Editor’s word: Opinions expressed on this letter to the editor are these of the writer alone and don’t mirror the editorial place of ClarkCountyToday.com
Once once more, the Vancouver School Districts’ Board of Directors assembly didn’t disappoint. I assumed dad and mom had rights over their children, not the varsity board. I assumed dad and mom had rights over their children, not the academics. Apparently, the Vancouver Public School Board thinks in another way, as evidenced on the August college board conferences.
At Parents Rights in Education web site the total video and audio of the August college board assembly might be seen in its entirety, together with being on Rumble, the place it received’t be censored. The assembly had technical issues, once more. Last month, there was no audio and no video for half of my presentation and others, because of new audio gear and scheduled holidays, in order that they didn’t have anybody to work the video digicam. This month, the audio and video froze, then went utterly out in the course of my presentation, and others, because of web connectivity issues. Maybe the third time’s a allure and the September assembly can be drawback free?
Masks off children was a sizzling subject! In May, on the board’s government assembly they stated “it’s only a easy factor. It limits germs from colds. We ought to put on a masks after we don’t really feel that good. It’s too onerous to maintain monitor of who’s vaccinated or not vaccinated. It’s an all or nothing [for masks]. Preschool academics can be carrying masks throughout chilly and flu season, even put up pandemic.” (What?) Parents had been asking themselves, why? Why would the varsity board require each wholesome little one who has virtually no threat of demise or critical unwanted effects from COVID-19 to be compelled into carrying a masks once more? Where is the scientific proof that helps the concept masking children is wholesome? This is about energy and management, not science.
When a instructor on the board assembly spoke throughout public remark and stated, “The drawback is the dad and mom. Who cares if the masks don’t work.” The crowd of about 90 individuals had been shocked and went into an uproar. Then, as evidenced within the recording, the instructor turned it right into a race subject. It is actually unhappy that is what our public education has turn out to be.
The college board handed Resolution 869 final fall, when children had been locked out of going to highschool. The decision says systemic racism exists in all of Vancouver Public Schools. “Whereas we notice that structural racism is constructed into each construction in society in addition to the material of our faculties; we should construct anti-racism into the material …” What anti-racism classes will they be instructing? Is this Critical Race Theory hidden underneath the disguise of fairness? The board stated there can be an fairness coverage coming quickly, together with analysis of curriculum utilizing an fairness lens. What precisely does that imply? Parents requested and the board responded they have no idea but. They are nonetheless working with the fairness consultants they contracted with final December for $267,000.
Back in May the varsity board members additionally quietly determined they needed PCR testing in faculties this fall as a “comfort.” This is being performed just like the vaccine clinic partnership the district hid from dad and mom, quietly and underneath the radar. It wasn’t till the slides had been offered at Tuesday’s college board assembly did this begin to make sense to oldsters. Parents have been emailing the varsity board all summer time to ask questions, and the board refuses to reply their constituents. Then dad and mom had been instructed to name their faculties. One college assured dad and mom, if a pupil is available in with respiration points from carrying a masks they test the scholars oxygen ranges. Another college stated they began coaching “coaches“ final spring to do PCR testing, that are chemical laced nasal swabs that aren’t authorized by the FDA. Aren’t there strict medical protocols concerning this? How can the varsity board approve this sort of medical care when there’s not a practising doctor, whose responsibility it shall be to determine for the board of administrators all questions of sanitation and well being affecting the security and welfare of the general public college? Is the varsity board turning our faculties into medical amenities? This is a slippery slope.
The college district can oblige and handle those that need to put on a masks and people who don’t. They simply don’t need to. It’s extra essential to have energy and management on this new period of woke college politics. A easy sticker or button would work. Taking masks attendance at first of sophistication like they take a sizzling lunch depend and do roll calls every morning. Seems an simple resolution for selection, for ALL children. The college board has broad discretionary energy to find out and undertake written insurance policies, as said in RCW 28A.320.015. Other college district boards have adopted insurance policies to make masks a selection. The VPS Board of Directors doesn’t need to do what’s proper for ALL children, and do what’s proper like responding to their constituents’ questions and issues. These aren’t Jay Inslee’s children, the varsity district’s children or the academics’ children, these are our youngsters! Parents are the ONLY grownup liable for elevating their children. Rise up dad and mom. Get concerned earlier than it’s too late and your college has indoctrinated your children with Critical Race Theory and years of masks carrying. It’s already been 17 months and this abuse of masking our children wants to finish, now.
We have rockstar academics and rockstar counselors caught in the course of a vicious recreation of ping pong, identical to dad and mom. Your VPS college board needs you to suppose that is regular. Normal for our youngsters to put on a masks for 7 hours a day, 5 days every week, 180 days a yr? Normal for youths to be quarantined once more this college yr and miss college for 14 days when they’re PERFECTLY wholesome? Normal for VPS to now have experimental PCR testing inside faculties? Normal for youths to be coerced into PCR testing with experimental swabs that children 4 years outdated and up are required to manage themselves, with the assistance of “check observers,” to allow them to get much less quarantine time? All from Jay Inslee’s Learn to Return Playbook. Discriminating who will get an education and who will get quarantined for 14 days? Or who will get again on the sports activities crew and who doesn’t? Normal to demand increasingly more from our already overloaded superb academics?
Some academics can be recording their classes for quarantined children. Why aren’t all classes required to be recorded for these quarantined? Why is the varsity board not addressing this? And what are dad and mom going to do when their children are quarantined for 14 days? Normal to power all academics to get vaccinated this college yr when six months in the past they had been all heroes and moved to the entrance of the road to get the jab, in the event that they needed? Normal for a faculty district to cover a vaccine clinic partnership from dad and mom at Columbia River and e-mail solely college students? Normal for Washington Education Association (WEA) union web site to inform educators they don’t have to answer to father or mother emails asking questions concerning what’s being taught within the classroom? If the union is for the academics and the academics are for the union, then who’s for the scholars? Maybe it’s time for cameras within the classroom? Law enforcement has physique cameras, doggy daycares have cameras, and throughout entrance porch cameras exist to watch for packages left on doorsteps. With right now’s wokeness, coercion and private agenda being pushed onto our youth, why have dad and mom not requested these within the classroom?
Contact your native representatives to struggle for folks’ instructional rights. Why doesn’t funding comply with the kid for his or her education? A file variety of dad and mom are pulling their children out of the general public education system, as was reported on this week’s VPS board assembly.
Even academics say the masks don’t work, and college board members can’t present the scientific proof that masks do work. School is beginning in every week and it’s Groundhog Day yet again. When are dad and mom going to rise as much as this woke tradition? Attend college board conferences! Get concerned, and struggle for each proper of each little one earlier than it’s too late! How many extra years is it alright to developmentally delay children’ studying, hiding faces behind a masks in class? How many extra years will you watch the devastating social and emotional decline of our youth? After your child passes out from taking part in sports activities because of lack of oxygen from being compelled to put on a masks? After your child commits suicide? It’s taking place proper right here in Clark County faculties.
It’s time to withstand dad and mom. It’s time for peaceable protests and civil disobedience earlier than our education system is to date gone we’ll by no means get it again from a tyrannical governor and a faculty board that refuses to do what’s proper, for each little one! Teach your children what civil disobedience means, and mannequin it your self.
