Clovis Unified School District is teaching socialism. I have proof. One example of socialist indoctrination was found in my daughter’s 8th grade Common Core English classroom work. The materials read, and I quote:
“Did you know worldwide, the richest 1% of the population owns 40% of the wealth? Reports show that the gap between the rich and the poor is growing. The rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer. Part of this is because money stays in rich nations, such as the United States. But even within the United States, the gap between the rich and poor is widening.”
You probably know the story of Robin Hood. The lesson goes on to say: “Some think the rich deserve to be rich, but to me that’s a fallacy, a false belief.”
Clovis Unified School Board has ignored multiple requests, (including by certified letter), for an explanation how and why this was taught to my daughter. Specifically, Superintendent Janet Young refuses to be transparent or communicate with me.
Common Core is damaging to our kids. Common Core is extremely political. Common Core must be discontinued. I have my son in private school only because of Common Core.
