You may be surprised to hear some provocative and perhaps controversial statements on today’s program. One reason you may perceive them to be so is the fact that we rarely hear the truth – an honest evaluation of what’s really happening in the education system in America today. My parents were career educators, both having retired in public education prior to 1988, and to be sure, they would not recognize what education has become in the last thirty years or so.

The current state of disarray in American schools today is concerning, but most of us understand we did not get here overnight. If you feel angry or defensive to the point of saying this is not really happening, it may be time to get more informed or involved in the political process which includes your local school board. This is what it really comes down to: parents are responsible for raising their children, and for Christians, that means bringing them up in the knowledge of the truth, in the worldview of biblical Christianity and the morality it teaches.

We are blessed to have Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Academy back on the program today to discuss the most recent concerns and trends in education. Many Americans have little idea the extent of the leftist agenda including the anti-Christian, anti-Israel, progressive and social justice indoctrination being implemented in America today. Does this sound extreme? Listen to this podcast.
