While many Americans have discovered radical left-wing indoctrination throughout American schools, few are aware of the true extent of the issue. In fact, whether you are in a liberal area or a conservative area, there is just a select minority of schools that are spared from indoctrination efforts.
Higher education has been largely overtaken by liberal ideologies for decades. For example, Marxist views or theories that the majority of Americans would quickly reject are tested on college campuses, where not just knowledge but also acceptance of said beliefs is often a requirement for success in coursework. But the indoctrination of America extends well beyond simply the materials at college. College itself serves as the culmination of the extensive indoctrination process. It is the point where the most extreme of all left-wing theories can be openly injected into the minds of America’s college students with minimal resistance. This is because the indoctrination of future America occurs incrementally, with radicalization efforts gradually increasing each time students move up a grade level. Under these circumstances, students are unable to properly identify indoctrination attempts because they have become numb to them due to incremental exposure, similar to how a frog is unable to notice when it is being cooked if the water is heated gradually.
High schools are a stepping stone to preparing students for college. Therefore, they also introduce some of the same liberal ideas prevalent on college campuses. Leftists have been able to infiltrate high schools by creating radical new curriculums that Democrats have allowed to be adopted at countless schools. Elements of critical race theory, the 1619 Project, Marxism, and extreme gender beliefs have all managed to make their way into American high schools via class materials, whether subliminal or obvious. These progressive teachings are deceptively provided legitimacy due to their previous adoption at higher educational institutions. This allows for the artificial presence of anti-American ideas at college campuses to be cited as the reason that anti-American ideas must be taught to high schoolers.
With colleges and high schools becoming full of left-wing principles, Americans could only hope that there would be mercy on the minds of elementary students. Sadly, that is not the case. Elementary schools around the country have been infiltrated by liberal beliefs, with children as young as five years old being introduced to gender, sexual, and racial theories. Even though they are clearly age-inappropriate, the viewpoints that originated at colleges have now made their way to the lowest levels of American education. Partners of the Marxist 1619 Project recently went as far as to brag that they have successfully distributed copies of radical materials to over 4,500 K-12 classrooms across America. Specific left-wing indoctrination efforts at elementary schools in every state can be discovered in this searchable database.
While the American people need to be informed of efforts to indoctrinate America’s youth, the only way to solve the issue is through legislative action. With that being said, leftists are also aware of this fact and have gone to great lengths in Democrat-controlled areas to enact policies that support their indoctrination attempts.
In Fairfax, Virginia, the leftist-dominated Fairfax County School Board is set to approve new changes to their Student Rights and Responsibilities guide at their next meeting on May 26th. Included in the updated version of the Fairfax SSR guidebook is the characterization of “malicious misgendering” as a “level 4 offense”. Under the new guidelines, K-12 students could be punished with suspension or expulsion for misgendering another student. It should be noted that other “level 4 offenses” are battery, assault, drug consumption, arson, and theft.
Democrats have also adopted policies in liberal areas that allow for the implementation of critical race theory and the 1619 Project into their education curriculums. Back in October, California became the first state to require that all public high school students complete a semester of approved “ethnic studies” to graduate. California’s statewide Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum also suggests that capitalism is a “system of oppression” because it fails to promote “equity” and includes other elements of both critical race theory and Marxism.
California is not the only liberal state facilitating the indoctrination of its children. Democrat-led Illinois adopted new “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading” standards in 2021. These standards essentially require K-12 educators to adopt a policy of uniformity in their classrooms and solely inform students about leftist perspectives and theories. Additionally, in the historically corrupt Democrat stronghold of Chicago, the Chicago Public Schools district directly partnered with the 1619 Project to distribute hundreds of copies of the 1619 Project to every public high school in the CPS district. The copies were delivered in 2019 and intended to be utilized “to help reframe the institution of slavery, and how we’re still influenced by it today.”
Last year, Democrat New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed A.B. 4454 into law. The radical legislation requires instruction about gender identity and sexual orientation at public New Jersey K-12 schools. As a result, New Jersey schoolchildren in first and second grades have been exposed to age-inappropriate materials. Specifically, according to a lesson plan published by the New Jersey Department of Education, “You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts. You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘boy’ parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both.” Again, the above claims are disturbingly being taught to first and second graders as young as six years old as part of Democrat-enacted requirements in New Jersey.
In a move that seems unfathomable to most Americans, progressives have gone as far as attacking math and proclaiming that mathematical teachings are racist. K-12 schools in Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, have supported policies targeting traditional mathematics. Seattle students are now being taught a math curriculum that claims “math dictates economic oppression” and that math is “used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.” Finally, the Oregon Department of Education recently distributed a course titled “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction,” which informed teachers about “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction.” The course urged teachers to stop forcing students to raise their hands before speaking. According to the document, “Requiring students to rаise their hаnds before speаking cаn reinforce pаternаlism аnd powerhoаrding, in addition to breaking the process of thinking, leаrning, аnd communicаting.”
Despite many significant issues compounding across the U.S. right now, Americans must continue to focus on education. If the next generation is allowed to be completely indoctrinated by leftist ideologies and teachings, there will be little hope for the future of the country.
