Million-dollar program turns students into Obamacare shills

Million-dollar program turns students into Obamacare shills
 
Leftist indoctrination has become so ubiquitous within the American public school system, students themselves are now feeling pressure to themselves become propagandists for the progressive cause.
Such is the case with a nearly $1 million program designed to ensure Los Angeles teens present a rosy portrait of Obamacare outside of school.
According to the L.A. Unified School District, the project will result in students “trained to be messengers to family members.”
A spokesperson for Covered California, the state exchange responsible for a total of $37 million in grants to promote Obamacare, said she has “confidence” that, through this initiative, students will be “successful in reaching our target population, which includes family members of students.”
Exposing teens to a one-sided, misleading view of a law so nebulous even its supporters do not understand it is an unconscionable misappropriation of school resources. Already taught factually incorrect and highly prejudicial nonsense from the earliest grades, this audacious program serves to raise that already towering bar.
District spokesperson Gayle Pollard-Terry issued a written statement calling participating students “part of a ‘pilot’ program to test whether young people can be trained as messengers to deliver outreach and limited education,” later explaining “funding will come based on performance.”
Larry Hicks, another LAUSD spokesperson, elaborated on the particulars of the agreement.
“At a minimum, grantees will be required to submit to Covered California monthly, quarterly, and annual reports on their activities towards agreed upon outcomes,” he said. The district must submit additional reports should progress fall short of expectations and the entire initiative will be under the purview of field monitors.
I have long contended traditional parents must become engaged and involved in their children’s education, considering the surreptitious nature with which teachers and administrators often disseminate leftist talking points. Hopefully hearing a child offer a half-baked defense of an indefensible law at the dinner table will be the wake up call these well-intentioned parents need.
