“To progressives, the world is a fallen place — beset by racism, sexism, homophobia, and the rest — that must be transformed and made right,” noted “Big Agenda” author David Horowitz of the mindset. “This redemption was once called communism and is now called socialism, or ‘social justice.’”
Maryland’s Loyola University in Baltimore is the latest to indicate this. In the fall of 2018, Loyola will offer a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction to aspiring K-12 educators — who will then ostensibly pass down social justice initiatives to their own students.
Here’s why: “The curriculum and instruction degree has always been known as the master’s for teachers who want to stay teachers,” Stephanie Flores-Koulish, Ph.D., associate professor and program director, said on the school’s website. “Our newly designed degree takes instruction to the next level for educators and community leaders — and highlights social justice theories and how to enhance the lives of students and empower marginalized communities.”
