Teacher's deskA faith-based Maryland university is strangely offering a Master's degree in social justice for future K–12 teachers.

Loyola University Maryland, a Catholic university, now has a Master's degree program with a focus on "curriculum and instruction for social justice."

Stacy Washington, a conservative activist with the National Advisory Council of Project 21, believes that the program is a waste of time and money.

"None of these social justice garbage concepts will be on the SAT or ACT that kids need to score well on to get into a good college,” Washington stressed. “And none of these things will help them be prepared for a secondary education beyond just basic knowledge."

Washington points out that, when compared with international students, students in the United States continue to fall behind.

"And I believe it's a direct connection to teacher's getting Master's degrees in subjects that have nothing to do with their core mandate of teaching kids how to read and write and think – and history and doing math."

Washington maintains that parents with children in public schools need to be fully aware of what they are being taught and ask their teachers the hard questions.
