Apparently, parents are all suspects in Tennessee. And apparently, in the eyes of officials, government must oversee parents’ parenting to ensure that parents care for their children — and families must prove their innocence. With that in mind, authorities launched a totalitarian federally funded plan that shocked the state and all of America.
Faced with a massive public outcry of unprecedented proportions, Big Brother did hit the pause button on the radical program sending government bureaucrats to interrogate every child in Tennessee under the guise of performing a “wellbeing check.” However, state officials are not giving up yet. Great danger remains.
The scandal began last week, when the Tennessee Department of Education released a “toolkit on child wellbeing checks.” The announcement unveiled a totalitarian plan to invade every family home in the state on a monthly basis. Homeschoolers, private school children, and government-school children were all in the cross-hairs.
“Since we know many children have experienced adversity due to the pandemic, child wellbeing checks are a deliberate way all stakeholders in the community can help ensure the needs of our children are met,” said “Education” Czarina Penny Schwinn, as if “stakeholders,” rather than parents, were in charge of caring for “our” children.
The taskforce’s goals included to, on a monthly basis, “verify the wellbeing and identify needs of all Tennessee children” with “monthly child wellbeing calls.” Also on the agenda was to have “communities” (read: government bureaucrats) “come together to check on our kids and support the holistic needs of Tennessee children.”
It was not clear where Commissioner Schwinn got the totalitarian idea that children in her jurisdiction belong to the government — a noxious idea peddled by tyrants ranging from National Socialist (Nazi) leader Adolf Hitler to International Socialist leaders such as Mao and Stalin. Nor was the concept of “holistic needs” defined.
But according to Schwinn, who was appointed by RINO (Republican In Name Only) Governor Bill Lee, bureaucrats — not parents — are already doing a great job providing for the “holistic needs” of “their” children. “I am encouraged by the hard work and dedication of the Task Force and our districts to support kids and their holistic needs,” she said.
According to documents obtained by The Newman Report, these “wellbeing checks” include in-home interviews of children, preferably without parents around. The “checkers” are instructed to speak with the child “directly and as privately as possible.” Parents who refuse to allow it would be entered into a database for unspecified purposes. The goal is to have the government check on every child in the state, from birth to age 18.
