Leftist Indoctrination In America’s Schools

school classroom students kids education regulationAmerica’s schools are being infiltrated by the radical left. Every generation since 1928 has gotten steadily more liberal, with each generation being more liberal than the previous. This is a direct result of left-wing indoctrination in America’s schools, and it is not a coincidence.

The modern-day indoctrination of America’s youth was sparked by the No Child Left Behind Act, which was signed into law by President Bush back in 2002. The act was the most major expansion of federal control over K-12 education in America’s history at the time that it was passed. While this did not necessarily result in the immediate indoctrination of America’s youth, it laid the groundwork for the continual expansion of federal overreach in America’s K-12 schools, and is largely recognized as the turning point away from an education system that was controlled at the local level to the federalized K-12 education system that America has today.

Modern-day left-wing indoctrination in America’s schools now largely relies on the Common Core Standards Initiative, which was adopted by 43 states in 2014. The initiative sets uniform standards that every single K-12 student and teacher in states that have adopted the initiative are forced to adhere to. This began the destruction of individuality in America’s public schools. The primary goal of Common Core is to create a generation of Americans that are fed the exact same information in the exact same manner throughout the entirety of their childhood development. Students are forced to accept the information uniformly provided to them without criticism, or their grades will suffer severely. This is, by definition, forceful indoctrination.

Today, the only states that do not follow the Common Core Standards Initiative are Alaska, Indiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Every child that attends public K-12 schools in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming are being taught a curriculum established by the Common Core Standards Initiative. They are being forcefully indoctrinated.

It doesn’t stop there. When Common Core K-12 education is completed, liberal colleges are waiting to complete the indoctrination process of your child. According to a 2016 study of 7,243 professors at America’s top 40 colleges, 3,623 professors are registered Democrats (50.02%), whereas just 314 are registered Republicans (8.67%). This means that Democrat professors at America’s top colleges outnumber Republican professors by a ratio of nearly 12:1. 

Proof of left-wing indoctrination in America’s schools can be further seen in data on young Americans. According to a 2018 Gallup poll, just 45% of millennials view capitalism positively. To the contrary, 51% of millennials view socialism positively. This means that young Americans largely support socialism over capitalism. These views conflict with the views of every single other generation of Americans. Just 28% of the Silent Generation, 30% of Baby Boomers, and 41% of Generation X view socialism positively. 

Furthermore, in 2020, 69% of American college students were estimated to have voted for Joe Biden, while just 19% of American college students were estimated to have voted for Donald Trump. This gap is larger than any other gap among any age group, making current American college students the most liberal age group in America. This, again, is not a coincidence, and is a direct result of systemic liberal indoctrination in both the K-12 education system, as well as college campuses.

With Joe Biden in the White House and Democrats in control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, Democrats now feel emboldened to further indoctrinate America’s youth. 

Biden’s Department of Education recently proposed using millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to provide grants exclusively to American schools that teach Critical Race Theory and The New York Times’s 1619 Project. Countless schools across America already utilize these radical, dangerous projects in their curriculum, and the Biden administration wants to provide American schools that haven’t already implemented these ideas into their curriculum with a direct financial incentive to do so. 

Moreover, radical Democrat states such as California and Oregon are even going as far as waging war against the concept of math. The Oregon Department of Education recently told teachers to register for a training course that calls for “dismantling racism in mathematics.” The course argues that “white supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms” because “the focus is on getting the right answer” and students are “required to show their work.” Democrats in Oregon believe that math is racist because you need to get the answer right and show your work. To quote the course toolkit, “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict.” In November, the California Department of Education will vote on whether or not to require teachers to take the same course referenced above. 

Democrats across America are on a conquest to further indoctrinate your children. Do not allow them to succeed. With Republicans out of power at the national level, only you can stop the leftist indoctrination in America’s schools.

