Up Next — School Board Elections

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our public schools are under assault by activist ideologues both in administrations and on faculties. This activism is quickly invading even our elementary schools.

Teachers and administrators are exploiting legitimate anti-bullying sentiment to introduce homosexuality normalizing resources to all children using public money.

They are exploiting legitimate concerns for the less fortunate to promote controversial “critical race theory” and “critical pedagogy” by euphemistically calling it “teaching for social justice.”

They are exposing students to ever more profane and obscene resources by calling parents who object “book banners” and “censors,” all the while hoping no one will notice their astonishing censorship of conservative resources.

There are many things concerned taxpayers can and should do, including running for school boards. School board members are critical in the battle — and it is a battle — to rid public education of subversive curricula, presumptuous educators, and politicized professional development activities.

A prerequisite for running for school boards is to be willing to endure scorn and ridicule. We need courageous men and women who care more about truth and virtue than they do about their own comfort. We desperately need men and women who understand that “if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” IFI is pleading with those who feel the full weight of those words to consider running for school boards.

As I have said many times, activist ideologues both outside and inside public schools know that it’s easier to capture the hearts and minds of 16-year-olds than 26-year-olds and easier still to capture the hearts and minds of 6-year-olds.

If courageous, wise men and women do not step up to help restore integrity to public education, we bequeath a legacy of tragic ignorance and cultural oppression to our children. Whether you have children or not, whether you have school-age children or not, you should care about public education, because the children in school today, will very shortly be our culture-makers.

Far too many feckless, partisan administrators and teachers have been allowed to run our schools with almost complete autonomy because of the ignorance, passivity, and cowardice of community members. Please prayerfully consider standing for truth by running for your local school board.
