Leftist Indoctrination In America’s Schools

America’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.
