The virtual classroom battles of the COVID era continue to be waged by parents!
Following my recent national appearance on Fox & Friends Weekend, PJTN had the opportunity to take our message local to the Nashville area where parents in nearby Rutherford County, TN were being asked to sign a pledge not to “eavesdrop” on their children’s online teaching sessions. Thanks to “woke” parents, there was a pushback. The Nashville Fox-TV affiliate called me for an interview. What could they possibly be teaching our children that would require such concern for a veil of secrecy? My one-word answer: Plenty!
I am now almost daily hearing horror stories from parents whose children are coming to them shaken by school content material coming at them from every direction—from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) curriculum to the 1619 Project and from instructions on how to “repent” for white privilege to radical far-left gender indoctrination. Most recently I heard from a distraught mother in Florida whose son had to read an Islamic fictional novella asking students to make a judgment call on the wicked intent of Israeli IDF soldiers shooting innocent Arab teens and piling their bodies in ditches at a border crossing. The not so veiled lesson message here is the vile attempt to indoctrinate yet another generation of potential young anti-Semites who can carry the hatred of Israel and the Jews throughout their lifetime.
Parents beware! Talk to your children about their learning experience and what they are being taught. Encourage open dialogue. And as much as possible, review course materials—whether online or in print. If you are unable to access your children's instructional materials, or textbooks, we want to hear from you. PJTN is here to equip you so that you can take back local control of your children's education and your local community.
As part of our 2020 campaign “Taking Back America’s Children,” PJTN is calling for “transparency” in educational materials K-12. We, as parents, must demand it school district by school district at the grassroots level.
PJTN’s national mandate is in total agreement with what Gov. Ron DeSantis is championing in Florida—to help establish an ideal system of civic education that is designed to equip a well-informed citizen, productively engaged in working for the common good and hopeful about democracy. We must reimagine the way we prepare young people to be full-fledged citizens. We must look beyond the classroom and imagine a full life of civic learning and practice.
“Taking Back America’s Children" is rooted in the call for a complete reform of America’s educational system. We have for decades allowed the elements of disinformation, biased propaganda, removal of American exceptionalism through the instructional absence of history and civics and the sheer forces of infiltration of our children’s textbooks by foreign forces wishing to destroy America to bring us to this point of a generation of young people who actually hate this nation. Entities such as Pearson Publishers have been among the top enemies of American education as is Common Core. The division and the violence we are seeing in America’s streets today all began with what our children were or were not being taught while we were not watching. We must revise the course in our educational system and create new generations of American leadership before it’s too late.
Vote your values in November! This is the most important election of our lifetime—the American educational system and national values will be impacted by the values in power in Washington. We need to reinforce the good, the great, and the God of our nation—not disgrace it, discard it, burn it down and start over.
As we enter into fall, a tremendous time of challenge and opportunity is ahead. PJTN must reach even wider with our national campaign and our messaging.
