Woke curriculum is shortchanging students

If public schools persist in their identity politics curriculum, they will eventually lose whatever support they have from taxpayers (“Dad says NYC DOE public schools are ‘brainwashing’ kids with woke agenda,” New York Post, Jan. 30).  Instead of teaching students what they need to succeed in college and beyond, they are indoctrinating them.

I realize that the traditional curriculum was not perfect.  It tended to present only one side of controversial issues.  But what is happening today goes to the opposite side, creating resentment between the races.  Moreover, it invades subjects such as math and science where it does not belong. As a result, students are being deprived of a solid education that will handicap them after graduation.
