Some critics of public schools contend that our education system, using our tax money and our children, is mass producing young people who embrace socialism, globalism, and humanism. 
  
These critics cite numerous examples, including the following: 
 
Documentary film maker Colin Gunn exposed many of the issues with our public schools in his film IndoctriNation; https://youtu.be/4or2qdyxsSA

There is a plan underway in academia to sexualize our children by implementing Comprehensive Sexuality Education.  Warning: this video is very sexually explicit. https://www.comprehensivesexualityeducation.org/waronchildren/

California won’t allow parents to opt out their children from attending sex education [also known as promiscuity promotion], as revealed here: https://vimeo.com/344632997
   
The National Education Association, the largest teachers’ union, has a strongly held political agenda.  You can read a portion of that agenda here: https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/how-americas-largest-union-is-destroying-our-country-beginning-with-schools

One extreme example of the caliber of graduates being produced by our schools is Candi CdeBaca, recently elected to the Denver, Colorado, City Council, representing District 9.  She recently made the following statement:   
  
"I don’t believe that our current economic system actually works.  Capitalism by design is extractive, and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor, and resources.  We are in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.  I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of these resources and so whatever that morphs into will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

Candi CdeBaca is a communist in everything but name and is indicative of the philosophy of today’s graduate. Communism is a virulent form of socialism that is armed, violent, coercive, deceitful, totally implacable, and that plans to destroy all opposition.  Communists will lie, steal, cheat, and murder if necessary, to obtain, and maintain, power.  If Communists gain power, the unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, will be abolished.  If it’s voluntary, it’s not socialism; if it’s not voluntary, it’s tyranny.
  
As President Abraham Lincoln said: “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation is the philosophy of government in the next.”  If we don’t turn our schools around soon, the Candi CdeBaca’s will be in charge, and our liberty will be nothing but a dim memory.

Political scientist Joel Skousen wrote the following in his World Affairs Brief of June 7, 2019:

"This nation’s traditional conservative majority has slowly been under attack by the twin evils of unlimited immigration and the dumbing down of our children through the insidious lure of “free public education.” Public education, long ago converted into a tax-paid socialist propaganda machine, is undermining the US by dumbing down our children, turning them into socialists, subjecting them to social doctrines and political correctness that stifle critical thinking and enforce “group think,” while requiring everyone to accept evil."

Experienced educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman document in their book,  Crimes of the Educators, how America's future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values, and its system of government into a socialist dictatorship by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population.

The assault on the United States through the subversion of education has been underway for decades.  In 1953, the President of the Ford Foundation admitted that the tax-exempt foundations were working to alter life in the United States so that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union into a world socialist dictatorship.

Solutions:
The solution to these issues, according to Messrs. Gunn and Newman, is to:
  
  • pull our children out of public school; 
  • shut the public schools down;
  • replace them with homeschooling or private schools financed and controlled by parents.

Although I support the rights of parents to homeschool their children, or enroll them in private schools, these options may not be viable for many parents.  There are significant problems in public schools, as the critics point out, but the situation is not all bad.  I have seen many beneficial influences and effects on children that individual teachers have made. This is why I am not about to abandon public schools.  The problems identified by Messrs. Gunn, Skousen, Blumenfeld, and Newman, and Mrs. Iserbyt, are real and troubling, but they can be remedied, which is why I am running for Richland School Board, Position 4. 
      
My Pledge:
   
  • Contend for our children and their intellectual growth.
  • Strenuously oppose any program or activity that adversely affects the health, safety, or learning environment of our children, or which interferes with the Constitutional rights of the parents or their children. 
  • Oppose any attempt to implement any curriculum that sexualizes our children.  I consider any such curriculum child abuse.  
  • Work to ensure that our schools fulfill their mission to produce men and women who:
    • Are competent in communication, computation, and civics; 
    • Continually grow intellectually;
    • Are independent thinkers who work well with others; 
    • Can courageously stand by the truth, even when unpopular.
