A new educational absurdity… removing gender from speech.

Under Common Core there are guidelines for “equity” and anti-bullying which requires teacher training.  For help, educators (or closet Eunuch’s) in Nebraska have turned to a social justice comedian with a website for teacher training materials.

In the training material provided by the district’s crack equity team, teachers are instructed to remove gender from classes and refer to kids as Purple Penguins. There are other bizarre parts to the instructions that are almost funny if they weren’t actually real.

In one suggestion,  teachers are to encouraged students to rename themselves a noun or a pronoun and then tell the parents to use the new name. There is more but we won’t spoil this special blend of  social justice –  Common core style for you.

 

Here is the training  and here are a few articles on the “problem”.
