Something has gone very badly wrong in education. Our schools are filled with divisive identity politics rooted in Marxist Critical Theory, but it seems almost impossible to nail down and fight against. Children are being sexualized and sexuality-ized at younger and younger ages, and it’s disrupting their lives and well-being. Children aren’t learning to read, write, do mathematics, or achieve academically in any subject, but they’re learning to become aggrieved activists, filled with stress, anxiety, depression, and fear about their future. America and American values are under assault, and families are feeling the strain thanks to the schools they trust …

The Marxification of Education Workshop, Session 4 of 4 The hottest buzzword in education today is Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), but it’s not just a buzzword. It’s a huge program with almost universal installation (thanks to the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA, of 2015) and billions upon billions of dollars behind it. What is it? Where did it come from? Should we trust it? To the last of these questions, there are excellent reasons to believe that we shouldn’t. In fact, we shouldn’t want it anywhere near our children and should fight vigorously to protect them from it. We should also …

The Marxification of Education Workshop, Session 3 of 4 The word of the year in education and regarding our children has been “groomer,” which is widely banned across social media now as a result (along with James Lindsay from Twitter for calling this problem out). In the Marxification of education, which is its remaking into a system of Marxist conscientization, schools can be said to have been transformed into groomer schools. Specifically, while the terms “thought reform” and “brainwashing” have been used in the past to describe this process, the term “grooming” is even more applicable given the nature of the process …

The Marxification of Education Workshop, Session 2 of 4 How on Earth did education get so messed up and stolen from our society and our kids? While the critical turn in education enabled this “transformation” of our education system, the crucial piece that allowed it to happen is the work of a Brazilian Marxist by the name of Paulo Freire. Paulo Freire completely transformed education, not least by Marxifying it. That is, in addition to creating the conditions to swap out actual education for political education, Freire structured his understanding of education and knowledge itself as a Marxist Theory of knowing and being educated. Treating …

The Marxification of Education Workshop, Session 1 of 4 Education has been stolen from us and from our children. Yes, stolen. It was deliberately transformed from within into something that is barely education at all anymore. Instead, it’s a systematic program of thought reform (brainwashing) into neo-Marxist belief and activism. How has this been accomplished? The formal name for the transformation is “the critical turn in education,” which “turned” education from traditional models of pedagogy to “Critical Pedagogy,” the application and teaching of Critical Theory to and through the education system. Its purpose: to overcome what Marxists refer to as “the …
