LA Teacher’s Union Pushing Woke Agenda Instead of Math

Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of United Teachers Los Angeles, spoke to “LA Magazine” and made some bold claims. Myart-Cruz started off by saying, “there is no such thing as learning loss” even though all evidence points to the contrary. Remote learning has been a disaster for children across the country. After schools shut down in early 2020, the UTLA stipulated that teachers should not have to teach virtually for longer than 4 hours per day, and should still receive full pay. After the 4 hours were up, students were expected to complete assignments on their own. Almost two-thirds of the students in the district did not participate in this version of “school.” Almost all of the district’s 229,000 elementary students never logged on for remote learning.

Myart-Cruz does not concern herself with any of that. Instead, she remains focused on the ideological indoctrination of the children.

“It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words insurrection and coup.”

Before the fall semester of the 2020 school year, the union pushed hard to keep schools closed. They made the following written statement, “The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States underscores the deep equity and justice challenges arising from our profoundly racist, intensely unequal society.”

The UTLA like many other teachers’ unions across the nation, is continuing to abuse American children and hold their education hostage. The COVID situation has only given them more money and more bargaining power than they had before. However, this increased power has also brought increased transparency and visibility to parents – parents who should be filled with righteous anger, and a desire to bring these child abusing criminals to justice.

  1. Those so called teachers are the scum of the earth and it is no surprise that the US is 35th in the world in math and reading, etc. By the way the Chineese are 1st. All the teachers are concerned about is pocketing any monies that go into education. They should be weeded out and fired. All the Commies and the CRT proponents belong in jail. California results are near the bottom in the US

  2. If the teachers want the schools to remain closed and no students are logging in for instuction then there is no need to keep them employed. Their willingness to not follow their contracts should be enough to end their employment.

  3. My wife and I homeschooled our children. It always amazes me that parents in America still choose to send their children to public education; to allow people who do not share your values and who HATE America to influence your child. All comparative testing between US children and their peers from other nations show we are far behind in the basics; reading, writing, math. And watching the spoiled brats 18-25 year old American Children riot for the past year to support communist organizations is chilling.
    We should force the closure of the public schools and pass laws where every parent receives an education voucher from the State to use at whatever schooling option the parent chooses; public, charter, homeschool. No longer would the State be funding “public” school, but parents who choose to send their children to one. My prediction is that “public” schools would close within a year and charter schools that meet the parent’s/children’s needs would flourish all over the nation.
    For those foolish teacher unions like UTLA that believe they are WOKE and are looking out for the minorities, they would be in for a rude awakening. The minority parents in America have been screaming for Charter schools and voucher programs so they can move their children away from the “public” school they must attend. Where Charter schools/voucher programs have been established, the minority children in those schools are flourishing. They will be the leaders in the next generations.

  4. I am a retired teacher and unequivocally proclaim that there is no hope for America as long as Christians and conservatives allow their children to be indoctrinated in the public schools. We must rescue our children!
    Please ask me for more information. I am not raising funds or selling anything.
