“Today I resigned from the school board.” From Teacher Wendy Bradshaw PhD

This is just so sad.

Poetic Justice

Teacher Wendy Bradshaw PhD from Florida handed in her resignation letter today. Her letter speaks the unspoken words of thousands of professional educators across the country. Her letter is the cry of what is in the hearts of teachers who, also, can no longer harm the children.

Please share her words so just maybe, we can once again have schools that love and tenderly care for the well-being of our most precious gifts – our children and grandchildren. #DoNoHarm

“Today I resigned from the school board. I would like to share with you what I gave them. Feel free to share it if it strikes you as important.

To: The School Board of Polk County, Florida

I love teaching. I love seeing my students’ eyes light up when they grasp a new concept and their bodies straighten with pride and satisfaction when they persevere and accomplish a personal goal. I…

One thought on ““Today I resigned from the school board.” From Teacher Wendy Bradshaw PhD

  1. YES, WE CAN!

    Yes, we can change the United States of America and/or Western culture every few years with new banners, labels, and meaningless slogans. We will call it progress and herald it as humanity’s mass awakening. Ah, the millennials! The gen-X-ers! A new enlightened generation. Bigger, better, smarter, and more progressive than the last. The youth of the nation will eat it up.
    “The Taste Of A New Generation!”

    Through mixed messages, abstract images, and outright deception we can make enough people confused, angry, or offended about ANYTHING we choose to create public controversy over. We can provide the opposing opinions then give the side of our choosing a platform and a loudspeaker. We can exchange holidays for exclusive special rights days. We can replace traditions with fads. Historical figures with current mainstream idols. Important symbols or artifacts with trendy icons. Over time, we can wipe out U.S. history, tradition, and culture all together.
    “I’m Lovin’ It!”

    We can replace prayers with mission statements and pledges. We can encourage a new pledge for our own success and celebrate every success of those who obey us. We can use repetitive oaths of tolerance towards things that were once considered intolerable and call them the great expectations for the things we demand of our followers.
    “Leave The Driving To Us!”

    The only people left to be offended will be the rapidly shrinking group of traditional United States Americans and their fanatical devotion to the country it once was.
    “Life Is Messy, Clean It Up!”

    -Traditional Americanism is being bred out of us. The United States of America is a boiling pot of mixed and mashed diversity and division. American culture is side lined and assimilation is admonished. Foreign influence is encouraged and designed to overwhelm the country through multicultural embrace. Cultures, values, attitudes, and beliefs clash. Unity among all is made impossible. Opportunity dwindles and prosperity for all but a few ceases to exist. Where being an American in America was once considered superior and people the world over strived for the freedom and opportunities America offered. People worked hard, played hard, and prayed hard. We enjoyed legitimate progress and abundant prosperity. Everyone had the opportunity to achieve and to fail, depending on the amount of time, effort, and motivation they committed to their dreams. Individual perseverance paid off and as a result, civilized society moved forward. We were proud to be American, not made to feel guilty because of it.
    “Be All You Can Be!”

    Today, far more than ever before in the history of our country, in order to get ahead you must depend on others to grant you opportunities and allow you to pursue your dreams. Your choices are made for you and from early on in life you face the societal label of being “At Risk” for failure. Once this label is applied, you are segregated into a special group and your path is made for you. Someone else has determined you have failed to achieve the standards set for you. You no longer have control over what the standards are or a choice in whether or not to meet them. This is NOT the traditional America in the United States.

    We are being transformed into a vast collective of dependent global citizens. If you can’t or don’t pay to play as a team, your benched. Go along to get along. There is no “I” in Team Global.
    “Just Do It!”

    We are a dying breed.
    The United States of America has all but lost what made it exceptional.
    “Can You Hear Me Now?!”
