I've seen activist teachers in my own school system. I had activist teachers in the schools I attended as a child. When parents here complain about public money going to "transvestite story time" in kindergarten and at the public libraries, they are accused of being racist bigots and told to move to the US.Sure I do David. Simple reason? I haven't seen one iota of empirical evidence to support the claim.
The burden is on those asserting that "activist" teachers are a substantial proportion. That's the claim.
I think its all too easy to be drawn into the loudest voices on the internet or to selectively seek out YouTube anecdotes such as K9 seems to do. But none of that is evidence. Are there activist teachers? I'm sure. Are they a "substantial proportion"? Well, now we have to get into a) defining what an activist teacher is and then b) finding some empirical measure of their populace to support the claim. I've seen neither.
Its all fine if you just want to gnash teeth here, but I won't apologize for asking what rigor is behind it all.
Antifa's website in Canada was being run by a teacher in Drumheller Alberta, Kurt Phillips, using school computers and while the teacher was supposed to be teaching kids. We are talking rural Alberta, which is not where one would expect to find far left ideologies being forced on kids. This is a real problem in Canada. Phillips is still a teacher there.
