NYC is allowing students to skip class to attend a “global climate strike”.

School districts in NYC will permit 1.1 million students to skip class for climate change.

If anyone wasn’t aware, there apparently will be a global youth climate strike this Friday. And bless the city of New York, they are making it a-ok for your kid to skip out of class to join the strike.

Climate change is one of the major altars that the Left likes to worship at and they want to get children involved in that worship as well.

The New York Post’s editorial board:

Called the move “out-and-out government sponsorship of a particular point of view”.

This view is totally correct. Would the Bill de Blasio and NYC school districts agree to let their students strike in support of gun rights? I have a very strong reason to believe that they probably wouldn’t.

But this allowable strike most likely won’t be limited to school districts in New York. Districts in Los Angeles and Massachusetts are working similar plans.

If I had a child in any school district that willing allows students to skip out of class to attend a climate strike, I would be absolutely livid. The education has been infected with socialist ideas for a long time but there is still some value in getting an education. Kids should be in school and not advocating for leftist talking points.

The goal of the global climate strike is:

Causing disruptions and getting noticed by political leaders who are in NYC for the United Nations Climate Action Summit 3 days later and the General Assembly meeting that follows it.

A noble cause to be sure but if the Left wants to make an impact on global policy, why did they need children to accomplish that goal?
