Earlier today we told you about a library lesson given to fifth-grade students at MOC-Floyd Valley, a rural Iowa school district. The students were told, among other things, if white people are the problem, only white people can be the solution.

You can read about that here.

The Iowa Standard contacted both the librarian, a man called Murray Andersen, and the superintendent, a man called Russ Adams. Neither responded though we were told the lessons quit being shown after our inquiry.

It is interesting because on Feb. 17, Adams was in Des Moines testifying against — AGAINST — House Study Bill 706. The proposed bill increases transparency in education. Adams told lawmakers in Des Moines during the subcommittee educators are “working like dogs” and “do not feel trusted at all” in the current political environment.

This seems like a good time to share the video that was shown to fifth-grade students in Adams’ own district during library:

HSB 706 would require educators to provide all textbooks, books, articles, syllabi, website links, outlines, handouts, presentations, videos and other educational materials for documentation, reviews and approval twice a year. Materials used in student instruction is required to be published on the district’s website by Aug. 23 and again on Jan. 15.

Adams said educators are “working like dogs to have additional requirements so that everybody has access to what they already have access to.”

“You may not intend to say you don’t trust educators, but I’m telling you in the political environment right now, educators do not feel trusted at all. That’s sad and it’s frustrating. I gave my whole life to that profession. I have people daily talking to me about leaving the profession. Please give thought to that.”

Adams noted two “concerning trends” in education while testifying against the bill. Prior to the comments above, which he said at the end of the meeting, he said there is a high sense that educators are not trusted and the bill is another example of that distrust.

He said the transparency requirements within the bill would be a very challenging task and take educators away from important time.

  1. Lack of trust exist because these very educators and their fellow Marxists keep insisting on subverting OUR kids against OUR wishes. It’s high time they learn that they work for us and they do not get to dictate what is acceptable or not acceptable.

    If they can’t deal with that simple and natural law truth, then get out of teaching or go charter a school where Marxism rules the roost.

    As for the politicians that enable these Marxists under the guise of free speech; have the guts to stand behind the subversion and pornography. You too will soon learn that you work for us.
