Anti-Semitism is a topic we seem to keep revisiting with more frequency than Amy Schumer at the Krispy Kreme. Generally, the mainstream press only talks about Jew hatred if they can tie it to Trump. Whose son-in-law and now daughter are Jewish, but those be details. But this past week we had this lovely teacher in Texas who struck a few Jewish chords. Here’s the story: DISTURBING: Preschool Teacher Calls for Killing of Jews. We have some good news to report about her. She’s been dismissed:
According to Dallas News, the teacher, Nancy Salem — who is a member of the notoriously anti-Semitic Students for Justice in Palestine — was recently fired from The Children’s Courtyard preschool after a watchdog group revealed that she had been posting disturbing statements online about Jews.
The watchdog group, Canary Mission, said that Salem was not the only one in her circle posting anti-Semitic statements online. The group discovered similar posts by 18 other members of the University of Texas at Arlington chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, a nationwide student club known for its promotion of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel propaganda. The student group, Canary Mission states, is a “focal point for campus anti-Semitism.” Dallas News notes that while Salem is not enrolled at UTA, she is an active member of the university’s SJP chapter.
I mean, maybe if there was extreme vetting, or any vetting, over who teaches our kids, ties to Palestine may have come up. But, you know, Islamophobia and leftist hypocrisy and all that.
Here’s a novel concept that’s been lost on the education system lately: children coming first, specifically with educators who are teaching them that which is worth teaching, and who keep them in a safe environment. But lately it seems what most schools are interested in is filling quotas. Virtue signaling. Telling everyone how awesome they are for having a “diverse” staff. Or “transgender bathrooms.” There’s so much emphasis placed upon impressing one’s fellow elitist liberal snobs over vegan kabobs, not one person is asking about the quality of education for the wee chitlins.
Whatever happened to “we have the best school for kids”? Just me, or does it seem like the focus of schooling, and of schools as institutions, are no longer about the quality of education provided to children.
Think about it over cake.
