Once again there is more evidence of the extreme liberal bias that has become part and parcel of America’s public education system. The most recent example of the outrageous prejudice inherent in the system comes to us from the mecca of all things liberal, New York City. Earlier this week a parent made the world aware of some disturbing behavior at his child’s elementary school.
Kindergarten students from PS 75 recently undertook a class project that had them working together to create an international flag which included the American flag alongside the flags of 22 other nations. Beneath the new flag the class had written – “We Pledge Allegiance to an International Flag”. The project had at least one parent concerned about how his child was being indoctrinated by their local public school.
The flag was being auctioned off in an attempt to raise funds for the school PTA, but since news of the story first broke the auction, flag and all evidence of it have been pulled from the auction site.
The students made a beautifully painted stretched canvas American Flag and then applied flags from all the Spanish speaking countries onto the stripes of the American flag. All the children chose a flag to color using colored pencils and they were glued onto the larger American flag. The stars are cut canvas which are painted and decorated with REAL Swarovski Crystals (gold and crystal colored)!
The fun quote on the bottom is about unity and creating an environment in which everyone is welcome! “We pledge allegiance to an International Flag!” Our dual language classroom strives to be a place that everyone feels welcome!
Sadly, such unpatriotic behavior has become commonplace in America today. It’s becoming ever more apparent that if American parents want to give their children a proper education, their only hope is to handle the education process themselves.
