‘I didn’t sign up to be a revolutionary’: Former Connecticut elementary school teacher explains why she resigned

Former Connecticut school teacher Jen Tafuto spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Samantha Renck about why she chose to resign from teaching after six years because of equity curriculum, how parents can stay on top of their children’s education and more.

“I wanted to become a teacher to share my love of learning, to teach language arts and math, and encourage kindness — but I didn’t sign up to be a revolutionary,” she said. “Yet we have cloaked terms like ‘equity’ being used to push critical race theory beliefs on students and teachers. During innocent read-alouds, students are being asked to identify characters based on their skin color, to talk about injustices they may face because of their skin color, and teachers are being given scripted questions like, ‘I wonder why many white people didn’t want black people to have an education.’ These conversations wouldn’t happen naturally among 7- and 8-year-olds, and they’re harmful.”

  1. When Dem/Progs continue to have total command/control of the federal government, there will be all sorts of FUTURE Dem/Prog shenanigans for teachers to put up with.

    The same will be true for the rest of the US

    It is not just businesses being over-taxed/over-regulated, i.e., castrated to weaken it, so they will be subservient to Dem/Progs.

    The US Media and the USPS were mis-used by Dem/Progs to steal the 2020 election, to grab absolute power over the US government.

    The Dem/Progs do not like the US Media being such a dangerous/powerful rival.

    The US Media will get their turn in the barrel, so they too can be screwed over by the Socialist/Communist Dem/Progs currently running the US government, which, after just a few Biden-in-the-basement months, is already driving the economy into ruination, goosing illegal immigration, to unprecedented heights, to alter the US demographics in their favor.

    Giving these extremist Dem/Prog folks $3.5 TRILLION, plus $1.2 TRILLION, plus whatever else, to play their ill-fated/wasteful, Build-Back-Better games, would be suicidal for the US.

    A united effort is required to take back the House and Senate in 2022, to derail this un-American freight-train.

    Obsequious, RINO-run businesses will be threatened as well.
    Hopefully, they too will see the handwriting on the wall.
