"What was done to Rabbi Shifren...will be remembered with shame in this nation. 'Kill Your Teacher' must be read to understand what has happened to our once great California School System..." Lupe Moreno, President, Latino Americans for Immigration Reform, City of Santa Ana, Library Commissioner
Teachers like Rabbi Nachum Shifren, who wrote the book: Kill Your Teacher - Corruption And Racism in Los Angeles City Schools are driven out of the system. His account of attempting to educate classrooms full of belligerent hooligans is all too common. I know because I have received hundreds of emails over the last couple of years (too many to count after 20 years) with the same theme: The school district honchos turn a blind eye. Political correctness trumps learning and even in Rabbi Schifren's case -- death threats and burning down his classroom- the rancid system simply pulled the rug out from under him.
The district in which he taught was primarily black and Mexican students. It didn't take long for the bigotry to rise to the top:
"At some point, community "activists" started doing their malevolent thing, dredging up archaic visions of classic Jewish/Black antagonisms and issues of divisiveness. In response to breakdowns of classic discipline, non-cooperation, uncouth behavior or language, the issue of race and division continually surfaced. "Why you always wanna keep the Black man down, Shifren?" was an oft-repeated refrain usually heard after a low score on a test or report card. I'm not trying to keep anyone down. If you'd do your homework, your grade would be higher." (pg. 18)
Of course, the responsibility for failure is not the fault of the student. Any politically correct "justification" will do to continue passing dumbed down students along through the system. Common as rain in Hawaii. Rabbi Shifren sums up this putrid racket promoted by self serving politicians and the teachers unions:
"Several years ago, I taught at Sereno Middle School. One of my students, a Latino, was becoming a severe problem to the extent that his behavior had severely impacted learning. When it became clear at the mid-semester evaluation that he would not pass my class, he reported to the principle that I had threatened to shoot him with a shot gun! This would have been laughable if it were true. But the bitter truth was that, as the principal, Mr. Moreno pointed out to me in his office that day, special "terrorism laws" required that I be removed from my position until the allegations could be investigated. Aside from the fact that during the "investigation" I would be laid off without pay, the most egregious factor at play here was that the student's family was here illegally! My life and ability to support my family had been jeopardized by an illegal alien, with the backing of the District.
"No amount of overstatement can be used to describe the absolute anarchy in our schools from masses of foreign students, principally from Mexico, that are tying our hands with a myriad of programs designed to bring them up to speed with their grade level. Bilingual education is as much a failure as it is a fraud. In nearly all cases, the families are here for economic reasons that have nothing to do with assimilation into American society.
"Chicano activists abound, and are there to encourage the flood across the border. Groups like Aztlan and Mecha literally preach to these illegals that it is WE, the White establishment that owes them free education, housing and a whole host of other gratuities. Actually, they are told, the "reconquists" (reconquering of Southwest United States) is in full swing, so efforts to learn the host language and culture are unnecessary. Furthermore, since our country has an institutional racism (their claim) toward Latinos, they can only use confrontational politics in attempting to wrest control from the controlling population." (pgs 41-41)
Let me add that these illegals are so ignorant they have zero understanding of one very important historical event: The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which brought an official end to the Mexican-American War (1846-1848); it was signed February 2, 1848:
"Under the terms of the treaty negotiated by Trist, Mexico ceded to the United States Upper California and New Mexico. This was known as the Mexican Cession and included present-day Arizona and New Mexico and parts of Utah, Nevada, and Colorado (see Article V of the treaty). Mexico relinquished all claims to Texas and recognized the Rio Grande as the southern boundary with the United States (see Article V).
"The United States paid Mexico $15,000,000 "in consideration of the extension acquired by the boundaries of the United States" (see Article XII of the treaty) and agreed to pay American citizens debts owed to them by the Mexican government (see Article XV). Other provisions included protection of property and civil rights of Mexican nationals living within the new boundaries of the United States (see Articles VIII and IX), the promise of the United States to police its boundaries (see Article XI), and compulsory arbitration of future disputes between the two countries (see Article XXI).