Instead of stupidly blaming guns and railroading mental illness. Society should have been blaming the public indoctrination and conditioning machine that it pretends education.
The gun does not create a murderer, but indoctrination and conditioning are a guaranteed time tested recipe for creating violence and murderers. Now throw in a large side of bullying, collectivization, and false history then it’s only a matter of time before one snaps and seeks revenge.
There’s a reason these people return to school to commit such evil deeds.
Honestly what did we actually think would happen?
It should’ve been very apparent that something went horribly wrong within the public education system when the bloodshed and loss of life first started. Instead society sat back and let the deluded media fuel the fire by blaming inanimate objects and railroading mental illness.
There is no mental illness which justifies the act mass murder that’s called psychopathy and psychopathy is not a mental illness.
A rising tide of mass murderers amongst the general population is not a gun problem it’s an moral erosion problem caused by indoctrination and conditioning.
Start punishing the public institutions and parents of these adolescent monsters and watch how fast it all stops.
The core causes to this problem are public indoctrination parenting, and society’s all around moral erosion.
When Law and legislation fails to deter regular crimes and criminals. How stupid are we for thinking that law and legislation will deter the crimes of mass murdering psychopaths?
Law and legislation will always fail to stop or deter these crimes just like the law failed to stop or deter the rest of the so called crimes that plague society. Where was the law when Hitler was committing industrialized genocide? Where was the law when our own government was engaged in genocide? Where was the law in stopping any act of mass murderer?
One that has justified ending multiple innocent lives will never be beholden to law period.
It used to be universal natural fact of life to all that criminals will obviously never abide by the law.
Our society and institutions of governance have completely and utterly abandoned all reality , morality, and common sense in the name of feeding its own addictions to denials and delusions.
Our nation has become a country ruled by the finest laws of ignorances delusion can buy.
It’s time to come back to reality and
The violence and murder that we all see today are a testament to why the powers of government should never be allowed to meddle within any aspect of education.
It’s time for the citizenry to kick the government out of such private aspects of life
The government never had any constitutional business meddling in such aspects of life to begin with.
Real education begins by learning to think for oneself, something governments fear greatly and will do anything to stop.
Progressivism and collectivism are a disease upon humanity that will inevitably destroy everything it touches if allowed.
Real conservativism is not a bad thing, but today’s conservatives are nothing more than a bunch of lemon socialist selling the con of a limited government only limited to serving the greedy wants of the rich at the expense of all but their own.
A*es + Elephants = 1% Party.
Both political cancers have went above and beyond the realm of failure. Neither deserve to further wield the powers of government at this point.
I am sick of this totalitarian socialist sh*t and politicians waging war against a constitution they swore to uphold, preserve, and protect yet do absolutely nothing but seek to destroy with impunity.

If there is no correct answer in math problems, then let’s fire everyone at the IRS–no need to audit taxes when “there’s no correct answer”.

As per the “program”, going into the schools to mold and influence the young, is the basic step down the road to control of the population….no past dictatorial government has NOT done this. Local schools can reverse this process, but it will take guts and perserverence….reject federal funding and go it alone. Reject the teacher’s unions ploys and incentivise teachers to leave the union and be a teacher of children. This means more local costs, and trouble with the boards of education, PTA and the like….but if enough parents take the stand, foot the costs, and preempt the attack, they will save their children, their community and nation. No one says defending the truth would be easy or cheap. But is can be done….has been in the past. The other option is to send our children to faith based schools who do not suffer from the political pressures of being forced to walk the walk of divisiveness, equity, critical race theory, and all the rest. When the public schools are vacated they will cave.

Seems to me that those students believing socialism is better than capitalism are just plain lazy. They want the government to take care of them. In addition, they really have no concept of what the consequences are. It’s up to parents to straighten things out, or grandparents if necessary.

Unfortunately, those parents and grandparents don’t know any better themselves as they have been indoctrinated with the same crap for their entire lives also. They don’t know what they weren’t taught in order to correct or override the information their children/grandchildren are coming home with. The teachers who have been mal-educating students in America have been spewing their garbage and propaganda since they started graduating from our colleges and universities in the radical 1960s. Until, or unless, conservatives and Constitutionalists are willing to (or allowed to) go into the teaching professions, this indoctrination will continue unabated.

Those in power obviously have either forgotten or simply don’t care that our children go to school to be educated NOT indoctrinated! Educators need to stop forcing their opinions on naive children!

Remove the racism from mathematics? Sorry folks, but I had to reach for the air sickness bag with that one.
Requiring a “right answer”?
Obviously a bias against kids who don’t know the correct answer.
We can’t have that. Equality, you know.
Wonder how my Organic Chemistry prof. Would have reacted if I said “I know, Dr. G., we don’t mix these two reagents together for fear of violent explosion, but, hey, that’s just your opinion. Doesn’t my opinion matter? Yours may be a biased opinion.
My wish?
Take the leftist polluters ruining the minds of our kids to the top of a 20 story building and have them jump off one by one, just to show that Newton was wrong about the Law of Gravity.
After all, he was just some white English dude. What did he know?

Anyone want to get in line to fly in planes they design or drive over bridges they construct using the ‘new’ math? Even ancient societies knew it was necessary to come up with accurate calculations to build their pyramids and massive cathedrals.

