Over the next few days and weeks, American children, teenagers, and young adults will say goodbye to summer and begin another year in the nation’s public schools and colleges. (It never seems to be long enough, does it?) Sadly, as our readers are well aware, the days where students only had to worry about reading ‘riting, ‘rithmetic, and the occasional bully are long goneâ€”now leftist agendas, religious persecution, political correctness, and even the occasional genocide sympathizer have been thrown into the mix. As if getting an education wasn’t tough enough…
You donâ€™t hear much about the curriculum these days because itâ€™s a done deal. That fight is pretty much over, and (outside of Texas and a few southern states) the Left won. So thereâ€™s no need for Barack Obama to even mention the content of education in his proposals, because that aspect is already in the bag. Obama instead now focuses on funding for education, which may seem on the surface like a non-controversial issue. Yet if the funding is going to an educational system that is rife with political and philosophical indoctrination, then it doesnâ€™t seem so non-controversial anymore.
And while it may be true that the radicalization of American schools of course long predates the arrival of Barack Obama on the national stage â€” absolving him of direct guilt in its implementation â€” he is quite obviously an enthusiastic supporter of the left-leaning curriculum currently in place, as evidenced by his earlier extensive career in academia where he championed leftist educational priorities.
But I’ll say one thing for the propagandists: they’re predictable. To help parents and students deal with the radical and ridiculous world of partisan education, here are our Top 7 Manifestations of Education Bias.
