Interested in an ancient proven method rather than a ‘flashpoint’ progressive proposed training programs for teachers to be ‘culturally responsive’ to nurture students to ‘woke’ indoctrination?
The latest political controversy is to question whether “new teacher training rules that would introduce politically sensitive concepts into the classrooms by engaging in “systems of oppression” and “power and privilege.”
The Chicago Tribune February 15, 2021 Editorial and a February 26, 2021 article reported the controversy.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient proverbs and my opinion to recommend a compromise solution teacher need to be taught an ancient proven method than the than the political controversial methods to overrule school boards.
King Solomon – The Beginning of Knowledge
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
2 To know wisdom and instruction,
To [a]perceive the words of understanding,
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
4 To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will [b]attain wise counsel,
6 To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles. (Proverbs Chapter 1:1-6)
What’s My Point?
The above King Solomon advice was written 3000 years ago to teach wisdom to his son same as a compass is used to lead a person to the straightest path in life.
My point is there is no need to introduce continually every changing political views which like the wind keep changing directions, or as a pudendum swings from left to right.
In My Opinion
History has proven the Bible message to teach wisdom and love is applicable to every culture to teach “public morals” for the betterment of society.
In other words, instead of reinventing the wheel, return to teach the subject of wisdom proverbs.
Once teachers and students begins to understand both practical and Spiritual concepts of wisdom, it will lead to the understanding, belief and practice of the best most effective advice to instill everyone to be culturally responsive, or the Golden Rule.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
Since the purpose of new proposed culturally responsive law is to promote government interests or “public morals”, and the 2020 Supreme Court ruling that the laws to prohibit States from using taxpayer funds for private schools was unconstitutional.
In my opinion, the best choice for any parent is to support the election of legislators who will pass legislation for parents rather than government to teach children their ‘woke’ values instead of parents religious values.

Should parents be awakened to the fact they need to take agency and responsibility to choose to pass on their religious values to their children instead of government “board of unaccountable bureaucrats?”
Would school choice or school vouchers help ‘awaken’ all parents to understand they no longer should allow government to decide what to teach and indoctrinate their children to follow ‘woke’ and/or continually changing and even crooked foolish instead of the history proven straight paths to lead to wisdom and true love in life?
