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.”

Tolerant Left: Rhodes college Alumni for reproductive rights calls for Justice Coney Barrett’s removal from hall of fame

The tolerant left is calling for Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett to be removed from her alma mater’s hall of fame. An alumni group from Barrett’s former school, Rhodes College, created a petition to have Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett removed from the college’s hall of fame over.

The group’s reasoning stems back to the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. 

It’s unclear when the alumni group came into existence, but now deem themselves the “Rhodes College Alumni for Reproductive Rights.” The group has pushed college President Jennifer Collins ad the school’s director of community standards to have Barrett’s hall of fame accomplishment withdrawn due to her “public breach of the honor code.”

The letter, written this month, claims Barrett’s testimony during her confirmation hearing in October 2020 conflicted with her vote in Dobbs, which overturned Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to an abortion.

“We find any claim by Justice Barrett during her nomination hearings that she would consider the potential detrimental effect of overruling precedent on a given individual to be disingenuous and misleading. She’s told us herself that if one stays true to originalism and the text of the Constitution, it is immaterial as to whether an action could result in widespread chaos or trampling on the reliance interests of millions of Americans. Dobbs and the current state of women’s health care post-Roe confirms this,” the signatories wrote in the petition.

Signatories also accuse Barrett of being “one of the biggest current threats to our fundamental rights, the stability of our nation, and our democracy.”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley rebuked the group, saying they are relying on “the false claim that Barrett misled the Senate on her views on Roe.”

 

Rhodes College told the Washington Examiner it had no comment on the request.

“We are aware that some alumni are soliciting signatures for a letter regarding Justice Amy Coney Barrett. The letter has not yet been delivered to Rhodes, so we have no comment at this time,” Rhodes College said in a statement.
