THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE LARGEST PROGRESSIVE INDOCTRINATION MOVEMENT IN THE U.S.
RADICAL OF THE WEEK
Communist, domestic terrorist and co-founder of the Weather Underground Organization, William Ayers worked on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) with President Obama during the late 1990s. Through the CAC, Ayers and Obama invested 50 million dollars in the expansion of Theodore Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools (CES).
Bill Ayers’ organization, the Small Schools Workshop, which also received funding through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, was instrumental in the expansion of CES schools.
Ayers continues today to provide professional development training to CES educators through speaking engagements and workshops.
Bill Ayers quotes:
“Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”
“Teaching… urges revolutions small and large.”
“Education is the motor-force of revolution.”
“Capitalism promotes racism and militarism.”
“Queering Elementary Education is an important contribution to nourishing the ethical heart of teaching… a book for all teachers…” (from his written review of Queering Elementary Education, which offers essays on “locating a place for gay and lesbian themes in elementary reading, writing and talking”.)
