Secretary of Education
U.S. Department of Education
One of my colleagues has done ample work on debunking some of the fake history currently used in high schools, but he cannot find outlets to publish his findings. This suggests a lack of support from the DOE, which receives federal funding to set educational agendas. How much support has the DOE given to scholars who question the conversion of the American education system to far-left propaganda purposes or even to determine whether such conversion has occurred, and if so in what states it has occurred?
I do not believe that there are statistics available about state-by-state curricular and behavioral differences with respect to use of the K-12 or even higher education system for political purposes. I have suggested to the National Association of Scholars that a team be put together to evaluate state curricula to see how far gone the states already are and that behavioral research be done to determine how extreme biases have already become in the cultures of state educational systems. A coherent policy response needs to be developed to the 1619 initiative, and there needs to be a jujitsu effort to use it to reinvent education along lines that support the search for truth and our common culture.
How much is the Trump administration doing to assist or orchestrate a response to this deepest of deep state perversions?
