By Alex Newman | 06.22.21Children and families under siege in Illinois are getting a lifeline! A national organization working to rescue children from the increasingly radical indoctrination and sexualization in public schools recently announced a new partnership with the non-profit Illinois Family Institute (IFI) to help get as many kids out of the system as possible.
The nationwide group, known as Public School Exit (PSE), was formed last year by a team of concerned Christian leaders, attorneys, pastors, educators, and advocates. The goal: Facilitate an exodus of as many children into the safe sanctuary of homeschools and good private schools.
By Laurie Higgins | 06.21.21Three recent articles, one on NBC on June 15, one in Vanity Fair on June 16, and one on CNN on June 18, futilely attempt to recast conservative objections to the use of public schools to promote Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a “freakout,” “national panic,” “moral panic,” and “hysteria.” When leftists lack sound arguments, they resort to demagoguery. Any means to the ends of preventing conservatives from being as vocal as leftists in shaping culture are, in the narrow minds of leftists, justified.
By Alex Newman | 06.18.21The racist effort to divide and conquer Americans by “race,” all under the guise of examining everything through the “lens of racism” and fighting “structural” or “systemic” racism, has come to be known as critical race theory, or CRT.
By Kathy Valente | 06.16.21If you have been receiving IFI’s email alerts for any length of time, you know that the brainwashing taking place in Illinois’ public schools has escalated to what we now believe is a crisis. They are making our students disciples of a new religion some call "wokeism."
By Laurie Higgins | 06.16.21The poisonous effects of the promulgation of Critical Race Theory (CRT)in both leftist-controlled public schools and private schools—including even Christian private schools—are seen daily. We see the effects in graduation ceremonies ruined, employees fired, and scores of BLM/Antifa “insurrections” that resulted in the destruction of government property and injuries to police officers.
06.15.21On May 28, the Illinois House of Representatives passed the highly controversial "comprehensive" sex education bill (SB 818) over the objections of numerous parents, educators, and representatives. The Illinois Senate passed this proposal back on May 20th.
SB 818 is the most recent in a string of recent legislative efforts to drive an agenda in public education, removing parents and school boards from the decision-making process.
By Alex Newman | 06.12.21Americans educated by government today are, for the most part, hopelessly ignorant of their own nation’s history—and that’s no accident. They’re beyond ignorant when it comes to civics, too. On the history of the rest of the world, or the history of communism, Americans are generally clueless as well. This was all by design, of course.
By Micah Clark | 06.11.21Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr gave an outstanding speech a couple of weeks ago covering several key points on education and religious freedom. Barr raises the thought-provoking question asking if today’s public schools have become religious schools promoting the orthodoxy of secularism.
By David E. Smith | 06.10.21This guide is meant for anyone of any knowledge and experience level who is concerned about what children are being taught and how they are being treated, with an emphasis on making the banning of Critical Race Theory (CRT) the central theme by which you reclaim your schools. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a branch of what we call Critical Social Justice (CSJ), or what others may refer to as Critical Theory.
By David E. Smith | 06.10.21I’m sure that you would agree that our children are part of a massive mission field – a mission field that has been neglected. They demand our utmost attention and our highest priority. Too many children in our families, in our churches and in our communities are being discipled in ways that are contrary to what the Bible teaches. This cannot continue.
By Alex Newman | 06.05.21The facts are now clear: The Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) craze is an extreme threat to America’s youth—and to individual liberty.
The scheme isn’t about helping children at all. Instead, it’s about manipulating and conditioning America’s youth to hold the values and beliefs that the education establishment wants to instill.
By David E. Smith | 06.01.21Parents across the state and nation have had enough of the COVID-19 lockdowns and the cancellation of numerous conferences and other events. Thankfully, it looks like we are slowly getting back to normal. That said, some public school districts are...
By Laurie Higgins | 06.01.21Don’t let the word “debate” in the term “floor debate” fool you. Floor debates in Springfield are no more debates than transwomen are women. There is no cross-examination or rebuttal, for which most of our lawmakers must be deeply thankful...
By Laurie Higgins | 05.28.21Lea este artículo en español The newest manifestation of the creepy desire of Springfield leftists to normalize deviance in children is the laughably named, “Keeping Youth Safe and Healthy Act” (SB 818)—a bill composed entirely of socially constructed leftist beliefs...
By Alex Newman | 05.25.21This article was originally published in April 2020. Very few people realize that the reason children today are being sexualized at school is because pedophiles sexually abused hundreds of children, then claimed that the victims enjoyed it. That’s a fact,...
