Default SCHOOLS FOR SUBVERSION Symposium in West LA

For those of you in the West Los Angeles area, or even the San Fernando Valley, this is close to you and well worth your time and $15 to attend. These are people who know exactly what is happening and who is pushing the agenda at the highest levels.


SCHOOLS FOR SUBVERSION: How Public Education Lays the Foundation for University Radicalism


It’s hardly a secret that many of today’s colleges are little more than indoctrination centers for the left. Tolerance is a one way street and if you don’t toe the party line, you are shouted down, ostracized or worse. But does this propaganda start in college?
Not even close.
It begins early in elementary school, when children are inculcated with lessons steeped in “social justice,” which is essentially radical egalitarian, leftist social engineering. Although parents may not be aware of it, social justice creeps into just about every subject: social studies, language arts, science, even math. It’s weaved into state curriculum standards. It is the focus of colleges of education. It is promoted by curriculum companies (sometimes tax-supported and tax-exempt) to teachers, cloaked in innocuous titles and feel-good text.
The roots and real goals of this radical pedagogy will be examined by this panel. Among the topics for discussion:
• The latest Pew poll shows that 49 percent of young adults believe that socialism is a viable economic system. Only 43 percent say they have a negative view. The poll also found that just 46 percent of people age 18-29 have positive views of capitalism, and 47 percent have negative views.
• Even “global warming,” ostensibly a scientific issue, is really about the expansion of government. According to the alarmists, the alleged climate change has been the product of unbridled corporate America, so the government must rein them in. Or as David Horowitz has explained, “Green is the new red.”
• Is Islam really a “religion of peace?”
• Does Che Guevara deserve to be idolized?
• Does “The Three Little Pigs” really have a Eurocentric message?
• Is teaching anti-racist math really necessary?
• Why is it okay to teach young kids about the joys of collective bargaining but not about why capitalism is the best system on earth?
This is just the tip of the iceberg. It is essential that the public become fully aware of this troubling phenomenon and get more involved in their local schools with the goal of stopping the left from using them as recruitment centers.
Panel
Kyle Olson – Author of Indoctrination: How ‘Useful Idiots’ Are Using Our Schools to Subvert American Exceptionalism and publisher of EAGnews.org, a news service dedicated to education reform and school spending research, reporting, analysis and commentary.
Larry Sand – Retired teacher, president of the California Teachers Empowerment Network, blogger and regular contributor to City Journal. Having taught for over 28 years, he has first hand what Olson has written about.
Mary Grabar – Conservative professor who’s forever battling the left, and not coincidentally, forever battling for her continued employment in Georgia. She has written extensively about leftist domination in our colleges, most notably chronicling the ugly legacy of the late Howard Zinn whose radical and factually challenged “textbook,” A People’s History of the United States, is in wide usage in schools across the country. She is organizing the Resistance to the Re-Education of America at DissidentProf.com.
Bruce Thornton – Conservative professor of classics and humanities at Fresno State University and a National Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He is the author of eight books, a regular contributor to FrontPageMag.com and perhaps the most articulate and prolific conservative college professor working today.
Moderator
Ben Boychuk – currently an associate editor of City Journal, where he writes eloquently on a wide variety of topics. He has long
been involved with education issues, including a recent stint at Heartland Institute where he was a policy advisor for education and managing editor of School Reform News.
