College Dropouts Mark Zuckerberg, Friend-of-Jeffrey-Epstein Funding Effort to Toxify Public Education and Push Woke Indoctrination on Impressionable Children, Parents Group Says

In the below post, you'll see a lot of about "Social Emotional Learning" or "SEL." This is just another guise of CRT.

Some of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world are funneling millions of dollars into schools to push left-wing education initiatives at the expense of students academics, one parent activist group says.

Parents Defending Education, a grassroots organization helping parents with resources devoted to fighting "indoctrination in the classroom," investigated where five prominent foundations were awarding grants.

Their study called "Cracked Foundations," found these organizations gave over $200 million to 70 school districts across the nation from 2017-2021. The parents group said that students in some of these districts were failing at math and reading, yet grants were being awarded to advance initiatives promoting equitable grading, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Critical Race Theory instead of academics.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Wallace Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Windward Fund were the focus of the study, which analyzed the last four years. All five organizations speak of their commitment to fostering "equity" on their websites.

Through 990 tax filings, publicly available documents and FOIA requests, the group found the most dollars went to the Battle Creek Public Schools in Michigan and Denver Public Schools in Colorado. Eight other districts in Florida, Texas, Kentucky, Ohio and California received ranges from over $1 million to $8 million dollars.

Battle Creek public Schools received over $31 million from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation over the course of four years in grants with a stated goal of "transforming" the schools "to address structural bias and segregation," according to the study.

The Gates Foundation also gave millions to Denver Public Schools' Foundation, the Baltimore City Public Schools' Fund for Educational Excellence, the New York City Department of Education's Fund for Public Schools Inc, and the Tulare County Office of Education "to implement equity-focused programming such as equitable grading," according to the report.

Bob Hughes, director of K-12 education at the Gates Foundation, stated that the foundation planned to "rebuild" public education by "leading with equity," the study quoted him as saying.

I'm sure most of you know this, but "equity" is the opposite of "equality." Equity is the opposite of equal treatment. "Equity" expressly endorses treating people differently in order to engineer equal outcomes by giving special advantages to some and special disadvantages to others.

"Equity" is a euphemism for "racial discrimination" and "openly hostile treatment of children of some (white, Asian) races."

Besides equitable grading, social and emotional learning was another focus of these foundations' giving.

In one example, Parents Defending Education criticized $9 million from three of the foundations being given to consultants who specialize in social and emotional learning, such as the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

The Gates Foundation describes the learning philosophy as fostering "strong relationships and equitable learning environments attuned to and sustaining of students' identity and cultural context in order to increase postsecondary success."

But the parents group said the teaching philosophy has become another way to implement race and gender ideology.

Last month the Nation's Report Card was released showing math and reading testing scores had dropped significantly in the years schools were shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic for fourth through eighth graders. Reading scores for 9-year-olds dropped to their lowest level in 30 years.

Parents Defending Education President and Founder Nicole Neily said their study shows how school districts continue to ask taxpayers for more money despite low academic standards while pushing progressive political ideas in schools.

"On a regular basis, PDE is asked 'where do these programs come from,' so we decided to investigate. Far from being an organic, bottom-up effort, this is very much a concerted strategy driven by progressive foundations. This is merely the tip of the iceberg -- but at a time when school districts continue to pass nine-figure bonds asking for money, and families are hit up via GoFundMe campaigns for school supplies (not to mention the billions of dollars that were sent to schools via ESSER funding), American taxpayers deserve to know what's taking place behind the schoolhouse gates -- and how these foundation-driven spending priorities have impacted student achievement," she said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

I don't think Bill Gates should be allowed to have anything to do with children until the Epstein books are all opened and we can see he didn't visit Pedo Island.

"Bill Gates has soy tits. I don't listen to men with soy tits." -- G.K. Chesterton

Whoops, sorry, that was a typo. Garrett said that, not G.K. Chesterton. Though I think it has a kind of timeless wisdom that's as true now as it is now.
