Who We Are?
No Left Turn in Education is a grassroots movement of parents, families and citizens. We are workers of all kinds. We are attorneys, educators, social workers, scientists and physicians. We believe that K-12 education should be free from indoctrination and politicization.
Radical teachings motivated by a political agenda and deliberately spread by many teachers, administrators, school board members, and even state officials have infiltrated schools across the nation. Unfortunately, all too often words such as diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, anti-racism, systemic racism, human rights education and health education concealed an aggressive, radical totalitarian ideology. From The 1619 Project, to Critical Race Theory, to Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), the goal is to overturn our society by sowing divisiveness and hate. The social unrest in the wake of the death of George Floyd in May 2020 provided the perfect cover for complete assault and takeover of the educational system. Aided by the “mainstream media” and some politicians, many educators and administrators have become the true schoolyard bullies, using taxpayer funds to brainwash the children who are their captive audience.
Parents from all walks of life are waking up to this troubling reality. The trust that they once had in the schools and the educators has been shattered as they are denied access to what is being taught to their children at school. Anxiety, anger and despair have been spreading among many parents while many children have been confused, bullied, shunned and traumatized. Many educators are under tremendous pressure and conflicted between their duties and their values.
Parents, children and teachers are afraid to speak up and resist. In No Left Turn in Education we believe in restoring the intended relationship between parents and the public education. Congress enshrined these words in creating the Department of Education in 1979: “Parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children, and States, localities, and private institutions have the primary responsibility for supporting that parental role.” This basic truth has long been part of the fabric of our nation.
To revive in American K-12 education the fundamental discipline of critical and active thinking which is based on facts, investigation, logic and sound reasoning.
The goals reflect the legal, legislative and civic actions of our movement:
- Restore parental function in public education and elevate the family as a core teaching unit of society.
- Educate the public about the radical indoctrination in k-12 and its existential threats.
- Mobilize and empower parents all over the country, in every school and locality to organize and become actively involved in overseeing the education of their children.
