“You're here to teach my child a foreign language, nothing else” Angry mother SLAMS Spanish teacher for 'privilege' homework

StaffRebel Columnist

A Spanish teacher has been removed from class by the Hillsborough County School District after sending 12-year-olds home with a 'privilege' assignment.

The assignment had children determine 'how much privilege they have' by filling out a chart.

MUST SEE: “I Love my White Male Privilege”

According to the assignment it would appear that white, christian, 'cis-gendered', straight, able-bodied males have the maximum amount of privilege.

The categories the teacher asked to fill out were “Race,” “Skin Color,” “Religion,” “Sex,” “Gender,” “Sexual Orientation” and “Disability.”

Interesting to note that under race, 'Native American' wasn't listed. It would appear as if the Spanish teacher wasn't checking her privilege and considering everyone...

A mother of a student in the class, Gina Stiles, posted the assignment to Facebook and asked,“If your child came home and told you that their teacher gave them this to fill out, what would you do?”

MUST WATCH: "No, I will not check my privilege"

Afterwards, Stiles and a group of other angry parents met with Monroe Junior High Principal Pete Magara. After the meeting the teacher was removed from the class by the school board and an investigation was launched.

Tanya Arja, the spokesperson for the Hillsborough County School District, told TheBlaze that the “lesson was a teacher-generated assignment without district approval.”

“We expect our teachers to provide a safe environment and this assignment could compromise that environment,” she added.

The unnamed teacher told local media that the assignment was designed to teach students about 'diversity' and 'inequality'.

Stiles wasn't having any of the Spanish teacher's explanation.

“To me that has nothing to do with Spanish. You’re here to teach my child a foreign language, not anything else,” she told WTSP-TV.

I’d like a clearer picture of the notes written under Gender. What the fuck is most of that anyway? Isn’t it just Male or Female?

Fraser, to the left brainwashing is teaching. By brainwashing they are teaching children what to believe and how to view the world.

And this brings me to this “trans-gender” bullshit that is going on in Alberta right now & elsewhere. Don’t we have enough problems with perverts and our kids now – ? WTF is going on???
The people in government and authority have their heads so far up their collective asses that all that is coming out is pure shit!

Mercifully my kids are all through the school system and all have Bsc or Eng degrees ( except one who is a certified industrial electrician). Throughout the school years we encountered nonsense from the schools and teachers and in most cases the principal backed the teacher. We would ask for the curriculum at the beginning of the year in order to keep abreast of what the kids would be taught so we could help if needed. Every year we asked and every year we were refused. Apparently the public school curriculum’s are guarded state secrets. We had teachers tell the kids to tell their parents to buy artificial Xmas trees to save the forest even though there was a Xmas tree farm 20 kms away with 20,000 trees. When one of the kids came home with a perfect paper my wife found mistakes and phoned to let the teacher know. The result was that the principal told her that she could not talk to any teachers in the school without him being present.
My kids did well in school in spite of the teachers and the school but the secret I think is that parents have to take an interest in the kids education – someone needs to care and you can’t leave that to the teachers.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could make to earths, one for the progressive socialist left wing idiots and one for the people with some common sense. We could pipe in a feed of the other earth in poverty and chaos. It would make for some good watching.

The math in grade school is loaded with environmental teachings. We need to get the unions out of our schools, and have teachers apply for positions based on merit and skill. And the curriculum needs to be reviewed. Parents are undermined every step of the way in our schools, and that is wrong. They are paid to teach, and they barely do that anymore. I resent having to pay to have my kids radicalized, and turned against me, by teachers who overstep the boundaries, of what they are being paid to teach kids.

It looks like more grand parents have to take the time to teach their grand children what is right. STOP THE BRAIN WASHING JUST TEACH we are the parents you are the teachers just teach and keep your opinions to yourself

I discuss school with my children ans we take the time to dissect some of the social teachings and the lack of a balanced history of Canada. Information, based on facts, has been the best antidote to the progressive teachings. Unfortunately, many parents don’t seem to care.

You know I asked my daughter if she knew what my grandson was being taught in school and she said " Why would I need to know that? It’s JUST school." So yes there are MILLIONS of parents out there who do not care nor give one damn what their child/ren are being brainwashed to believe is NORMAL. To say I came unglued isn’t doing it justice. I went fucking beserk on her ass. She has never once looked or questioned what is being taught. She will teach them stranger danger, how to cross the street but NOT to bring home or talk about what they are being taught in school. Most days I just want to pull my hair out but I do not. I fight on so that my grandchildren will have a future that their parents could give 2 shits about.
