All Woke Up: Verona Schools seek ‘critical consciousness’

Empower Wisconsin | July 10, 2020

MADISON — Are you seeking “critical consciousness”? Are you longing to be broke and woke? 

Well, does the Verona Area School District have a deal for you. 

The school system is inviting school system residents to learn about what they can do to “disrupt predictable outcomes for marginaized student populations.” 

How? 

Critical consciousness, of course. 

Yes, it’s as ridiculously left as it sounds. 

It’s the “ability to perceive educational, social, economic and political oppression and to take action against the oppressive elements of society.”

Wow. That sounds radical, dude. 

Oh, it is. And Verona community members may take this “multiple day opportunity” to engage in “self-reflection and experiential based learning that will deepen their understanding of opportunity gaps in schools.”

Will there be white-shaming and plenty of white privilege talk? 

You bet. 

Workshoppers will: 

* Experience a deepened awareness of systemic oppression and why opportunity gaps exist

* Learn about inequities through personal narratives from facilitators

* Explore research-based strategies that can reduce implicit bias, stereotype threat and microaggressions

That sounds amazing. But there’s got to be a cost for all of this priceless woke wisdom. What’s the catch? 

No catch. But you’d better sign up fast. Spots at the workshops — beginning on Monday, July 27 — are on a “first-come, first-serve basis.”

Gov. Tony Evers would fine you up to $200 for not wearing a mask in a public space, but he won’t discipline a staffer for secretly recording a call — a la Richard Nixon — with Republican leadership.

All Woke Up: Canceling History

Tool of the Week: Controlling Tony

Of all the strained logic and absurd arguments Gov. Tony Evers has used to defend his statewide mask mandate, the “speed limit” defense most betrays the Democrat’s ignorance of the separation of powers.
