NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES DOESN’T UNDERSTAND A LOT: 1619 Project Creator: I Don’t ‘Understand This Idea That Parents Should Decide What’s Being Taught’ in School

The creator of The New York Times’ 1619 Project said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday she doesn’t understand the argument “that parents should decide what’s being taught” to their children in school.

 

“I don’t really understand this idea that parents should decide what’s being taught,” Hannah-Jones said on “Meet the Press.”

 

“I’m not a professional educator. I don’t have a degree in social studies or science,” she said.

 

“We send our children to school because we want them to be taught by people who have an expertise in the subject area, and that is not my job,” Hannah-Jones said.

And yet this woman who says she doesn’t know enough to be a classroom teacher thinks she knows enough history to determine the history curriculum for 50 million children.
