The hippies of the ’60s are today serving in leadership positions across the workplace and other organizational spectra. Unlike their generation who took to the streets and on campuses to protest over various issues, today’s snowflakes need to be encouraged to do the same but do turn out to virtue signal.
A student group called “Teens Take Charge” announced an action mirroring teachers’ union demands, saying New York City students would walk out of school on Tuesday to protest the lack of a “remote” option for teachers and students.
The group said, “Our partners at Students Break the Silence, PRESS NY, MORE-UFT Caucus, Student Success Network, & The YA-YA Network are organizing A STUDENT WALK-OUT!” MORE-UFT is a far-left faction of the United Federation of Teachers teachers union.
Join NYC students this Tue1/11 for a walkout in Solidarity w the #RestoreRemote coalition, teachers, youth & families fighting for safe schools & better options to meet the unique needs of our communities #Strike4SafeSchools @safeschoolsny @MOREcaucusUFT @SuccessNYC @YA_YAnetwork pic.twitter.com/R4Rau8VkCp

Shortly after their tweet, Teens Take Charge sent a “corrected” announcement saying the walk-out was an organic movement by kids, not the list of special interest groups.
“CORRECTION: The Student Walk Out is organized by a concerned group of New York City public school students, not any existing organization,” it said.
Unions whose teachers are failing to educate the children adequately are instead using the kids to rally for the teacher’s demands.
The student protest is similar to action by MORE-UFT, which advertised a “Rally for Safety” on Monday to “demand” “Remote until January 18th.”
Due to snow the Rally For Safety will NOT be happening tomorrow 1/7 but rescheduled to Monday 1/10 at 4pm in front of @UFT HQ 52 Broadway! Please spread the word about the moved date and we’ll see you Monday! pic.twitter.com/TRVTZYJeQN

In Chicago, Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot angrily blasted the teachers union after it told teachers to refuse to report to work last week, causing schools to be shuttered. “I think the only way to read it is the union trying to politicize the pandemic,” she said.
“They do it at the expense of our children,” she said. “They do it at the expense of our families. We know that when we were fully remote previously, 100,000 of our kids lost contact and would disengage from the system. We saw in the elementary schools the failure rate during remote learning triple from what it was. We saw the trauma and social-emotional harm to students across our system.”
In 2020, Mariam Nunberg, an activist and professional education consultant, wrote in an email to leftist activist groups that NYC Department of Education officials had asked the groups to drown out a parents’ group called PLACE which opposes the abolition of test-based admission to magnet schools. DOE could then cite the activist groups to say that it was merely responding to public opinion by abolishing the tests.
“DOE folks have reached out to many of these partners, asking our people to make more noise,” Nunberg wrote, before quickly adding for discretion saying “I’m writing to follow up with a request not to forward the full text of the email I sent, since it has come to my attention that it might be problematic for word to get out that the DOE is encouraging folks to make noise in response to PLACE.”
Public education has morphed into Marxist portals advancing causes in line with the ultimate goals of the Great Reset and U.N. Agenda 2030.
Parents who care must act, homeschool if possible.
