A teacher who fronted a major recruitment drive for the Department for Education accused schools of “indoctrinating” pupils “from a very young age” in the wake of the EU referendum, it has emerged.
In an article penned for the Conservatives for Liberty group shortly after the Brexit referendum, computer science teacher Calvin Robinson said he was “not at all surprised that the majority of young people voted in line with a Left-wing agenda to remain in the undemocratic, or even anti-democratic European Union.
“Schools have been grooming children towards this decision for years.”
Robinson, who was featured prominently in the ‘I Chose to Teach’ campaign, observed that “[S]chools will talk about (see: preach) how important tolerance is, but the moment you express an opinion that isn’t in line with their thinking, you’ll see how short-lived their tolerance truly is”.
Cultural diversity; uniform opinions. Over 80% of secondary teachers vote Labour/Lib Dem, only 8% vote Tory. Reform? http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/06/15/left-dominates-british-schools-80-per-cent-teachers-backing-labour-lib-dems/ …
Left Dominates British Schools, with over 80 Per Cent of Teachers Backing Labour or Lib Dems -…
Surveys of teachers’ voting intentions prior to the General Election indicate that the Left dominates the British education system.
Robinson, a department head at St Mary’s and St John’s Church of England School in Hendon, north-west London, was moved to write his article by the “outright disgusting” behaviour of some colleagues during Britain’s referendum on membership of the European Union, when he observed “a very evident bias not only in their teaching practices, but in the way they present their arguments”.
This bias was not just limited to “the obvious party political biases of ‘Labour = Good, Tory = Evil’,” he noted – although he confirmed, “that does happen”.
