‘Black Lives Matter at School’ Week Is a Marxist Attack on the Family, Moms for Liberty Leader Warns
As students across the United States struggle to master basic reading and math skills coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, some schools are dedicating the first week of February to “Black Lives Matter at School” in a “Week of Action.”
Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, urges parents to see whether their school district is engaging in that program and to speak out against it if it is.
“I think most Americans are starting to tune in and understand that we are in a crisis in America in public education,” Descovich tells “The Daily Signal Podcast.”
“We have the lowest test scores since the 1980s in reading and the lowest-ever math scores,” she notes. “Yet we have organizations like Black Lives Matter in Schools that are setting aside a whole, entire week, the first week of February—[the] 5th through the 9th—to drive their ideology.”
“If you look at their 13 guiding principles and their four demands, one of them is to upset the nuclear family, to break down the nuclear family,” the Moms for Liberty co-founder notes. “They have other things like affirming transgenderism and focusing on globalism. Many things that I don’t agree with and don’t want my children learning, things that are divisive and will work to destroy our culture and our country.”
Black Lives Matter at School’s 13 guiding principles include “Restorative Justice,” “Globalism,” “Queer Affirming,” and “Transgender Affirming.” The 11th principle, “Black Villages,” states: “We disrupt the narrow Western prescribed nuclear family structure expectation. We support each other as extended families and villages that collectively care for one another, especially ‘our’ children.”
Descovich says schools push this divisive material as “a cover-up for public education failure,” citing poor proficiency levels in math and reading.
