Three Little Pigs Demonized By Leftist Educator. Stupid indoctrination?

Ellen Wolpert, a longtime “early childhood educator” in Massachusetts,
penned an article entitled, “Rethinking ‘The Three Little Pigs.’”

… one of the most fundamental messages of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ is
that it belittles straw and stick homes and the ‘lazy types’ who build
them. On the other hand, the story extols the virtues of brick homes,
suggesting that they are built by serious, hardworking people and are
strong enough to withstand adversity.

“Is there any coincidence
that brick homes tend to be built by people in Western countries, often
by those with more money? That straw homes are more common in
non-European cultures, particularly Africa and Asia?”

    What every body don't understand is the "PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY" is just not a western anomaly. Every body in the world understands "PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY". The only ones that don't understand this are the liberals, socialists and communists, because an irresponsible citizen is easier to control.

    The Left is working overtime promoting their ridiculous ideas...............

    I have always thought the 3 little Pigs emphasized reason and lauded hard work.....
    It certainly doesn't support the plantation mentality.

    Can't wait to see what she makes of "The Little Red Hen". The little red hen found some wheat seeds and asked the rest of the barnyard animals for help to plant, harvest, grind, and bake the wheat into bread. When they refused to help in each step of the work she said "then I shall do it myself"...and she did. When the bread was baked she asked "who shall eat the bread?" all the barnyard animals cried I will! I will!. The little red hen pointed out that they had refused to do any of the work and she ate the bread herself.
  • Sheila JanHopkins 2011/08/03 16:46:44
    Well that is obviously a selfish bird! LOL, my first thought was the Grasshopper and the Ants. She would have a field day with that one too.

    Meh... there are folks like this. I had a professor who believed that Curious George promoted imperialism & that Winnie the Pooh was racist/homophobic. Well, that and all children's stories are "ageist" - because a two year old is fully capable of reading Moby Dick.

    UH-- 'brick' and concrete homes were built in Haiti and China because they all collapsed during earthquakes and killed so many! Never been to Africa so I can't answer for them, but really, who gave this woman permission to teach kids? RESCUE THE KIDS FROM HER!

    seriously! where does she get that??? the moral of the story is and always has been if you work hard and plan well you will be better off than the ones who plan poorly. somewhat like the ant and the grasshopper.
    this "educator" is reading into a simple example story something that was never there to begin with. she has problems.

    And I always thought it showed that a good strong building would keep you safe where flimsier materials wouldn't. That survival depended on a strong work ethic and that playtime may have been fun, but it wasn't looking ahead to adversity.
