I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for schools across the country. Raise up teachers for them, God, and allow those teachers to teach the academic truth, not woke political propaganda.

What’s causing the teacher shortage in America? One mom thinks that the woke policies being pushed are a big reason.

From Fox News. A Georgia mother is sounding the alarm on “woke” curriculum while various districts in the state and nationwide grapple with mass teacher shortages

Get involved in State Level Prayer with IFA.


Holly Terei, who has two children in Georgia schools, joined “Fox & Friends First” to discuss how the far-left’s push to implement the woke agenda has impacted already-existing shortages.

“It’s overburdening them,” Terei told co-host Todd Piro. “They didn’t sign up to have to implement all of these woke strategies within the classroom. They signed up to teach, and all of the SEL, social-emotional learning, the DEI that’s being forced on these teachers to implement in the classroom, they’re not psychiatrists.”

“This isn’t what they signed up for,” she continued.

There are hundreds of teacher vacancies in the metro Atlanta area. According to CBS 46, there are 307 in Fulton County, 252 in Gwinnett County, and an additional 350 in Dekalb County….

She also noted some teachers are still being forced to wear masks, a policy she described as “absolutely ridiculous….”

My first thought was “thank you teachers” for seeing the handwriting on the wall and
refusing to help this movement along and even maybe stopping it. It is so evil. God is
so God, so faithful. Let us rise up with more prayer and go for the head of this evil thing.
May God get the glory. Lord will you strengthen teachers and enable them to work for
doing your will. In the beautiful, glorious name of Jesus. Amen

We have three teachers in our family. The stress on them is enormous. Woke administrators make everything very hard. I pray for your continued peace for all teachers that want to do the right things in their classrooms.

Schools consolidated 20 years ago and shutdown schools to add children to the classroom and already that makes learning more difficult for the children. Lord, please help the children know the God-breathed miracles they are, Amen! In Jesus name.
