In her talk, Karen England will share evidence that activist special interest groups have infiltrated K-12 classrooms to promote their agendas. Rather than focusing on academic content, K-12 schools are increasingly promoting and affirming “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” and “Critical Race Theory.” Such “lessons” found in curricula churn out enthusiastic activists for leftist causes rather than educate.
Karen will explain why she believes we must “armor up” and battle for the minds of our children. Part of the fight is confronting false narratives being presented in education systems that support political causes. Part of the fight also involves recognizing parents have that right to train up their children in ways that might differ from evolving social norms (on sex education for example). Karen will explain why she thinks we can win this important battle.
