In an interview with Andrea Peyser of the New York Post, the father of a preschooler recalls an email that was sent out by the child’s teacher, Rosy Clark who laid out the upcoming lesson plans which he says were based on the Black Lives Matter Week of Action for a pre-kindergarten class at PS 58 — a primary school in the low-income Morrisania, Bronx neighborhood.
“I was kind of horrified,’’ he told Peyser, “They say they’re trying to reduce racism and discrimination. To me, they’re perpetuating it, fomenting a sense of victimhood that 4-year-olds would never consider on their own.’’
“This year, the week is Feb. 3-7. We are starting to talk about these ideas now, as we approach Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and as we prepare to go into February, Black History Month,’’ the teacher wrote in the email according to the Peyser.
“I am lucky enough to work at this wonderful school where we strive to help our students understand the complex world around them and think critically about how they can participate in improving it. One of the ways I do that in my classroom is by exploring the 13 Principles of the Movement for Black Lives.’’
The father told Peyser that many of the points in the lesson plan sent out in the email were “unobjectionable,” but that some were clearly inappropriate for anyone, especially preschoolers. Two of the most objectionable were, according to the father, Principles No. 6 and 7.
Principle No. 6, which read, “Transgender Affirming, Everybody has the right to choose their own gender by listening to their own heart and mind. Everyone gets to choose if they are a boy or a girl or both or neither or something else, and no one gets to choose for them.”
And. No. 7, “Queer Affirming. The principle here is that “everybody has the right to choose who [sic] they love and the kind of family they want by listening to their own heart and mind.”
The father also took issue with Principle No 12 which read, “Black Women. There are some people who think that women are less important than men. We know that all people are important and have the right to be safe and talk about their feelings.”
Peyser says that the teacher failed to identify “these phantom fiends” who devalue females or black women and that the teacher appears to be “injecting division and suspicion toward pre-kindergarteners along gender lines, as well as racial ones.”
Peyser said the teacher went on to cite “more adult things” that she may discuss with the children but are primarily part of her Black Lives Matter activism outside of the classroom, including hiring more black teachers, subjecting black children to counselors instead of cops when they commit crimes, ending “zero tolerance” for criminal activity, and mandating black and ethnic studies.
This falls on the heels of another prominent elementary school in Brooklyn that is subjecting kindergarteners to sex perverts by sending them to drag queen story hour — an unregulated systemic plague of perversion that is taking over the public life of children in America.
