Rentseeking In Schools Now?

A survey of 6,000 schoolchildren has found widespread misconceptions about the number of immigrants and non-white people living in England, as well as negative attitudes towards Muslims and those born overseas.

And who organised this survey, and were parents consulted before their children took part in such a blatant political stunt?

Well, the first part’s easy:

The research was carried out by the charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) and based on questionnaires sent to more than 60 schools around the country from 2012 to 2014.

It should come as no surprise that the Common Purpose-infected school system willingly agreed to give their oh-so-valuable time for something so political…

Ged Grebby, SRTRC’s chief executive, said the findings raised serious questions about the information young people were getting from the media and sharing online, and warned that more needed to be done to prevent them succumbing to far-right ideologies.

Grebby said that the attitudes in the survey mirrored the experience of his staff, who give talks and lessons in schools up and down the country every week. But he said there was evidence that these attitudes changed among young people who had attended SRTRC’s workshops.

Grebby said: “SRTRC’s educational model is built around the need to ensure young people have the critical thinking skills necessary to challenge inaccurate information and build resilience towards the adoption of potentially prejudicial attitudes. It is only once we acknowledge the existence of these attitudes and identify the influences at work that we can deliver the right kind of educational interventions to help build capacity to resist racist ideas and attitudes among young people.”

Translation: “Gimmie more money and access to your children, and I’ll show those Jesuits a thing or two!”

I wonder what Ged thinks of Bahar Mustafa? Ahhh, who am I kidding. He probably plans on offering her a job…

    And (much much) more needs to be done to prevent them succumbing to far-LEFT ideologies.

      Re-education camps followed by internment for those who will not comply with the state religion of equality and diversity perhaps?

    I’m encouraged that so many children are being exposed to the realities of life in our country today.

    I wonder who is funding this charity. Could it be a fake charity, mainly funded by taxpayer money? And when will the long time promised bonfire of the quangos begin?

    Yes, because of course their views are influenced by the media and online. It couldn’t be views shaped from their experience of what’s happening in their own lives.

    Whilst pretty well all of our public so-called services have long been infiltrated by the left & Common Purpose camp followers, it doesn’t appear to matter what shade of government we elect: in accordance with Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy, these apparatchiks take greater and greater control of our country, and aiming propaganda at immature minds of all ages.

    On the positive side, in order to accommodate these anti-racism lessons into the school day, they’ll have to drop some of the current pro-EU and Climate Change propaganda slots.
    Or maybe they’ll drop Maths & English instead.

    XX young people have the critical thinking skills necessary to challenge inaccurate information and build resilience towards the adoption of potentially prejudicial attitudes.XX

    From the first statement, it appears the already HAVE developed those skills.

    Good on them.

    Far right ideology = not agreeing with my far left ideology.
