Emails reveal high-school teachers in a tiny Boston suburb plotting to hide their political bias from parents shortly after President Trump's inauguration.
The history teachers at Newton North High School pledged to reject the "call for objectivity" in the classroom, bully conservative students for their beliefs and serve as "liberal propagandist[s]" for the cause of social justice, the emails show, according to an investigative report published by the Federalist.
Ilya Feoktistov, a board member of the non-profit Americans for Peace and Tolerance, wrote that he obtained the emails under a Massachusetts public-records law after one of the teachers arranged for what he describes as "an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel organization to show Palestinian propaganda films" at Newton North.
But he found that anti-Semitism is "not the only specter haunting the history department at Newton North."
According to WND, "the exchange of emails came after history teacher Isongesit Ibokette complained in February 2017 about new guidelines for avoiding bias in teaching that had been been sent out by Newton Norths principal that morning."
Teachers were reportedly instructed as follows:
For current controversial issues (health care, immigration, environmental policies, gun laws), teach students that there are different perspectives and present the reasoning of those who hold those different perspectives.
"Ibokette, responding to an email from a colleague, objected, declaring in an email to the entire history department his [concern] 'that the call for "objectivity" may just inadvertently become the most effective destructive weapon against social justice'," WND reports.
