An incident occurred in a small town, Burlington, Wisconsin. A young teacher was being asked by her students about the shooting of Jacob Blake, a young black man a few towns over. She turned it into a week-long lesson that was unbiased asking important questions like “how can we dismantle systemic racism,” and “what is the black lives matter movement?” She received huge amounts of backlash from parents claiming she was “indoctrinating their kids.” Many parents even wanted her fired for her curriculum. The teacher claimed it’s a human rights issue and should not be political, as even she voted for Trump in the 2016 election.
