We are bringing awareness to the unjust and unfair treatment our nation’s children are experiencing due to state-sanctioned indoctrination and certain schools not reopening in the DC Metro Area.
I wanted to share something that ties into Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), black lives matter (BLM), and Law Enforcement (LE).
Recently I saw my son’s high school teacher wearing a BLM shirt on their zoom meeting for class. We addressed it by expressing our concern with the principal, informing him of my husband’s service and how my entire career has been in support of all levels of LE in many different ways throughout the years.
Today we received a response.
“MCPS does not recognize Black Lives Matter as political speech. It is recognized as an advocacy group started as a response to police shootings, as you can read on their website. The organization’s mission is aligned with the MCPS core values, and it is representative of our inclusive environment. That said, I did discuss the shirt with the teacher and let her know that one of her student’s families took offense to her wearing of the shirt so she was aware of the possible impact on some of her students and community members.”
The first issue is the principal speaking for the district. The second is the BLM site. Their political advocacy isn’t listed on the “About” page but it is listed on the “What’s Next” portion of their site.
My question is why is this acceptable? They are saying that the district’s core values align with civil unrest and the targeting of LE? MCPS is the largest school district in MD.
THIS is what our kids are seeing and secretly learning? I’m utterly speechless right now.Anonymous in Montgomery County, Maryland
