The Education Action Group Foundation posted the video above on Wednesday showing a March 20 teachers forum that took place recently according to the You Tube description:
Sarah Knopp, a Los Angeles teachers union leader (in the Tax the Rich shirt) and Megan Behrent a New York City teacher affiliated with the International Socialist Organization, explain how to push Marxism in the public school classroom.
Below is a transcript of the video above. The selfishness in here is unbelievable. There is no mention whatsoever about improving students' reading or math skills. The pure intent is how to use the classroom as an indoctrination machine for socialist and marxist ideas and hide it at the same time.
If you want to really achieve the goal that most teachers set out to do when they first started out as teachers and really be part of the process of human enlightenment...human emancipation, love of learning-- they have an awakening that happens in people,which is the reason why a lot of us get into teaching. (in-audible)...get to do that. You have to be involved struggles for economic justice and to change the economic priorities of this system and to change the economic system as a whole, because so many of us teachers spend so much time and frustration, we get to the classrooms to empower our student and within the context in which we're teaching it's nearly impossible to ask to give an example of what some of the things we can do to be empowering.
