Don't be shocked about the private schools' leftist activism either
, however. I've noticed that an administrator at my alma mater has one of those left-wing signs perched behind her when she's on the Zoom calls from her campus office. I mentioned it to the headmaster, who is apparently called the 'head of school' now, and they acted like I was crazy for pointing out that these signs were political in nature. SignsofJustice.org is a left-wing organization. While I don't think teachers should be muzzled, I also don't think that children should be taught ideological politics so matter of factly. It certainly was not that way when I was in that school 10-15 years ago.
Yeah, I know. But even some parochial schools are jumping on the bandwagon. A friend enrolled her daughter in an all girls Catholic school (hint) and she said they were doing a racism assignment of some sort when she first enrolled her. She wanted her daughter in school instead of zoom because she has a disability of some kind.

Same- quality of schools is not a reason you move to Florida, and the low wages make it harder to afford a private school.

It's not really a bandwagon. I know of a now closed all girls Catholic school that had a social justice element to its curriculum 20 years ago. It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that a Catholic school that is serious about teaching about Jesus and how he treated those who were treated inequitably in society has a social justice element to its curriculum.
