A Fight for the History Books
- By Tony Perkins - Family Research Council
"We oppose attempts to ban critical race theory and/or The 1619 Project," the National Education Association (NEA) said in a resolution late last week. At its 2021 annual meeting, America's largest teachers' union -- and largest union of any kind -- passed a slew of pro-CRT resolutions. They also approved "an already-created, in-depth study that critiques white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy ... capitalism ... and other forms of power and oppression." The resolutions amounted to a declaration of war on parent organizations that have sprouted up as sentinels against encroaching wokeness. The victor will determine the path of education for America's children and -- by extension -- our country's future. Finally, the battle lines are drawn clearly.

Save Our Children
- By Dr. Duke Pesta - The New American
The well-being of America’s children is being sacrificed on the altar of globalism and social justice. It’s time to get them out of the public schools.
Time is running out.
The progressive resetting of American public schools is about to be unleashed with full force on drowsy, preoccupied, and COVID-weary families from coast to coast and from preschool through high school. What we’ve seen accelerating for months now — rolled out in experimental and ham-fisted ways on virtual platforms and behind the fog of masked and socially distanced chaos — is about to become the primary way to “teach” our children and oversee “education” in government schools. New, transformative education mandates will also redirect the learning policies of the majority of private and so-called religious schools that take their pedagogical cues not from classical education or scriptural models, but from ideologically driven university departments of education, with their tenured armies of social justice-drunk educrats and administrators.