Militant, hot-button America hating groups like LaRaza, Aztlan and others, ignore the fact that THEIR government ceded over the lands described above in the treaty. The photos we've seen over the years of Mexican males grasping their genitals and humping (I walked by them doing it at the state capitol in Sacramento) yelling: "You stole our land. You get out" and "Equal Rights for all immigrants" is a bald faced lie. These crude, juvenile exhibitions are carried out by stupid mobs who are being manipulated for a political agenda far beyond their understanding.
What educators like Rabbi Shifren are talking about is educating America's children. No matter how painful the raw truth is, it must be faced and action taken because we have lost two generations of kids. Adults who can't make change at a register without the computer telling them the amount. Who know nothing about the history of our constitutional republic. They do know where to get an abortion at 12 so their parents won't find out, but they can't find Iraq on a world map.
Rabbi Shifren has written many outstanding, and terribly sad and tragic columns for Newswithviews; his archives are here. He is running for a seat in the California State Senate (District 26). I hope you will take the time to study his platform, his experience and his desire to see California's children get a real education.
America used to have the finest school system in the world. Now, public schools are nothing more than government indoctrination centers. Many years ago, I wrote a column titled, When are parents going to fix education? The only thing that has changed is the numbers going south. While there are tens of thousands of fine educators like Rabbi Shifren, there are tens of thousands of teachers who are so under educated, they couldn't find gas at a filling station. They are products of the same dumbing down system they now teach in.
Parents continue to vote the same politicians back into the state houses who refuse to (1) boot the federal government out of their schools; (2) nullify the influence of the teachers unions; and (3) remove all social indoctrination programs. I wrote this news item back in May 2004. The influence of sexual deviant recruiting operations on school campuses has grown because parents are either too busy or simply don't care. Schools in California must now force the celebration of sodomy. That's right. Your adolescent son must now be taught that having sex in another male's rectum (sodomy) and playing in his feces is to be celebrated.
In 2007, California's formerly steroid pumped, morally bankrupt governor signed a law to further inculcate toxic propaganda into California's schools:
and 'Dad' banished by California
Schwarzenegger signs law outlawing terms perceived as negative to 'gays'
"Mom and Dad" as well as "husband and wife" effectively have been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls rest rooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose. "We are shocked and appalled that the governor has blatantly attacked traditional family values in California," said Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute.

Before all the social engineering and extremist eco/greenies groups, and illegals with their screeching and stealing of state resources for education, America's children received a real education. Before Gay Porn as Required Reading in Ill. High School, Media Silent, America's children attended moral learning institutions. Before all this rot being pumped into children six or eight hours a day, America's children went to school and learned how to read, write, do arithmetic, science, home making, shop and phys ed. There was no instruction on how to put a condom on a cucumber or raunchy porn disguised as sex ed. For part two click below.

How activism works:
Supporters of the recall accused the board of voting to spend more on administrative fees and less and less in the classroom. For example, the previous superintendent was earning more than $250,000 a year -- twice the state average.
"The recallers say they are energized by the arrogance of power by the school superintendent and what they see as his rubber-stamp school board; a waste of resources; inattention to the needs of parents and students. They argue that the district spends its money on unnecessary things, and would be better able to meet the well-recognized overcrowding problem if they were more focused on education rather than on bureaucracy-building. They raise some serious points.
"The official recall notice served to each board member says: "You are recklessly spending tens of millions of dollars on an administration building and over $100 million for a single high school next to a dump - while our schools are in dire need of repair and our students are crammed into substandard portable classrooms with non-functioning restrooms. Your reckless deficit spending has created a self-inflicted, multimillion-dollar budget crisis that puts our children at risk and resulted in massive program cutbacks - severely diminishing the quality of education."
