Still believe in public education?

A physics teacher has re-tasked his lesson plan to cover racism and "privilege, and social justice," exactly what one would not expect in a physics class. If public education wasn't doomed before, it certainly is now.
A high-school physics teacher has developed his own six-day curriculum that he uses to teach about institutional racism, privilege, and social justice as part of his seniors’ physics classes. The teacher, Moses Rifkin of University Prep in Seattle, has also been promoting the lesson plan to other high-school science instructors.
I never thought I would see the day when you couldn't trust a physics teacher to, you know, teach physics. I guess I grew up in a different world.
