The Iowa Teachers’ Union (Iowa State Education Association) promoted the Black Lives Matter At School event late last month, encouraging teachers to request a poster for their classroom to “celebrate” the week.

Teachers are encouraged to “take action for racial justice in the classroom!”

The website that pops up if the code is scanned is a toolkit for BLM at School Week of Action.

“Across race and place, educators, parents and allies are coming together to ensure that every black student and educator can live, grow and thrive with support, love and joy. The goal of Black Lives Matter at School is to spark an ongoing movement of critical reflection, honest conversation, impactful actions in school communities for people of all ages to engage with issues of racial justice.”

We’ll share stories on these resources throughout the next day or two, now that we know the Iowa State Education Association pushed this agenda inside Iowa classrooms.

And remember, the ISEA calls a bill putting cameras in classrooms “outrageous and dangerous.”
