(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Conservative watchdog Project Veritas has once again exposed leftists’ plans to subtly push their radical agenda onto unsuspecting children via the public schooling system, according to a press release.
During a hidden-camera investigation, Jeremy Boland, assistant principal of Cos Cob Elementary School in Greenwich, Conn., admitted to the intentional application of left-wing bias, which informs both the hiring practices and the curriculum of instruction at the school.
Education officials have long used coded language to couch their Marxism-based ideologies in academic jargon with terms like “equity,” “differentiation” and “project-based learning” that, in reality, do little but erode the core foundations of fact-based instruction and performance-based assessment.
Boland claimed that “logical” thinking is “progressive” by nature, and argued that schools ought to cultivate in students certain habits of thought.
“You’re teaching them [children] how to think. That’s it,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what they think about. If they think about it in a logical, progressive way, that becomes their habit.”
“So, you kind of like, gear them to think in a more liberal way?” the Project Veritas interviewer asked in response.
“Mm-hmm,” Boland affirmed before noting that the political education has to be done subtly.
“Believe it or not, the open-minded, more progressive teachers are actually more savvy about delivering a Democratic message without really ever having to mention politics,” he said.
Most education, according to Boland, is non-verbal, meaning that students must simply be taught to adopt a progressive style of life, which will secure their partisan support in a deeper and more enduring way.
“So, it’s subtle,” he said. “They [the teachers Boland hires] will never say, ‘Oh, this is [a] liberal or a Democratic way of doing this.’ They’ll just make that the norm—and this is how we handle things, it’s subtle … That’s how you get away with it.”
According to the school administrator, the political nature of the publicly-funded school demands that he hire certain demographics and avoid hiring others.
“Protestants in this area [of Connecticut] are probably the most liberal,” Boland said.
“But if they’re Catholic—conservative … You don’t hire them,” he added. “If someone is raised hardcore Catholic, it’s like, they’re brainwashed—you can never change their mindset.”
