Vaccine Nation 0

The Arizona Republic’s E. J. Montini has a question.

When it comes to school children being immunized, Gov. Doug Ducey is all of a sudden in favor of choice.

I say “all of a sudden” because, for as long as I can remember, Arizona has required proof of all kinds of vaccines for school kids.

This new idea about “choice,” however, is only for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Why is that?

Follow the link for his thoughts as to possible answers for that question.

Misdirection Play, “Look Away, Look Away” Dept. 0

At Psychology Today Blogs, Onnie Rogers discusses conservative’s current conniption over critical race theory; she argues that not talking about a problem, in this case, racism is not a way to deal it. The goes on to suggest that, at least to a degree, the conniption is a misdirection play. S snippet:

It is not actually CRT that legislators are banning and parents are vocally opposing, but the naming of racism. Parents, conservative activists, and policymakers are using the label of “CRT” to legally silence teachers from offering their students a meaningful understanding of race and racism in this country.

This move takes a giant step in the wrong direction.

(snip)

CRT does not teach children to be racist, nor does it teach them to hate themselves, each other, or their country. CRT meets children where they are, giving them the language and historical perspective to make sense of the racism they see today.

When the Truth Hurts, Hurt the Truth Redux 0

At The Philadelphia Inquirer, a Philadelphia history teacher comments on the coverup. Here’s a bit of what she has to say; follow the link for the rest.

As a white woman teacher who has taught mostly Black and brown students in Philadelphia for 20 years, I know I would be committing educational malpractice if I did not teach the complete history of this nation to my students. As we approach the 4th of July and 245th birthday of this nation, it is only right to acknowledge that by the same year the Declaration of Independence was read in Independence Square, all 13 colonies had legalized slavery.

(snip)

If the anti-critical race theory and anti-truth forces have their way, many Americans — particularly my fellow white people — will not know what historically has been done in our name, and we will be denied the opportunity to acknowledge, understand, and repair it.

Those who know not the truth will live lies.
