Kindergartners’ minds are ripe for woke indoctrination, California teacher Traci Allen suggested during a professional conference last month, footage of which made the rounds on Twitter Thursday.
“Kindergartners are natural social justice warriors,” Allen said while presenting at the National Association of Independent Schools’ People of Color Conference, a virtual gathering of educators and activists that took place from Nov. 29 to Dec. 3.
The educational establishment is openly grooming kindergarteners to become "social justice warriors." https://t.co/3K8pdRIX45

“I think if we just built on the mindset of a kindergartner, that is fantastic, you can get them to do fabulous things in the social justice realm,” she added.
- Allen went on to discuss the “Six Elements of Social Justice Curriculum Design for the Classroom,” summarizing the work of “anti-racist” education researcher Bree Picower.
- Other events at the conference include seminars and workshops titled “Educational Justice for Black Girls: A Call for Radical, Transformational Pedagogy,” “Master Class in Place-Based Education: A Context for Indigenous People in All Learning and Every School,” “Using a DEIJ [diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice] Lens to Make School-wide Decisions,” “Dismantling White Supremacy in Fundraising (This Is Going to Take More Than an Hour.)” and “It’s Cultural Authenticity for Me! How TikTok Provides the Blueprint for Modeling Cultural Authenticity.”
