Mis-Educating and Indoctrinating our Children

Diantha Harris

The election was held and Barack Obama will be the 44th President but it is not over. We still will be feeling the repercussions of how Obama won and the lack of knowledge that many Americans have about the U.S. Constitution. This lack of knowledge starts in our schools. (see story)

This shocking footage of video shows a teacher at work forcing her political views on her 5th grade class notice how the little girl who said that she would vote for John McCain is bullied by embarrassing her into total submission by her teacher. (see video)

Diatha D. Harris a former teacher of Mary McArthur Elementary School of Ashevelle, Cumberland County schools of North Carolina ridicules little defenseless 5th grade students to the point of total exasperation and embarrassment because they don’t share her political views.

Just think if this teacher has views on sexuality or any other controversial subject it would only be safe if her students did not express views that she doesn’t share.

Doing damage control the Superintendent of Cumberland County Schools made this statement:

Text of statement by CCS’ Superintendent Dr. William C. Harrison:

I was shocked when I saw the clip of an interaction between a Cumberland County Schools teacher and her students as posted on YouTube. While neutral discussion of the political process is appropriate, at no time, particularly with elementary students, should a teacher infuse his/her political views into the discussion. Most disconcerting was the military slant that made its way into this discussion. We are a military community, serving over 15,000 military students and their families. We value the sacrifices, not only of the military parents but also those of their families.

We believe that military children are our children, military spouses are many of our employees, and military service men and women are our heroes. We proudly serve our military children and have received national awards for our support of military families.

I was particularly disturbed to see the uncomfortable position in which our children were placed due to the inappropriate actions of one of our teachers. Please be assured that the actions exhibited in this video are not consistent with the vision of the CCS. Moreover, the actions of one teacher do not represent the 7000 employees in our organization.

Once the video was brought to my attention, I immediately launched an investigation. Personnel laws prevent me from releasing information regarding individual employees and personnel action taken. I can assure you that upon completion of the investigation, I will take appropriate action.

CCS’ Superintendent

Finally in the above statement from the Cumberland County Superintendent of Schools he attempted to mitigate this situation by suggesting that Ms. Harris is an exception and not the rule.

But is that really true? Aren’t our children being indoctrinated daily with Liberal ideology? Aren’t traditional values being attacked K-12 and on college campuses all throughout the United States.

America just elected a person President who may not have met the constitutional requirement of being a natural born citizen and because of the education or lack of education of the general populist 52% of you didn’t know that or you just don’t care that the constitution could have possibly been violated.

If either is the case we’ve go a lot of work to do, first to reclaim our education system and then to reclaim our nation.

Please feel free to contact any of the following school officials to voice your concern about the education system. (see contacts)
