VOICES BEHIND THE BADGE
NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE

Yesterday I interviewed the founders of a new non-profit, VOICES BEHIND the BADGE. It was established this fall in response to anti law enforcement teaching in K-12 public schools. The group is an outgrowth of events in Portland, Oregon where riots and violence have occurred consecutively for over 100 nights. These events have negatively impacted the local law enforcement families, including their children attending public schools.

“Do you know what schools are teaching your children? Many teachers are on the frontlines with ANTIFA and the BLM movement. These same teachers are teaching your kids. There is an anti-police agenda to many conversations and lessons. 

The book Something Happened in Our Town is widely used in elementary schools. 

The anti-police agenda of many teachers sets up an emotionally unsafe learning environment for children of LEO’s and children who support LEO’s.

VBB calls schools to keep teachers’ personal politics out of the classroom and prohibit the display of any BLM propaganda on school property, including inside the classrooms, as well as on any staff member’s clothing or on personal vehicles that may be visible to students during school hours. This is the same as prohibiting teachers from endorsing any other political ideologies, candidates for public office, or ballot measures during school hours. 

When students feel misunderstood or targeted, they can feel anxious, angry, sad, and unsafe. This distracts them from learning. Often, they will experience social problems with peers that frequently lead to anxiety, sleeplessness, poor attendance, and therefore, greater impairment of their learning. 

VBB asks schools to pay special attention to the behavior of other students and to stand by your policies to not tolerate bullying or social cruelty because of a student’s support for law enforcement or their lack of support for the BLM movement/organizations. If such violations occur, we expect that you have zero tolerance for such behavior from students. 

VBB asks schools to establish protocols for this specific situation. Since political and other sensitive topics are commonly discussed during class sessions, we implore you to develop specific protocols for teachers and students on how to conduct unbiased, neutral, scientifically-supported, and fair discourse around controversial and provocative topics and that these protocols be shared with parents. 

VBB asks schools to put extra supports in place before and after discussions that may lead to anti-law enforcement rhetoric, BLM, protesting/rioting, Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC), and interactions with the police. 

VBB asks that schools to provide your staff with training on the topics of virtue signaling, micro-aggressions, identifying personal biases, and how to keep these issues out of their classrooms. Everyone’s common goal is to create and maintain a safe learning environment for all students in both virtual and traditional classroom settings. Regardless of any teacher, principal, or superintendent’s personal political stance or affiliation, all students have the fundamental right to learn in an environment free from bias.
