Reckoning

Please, make no mistake

New laws that attack our schools

Are not “for the parents.

That’s propaganda

Parents are often

Invited into the class

Lessons are often

Already online.

No. These laws show lawmakers

Who they can target

Thinly veiled attempts

To root out the teachers who

Teach real history

Because you see friends…

Education is power

Education is change

Education is discussion

Education is critical thinking.

Being educated

Shouldn’t be easy.

Education is a reckoning

And that should feel uncomfortable.
