Anne Marie Waters – Our Best Hope for Education
My admiration and hopes for Anne Marie Waters are too vast to cover in one article, so I will focus on one of her less publicised policies…education, and the removal of extreme left-wing, politically-correct bias, being forced upon our young in schools today.
Incidents that I have first-hand experience of at my local primary school include:-
- Teachers regularly ranting about the evils of Donald Trump, telling children that he and his supporters are all sexist and racist. I consider this to be indoctrination.
- Unwanted school trips to mosques that many parents of all ethnicities are uncomfortable with. Out of 90 children, approximately 30 did not attend on the instance that I have in mind. The school sent out a letter to parents stating that children would only be allowed to ask questions during the trip that had been rehearsed in class prior to the outing. In my opinion, this amounts to censorship and removes the purpose of learning from the trip. If you are not allowed to ask the questions that you want an answer to, what are you exactly going to learn?
- Assemblies where children have been advised that the migrants in Calais are good, honourable citizens, worthy of our love and compassion. I have seen little or no evidence to support this in the media myself.
I would also note that little appears to be taught these days about Christian beliefs and British history, for fear of “offending” minorities. Both were the cornerstones of our native culture when I was a child and I feel genuine pain that my descendants will not experience life as I have known it, if we continue in the current political climate.
Anne Marie Waters offers hope for a brighter future, where British values can be preserved for future generations. Perhaps children might be taught Bible stories again in school in what is still fundamentally a Christian country.
Perhaps they might learn about past events that have made our nation truly great, moulded us into what we are today. Perhaps children might grow up proud to be English, Irish, Scottish or Welsh, rather than humbled and apologetic, with an enforced agenda of welcoming extreme diversity.
Anne Marie Waters gives me hope for better than I see today. Hope…such a priceless commodity! If a man has hope, he has a future. With hope, a person can achieve great things, with an expectation of better to come. Without hope, the downtrodden become weaker, helpless, perhaps give up and no progress is ever made.
