WATCH: Foxx Berates "Woke Kindergarten"

WASHINGTON – Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) spoke on the House Floor to call out "Woke Kindergarten" for presiding over seismic drops in reading and math scores while using $250,000 in taxpayer money to indoctrinate students.

Chairwoman Foxx's remarks as delivered:

"At a San Fransisco Bay-area school only 16 percent of students were reading at grade level and only 8 percent were proficient at math.
"The school spent $250,000 in taxpayer money on a group called 'Woke Kindergarten,' 'to help boost test scores for some of the country’s lowest-performing schools.'
"But after two years with 'Woke Kindergarten,' students’ scores are worse. Now, only 12 percent are reading at grade level and fewer than 4 percent are proficient in math.
"There’s more. The head of 'Woke Kindergarten' is on record wanting 'a world free of the U.S. empire'; believing space aliens are oppressed; and supporting 'a free Palestine from the river to the sea.'
"A teacher who questioned the program has been put on leave.
"I wish this was made-up, but it’s real and sadly encapsulates so much with what is wrong with our education system."
