Yellow Flag Programme - removing irish culture from schools

Yellow Flag Programme - removing irish culture from schools
yellow-flag1
The Yellow Flag programme for schools is an EU cultural initiative for schools funded by the EU Commissions - Asylum , Migration and Integration fund encouraging schools to abandon the promotion of the dominant culture in Ireland in favour of an intercultural identity on the basis that it is a form of racism to want to promote your own culture . 
 

Racism is a system of disadvantage and advantage based on the cultural/ethnic group to which you belong. The dominant cultural group have access to benefits that other cultural groups may not enjoy  

White settled people with a history of living in Ireland are classified as the dominant cultural group. The fact that this is the dominant group, means that this group holds greater power in setting cultural norms in the country.

Students can experience indirect racism by taking part in classes that give expression to only one cultural view point

- extract from Yellow Flag Programme


Changing the Dominant Culture within our schools is a key focus of the programme . There are 8 steps involved in completing the programme . Such steps include the establishment of a Diversity Committee and creation of a Diversity Action Plan .

Step number 7 talks about the need to change the dominant culture within our classrooms referred to as the 'hidden curriculum'  which it says "makes it easier for those groups to conform and thrive " . It states that teachers need to 'reflect on the hidden curriculum' , examine their own 'hidden biases' and work with pupils to change the classroom culture ,  rules and routines integrating different texts that reflect more intercultural learning. 


Step 8 , the final step involves teachers , pupils and school management establishing new policies for the school that will promote the new intercultural ethos and diversity for the school . 

On completion of the 8 steps , a Yellow Flag assessment team visits the school , meets with the Diversity Committee  , pupils , parents and teachers involved in the programme . On successful completion , the school is awarded the Yellow Flag usually presented by President Michael D or a government minister which it must renew every 3 years .

The programme has the support of many high profile activists involved in repealing the 8th amendment such as Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin and Katherine Zappone .

people should home educate their kids , far too much brainwashing going on in schools

Not much Diversity in Castleknock , Would really love a Direct Provision Centre to open there . Sure the locals would love it.

^
There is a big push now by the EU Commission to create an 'EU' Identity and Culture , the yellow flag programme is part of the push . Children are the easiest to influence and are being weaponized by the EU to advance this idea into the future . Surprised though that catholic schools are embracing this , the people behind this are the very same people who wouldn't think twice about shutting down every catholic school in the country .

IF this was your sister or daughter how would you feel . The UN and EU are to blame for this girls murder too , they told all these people to come to europe and continue to do so even if it means people are killed and murdered , to them it doesn't matter so long as they get their New Europe or "paneuropa" . And all these so called human rights activists working for all these migrant NGOs are also to blame for this girls death , so long as they can feel better about themselves

rule 5.1.4 of the FAI governance handbook says .. "the Association shall require that its Members be and remain, neutral in matters of politics and religion" ... surely aligning yourself with a trade union is a breach of that rule https://www.fai.ie/sites/default/files/atoms/files/FAI%20Handbook.pdf

fundamentally , unite is a political movement , it lobbies for political changes on a range of societal issues , so Rovers is involving itself in politics by partnering with it .

the selling point to parents is that is just fun educational tools to help their childs education . the real motive is recruitment . gradually they will introduce the child to Unite and get the child involved over time in its activities , before long parents have a full blown communist on their hands and once someone goes down that road its very hard to get them back.
