s reply read: “This is shameful – how dare they send material home promoting fear & hate against our president. Don’t ever hand my child political material like this ever again!”

Seemingly echoing the district spokesperson’s explanation that the flier being given to students was a mistake, Superintendent Larry Spring stated, “That can’t get in backpacks. We have to be really careful with those kinds of things. What we put in kids’ hands is essentially curriculum … it can’t be partisan.”

The school’s administration has since made efforts to prevent a similar occurrence in the future, demanding that any papers sent home with students be granted approval by the administration first.

As was noted by the Allen B. West website, even if this was a simple mistake as the district and union claim, it nevertheless reveals their own strongly held partisan bias, and should call into question whether they are actually capable of teaching students in a wholly nonpartisan manner.

All this flier really does is reaffirm to many people exactly why public schools are failing so badly and why the school-choice agenda pushed by Trump and DeVos is so desperately needed these days, for parents and students alike.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see this anti-Trump flier meant for teachers that was accidentally sent home with some elementary school students.

What do you think should be done about this kind of "accident" in public schools?

i am sure Betsy Devos will have something to say about this

What a single teacher put in a kids back pack borders on criminality.

What if the teacher REALLY hates a kid and their family and inserts a bomb?

I know that's several levels above an anti-President Trump leaflet but troubling none the less.

More importantly it's the liberal progressive democrat machine control of our educational system that REALLY matters.

It's what the educators deem appropriate that gets taught to our children NOT what We the People KNOW is appropriate for kids living with Liberty and Freedom.

How many parents have looked at the educational material being taught in today's public schools?

If you're a parent, you better have a look. If you're short on time just take one book home and scan the pictures and chapter titles. It'll be an eye opener!

What's included is reams of "political correctness". What's absent is honest history and patriotism.

"I know that's several levels above an anti-President Trump leaflet but troubling none the less."

THESE can't be sure.

Abolish the Federal Department of Education and return education to the State and Local governments, NOW you're cooking with gas!

Now that we have a new Secretary of education that has actually done something rather than pay union dues trash like this can be eliminated.  What teacher is actually doing his/her job by allowing trash like this.  The principle should be all over this like White on Rice to prohibit this in a place supposedly dedicated to educated.  This teacher is only feeding her/his own ego not really educating our youth.  

 The action would be "defund", it seems the only language they understand.  These are not "accidents", the vile "Teachers Union" are going to see changes with Betsy Devos being nominated.  A new approach to Education will put the Teachers on Notice that results will be expected, and there will be "School Choice" and Vouchers.  Lousy schools will eventually have to close down, due to their Students choosing better Education else where.  Politics should be left out of the schools.  Teaching Children to read, write and do math seems more than these people can handle, as it is.  Reformation of the Educational System is needed.

First of all it is ILLEGAL to use public tax dollars for political gain! Regardless of political belief, every person in that N.Y. city should be appalled about the waste of funds on these propaganda letters! Hopefully, someone in Trumps Circle will investigate this crap as these worthless schools are not only "Brain Washing " these kids but also are trying to dissuade people from voting for the Trump Party! This is why some Federal Funds should be stricken from the books of these Liberal Schools who do their own discriminating! You wonder why these schools keep asking for more Bond & Levy Money?? 

NATIONAL Head of schools needs to fire any and all who participated in this! ALSO ACROSS THE COUNTRY!


We have no national head of schools. That's that last thing we want.

One of the first things the new Secretary of Education can do is to develop regulations that stop all political activism in a public school that receives government funds... fliers or comments by educators similar to those reported here would result in the immediate forfeiture of federal funding/grants.

Teacher's Unions and other organizations that engage in political speech... should not be permitted to operate as 501-C3 tax exempt organizations.  A voucher program should become a national priority and decentralizing the curriculum and syllabus used too educate our children.... placing such responsibility back where it belongs at the local level.

it used to be that schools focused on teaching the 3 r's and students turned out fine  now schools are more of an indoctrination center for promoting a biased agenda at the expense of children

By biased you mean far leftist/progressive/ to be honest actually communist agenda.
AND MR TRUMP.... please end that and bring back American history in its enirity.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
