Minnesota School Shifts Focus From Traditional Learning to Social Justice and Racial Identity Politics

The public schools of Edina, Minnesota used to have an excellent reputation for academics – that is, until they adopted an “All for All” initiative five years ago, shifting focus from traditional learning onto racial identity politics.

“The Edina school district’s All for All plan mandated that henceforth ‘all teaching and learning experiences’ would be viewed through the ‘lens of racial equity,’ and that only ‘racially conscious’ teachers and administrators should be hired,” Katharine Kersten of The Weekly Standard said.

Reportedly, the school system’s obsession with “white privilege” begins in kindergarten, and the Highlands Elementary principal runs a blog for the community where she features pictures of Black Lives Matter propaganda, rainbow gay-pride flags, and protesters holding “Gay Marriage Is Our Right” banners.

But it’s not just the teachers who are political. Edina is the home of the Edina High School Anti-Fascists which caused controversy back in November after they made a threatening YouTube video directed at the Youth Conservatives Club.

“You have to see the group’s Twitter feed to believe it,” Kersten said.

Some recent tweets from Edina Antifa

Note: “Nazi” to a member of Antifa is generally applied to Trump supporters, and if you’re pro-life, they’ll likely compare you to the KKK.

“March For Life is basically a KKK hate rally,” Edina Antifa tweeted.

“Years ago, we fled Communism to escape indoctrination, absolutist thinking and restrictions on our freedom of speech,” Orlando Flores, a father who chose to remove his son from Edina High School said. “If we see these traits in our schools in America, we must speak out and oppose it.”
