San Francisco used to be a great city. Today however after several decades of Leftist misrule, it has degenerated into an urban cesspool of poverty, crime, drug abuse, and sexual perversion. San Francisco's crime rate is 142% higher than the national average; and the cost of living 89% higher than the national average. Homelessness is rampant in San Francisco: the cost of housing is a whopping 255% higher than the rest of California.
The city also has a severe drug problem---and with these demographics in mind, it is predictable that San Francisco's schools are among the nation's worst. Test scores are fully 16 points below the national average. Now would assume that in a city where incidents like these regularly occur, that the local population might start questioning whether or not Liberal Elitism actually leads to a higher quality of life. But, although Donald Trump received less than 10% of the vote in San Francisco County and has yet to take office, public schools in The Paris of the West have unilaterally decided that Trump is the greatest menace that San Francisco faces. To that end, they have devised an anti-Trump curriculum for 2017 students.
We can of course presume that the Anarchists and other foes of democracy controlling the San Francisco Unified School District won't let their distaste for Trump stop them from lining up at the Federal Trough to support their $788 million annual budget, however.
The anti-Trump (read anti-election) curriculum was devised by one Fakhra Shah, a Social Studies teacher who penned the memo at 2 A.M. on Election Night by her own admission---roughly a half-hour after Trump was declared winner.
"We're calling him out," Shah boasted to the press, "If he's our president, I have a right to hold him accountable and take a stand that is anti-hate and anti-racist. The plan encourages teachers to let students express their concerns and to offer them hope and to tell students that they can keep fighting. We can uplift ourselves and fight oppression here at school, even if we cannot control the rest of the country."
This is exactly the type of Liberal arrogance that likely contributed to the Democratic Party's national defeat on November 8th. "Let us please not sidestep the fact that a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base." Shah further states.
And while the SFUSD opposes the Ten Commandments in school as offensive, Shah's lesson plan states that is desirable for teachers to allow students to pour out vile invective on Trump. "I know that they might curse and swear, but you would too if you suffered under the constructs of White Supremacy or experienced sexism or any isms or lack of privilege. You would especially do so if you had not yet developed all the tools necessary to fight this oppression."
And further, the lesson plan directly teaches students not to accept the election results as legitimate:
"Do not tell them that we lost and that we have to accept this. We do not have to accept anything except that we must and will fight for justice against an unjust system and against an unjust people."
In the context of a democratic and free election, what Shah is teaching is Anarchism. Teaching children in a publically-funded school to lash out in blind rage and not recognize the legitimate government is subversion, not education. Fakhra Shah is obviously mentally ill and doesn't belong anywhere near a school. Nonetheless, her message resonated with the other professional malcontents in the SFUSD. Shah's plan has been accepted for other schools to use; although the SFUSD Establishment stresses that the course is 'optional'. SFUSD spokeswoman Gentle Blythe sniffed to the press that:
"Educators are entrusted to create lessons that reflect California standards, support students' social and emotional well-being, and foster inclusive and safe school communities."
And here we can see a specimen of Blythe's idea of an inclusive and safe community.
American public education is clearly in deep trouble. Decades of public neglect need urgently to be addressed by the Trump Administration. It is little wonder that we are falling behind other countries when our schools are in this kind of condition.
