NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE OFFERS ‘#ABOLISHTHEPOLICE’ COURSE

MARK ROBINSON: As an educator, I want to teach children about everything that’s happened in our nation—the good, the bad, the ugly, and all aspects of it. What I don’t want to do is impart my own opinion on them. And that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to make sure that these kids and the teachers are not being pressured to follow any ideology…

We have a task force that we’ve assembled here in North Carolina, in our offices, for the purpose of combatting indoctrination in the classroom and what we’ve seen so far is that unfortunately there are teachers in the classroom who are forcing their opinion on students and we cannot allow that to happen. It’s also happening, of course, to teachers as well.
