Far Left Social Justice Course Required to Get Teaching Certification at UNC-Greensboro

Did you think you could go into primary education without at least pretending that your intent is to brainwash kids with far left ideology? Not if you get your degree at UNC-Greensboro:

A teacher at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro requires students in her class to write an 8-page commitment to social justice — pupils who take her class because it’s a required course to earn a K-12 teaching credential.

An assignment in instructor Revital Zilonka’s “Institution of Education” class tells future North Carolina teachers that “by the end of the semester, you are required to write your own personal/professional commitment to social justice,” the syllabus states.

The class mandates a list of feminist and Marxist readings, and students’ “commitment” is expected to be up to eight pages long and delve into how they plan to advance social justice “given the new understanding you have by now about society and education,” the syllabus adds. …

Zilonka’s syllabus also tells students to Like on Facebook a slate of secular-progressive pages, such as the pro-LGBTQ Human Rights Campaign, Feministing, Million Hoodies for Justice, and the Brown Girl Collective.

As noted, the course is required if you want your teaching certification. Other instructors teaching it probably aren’t much better than Zilonka. The Pope Center notes that the course, which has been offered for many years, is “openly intended to push prospective teachers to adopt left-wing ideas.”

Regarding Zilonka’s own education,

Ms. Zilonka, an international student from Israel, has been living in the USA for the last 4.5 years. She got her Bachelor’s degree in Education in Social Justice Education and Peace Studies in “Seminar Hakibutzim” college of education in Tel-Aviv, Israel in 2009.

Then she got a Master’s in Bilingual Education from Boise State.

Currently, she is working on her Ph.D. in education, with concentration on cultural foundations at the School of Education in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Cultural foundations are an essential focus of cultural Marxists like those controlling the education establishment. The objective is to destroy those foundations.
