WARNING Parents: “Teachers Pay Teachers” Is THE Backdoor For Progressive Radical Teachers
The concept of “Teachers Pay Teachers” is actually a pretty cool concept. However, much like EVERYTHING else in our schools, a good concept with good intentions has been hijacked by progressive radicals who are out to destroy our kids education.
As we said, the concept is cool BUT being hijacked by progressive radicals who are out to destroy our kids education is not. What makes “Teachers Pay Teachers” even worse is there is no auditing mechanism. In other words, LCPS teachers (any teacher around the country) can easily skirt approved curriculum by the school district, and create lesson plans to further their own agenda. It’s bad enough that parents have to battle school districts for the truth of what’s being taught in our classrooms, now we have to worry about teachers using “Teachers Pay Teachers”.
Since there aren’t any auditing or monitoring capabilities for “Teachers Pay Teachers”, how are we as parents supposed to know what is REALLY going on? In comes another battle. There are no easy answers except to tell everyone about this “backdoor” and push to have “Teachers Pay Teachers” banned OR be able to audit.
