We just hosted some family in our home. Since our guests and us both have children in school, the conversation over cake and coffee turned to their education.
Laurie told us how she took her children (2 girls aged 12 and 9) to a library near their home in Florida. The library has a collection of rare, original books and documents. The librarian was showing the girls some books and documents from WWII. She was shocked when her questions about WWII went unanswered.
The librarian turned to Laurie and asked “What are these girls learning in history?” Laurie was rightfully upset.
Unfortunately, this is an all too common occurrence in schools all across America. History is being replaced by social justice nonsense.
Why aren’t the children learning about the true foundations of the United States? How come they do not know the truth about the American Revolution, the American Civil War, WWI and WWII?
Children cannot defend what they do not know. So, if they do not understand what true liberty and freedom is and where it is derived from, it is that much easier to steer them to despotism.
Take the time to review the material your children are given in school. If there is something there you do not like, tell the teacher. Get other parents involved. If there is something you feel that is missing which should be there do the same thing.
The battle between liberty and tyranny is being waged in popular culture, the political arena and the classroom.
The classroom cannot be surrendered to the proponents of socialism. The fight must begin there so progress can be seen there as well as in the other two arenas.
