Ohio Republicans Want Teacher Curriculums Shared Online

https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/2022/01/03/ohio-republicans-want-teacher-curriculums-shared-online/9054152002/

At first blush this might not seem like a bad idea although parents already have access to the school curriculum. What is interesting is one small paragraph in the article:

“And he (state representative Brett Hudson Hillyer R-Uhichsville) thought it could tone down some of the rhetoric at school board meetings about ‘divisive concepts’ like slavery and racism.”

So the problem is actually laid bare by Hillyer’s own words. Racism and slavery are too “divisive.”

Divisive for who? Those who were and are the target of racism? Or too divisive for delicate Republicans?

Merely one more example of Oh-Alabama-io.

3. Every teacher in Ohio should tell these assholes

if they don't keep their nose out of education teachers will resign en masse. Then politicians can teach. But I know in my area there's too many republicans to do that. As a matter of fact the majority of them probably agree.

4. Thing is, we all know these parents don't want to be involved in their child's education

Of course this is not about education. Which of the right wing is against anyway

5. Iowa GQP are creating a "Parents' Bill Of Rights" for the new legislative session.

I'm sure that will be part of it.

9. On the flip side

 

you shouldn't have to sue to find out either...

Then again, if a parent was so concerned about what their kids are taught, maybe.... IDK....

see what your own kid is being taught? They do have reading, assignments and tests, right?

Sounds more like publishing it for these loony people who may not even have kids to dig through for politics...
