NY state Sen Ruben Diaz Jr. “All your children are belong to us.” [Darleen Click]

Because we are the professionals and you’re not …

New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr. introduced a bill that would require parents of elementary school children to attend a minimum of four parent support classes. If parents don’t go, 6th graders won’t move onto 7th grade. [...]

The bill states one of the courses would be related to physical, emotional, and sexual abuse of children.

Employers would be required to provide one day a year of paid leave so working parents can attend classes.

  1. Leave NY to its death wish.

  2. - So now the Federal government is charged with going after vandalism cases? Notice that everyone is being Uber careful to avoid any litigation backlash. The irony, of course, is the students civil rights have probably already been violated over a prank. But the faithful gate-keeper of all that is Progressive, and maintaining a false sense of racist events in the country, the NYTrash, will jump on anything it can find in order to keep the racist bs alive for the black political plantation owners.

  3. Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr. should be required to attend all of them so he can explain whose idea it was and why the government needs to teach them so many things that they obviously don’t know.

    Public school is child family abuse.

  4. If you read the whole story on this parental requirement, it reads more like …

    “All your children will belong to us, if you parents continue to completely ignore their schooling.”

  5. Yeah, because NY is doing such a bang-up job teaching kids why not expand it to parents, too? Common Core for adults!

    Instead of assuming parents are competent until there is evidence to the contrary, this bill assumes all parents need their help. Seems that is the operating assumption behind so much recent government action: we’re idiots until we prove otherwise – er, nope, we’re just idiots, full stop. So we must be nudged into doing what they think is in our best interest. When did that happen?

  6. Meanwhile, New York teachers are having sex with students at school (note 1), and New York teachers are shooting up heroin in the elementary school bathrooms (note 2), and those who have been proven to be complete and utter failures at teaching are still being paid full salaries while sitting around watching TV and playing cards (note 3). So they get to tell parents how to treat their kids?

  7. this would be a good idea if it didn’t involve sending children to abusive fascist new york public schools what are infested with fat-ass illiterate grossly overpaid unionwhore cunts in the guise of teachers

  8. The bill seems as well to make a gesture of the state’s ownership of business funds, insofar as the state is content to mandate business must pay wages to non-productive employees away at state mandated course study of information parents have known instinctively since time began. But hey, in for a dime of fascist control, in for a billion.

  9. Neo

    There are already legal ways to address bad/neglectful/abusive parents.

    Diaz is coming from the typical Leftist position that all parents must be presumed “bad” and be taught The State approved way of raising kids by “the experts.”

  10. OT: Yanukovych impeached, flees, protesters enter and view his 350 acre estate [50°37'09.32" N 30°28'05.83" E].

    Obama takes credit.

  11. Can’t have the sires and dams preventing the farmers from harvesting their offspring, now can we?

  12. Obama takes credit.

    Geoff, can’t help but think the fact the Ukrainian Ground Forces stayed in barracks had something to do with it. But then, they were ignoring Hagel’s calls.

  13. There is a simpler, truer formulation — a sort of aorist at hand: Obama takes.

  14. Instead of assuming parents are competent until there is evidence to the contrary, this bill assumes all parents need their help.

    Well of course they need help because they are idiots. If they weren’t, they’d be upper middle class urban professionals of some sort or another who could afford to send their kids to private school.

    Like, I’m guessing, NY State Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr.

    By the way, as best I can tell, it started happening late 70s early 80s, but didn’t really being to take off until the 90s.

    At least, that’s when writer-critics like David Lebedoff, Christopher Lasch, and Mickey Kaus started talking about it.

  15. So what happens if the parents of a sixth grader refuse to go for several years? Do you end up with 16 year old sixth graders?

  16. I think you end up with a new state senator.

  17. Sixteen year old sixth graders aren’t all that unusual already, at least as reading levels go, so maybe not so much of a change after all.

  18. this would be a good idea if it didn’t involve sending children to abusive fascist new york public schools what are infested with …

    It’d be a fantastic idea if the parents took their child-raising responsibilities seriously. What New York is finally realizing is that most of the knuckle-dragging parents they are targeting are very far removed from their kid’s lives, to the point that teachers are expected to do the jobs the parents can’t or won’t do.

    Jobs like washing out mouths of juvenile delinquents who insist on calling girls ‘cunts’. Lacking good parenting, a juvenile delinquent allowed to continually call girls ‘cunts’ might accidentally slip into adulthood not knowing what a harebrained idiot he is.

    Can’t have that, you see.

  19. The NYC public schools need a battalion of old school nuns to smack those little monsters with rulers and make them do handwriting drills until their hands cramp.

    The Sisters weren’t too shabby with the headlocks, either.

  20. “The Sisters weren’t too shabby with the headlocks, either.”

    Noogies for knowledge?
