On the very same day that the Washington Post reported on Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul’s call for more school vouchers and expanded charter programs, the Associated Press exposed a frantic behind-the-scenes operation in Indiana to raise the grade given to a charter school run by a major Republican donor. As Rick Perry might say, “oops.” Paul’s call to expand vouchers and other “school choice” programs is not surprising. Right-wing political strategists have invested huge sums in recent decades to undermine public support for public... MORE

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association dedicated part of her radio show today to criticizing the National Education Association for its strong stance in favor of LGBT equality and gay-inclusive curricula. “I think that we can lay at the feet of the National Education Association the reason why this culture has been slouching toward Gomorrah,” Rios told her listeners. “The NEA has been for the last twenty years indoctrinating our children.” One of her guests, a South Carolina teacher and pastor named Ira Thomas, attended the recent NEA convention in Atlanta and...

Mission America’s Linda Harvey yesterday accused the National Education Association of pushing “non-factual, pro-homosexual propaganda” that will “harm” children across the country. “The nation’s teachers’ union, which has many, many homosexual delegates, will disseminate this depravity throughout our nation,” Harvey warned. “This is truly heartbreaking and outrageous and will only stop when the moms and dads of America go to their state legislatures and stop it.” Indeed, Harvey believes that such “indoctrination”...

Columnist Mychal Massie is convinced President Obama is turning kids into gay street thugs through public school brainwashing…and it probably goes without saying that the venue he has chosen to publicize this revelation is WorldNetDaily. In his column, Massie compares Obama to “the serpent that beguiled Eve in the Garden” and one of the snakes Saint Patrick drove out of Ireland, before pouncing on the bogus claim that Obama made comments attacking parochial schools while visiting Northern Ireland. “True to his petulant, narcissistic sociopathy, he chose to lash...

The Texas Board of Education member who is leading the committee to review CSCOPE, a curriculum that has been the target of several right-wing conspiracy theories, told a Republican women’s group that his committee will “look at whether or not [CSCOPE lessons] treat the roles of men and women in a traditional way.” Republican Marty Rowley also told the group that CSCOPE had “a definite leftist bent” but that it is not as left-wing as Common Core, promising to block “any opening or opportunity for Common Core to weasel its way into Texas.” Like CSCOPE...

The ever-articulate Ted Nugent writes at WorldNetDaily today that liberals and their allies in government, teachers’ unions and the media are carrying out a “brainwashing jihad.” He says they are using schools to “vilify guns,” which will help them achieve their “ultimate goal of disarming America.” Just as Saul Alinsky wanted… Like the brainwashing jihad running amok among government goons and most of America’s media, our social engineering indoctrination camps (formerly known as the public school system) clearly have it in for guns...

Ohio-based anti-gay activist Linda Harvey is defending a Columbus parochial school which fired a teacher after learning from her mother’s obituary that she has a female partner. “As difficult as it is to lose one’s job, people are fired for insubordination all the time,” Harvey said, noting that school had “no option but to fire her” for being gay. Of course, Harvey was livid when Macy’s fired an employee who refused to follow the company’s LGBT-inclusive policy. She went on to say that the teacher holds an “unbiblical” view of... MORE
