Is Your Child a Communist?

Image result for boy  turtleneck 1940s

Dear Parents, Emotional Support Adults, Supervisors, Guardians, etc.

It has recently come to our attention that many of our students are displaying signs of communism. We felt it was important to share things you should be on the look out for.

Excessive commentary on school district administrators, be that at the county or school level

Tendency to make jokes that no one understands, or to make references to things that no one has ever heard of. This may be an indication that they are reading too much.

Questioning teachers lesson plans, objectives, or content area focus. We are particularly concerned about students challenging American History lesson plans.

The wearing of turtlenecks and other fashion statements that might indicate a desire to not conform to our system of free markets, liberal democracy, and freedomness.

If you believe that a child in your domicile is communist, please let us know and we will have you contact the new Communist Resources Staff person.

Best regards,

Dr. Ned Flanagans, Superintendent.
