Children are never too young to become “woke” to social justice ideology. A new preschool is set to open in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle, aiming to indoctrinate children younger than seven in social justice and intersectional theory.
“We’re looking to create the confidence that when these kids go into predominately white schools that they can bring counter narratives to the school,” said Gore in an interview with King5 News.
The two teachers say that that preschool education must go beyond singing songs and reading picture books. Instead, they plan to carry the discussion of race and racism all throughout the course of the children’s time at the preschool. The curriculum will include telling “the stories that are untold” and the earnest teachers will strive to actively change whatever pre-existing biases the children might have.
“When we’re telling stories to our kids, especially about people of color, we want to make sure that we’re showing them stories about people of color that aren’t just about people existing in the past,” said Frelot.
A parent speaking to the news station told them that her children who were exposed to “Disney princess culture” must be made aware of the struggle that non-white people face.
“I like the idea of these kids being exposed to role models that don’t look like them,” she said.
The teachers’ mindset follows the belief that toddlers can be inherently sexist and racist. It’s a view promoted by academic institutions such as Evergreen College, also in Washington State, which is holding a series of workshops for parents to help them cure their young children of natural thoughts like the gender binary.
It’s best to catch children while they’re still young, before they hop on Twitter and immerse themselves in memes that make fun of feminist outrage.
