Kamala Wants to Add Two Hours of Indoctrination to Your Child’s School Day

Published

on

Senator Kamala Harris unveiled a bill to lengthen the school day to 6 PM on Wednesday, October 6, 2019.

Leftist outlet Mother Jones argued that this will “modernize” school hours by extending them to better match the working hours of average American adults.

Although most school days end around 3 p.m., many parents don’t get off work until later.  On top of that, schools shut down for a number of reasons during the school year. These days off along with summer vacation, “leaves working parents scrambling for day-long care.”

Harris wants to solve this problem by increasing the length of the average school day, starting with a pilot program that “gives money to 500 schools that serve a high proportion of low-income families to develop a school schedule that better matches the work schedule.”

“My mother raised my sister and me while working demanding, long hours,” Harris claimed.

“So, I know firsthand that, for many working parents, juggling between school schedules and work schedule is a common cause of stress and financial hardship. But, this does not have to be the case,” the California Senator continued.

Mother Jones reported:

Each recipient school would receive up to $5 million dollars over five years to keep their doors open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with no closures except for weekends, federal holidays, and emergencies. Professional development, parent-teacher conferences, and the like would have to happen, at minimum, alongside a full day of enrichment activities. At the end of the five years, the Education Department would publish a report documenting the best practices, as well as changes in parental employment, student performance, and teacher retention rates to be used to inform a future broader program

Harris’s proposal does not contain much in specifics for how these extended hours will work and simply calls for “high-quality, culturally relevant, linguistically accessible, developmentally appropriate academic, athletic, or enrichment opportunities for students.”

Mother Jones added:

The bill would also require the school to find a private or non-federal public funding source, such as state grants or philanthropy organizations, to match 10 percent of the federal grant money, a stipulation intended to help the programs remain sustainable after the initial grant money has run out. The matches can be money or an in-kind contribution

A number of Senators such as Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown, Jeff Merkley, and Kirsten Gillibrand have co-sponsored this bill.

The outlet reported that of her fellow 2020 competitors such as Senators Michael Bennet, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren—only Bennet “has signed on.”

Public schools are already notorious for spreading political correctness and indoctrinating children into accepting leftist viewpoints.

By extending school hours, this will allow for zealous public administrators to continue to exert influence over children and have public schools act as de facto surrogate parents.

Trouble in Paradise: Establishment Democrats Working to Eliminate AOC’s House Seat

Published

on

According to an article from Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, Democrat leadership is making an effort eliminate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s house seat.

Elected in 2018, in New York’s 14th congressional district, AOC has become the face of a new generation of Democrat radicals.

Jarret noted however that AOC’s extreme politics is creating a “divide amongst her own party, even with the head honcho herself, Nancy Pelosi.”

From radical open borders policies to Medicare for All, AOC is pushing the legislative envelope. She has also set up a PAC “Courage to Change” that is currently funding seven House candidates. On Twitter, AOC declared, “it’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more.”

However, The NY Post noted that Democrat leadership are making efforts to derail her hype train. In the article, the Post noted that AOC “may not last in Congress.” The freshman congresswoman is “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.”

The Post concluded, “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census does their best to eliminate her seat.”

This recent struggle shows how the culturally radical wing of the Democrat Party is starting to butt heads with the establishment gatekeepers.

This is indicative of a cultural and political realignment where old school Democrats are likely to be eaten alive their radical offspring thanks to demographic shift.
