The Michigan Dem Party has decided it was a wonderful idea to post a meme to its Facebook page this Saturday that informed worried parents that their children are not in school to learn only what they think is right for them… they are there to learn the things that “society needs them to know.”
“Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools’ is coming from, but parents do have the ability to send their children to hand-selected private schools if that is what they want,” read the now-deleted post.
“The purpose of public school education is not to teach children what parents want them to know. It is to teach them what the country needs them to know. The client of public school systems are not the parent, but the community,” the post said. It was reminiscent of Hillary’s “It Takes a Village” mantra.
The post ostensibly pushes out the idea that parents do not have the right to dictate what kids are taught in public schools. It also says that those in control will teach children what they should know through the federal government. The words echo the message that was voiced by former Virginia Dem gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, “I do not believe parents should be informing schools what they should teach them.”
The message showed on “The Official Facebook Page of the Michigan Dem Party.” It says that the page is managed by the Michigan Dem State Central Committee.
Massive blowback resulted after the post was spread and the Michigan Dem Party belatedly deleted the post, saying: “We have now deleted the post that ignored the crucial role parents play—and should play—in Michigan public schools. Parents must have a say in their kid’s education, end of story. The post does not reflect the viewpoint of Michigan Dems and should not get misinterpreted as a comment of support from our elected candidates or officials.”
Democrats always want to control people’s children. But now it seems we have they have switched over to admitting it fully.
