Questions: Parents ask "Is ABSS indoctrinating our Kids"?
This will start Alamance 411’s series of questions for ABSS Administration & the ABSS School Board.
Most of the world saw the national headlines a few weeks ago of a Tennessee school system asking parents to sign an agreement to not watch their children’s remote learning: https://bit.ly/2GTLkS9. This left some parents to wonder “what’s going on in the classrooms, what are they teaching that they don’t want us to see”? This can’t be happening in small-town America? Not in Alamance County?!?! Or could it???
It has come to Alamance 411’s attention via several sources/parents (who have asked to be un-named in fear of retaliation by ABSS administration and the teachers involved) that potentially questionable things are in fact being taught in ABSS classrooms.
One parent sent us a video of a child’s 7th grade science class – Southern Middle, showing the video you see here promoting Kamala Harris being the VP choice with Joe Biden 2020. The parent had dealt with this same teacher directly about a similar matter, so decided to go to an administrator on this event. The admin told this parent “after watching the video he went to the teacher and asked what the video had to do with science (which I think is the question on all of our minds)? The teacher told him she didn’t think about it and she thought it would just be a fun video for the kids to watch. He said he told her that that’s not something that needs to be shown to students and it should not happen again”.
Alamance 411 has also been told of a similar instance where a parent at Eastern Alamance found out there was a BLM presentation in a sports medicine class.
Alamance 411 Questions:
- What does this video have to do with Science?
- If this was approved ABSS content, why was the other side not given? Biased?
- What if this had been a video for the other party? Would the teacher have gotten away with it or would they have been asked to resign? Reprimanded in some way?
We spoke to ABSS School board member Allison Draper Gant about these questions. She didn’t seem to know or have any information about these events, seemed concerned and told me to let our parents/sources to contact Revonda Johnson – ABSS Chief Secondary Officer: 336-438-4000 ext. 20070 with any questions and concerns: https://www.abss.k12.nc.us/domain/83
