Reforming education

We recently chatted with Chaplain E. Ray Moore about the importance of a private, Christian education over what you get from public schools. A colleague of his has developed a method that allows parents to take control of their child's schooling, giving them the tools they need. Joining us today is the Founder of that method, known as the One-Room Schoolhouse method, Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com). She describes the benefits of having a small classroom – yes, in one room – where children of several different grade levels gather to learn together. Her most important focus: that parents should be the ones in charge of what their children learn.

We've discussed before the nefarious nature of ESG scores, which are social credit scores for businesses. Today we look at how these socialist standards would affect the oil industry. First up this week is author and scholar John Horvat (returntoorder.org). He examines the recent rule proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. This rule, motivated by ideology, not economics, gives the impression that America is weak and for the oil industry, will result in declined oil production at a time when energy needs are on the rise.

We then transition to the education arena, showing how dysfunctional our schools have become, even in conservative areas. John first chats with Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states and even after parents succeeded in removing it from curricula. Teachers have admitted that no matter what happens, they'll just close the classroom door and teach what they want.

How did our education system get to the point where teachers choose to teach CRT or discuss sexual topics with children? We welcome two guests: Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They reveal how teachers' colleges are preparing educators to indoctrinate students with socialist lesson plans. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.

We wrap up the show this week with a positive message. People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God and one of those places is in South America. Joining John is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), CEO of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God has begun a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of hearts, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.

We have three guests on today's program.  First up is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media.  He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states – and when parents catch on, the educrats rebrand it and keep going with the same material.  Sadly, reforms can be sought, but teachers have admitted, regardless of what happens, they will just close the classroom door and teach what they want anyway.

We then transition to a two-guest round table with Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education.  They discuss how teachers are being taught in colleges different techniques in instructing children to be socialists.  Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.

In any situation, including the recent Iraqi embassy attack and subsequent deadly drone strike, you have to ask yourself what is true and what is going on. In this week's boralogue, John busts through some narratives and gives a backgrounder on the Middle East and the groups that have arisen from there. It sets the table for our next guest and gives you a clear and realistic picture of how we got to what happened last week.

Now that we know how we got here, we can look at the now former leader of Iran's Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, who was taken out with a drone strike last week. Back with us is Kenneth Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, who describes the truth of who Soleimani was, what he was involved in, and where Iran goes from here.

What happens when a radical progressive idea, seemingly outlandish, begins to gain traction in serious circles? Christopher Rufo (www.city-journal.org), Contributing Editor at City Journal, joins us to examine the Abolish the Police movement, showing that if it were ever to come to pass, crime and inequality would only deepen.

Education is the key to why we are so divided in America, but it is also being used to radically reform the country. Robert Steven Ingebo, (www.americanthinker.com) Akron, Ohio-based businessman, joins us to look at Deep Equity, a progressive-based reform program that relies heavily on buzzwords like intersectionality, diversity, and changing of norms. It's the newest version of a formalized teaching system designed to transform our society.

John's quote of the week:
"Everything that you are hearing about the Middle East is being seen through the lens of the leftist media, these spinners of stories, to match their Western narratives, which are divorced from the reality of what's happening on the ground."

On this week's extra segment, we play a double feature. You might recognize our first interview (as we played it for you here last summer), but it's still pertinent and deserves an encore presentation. James Hutchens from June 2012 is up first followed by Reza Kahlili from January 2015, both covering Iran.
