Virginia education plan for third graders appears to celebrate communism, as hard-left indoctrination of our kids continues apace
08/30/2021 // JD Heyes // Views

It is becoming increasingly obvious that parents who legitimately care about their children's future and want them to enjoy all of the founding principles of America -- freedom, individual liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on their own terms -- have got to do one of two things.

One, they have to get rid of the Marxists on their local school boards. And two, if they can't do that, then they need to pull their children out of the public school system and either homeschool or pay for a private school that won't teach them racism, hatred and loathing for their own country.

The urgency is building, as evidenced by a lesson plan for third graders found on a state education website in what is becoming the Socialist State of Virginia, home to our first president, George Washington, and so many other fine, brilliant early leaders.

Worse, according to a report by the Daily Wire, whoever wrote the plan appears to be ignorant:

The typo-ridden lesson plan, provided for use by any teacher in the state, is credited to five teachers, including Chesapeake Public Schools teachers Candice Anthony-Cazenave and Jamie Marquitz, and has children watch a video of someone reading the book “A Is For Activist.”

The book calls for students to become “abolitionists” and blends indoctrination with learning to read. “C is for Co-Op. Cooperating Cultures. Creative Counter to Corporate Vultures. Oh, and cats. Can you find the cats?” it says.

In fact, there are allusions to communism, which is an authoritarian political ideology that destroys nations, rife throughout the book.


One page states mockingly, "Radical Reds!' the headlines said." And another, "M stands for May Day," which is a holiday that was created by the Marxist International Socialist Congress.

The plan also seems to bash the Democratic Party for being tame while falsely accusing Republicans of being akin to dictators (it's just the other way around, actually, and for the record, Marxists and commies and Democrats always blame their political opponents for doing what they are doing).

The lesson plan features a red elephant (indicative of the Grand Old Party's mascot) and a blue donkey (likewise Democrats) and says, "Dictators Detest It. Donkeys Don't get it."

This is about as overt as it gets.

“U is for Union. Union yes!” which is definitely a communist construct, and “Z is for Zapitista of course,” a reference to the Zapatista National Liberation Front, "a group of violent, masked socialist rebels in Mexico," the Daily Wire added.

The lesson plan also downplays the importance of a good education, pressing students to "agitate," not to learn anything so they can score well on tests (which are designed to measure how well kids have learned and absorbed material).

“Open minds Operate best. Critical thinking Over tests. Wisdom can’t be memorized. Educate! Agitate! Organize!” the lesson plan says.

The outlet adds:

The lesson is part of GoOpenVA, a website registered to the Virginia Department of Education that “encourages all Virginia educators and learners to create, share, and use digital resources with the end goals of providing equitable access to great learning materials throughout the state, and supporting new approaches to learning and teaching for all Virginians.”

Those seeking to indoctrinate children often pump content into such free-for-the-taking “lesson plan repositories,” seemingly because some teachers will use them without much vetting to avoid doing the work of creating their own.

In addition, the lesson plan includes an assignment for third-graders to watch a video of the book, "Something Happened In Our Town." And what's that about? What 'happened?' A white police officer kills an unarmed black man, which leads a young black boy to ask his parents about the incident.

"He won't go to jail," says the black boy's father. After his son asks why, he is told this about police: "They don't like Black men."

And his mother chimes in with, "We can't always count on them to do what's right."

Later, a white girl is told by her mom, “Slaves had to do whatever White people told them to do. Even after slavery ended, White people didn’t let Black people live where they wanted.”

“Did our family do those bad things a long time ago?” asks the daughter.

“Yes,” says her mother.

Like we said, as parents of kids in public school, the only way to avoid having them propagandized and brainwashed into accepting an authoritarian ideal is to get them out of that corrupt system.
