If what the teachers are teaching your children is legit, why are they trying so hard to keep parents from knowing about it? Joining us today is Bob Unruh (wnd.com), columnist at World Net Daily. He relates the story of one mother who is trying to obtain information about what her children are being taught. To keep her from knowing this information, the NEA is suing her. In addition to intimidating an individual, the unions may be playing a longer, more dangerous game in the courts.

Education was supposed to provide us with stellar learning, but unfortunately that is not happening. Is there any hope? Joining us today is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how classical education has been slowly removed from curricula only to be replaced by slogans and inaccurate history. The culprits are more the educrats than teachers, but many teachers go along with it. So is there any hope? Now that the plan has been thoroughly exposed, some teachers and many parents are pushing back to reclaim what education was always supposed to be.

Despite constant promotion for and adoption of critical race theory policies, teachers unions are now publicly washing their hands of the theory. Any mention of CRT has been erased from the NEA website. Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America, joins us today to talk about it and to promote Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com. Now that parents are waking up to the dangers of CRT, they need to stay awake and stay diligent.

There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. He breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.

Joining John in the studio is his wife, Carol, a homeschool and tutoring pro, along with Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. All three discuss the realities of teaching your children at home, the difference between homeschooling and public schooling at home, and the importance of a values-based curriculum.

We then welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lockdowns should follow the child, and one way to do that is through educational savings accounts.

Finally this week, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, joins us to examine the potential realities of contact tracing and the broad redefinition of the term ‘case' which has led to a skyrocketing – and possibly misleading – number of new coronavirus ‘cases.'

Starting out the week, we welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lock-downs (as well as under normal circumstances) should follow the child. Education savings accounts are a great way to do that.

When dealing with the teacher's unions and the educrats, which group of people do you think they favor – the children who are there to learn or the adults who run everything? No hint needed except to say that it's all about power, money, and control.
