10/18/13. Fourth graders get lesson in white privilege, racism due to Common Core.
“Your fourth-grader may be getting a little instruction in racism and white privilege along with his lessons in reading and writing.
A series of teaching guides, published recently by Zaner- Bloser Inc. and designed to be compliant with Common Core national standards in math and English, appear to do exactly that, according to EAG News.
The suggested fourth-grade lesson plan dedicates two weeks to the book, “The Jacket,” and mixes a little literature with a heavy dose of “white privilege,” according to EAG, which reported:
The story centers around a young white boy named Phil who wrongly accuses an African-American student of stealing his brother’s jacket.
It’s a fun little book about racism and white privilege – a left-wing concept that teaches African Americans the values of American society are designed to benefit white people.
Maybe it’s time we went back to the “Dick and Jane” series, when kids actually learned how to read and comprehend, free of ideology.”
