  For decades, the America-blaming left has been relentlessly pushing a
     vision of America that casts our history, culture, traditions, and
  founding documents in the most negative possible light. Yet in recent
years, this deeply unnatural effort has progressed from telling children
    that their history is evil to telling Americans that they are evil.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
 In classrooms across the nation, students are being subjected to a new
    curriculum designed to brainwash them with the ridiculous left-wing
   dogma known as critical race theory. The key fact about this twisted
doctrine is that it is completely antithetical to everything that normal
             Americans of any color would wish to teach their children.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
 Instead of helping young people discover that America is the greatest,
most tolerant, and most generous nation in history, it teaches them that
America is systemically evil and that the hearts of our people are full
of hatred and malice. Far from advancing the beautiful dream of the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr. -- that our children should “not be judged by the
     color of their skin, but by the content of their character” -- the
    left’s vile new theory preaches that judging people by the color of
                                    their skin is actually a good idea.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                     
                                                                      
                                                                      
         Teaching even one child these divisive messages would verge on
 psychological abuse. Indoctrinating generations of children with these
      extreme ideas is not just immoral -- it is a program for national
    suicide. Yet that is exactly what the Biden administration endorsed
recently in a rule published in the Federal Register aimed at inflicting
 a critical race theory-inspired curriculum on American schoolchildren.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
 The rule explicitly cites the New York Times’ discredited 1619 Project
as a motivation. The Times has described the goal of its endeavor as the
 “re-education” of the American people, and the project even includes a
lesson plan that encourages students to practice “erasing” parts of the
      Declaration of Independence. The Biden rule also directly cites a
 left-wing activist and leading proponent of critical race theory whose
    textbook states, “The only remedy to past discrimination is present
    discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future
                                                       discrimination.”
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
This is what the Biden administration wants to teach America’s children.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
   The Department of Education rule stems from an executive order Biden
         signed on his first day in office. Biden’s order abolished the
      President’s Advisory 1776 Commission I created to honor America’s
   founding principles, and reversed an executive action I took to stop
   these depraved theories from being imposed upon federal employees in
                                          workforce training sessions. 
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
     Thankfully, most Americans oppose this insanity. The left has only
   gotten away with it until this point because not enough parents have
   been paying attention and speaking up. But that is quickly changing.
>From Loudoun County, Va., to Cupertino, Calif., parents are beginning to
make their voices heard against the left-wing cultural revolution. What
                           they need now is a plan to actually stop it.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
  Here are the reforms that every concerned parent in America should be
                                                             demanding.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
   First, every state legislature should pass a ban on taxpayer dollars
   going to any school district or workplace that teaches critical race
   theory, which inherently violates existing anti-discrimination laws.
        Inspired by my executive order last year, Florida, Texas, North
   Carolina, Oklahoma and other states have already taken steps to pass
 such laws. It needs to happen everywhere — and Congress should seek to
                   institute a federal ban through legislation as well.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
Second, each state should create its own 1776 Commission to examine the
      public school curriculum and ensure that students are receiving a
   patriotic, pro-American education — not being taught that the United
                                              States is an evil nation.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
    Third, parents have a right to know exactly what is being taught to
    their children. Last year, many parents had the chance to routinely
 listen in on classes for the first time because of remote learning. As
   students return to the classroom, states need to pass laws requiring
     that all lesson plans have to be made available to parents — every
handout, article, and reading should be posted on an online portal that
                allows parents to see what their kids are being taught.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
  Furthermore, in many places, there are rules preventing students from
  recording what teachers say in class. States and school boards should
                                         establish a “Right to Record.”
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
 Fourth, parents need to organize locally — in every school district in
America — to eliminate “Action Civics” and other versions of the effort
   to contort traditional civics education into a vehicle for political
   indoctrination. The left’s new argument is that our “divisions” stem
from a lack of “civics education” — a problem they intend to “fix” with
  lots of new taxpayer money and a redefinition of “civics” in schools,
   just as they are trying to redefine the meaning of “infrastructure.”
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
Right now, Congress is working on a $1 billion bill known as the Civics
            Secures Democracy Act. No Republican should trust the Biden
  administration with a billion dollars to spend on such programs. Even
      worse, the legislation threatens to establish a de facto national
     curriculum for history and civics, effectively bribing states into
adopting the left’s anti-American curriculum. It is Common Core all over
again -- but much more extreme. And like Common Core, parents must unite
                                   to stop this new federal power grab.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
    Fifth, any parent who objects to the material being taught to their
child in public school should get an automatic voucher, empowering them
 to pick another school of their choice. The government has no right to
brainwash students with controversial ideologies against their parents’
                                                                 will.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
  Sixth, states need to take back control of their schools of education
and credentialing bodies to ensure they are not churning out radicalized
       teachers. To be clear, the overwhelming majority of our nation’s
teachers are some of the most selfless and wonderful people there are —
   but regrettably, many have graduated from extremely biased education
       schools and may not even be aware of the degree to which leftist
          ideology has permeated their curriculum. States should set up
   alternative credentialing bodies that can certify great teachers who
  know how to instill a sense of love for America. School districts can
    then make it a priority to hire teachers with these certifications,
especially for English, history, and social studies roles. States could
  even set up their own versions of Teach for America to get passionate
                         and patriotic young people into the classroom.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
       Finally, states need to break the tenure monopoly in public K-12
  schools. Tenure was originally supposed to protect competent teachers
from being subjected to undue political influence; it has turned into a
   mechanism to protect incompetent teachers who themselves wield undue
    political influence over our children. Educators who are alienating
  children from their own country should not be protected with lifelong
     tenure; they should be liberated to pursue a career as a political
                                                              activist.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
  Make no mistake: The motive behind all of this left-wing lunacy is to
      discredit and eliminate the greatest obstacles to the fundamental
       transformation of America. To succeed with their extreme agenda,
radicals know they must abolish our attachment to the Constitution, the
 Declaration of Independence, and most of all, Americans’ very identity
                           as a free, proud, and self-governing people.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
       The left knows that if they can dissolve our national memory and
        identity, they can gain the total political control they crave.
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
                                                                      
A nation is only as strong as its spirit. For our children, we must act
                                                 before it is too late.
