New York School Turns To United Nations To Teach 5th Graders About ‘Equity’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A group of middle schoolers in New York were taught about "equity" versus "equality" using resources from the United Nations, according to lesson plans obtained by a parental rights group.

    Fifth graders from Herricks Middle School in Long Island were instructed on the differences between equity and equality while on a field trip to Herricks High School in December. The lesson was heavily based on materials from the U.N., according to a document obtained by Parents Defending Education and shared with The Daily Wire

    "The theme of Educational Equity is taken from the [U.N. Sustainable Development Goal 4] in providing educational equity across the developing world," a document from the school with links to U.N. resources said. "Using the goals of the UN to evaluate the steps thus far to achieve their goals the following research was explored for students to create their own projects to showcase what is being done across the developing world to meet the UN goals and how the UN is supporting the achievement of those goals."

    Parents Defending Education obtained the document after it filed a public records request for documents on the lesson after the school posted on its Facebook page that some fifth-grade students had learned about the difference between equity and equality while on a trip to the high school.

    While some of the materials address the plight of education in places like Africa, the concept of equity in education has been utilized by some teachers to push politically charged activism in the classroom. As highlighted by Parents Defending Education, one of the aims of the U.N.'s sustainable development goal four is to promote "global citizenship education" around the world, and many of the materials focus on climate change.

    "Equity and equality are not the same thing. Equality means providing the same resources to everyone. Equity signifies giving more to those most in need. Countries with greater inequity in education results are also those in which governments distribute resources according to the political pressure they experience in providing education," one of the U.N. resources referenced in the lesson plan says.

    Caroline Moore, the vice president of Parents Defending Education, said that using U.N. concepts put traditional education in danger of being politicized.

    "UN standards are contrary to American exceptionalism and merit-based principles," Moore told The Daily Wire. "No one should be looking to the UN for anything, let alone so-called 'equity' standards. Herricks Public Schools should be embarrassed they are teaching students that they are either 'oppressed' or 'oppressors' and have preconceived outcomes because of their race. All students have the ability to achieve their academic goals, especially when districts prioritize academics over activism."

    The Daily Wire reached out to Herricks Public Schools for comment.

Under the cover of Covid, and now in the shadow of the infamous Election Irregularities of that fated 2020 presidential election, with current emerging alleged election fraud in Nevada and Pennsylvania inconveniently slipping into the public discourse, there is proved a colluded ongoing Election Interference in the nomination of the Republican candidate, the likes of which has never occurred in our Constitutional Republic's history, albeit, the question remains: Do you support the plain-sight Election Interference of the Democratic Socialist party, employing its minions in their Propagandistic Media, and their Two Tiered Justice System?
  No, I do not support Election Interference; I am a patriot unto our Constitution.
  Yes, I do support Election Interference; the alternative, Donald Trump, to this mentally diminished president is far worse.
  "What, me worry" if elections are rigged?

Understanding that this fragile Republic of the self-governed is in a precarious space in our nation's vast history: What is your honor bound patriotic duty in helping to sustain the continuance of these United States of America?
  I will depend on my Democratic Socialist politicians to continue to march hard toward the Left to provide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all who think and do as they are told.
  I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and support all elected leaders who pledge to protect and insure the continued sovereignty of this Representative Republic.
  I am very concerned about maintaining my current life style without working. I was told that as long as I vote Democrat, I had nothing to worry about ... but now I worry.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
