How much would you pay to give kindergarteners a “woke” education? Like it or not, California taxpayers do not have a choice and are directly paying for children to receive “anti-racist” and “anti-bias” training.

California’s Glassbrook Elementary School is paying an insane $20,000 for “woke kindergarten” consultants to lead the training.

The founder of Woke Kindergarten, Akiea “Ki” Gross, identifies as they/them according to Woke Kindergarten’s website, and is described as “an abolitionist early educator, cultural organizer and creator currently innovating ways to resist, heal, liberate and create with their pedagogy, Woke Kindergarten.”

According to the proposal, Woke Kindergarten partnered with Glassbrook Elementary during the 2021-2022 school year “to facilitate four workshops and support staff in creating and implementing healing-centered, early childhood & elementary tools and frameworks to support teachers in supporting children’s holistic needs in the classroom.”

The website boasts “woke wonderings,” about the consequences of abolishing money, defunding the police and the military, eradicating borders, and challenging the legitimacy of the Supreme Court.

Fox News reports:

Woke Kindergarten’s homepage calls the organization a “global, abolitionist early childhood ecosystem,” and says it is “supporting children, families, educators and organizations in their commitment to abolitionist early education and pro-black and queer and trans liberation.” 

According to the contractor agreement, Woke Kindergarten was hired for “thematic unit planning and coaching,” and the financial impact statement describes the purpose of the training is to “continue … anti-racist, anti-bias training and connect to building thematic units along with coaching.”

The scope of the contract also includes using Woke Kindergarten’s resources to “disrupt whiteness, white dominant/settler colonial narratives and anti-Blackness in the Glassbrook [Elementary School] community.”

Supreme Court agrees to hear student debt forgiveness case

Six Republican-led states which are challenging the Biden admministration’s student loan forgiveness program will be heading to the Supreme Court.

Earlier this month a federal appeals court in St. Louis sided with Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina, and issued an injunction blocking the plan to provide up to $20,000 in student-loan relief money to millions of individuals.

The Biden administration subsequently asked the Supreme Court to intervene. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar asked the Supreme Court to lift the injunction.

“The Eighth Circuit’s erroneous injunction leaves millions of economically vulnerable borrowers in limbo, uncertain about the size of their debt and unable to make financial decisions with an accurate understanding of their future repayment obligations,” Prelogar, told the Supreme Court in a filing.

Prelogar told the court that if it denied relief, it should agree to consider the merits of the case instead.

CBS News reports:

The court said in a brief order that it will hear arguments in February, but will keep the program on hold for now. Last week, President Biden extended his pause on federal student loan payments until June 30, 2023, to give the court time to consider the dispute.

“We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case on our student debt relief plan for middle and working class borrowers this February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “This program is necessary to help over 40 million eligible Americans struggling under the burden of student loan debt recover from the pandemic and move forward with their lives. The program is also legal, supported by careful analysis from administration lawyers.”
