Native American charter school blocked by JLF Director

My culture Trumps your culture all day long:

A proposed charter school geared toward American Indian students will not be allowed to open next year after a state charter school board found the school's curriculum was "divisive instead of bringing unity." During a meeting Tuesday, some CSAB members said they had a change of heart after learning more about the school's proposed "red pedagogy" and focus on Indigenous students.

"I did not find one thing in the book that talked about the greatness of America," she said. "Now let me make it perfectly clear – America has sins. There are things I wished we had never done, slavery included – bad marks on our country. But we learned from them and we’re changed and we’re not what we used to be."

It's all about "choice," except if you're a Native American parent or student. Aside from the fact Lindalyn Kakadelis is a Director at the John Locke Foundation, she's also a consultant hired by the Roger Bacon Academy, which just so happens to have a school just North of Whiteville, drawing students from Robeson County. Not sure how many of the 650 or so students are Lumbee or other Native American tribes, but I am sure that Kakadelis should have recused herself from voting and criticizing this proposed school.

The hypocrisy is mind-numbing

If Native American parents want their children to learn about their heritage, without the filter of white colonialism and white-washed history, that's a choice they should have.

But I guess "choice" is only right when it's used to promote Western Civilization (White Supremacy) and junk science like Creationism.
