Kansas City Life Lesson: Schools Reopen After COVID With Emphasis On Equity

Here's our blog community teachable moment for tonight . . .

THE "RETURN TO NORMAL" IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!! COVID CHANGED EVERYTHING FOREVER!!!

Here's one more local example . . .

KSHB: Addressing implicit bias in the classroom

Deets . . .

"Each teacher 41 Action News spoke with said incorporating books in the home that highlight students of all abilities, cultures and races will help start conversations when youngsters are curious. Another idea was to have dolls and action figures that are multicultural."

Our view . . .

All of that sounds fun but not very useful for developing any kind of marketable skill . . . However, on the other hand, working well with others people in a diverse workplace represents a new level of competence that can't be perfected at home no matter how hard parents attempt to teach youngsters the golden rule above all else. 

And so this new aptitude can be considered training for the future that nobody really expected to come by way of plague.

Of course we welcome opinions from our blog community peanut gallery but all of this makes TKC feel a little bit less guilty about goofing off during school given that nothing about American education can be taken too seriously.

  3. More separation of Americans into their own subgroups by the Libtards. It's the George Soros playbook. Let's get a bag of mental manure called "white guilt" and try to spread it over white Americans. If they don't eat it up like good Libtards, they'll be cancelled, ostracized and sent to reprogramming camps in secret U.S. locations. Well, fu*k your Libtard bullsh*t!

  4. KSHB is to be avoided. NBC is the most leftist of the four networks, almost as bad as KCPR. Besides their news NBC has no shows worth watching.

  5. The extreme left wing blue anon nut jobs are doing this on purpose, they want the blacks even more dumb and uneducated, there is no value to what they are pushing, there is nothing in what they want taught that helps them in life to get a job, raise a family, be responsible and have respect for human life.

    NOTHING.

  6. THE IMPLICIT BIAS HOAX

    "In social identity theory, an implicit bias or implicit stereotype, is the pre-reflective attribution of particular qualities by an individual to a member of some social out group. Implicit stereotypes are thought to be shaped by experience and based on learned associations between particular qualities and social categories, including race and/or gender. Individuals' perceptions and behaviors can be influenced by the implicit stereotypes they hold, even if they are sometimes unaware they hold such stereotypes. Implicit bias is an aspect of implicit social cognition: the phenomenon that perceptions, attitudes, and stereotypes can operate prior to conscious intention or endorsement. The existence of implicit bias is supported by a variety of scientific articles in psychological literature. Implicit stereotype was first defined by psychologists Mahzarin Banaji and Anthony Greenwald in 1995."

    So you see, this term was fabricated in 1995, and over the last decade has been purposely hyped by liberal academia and corporate media to demonize White people.

    Please note that in the field of Psychology (a pseudo-science) the term "implicit bias" equates to the formerly used term "stereotype." Much like "Climate Change" sprang forth from the ruins of "Global Warming", "implicit bias" is a rebranded euphemism for "stereotype."

    Also please note the marketing strategy employed in this effort. Whereas it's difficult to argue against Climate Change (the climate changes constantly day-to-day) the tactical genius of promoting Implicit Bias training is that you aren't consciously aware that you harbor these views. Imagine telling a height/weight proportionate individual that they're actually an obese dwarf, and when they reject the description, you explain that they're in denial and suffering from delusions.

    THE SCAM CAN ONLY WORK WHEN THE TARGETED GROUP EMBRACES THE INSANITY BEING PEDDLED.

  10. i young child of minority status started talking to me at the park once while he was playing with my dogs. He volunteered that his father had shot himself in the head. I asked him how that made him feel. He shrugged his shoulders, then he went and played more with my dogs.

  11. Math is racist, being punctual is racist, history is racist, proper English and grammer...what a joke.

    Sending your kid to public school is child abuse.

  12. More lib whining. Same shit, different day.

  13. "Equity" involves intentionally favoring some races over other races and is therefore unconstitutional. Unless Chief Justice John Roberts somehow can interpret it as a tax.

  14. with a little bit of thinking 1:33 you could of said something along the lines of "that takes a special little man to say something like that" or "it's good that you can talk about that to someone else".

    if it were to be me in the situation i'd say "surely it wasn't your fault sunny boy".

    about some of these teachers - teach the kids with whichever method you feel best to use but don't instill reasons for not making it in the big world later because you failed yourself literate/math/etc. wise during your school years under teachers who may not be able to bring out your best potential or even cared to do so.

    seems so much easier just to teach racism and be done with it doesn't it?

  15. EQUITY = TEACHING TO THE LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR.

    IN OTHER WORDS, YOUR CHILD'S (STUDENT'S) STUDIES WILL BE TAILORED TO ACCOMMODATE THE DUMBEST IN THE CLASS, OR THE LESSON PLAN FOR YOUR GIFTED CHILD WILL BE THE SAME AS THE LESSON PLAN FOR THE SLOWEST.

    FEEL BETTER NOW THAT YOU (A PARENT) ARE "WOKE"?

  16. To liberals "equity" means all for them and none for you. They should be ashamed to even use the word given the mockery they have made of it.
