Episode 77: School Choice is an Answer, But it’s Not The Only Answer… conversation with Tony Kinnett of The Chalkboard Review

I asked the question last week, “What do you think of the K-12 public education system as it exists today?” I think that most people who are paying attention, if being intellectually honest, would say that it’s a complete mess and it’s in many ways out of control. It is certainly out of control in terms of parents being in control of their children’s education. Many would say, and have said, that the K-12 public education system has become just another indoctrination mill for the loudest voices with a poisonous agenda. Just this week, we’ve seen the Department of Justice put out notice that those who oppose CRT and other poisonous curriculum should be monitored as domestic terrorists. Kind of scary isn’t it?

In my conversation this week,  Tony Kinnett of the Chalkboard Review and I discuss his piece that was recently published in the National Review titled “Conservatives, Take Back the Education Field”. We also discuss the reality that school choice, while certainly an important cause that is desperately needed, is not the only answer to solve the problems we face as a nation with our education system. It will take much more than school choice legislation to fix the mess we’re in. So many important points came out of this great conversation with Tony. Don’t miss this great conversation and be sure to share it far and wide…

Episode 76: An Eye on Education, Cameras in the Classroom? …with Dr. Elana Fishbein

What are your thoughts on the K-12 public education system as it exists today in our country? In recent weeks and months we’ve seen several instances where fed up parents and community members have stood up to school boards all over the country, due to any number or reasons, be it CRT, LGBTQ curriculum, mask mandates, etc… 

Dr. Elana Fishbein of No Left Turn in Education is no stranger to the Derate The Hate podcast. We first spoke back in Episode 45 when No Left Turn was just a couple months in to their battle against the indoctrination that so many are becoming fed up with in our K-12 education system.  A lot has been happening with Dr. Fishbein and the No Left Turn organization since we last spoke, including some legal battles and working on proposed legislation to get cameras in to classrooms for full transparency of what our children are being taught.

Episode 74: Ideas That Get Your “of color” Card Revoked… with Angel Eduardo

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and came away thinking, if the world had more thinkers such as this, the world would be a much calmer and better place for everyone? The deep thinker I’m talking about is Angel Eduardo and I’m grateful this week for having the opportunity to speak with Angel on the Derate the Hate podcast.

I recently read a piece by Angel published in Newsweek, “Stop calling me “white” for having the wrong opinions”, which stood out to me as something that seems to happen with much greater frequency these days. It seems if people of color don’t have the “correct” ideas or opinions, they are said to be “acting white” or called “white” as a pejorative. This is not only a disgusting form of racism and bullying, but it’s a nonsensical attempt by some to keep us divided. Angel has more than a little to say about this so you’re not going to want to miss this conversation!

Episode 64: Unhyphenated America, Let’s Just Be American… with Christoper Harris

What’s it mean to be an American? Is America great despite the sins of the past, and if so, what makes America Great? I for one truly believe that the United States of America is the greatest nation on God’s green earth, and it’s high time people stop allowing divisive forces to put labels upon us, and we all just start acting like Americans again. Christoper Harris is one that knows a lot about a lot, and he knows that being an American doesn’t need, and shouldn’t have, a hyphenated identity qualifier in front of it…
The message Chris is putting out is not only incredibly important, but many of the same divisive forces I speak regularly of in this podcast don’t want you to know his message exists. It’s not the standard narrative and this message must be spread far and wide!

Episode 60: Critical Race Theory is Hateful Nonsense

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” ~Martin Luther King Jr.
There is very little doubt in my mind that Dr. King would be spinning in his grave when it comes to the topic of “Critical Race Theory”. There is way too much good in this world to let the loudest, most hateful and most divisive voices win the day. Critical Race Theory is just that, hateful and divisive nonsense.

Do you want your children automatically labeled as a victim or oppressed because they are a child of color? Do you want your child automatically labeled as a racist because they are white? That is how Critical Race Theory works, we shall no longer judge a person by the content of their character, but by the color of their skin. It does not matter how old you are, where you come from, what good or bad you’ve done in your life, nothing matters but the color of your skin…

Episode 45: Indoctrination IN Education, Interview with Dr. Elana Fishbein

Is your child’s education important? I think most, if not all people would say yes. Do you know what your children are being taught in school? What do you believe the role of the school is in teaching your kids values as opposed to what the role of the family is in teaching values? These are questions we all need to be asking and in this week’s episode, I interview Dr. Elana Fishbein, and we dive in to one of today’s greatest problems when it comes to the education of our children. This is an unbelievably important episode you’re not going to want to miss!
