For the lazy Leftist schoolteacher who really wants to indoctrinate their students into the anti-Trump movement, but doesn’t want to take the time to draw up an entire lesson plan, you’re covered.
The San Francisco Public School District has developed an entire lesson plan about the subject, calling Trump a “racist” and a “sexist” who only ran “by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base.”
The curriculum was posted by the city teachers’ union on their website and distributed it via email newsletter to its more than 6,000 teachers, Fox News is reporting. The district has almost 60,00 students.
The plan – designed by Mission High School teacher Fakrah Shah – seems to have the tacit support of district education officials, but it’s unclear yet how many instructors have actually adopted it.
District spokeswoman told Fox News that the plan is “optional” and not part of the “official curriculum.”
“Educators are entrusted to create lessons that reflect the California standards, support students’ social and emotional well-being and foster inclusive and safe school communities,” she said in a statement that neither praised nor rebuked the lesson plan. San Francisco schools serve diverse populations and teachers are encouraged to include multiple perspectives in lessons, she said.
Shah – who developed the curriculum – wrote “Let us please not sidestep the fact that a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base.”
“I know that they might curse and swear, but you would too if you have suffered under the constructs of white supremacy or experienced sexism, or any isms or lack of privilege,” she wrote.
The union that represents teachers, the United Educators of San Francisco, defended the plan.
Union President Lita Blanc said that even House Speaker Paul Ryan had called Trump’s campaign racist and sexist.
“There is a time and a place for using words that match action,” Blanc said. She praised the plan’s advice for students — “to stand up and defend themselves, and speak out for themselves and make a difference.”
Harmeet Dhillon, an Republican National Committee member from California, called the lesson plan and introductory statement put out by the teachers’ union “inappropriate propaganda that unfairly demonizes not only the campaign that Donald Trump won but also all of the people who voted for him.”
Last week, more than 2,000 students walked out of class to protest Donald Trump’s presidential election.
