A Conservative Edge
“Don’t Tell Your Parents” 6th Grade Assignment at Milan Elementary, MS – The Free Patriot.
Naturally, telling a group of kids between the ages of ten and eleven to not tell their parents about an assignment is probably the surest way for them to tell their parents. In fact, it is typically a way to ensure a student sneaks a copy home.
The reason why this is so concerning is that Tupelo prides itself on data driven instruction. Now, data is nice if it helps you figure out if a student needs extra help in a particular area. However, what if that effort is aimed at monitoring the political views of a student? What if there is a shift in student opinion to say, the wrong opinion on gun control or say the wrong opinion on right to life issues? Is the school collecting data toward that end to monitor the political beliefs of these young children? As you check out the school district’s video on data driven instruction, ponder for a moment where does monitoring education end and monitoring indoctrination begin?
Then, consider the assignment below. According to a local clergy, this is the assignment that one of these young sixth grade children was given in class. They were told not to tell their parents about the assignment. I find that part disconcerting right there.
The next is the topic: Are you a Republican or a Democrat? I wonder what ever happened to teaching children that they were Americans? Why is there an effort to monitor political opinions so early in a child’s life?
Do the parents in Tupelo, MS need to have a conversation with the school board about monitoring for indoctrination versus education? Why were the children told NOT to tell their parents about the assignment? Is this a pre-test of attitudes with another test to be given later? Is this part of the data driven education, to monitor the attitudes and beliefs of students?
While it may seem far fetched, parent political views are part of the P-20 data collected in data driven schools. Why not the child’s political views?

Be VERY concerned! Our children are being brainwashed by government elite! The NWO is definitely not being shy about their plan to infiltrate our schools with lies and deception.
One new report finds that American High Shools and elementary text books contain countless inaccuracies about Chrsitianity, Judaism, and the Middle East. Experts researched and found at least 500 errors. Stated as a fact was that Jesus was Palestinian, or the Quran was revealed to Muhammad by God, and so forth. Millions of children use these text books in all fifty states.
A quote from the Institute for Jewish and Community Research states that we should be very concerned:
Textbooks around the world are blatantly used as tools for propaganda. It is shocking to discover that history and geography textbooks widely used in America’s elementary and secondary classrooms contain some of the very same inaccuracies about Christianity, Judaism, and the Middle East as those in Iran.
Assessing how textbooks treat these topics provides telling insight into how textbooks approach complex subjects. What do students learn about Jews, Jewish history, and Judaism’s relationship to Christianity? How does the ongoing challenging relationship between Jews and Muslims in the Middle East show up in the textbooks? What about the triangulation between Jews, Christians, and Muslims?
The 500 problematic passages about Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Middle East uncovered in the analysis of the 28 most widely used textbooks in public schools should evoke considerable concern on the part of Americans. History and religion are being distorted in schools in every one of the 50 states.
And another disturbing article from slightly over a week ago states:
And a lesson on possessive nouns contained Orwellian statements about the relationship between the individual and government, such as “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all,” and “An individual’s wants are less important than the nation’s well-being.”

A biography of President Obama being studied by at least one fourth-grade class has received criticism for glossing over negative aspects of the president, painting white voters as likely racists and highlighting the commander-in-chief’s early identity struggles by focusing on his teenage drug use.
The book, “Barack Obama,” was published by Lerner Publishing in 2010 as part of their series “History Maker Bios.” All presidents going back to Richard Nixon — except George W. Bush — were the subjects of similar biographies published by Lerner, which did not respond to questions from FoxNews.com.
Critics also say the new Obama book is biased, pointing to a passage that reads, “but some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president.”
Kyle Olson, founder of the conservative Education Action Group Foundation and EAGnews.org, said that is a problem.
“I have no problem with kids learning about Barack Obama … he’s the President of the United States,” said Olson. “However, the book teaches fourth graders that white voters didn’t want to vote for black men.”
Asked whether the sentence could also be interpreted as simply noting that some people said that white voters would be racist, he agreed but said such nuance could easily be lost on fourth-graders.
Another passage of the book discusses Obama’s youthful identity crisis and drug use, which Obama himself wrote about in his own biography. One passage reads, “When Barry looked in the mirror, he saw a young black man. But he didn’t know how to be black. And no one was there to teach him. He decided to act like the black characters he saw on TV. He started acting tough. He cursed. Was that what it meant to be black? As he got older, he started smoking and drinking. Was that what it meant to be black?”
Some parents also found the content of the book problematic.
“The content of this book should be found objectionable by everyone in the country. America is a melting pot – it’s not made up of hyphenated Americans (African-American for example) separated by those who like to foment discord,” Oklahoma mother of five Jenni White told FoxNews.com.
Olson also took issue with book’s general tone.
“I’m not saying fourth-graders shouldn’t know about drugs – I think what I find troubling about books like these is they’re kind of like the Oliver Stone version of history, where kids are not getting an accurate picture of his background and his policies – it’s generating a mythical character of the man,” Olson said.
Much of the book is publicly viewable on Google Books. The author, Jane Sutcliffe, did not respond to a request for comment.
Olson added that depictions of Republican presidents, by the same publisher, have had different tones.
“The George H. W. Bush book had lines about how wealthy he was, how many maids he had, all of those sorts of things,” Olson said.
Specifically, the book about the elder President Bush reads in one part:
“The Bushes had money for a cook, two maids, a chauffeur (driver), and private schools,” it reads on page 8.
The headmistress at a primary school in a small town in England tried to order parents to send their children to a Nov. 27 workshop focused on Islam or else have the kids permanently labeled as racists for the rest of their academic careers.
On Wednesday, parents of children aged 8 to 11 received the stark warning in the form of a letter from Lynn Small, the headmistress at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire — just over 20 miles from Birmingham.
The letter describes the field trip as part of a “statutory requirement” for kids “to learn about different cultures.”
“The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions,” Small pedantically explains. “Children will be looking at religious artefacts, similar to those that would be on display in a museum. They will not be partaking in any religious practices.”
Small then lays down the hammer for any parents who might be reticent about exposing their own kids to “other religions.”
“Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their career.”
The headmistress also promises to investigate any absences closely “for their credibility.” She warns that anyone who skips the field trip had better produce a doctors’ note if they don’t want their kids tarred as racists for the next decade or so.
On top of all that, parents must pony up £5 (about $8) per kid for the Explore Islam trip.
The Daily Mail reports that parents in the Littleton Green Community School community aren’t very happy about Small’s attempts at intimidation.
“How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age?” asked Gillian Claridge indignantly. “It’s going to make them feel like little criminals.”
Stacy Waldron, the mother of an eight-year-old girl at the school, noted that her daughter would have nothing to do with any decision about going on the field trip.
“This is my choice, not hers,” Waldron told the Mail.
Local Parliament member Gavin Williamson agreed, calling the threat “bonkers.”
“The idea of attaching a ‘racial discrimination note’ to children’s education records saying it will remain on their file for the duration for their school career seems unfair, particularly when it is not the child’s decision whether or not he or she attends,” the MP told the Mail.
The story does end reasonably well. After the intense responses from parents, local government officials intervened and forced Small to apologize for her threatening letter. She has since written a second letter to parents kindly asking them to “disregard” the first missive, notes the Mail.

