This is just really creepy. I thought this was some kind of fake news. But it's true!
Portland Rethinking Schools
Summer Camp for Teachers
Vestal Elementary School
Planning to Change the World
-- just search for the word "social" on each page to find the relevant material --
They are introducing preschool children to this Social Justice educational material. My God, how far left is Portland? I'm a moderate and I would raise holy hell if my granddaughter was exposed to this kind of crap!

And to think, I used to love Portland. Glad I moved. I feel bad for my friends who are raising kids there.
To be fair, your friends technically aren't raising any children. They watch them temporarily outside of their state mandated brainwashing sessions. I'm sure they'll turn out just fine.

Some people may choose to fight to get the system back in a place they love instead of running.

Uhhh ,yeah. I live in Portland. have a sister who is a teacher. Spent years working in the district myself.
This is downright laughable. Teachers are not being "encouraged" to do any of this nor are they being given that pamphlet. They ARE being encouraged to teach tolerance.
Please, dont be so gullible.

OK WTF ! if we as America do not stand up right now and demand this Communist Indoctrination be illegal in PUBLIC SCHOOLS . This was Purchased by Portland Public Schools to be given to 3500 teachers btw....
This is OUTRIGHT MARXIST & COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
Here's a few EXAMPLES Of what is being pushed now For Portland's PS Children:
-Praising & Promoting Islam, Che Guevara, Black Panthers,
- Denies 9/11 & They launch right into promoting Islam,
-They refer to Thanksgiving as the “National Day of Mourning”
-A section to help teachers to stop using offensive and oppressive terms such as “boy” or “girl”
-They celebrate the anniversary of the founding of North Korea & IRAN
- instead of honoring those who lost their lives in the Pearl Harbor attack, this teacher’s guide celebrates the birth of Noam Chomsky.
-For April, they encourage students to “demand gun control.”
and then there;s this:
The planners end with a set of certificates that teachers are encouraged to award students. One such award features a quote from Assata Shakur, a violent Black Panther activist who escaped from prison and fled to Cuba in the 1970’s after murdering a police officer in New Jersey. She is now one of the FBI’s most wanted and there is a $2 Million reward for her capture.
This IS promoting & advocating the Murder of Police Officers to children HOW IS THIS OK IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS?????
LOL I now KNOW what triggered means because I'm beside myself reading this.
