The Fairfax County Virginia is now teaching young children the fundamentals of critical race theory, in the process they are now accusing the children of military members of being highly privileged.

As The Daily Wire reports:

A Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools curriculum has students play “privilege” bingo, giving them privilege points if they are white, male, employed or “involved in extra curricular [sic] activities,” or “feel represented in the media.”

It also says one has “privilege” if they are a “Military Kid,” drawing shock from parents who pointed out that children of military members must move away from their friends constantly, not see one of their parents for months on end, potentially deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, and risk becoming orphans.

Parents who complained received a note from Assistant Superintendent Douglas A. Tyson that said:

The screen shot you reference comes from an approved FCPS English Curriculum lesson that is centered around students selecting a “choice” test and examining in detail the author’s perspective on a wide-range [sic] of issues. Students are asked, in the lesson, to read critically and think critically about the author’s perspective on several fronts including the author’s privilege that may or may not be present in the work. Students are then asked independently and self reflectively to juxtapose their thoughts regarding any perceived privilege they think they may have and how they would potentially rewrite portions of the text. Students are not asked or required to report out their self-reflections. This lesson is an adept vehicle to push student thinking to challenge the author’s thoughts/conclusions and to sharpen their ability to critically lead selected texts.

The Fairfax school district is near the Pentagon and serves a large number of children that come from military families.

They should be privileged because they paid the ultimate price for these people to be able to speak freely and talk shit.
There shouldn’t be an affluent School district I should play by the same rules as everybody else because they think they’re privileged to run their mouth

I’d say this is communistic but that would be a lie. Even the communist view their military with much more admiration than these clowns!

If I understood the ridiculous explanation, the student can disagree and challenge the statement. That is asinine! I can hear it now. The student will be called upon to defend their position. I didn’t see any mention of the grade or age of these students but this is ridiculous and does nothing to help any student! Our children in too many schools today are not getting the education they need to be successful adults in society! The schools are more interested in brains-washing the students than preparing them to be succesful adults!

The note from the Asst Super is smoke screen…. saying we are teaching children to think, harhar, but along with that is the teaching them the correct way “we” want them to think. I would bet that if the students themselves, any one of them, rebuked this lesson they would be readily given “lessons” as to why they are wrong. Can’t have too much free thinking, you know.
