Biden Education Leader Praises Communist China’s ‘Magical Work’

The leader of Joe Biden’s education transition team praised communist China for the “magical work” it is doing.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Joe Biden’s education transition team lead has a long history of praising China’s school system—a system the Chinese Communist Party designed to indoctrinate students.

Linda Darling-Hammond, a Stanford University professor and the president of the California State Board of Education, has praised the Chinese Communist Party’s education system for its “magical work” in establishing a strong teacher-government presence in student life. In her 2017 book Empowered Educators: How High-Performing Systems Shape Teaching Quality Around the World, she explained the centrality of the teacher to Chinese students’ lives.

“Teachers in China are revered as elders, role models, and those whom parents entrust to shape the future of their children,” Darling-Hammond wrote. “In the Tao traditions of ritual, the phrase ‘heaven-earth-sovereign-parent-teacher’ is repeated and becomes ingrained in how people see themselves holistically governed and supported.”

The Stanford educator failed to mention that any other teacher-student “relationship” could result in imprisonment. The Chinese government continually cracks down on “Western values” in the classroom by sending state-sponsored inspectors to monitor teachers—particularly in higher education—for “improper” remarks. Communist Party leader Xi Jinping has said that China’s schools and teachers must “serve the Communist Party in its management of the country.”

Darling-Hammond was also pleased with the spending China has done on education while failing to recognize the inequalities of spending which create major achievement gaps in the country.

The Chinese education system is based upon rote memorization and not on developing critical thinking skills. During my years as a teacher of English to students from around the world I could always tell who had come from a system like that because they almost always struggled at first with an assignment that was not simple memorization.

Why don’t we go back to doing this with Communist sympathizers, if not actual Communists?
Remove her American citizenship and deport her to China without her ‘assets’.
Then ask her in 10 years how she’s faring.

Pack her Butt up and one way ticket on slow boat to China. Where the hell do these people get the idea that China is so great when the history is right there in front of them. She wouldn’t last ten minutes when the CCP dictates their BS to her and she is just a stepping stone for their use. WAKE UP PEOPLE your being suckered in to Communist

Joe Biden’s education transition team lead has a long history of praising China’s school system—a system the Chinese Communist Party designed to indoctrinate students. Socialist teachers here want to use the same Chinese Communist Party designed to indoctrinate American students to comply with Socialism.

This USMC says to send these Anti-American Socialistic teachers to HELL and teach true History, Math and reading, make the children’s learn to think to find answers. Socialisms think for you, Americans Think for themselves with commonsense.

American does not need someone telling them how to think along a party line.
