MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Middletown, New Jersey has been a hotbed in the ongoing “us vs. them” fight against New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s ongoing war against the unvaccinated. Now, according to Fox News, some teachers are saying the New Jersey Education Association, the state’s largest educator union is asking teachers to log their interactions with parents into an app called Reach, frequently used by progressive Democrat candidates and liberal grassroots efforts.

Drama teacher Jennifer Mess sounded the alarm.

“Having the audacity to back this type of presentation shows that the NJEA, NEA, AFT, and any other organization involved clearly does not regard educators as professionals or critical thinkers,” Mess told Fox News. “We literally teach our students to be able to look at information critically before making a decision.”

“This was a blatant effort to coerce, manipulate, and even track information on students and their parents,” Mess continued. “Anyone involved in this type of deception has lost their morals and purpose of education along the way.”

Reach was an app built specifically for progressive Democrat Congresswoman Sandy Cortez (NY).

“We built Reach for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign as a tool for ourselves after we realized traditional door-to-door canvassing methods were limiting who we were talking to and when we were able to effectively collect data in the field. Reach allowed us to canvass in the streets, subway stops, and community events in so many new ways that it revolutionized the way we connected with voters. This is a part of how we won, and we knew that other progressive people-powered campaigns could use it to win too,” the Reach website claims.

New Jersey State Senator Holly Schepesi posted the following today on her Facebook account.

“I strongly support vaccinations and indeed have caught heat for encouraging others to get vaccinated,” Schepisi posted. “However, to put our teachers in the untenable position of using their ‘trust and influence’ over children and their parents to persuade them to make personal medical decisions, and then encourage teachers through gift cards to input the names, addresses and vaccination status of these children and parents into a searchable political progressive database created for and by Congresswoman AOC’s campaign team, is an unconscionable breach of privacy and ethics, it is political canvassing using children’s data and it borders on criminal.”

According to Fox News, teachers were asked to keep running tabs in the Reach database when it came to conversations with parents. The top-performing teachers were even offered gift cards.
