1619 Project Creator Says She Doesn’t ‘Understand This Idea That Parents Should Decide What’s Being Taught’ In School

The 1619 Project Creator said she doesn’t understand the argument “that parents should decide what’s being taught” to their children in school on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

The 1619 project was created by Nikole Hannah-Jones, a writer for The New York Times, and it promotes the idea that America’s ‘true founding’ occurred when slaves arrived in the colonies, framing the history of the country around race and slavery.

“I don’t really understand this idea that parents should decide what’s being taught,” Hannah-Jones said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m not a professional educator. I don’t have a degree in social studies or science,” she said.

“We send our children to school because we want them to be taught by people who have a expertise in the subject area, and that is not my job,” Hannah-Jones said.

During a September debate, Democratic Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said parents should not make decisions regarding what schools teach their children.

“I’m not gonna let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions,” McAuliffe said. “I stopped the bill that I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

McAuliffe also vetoed a bill that would have required school districts to warn parents about educational materials containing “sexually explicit” content and require teachers to provide replacement instructional materials for any student whose parent requests an alternative.

“When the governor or the candidate said that he didn’t think parents should be deciding what’s being taught in school, he was panned for that, but that’s just the fact,” Hannah-Jones said. “This is why we send our children to school and don’t homeschool because these are the professional educators, who have the expertise to teach social studies, to teach history, to teach science, to teach literature, and I think we should leave that to the educators.”

  1. She is trying to play parents for fools (IGNORENT) blacks are the races, the most races race in AMERICA constantly using the race-card to cover up their wrongful actions and to gain ground over the white people, these races people need to be removed from their jobs they are corrupted attempting to turn white against white with the races bull and to promote black children against white children. There is NO slavery in this country and has NOT been in several generations, but has been in Africa black enslaving black for hundreds of years and still.

  2. She is just another leftist racist pos that wants to brainwash young citizens with mind altering propaganda. Get your kids out of public school ASAP. FJB

  3. I am going to guess she isn’t a parent either. Every parent had better be involved. If you don’t like what you see remove your children. If 4-5 parents remove their children . Then come together pay a teacher that isn’t willing to teach the garbage they want taught to teach all of your children. Help each other through this.
