In school systems across the country, parents are fighting an uphill battle against local governments over the curriculum being delivered to their kids, from political indoctrination and activist training in-class to sexually-charged and age-inappropriate reading material. Our schools have become infested with violence and even sexual assault. Exceptional students have had recognition of their achievements withheld in the name of preserving others’ feelings. And when they have objected, parents have been dubbed “domestic terrorists” by members of federal agencies, and even subjected to arrest.
Ian Prior is a senior advisor at America First Legal and the author of the book Parents of the World, Unite!: How to Save Our Schools from the Left’s Radical Agenda. He joins this episode to discuss all the issues facing parents of students today, and the best ways to push back against a system that insists it knows how to take care of your kids better than you do.