Bushes probably don’t realize that Washington DC organizing public schools is stupid. Innocence however, is not a good excuse for continuing to ramp up organizing which translates to power. Curriculum and methods need to be a teacher/parent process at the individual student level. One step at a time is the way learning works. Indoctrination to give DC power over the schools is superfluous. Teachers should be paid. During the pandemic, teachers unions have shouted out how self-interested teachers have become. But it did not just happen this year. It happened because organizing (for power) became the obsession. Helping children learn skills step by step fell by the wayside. Public funding has become the organizers dream. Unions and curriculum coordinators are sucking up the money. Funding does not equal learning.

As a former educator (35 years as a band director), I found this article to mirror the thoughts I had during my entire career. When I began teaching in 1977, Iowa was #4 in education. When I retired in 2012, Iowa was #26 and dropping. My career began during the disastrous Carter administration and the establishment of the failure known as the US Department of Education.

I would venture to guess that the #1 school system in the country today would rank around #46 under the standards of 1960. I attended public schools in California during the 1950s and ’60s when they were consistently ranked #1 or 2. I believe Calif is now consistently ranked in the bottom 5. We learned more by the time we reached Jr. high (7th/8th grade) than people know after coming out of 4 years of college today. The only things they ‘know’ for sure now are, that it is perfectly normal for little Susie or Johnny to have two mommies or daddies and the climate is under the complete control of humans so it is up to us to ‘fix’ it. And now, what they will come out ‘knowing’ is that 2 + 2 can equal 5 if you want it to.
We’ve fallen (been shoved!) into ‘the rabbit hole’ of Alice in Wonderland and I fear we won’t ever find our way back out.

There are two fabulous careers that men shy away from. Nursing and Teaching. Nursing because of the stigma and teaching because of the low pay. I spent 28 years as an Army Nurse and retired as a LTC – pay, benefits and retirement are not bad and much better than most. Free health care and pharmacy…. But, you’re a minority in a woman’s world and they let you know it. Teaching is a different smoke – until we make teaching a valid career with pay and benefits we’re not going to attract the cream of the crop. Nursing wasn’t a calling to me at 35, it was a job and I was good at it. I liked doing it. Teaching is a calling for many like nursing but it’s a job and if you’re good at teaching it’s a very personally rewarding job. But personally rewarding doesn’t pay the bills and give you benefits. Until we pay teachers a descent salary we’re not going to get the right people in these jobs to educate our children.

Seven decades ago the Congress for Cultural Freedom set upon the United States to create generations of stupefied zombies who can’t think. Psychodelic drugs were deliberately and surreptitiously introduced into American society a decade later by Margaret Meade’s husband Gregory Bateson and Frankfurt School’s Theodore Adorno. Mind-altering substances like LSD and Mescaline were spread to college campuses by Timothy Leary, and Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters. Bateson, Adorno, and London’s Tavistock Institute were thus instrumental in creating a permanent subculture among American youth who then could be deployed like a battering ram against scientific and technological progress. Rock music replaced Beethovan while the indoctrination into John Dewey’s illogical thinking and New Math marked the end of America’s greatness which had been put under the thumb of people like George Pratt Schultz. Frankfurt School’s critical race theory, identity politics, and other outright perversions have been substituted for classical education. Many school districts have eliminated classical studies altogether without opposition from parents. It explains why it is so difficult to get the boomer generation to do anything about it. A majority of them just don’t have the moral fitness to defend Judeo-Christian culture that underpins scientific and technological progress.

Most teachers today and for years now, I find are more interested in padding their pockets than teaching the kids!! That’s why you find more often than not, teachers in a picket line, especially in these Demonrat ???? ???? controled states like PA, Michigan, New York and California. Back in the day when I was in school, it was a personally rewarding job for teachers. Today, it’s all about the all mighty dollar ???? This is the reason teachers aren’t in the schools, they like to use Covid-19 as an excuse as well. Makes me wonder, what excuse are they going to use when “Flu Season” is over??

I feel all Christian parents need to pull your children from the public school system. Maybe all Churches local missions needs to be to “save our children”. Help the parents in your congregations to pay for Christian School’s tuition or for Home School books…We have to stand against this Marxist, Socialism that is being taught as normal to our children. As Kirk Cameron said the other night, you can’t expect for 1hour of Sunday School to undo 5 days of Public School teaching.

Amen ????‍♂️ No Christian Child should be left in the care of a “Leftist / Socialist / Communist Ragime public school. I love the idea you came up with about the church congragation / Local Missions putting monies together to help those with school age children to get ???? books and whatever else is needed for “Home Schooling”. We have to tilt the ballance back to the favor of the Lord Jesus Christ.