The school lunch drama continues, this time in Manitoba, Canada.
Close on the heels of a federally sponsored preschool in Virginia disallowing homemade lunches without a doctor’s note, a mom in Manitoba was given this note and a $10 fine when her children’s preschool felt that the lunch she sent from home required “supplemental” Ritz Crackers.(source: Weighty Matters Blog)
The lunch that didn’t meet the Canadian Food Guide requirements?
Leftover roast beef, potatoes, and carrots, with an orange for dessert, and a container of milk.
Natalie and Logan’s mom, Kristin Bartiw, wrote of her dismay:
[If the lunch contained] “microwave Kraft Dinner and a hot dog, a package of fruit twists, a Cheestring, and a juice box” those lunches would have sailed right through this idiocy. But her whole food, homemade lunches? They lacked Ritz Crackers.
So what say you? Have you come across a more inane school lunch policy? Because I sure haven’t. (source)
This particular brown bag hullabaloo is based on a policy of the Manitoba provincial government’s Early Learning and Child Care lunch regulations, which require children’s lunches to be checked against the Canadian Food Guide and then “supplemented” by the workers of the school. The “supplementation” comes with fine of $5 per child, which is taken directly from the parent’s account.
Now, generally speaking, grains are encouraged because they contain fiber. But check out the nutritional information on Ritz Crackers. What seems to be missing from this “grain supplement”? Also note which vitamins are present…pretty much NONE of them.
Wow – what parent could object to these GMO-laden “grains”? Loaded with High Fructose Corn Syrup (a GMO-sourced poison linked to obesity, diabetes, and containing unregulated toxic contaminants), partially hydrogenated oils (this is a trans fat and currently on the verge of becoming a banned ingredient in the US), sugar (because HFCS just doesn’t make it sweet enough), and chemicals, it’s a great addition to a healthy lunch…please note my sarcasm.
The government is stepping in to replace the parents. They are overriding parental authority by teaching the kids their version of nutrition, based on vitamin-deficient processed foods over whole foods. Then, to add insult to injury, they’re charging the parents money to do this.
Don’t look at this story and say, “Oh, it happened in Canada – it could never happen here.” It could and it has and it will continue unless we stand up to it. Our school systems are disastrous. Common Core, a curriculum intent on churning out little worker bees, is making them even worse. – they are about “habit-training” rather than teaching. Todd Walker of Survival Sherpa lists some unwritten lessons of forced schooling:
- Never question authority – rulers are right
- School nutrition is healthy
- Teachers are experts
- College is the only ‘real’ choice for success after high school
- History taught in schools is accurate: “God cannot alter the past, but historians can.” – Samuel Butler
- Faux hero-worship is encouraged
- Regurgitate answers rather than solve problems – (State Standardized testing is a money-making scam to pad pockets while keeping the masses dazed and confused. Of course, this isn’t openly taught, but true none the less.)
- Give up your right to privacy in exchange for security in a world filled with boogie-men
- Understand that the State owns your child and there will be no negative consequences when you transfer your authority over your children to that of government force
- Individualism is not tolerated and will be squashed with great force
- Students are lumps of clay that need to be molded to be useful to the collective
- Guns are evil – knives too
- Schools incubate a mini police state in every child to forcefully mold compliant subjects
- Learning through play is no longer allowed
Politicians like to bandy about the phrase that “it takes a village to raise a child.” Unfortunately, it seems to be the idiots who are in charge of this village. Don’t let them raise your children.
