Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos: 'A completely non child-focused agenda' has taken root in American schools

There's no longer any doubt that America's school systems are being targeted by the radical left. At least 800 leaked documents reveal the dangerous Marxist curriculum being taught to our kids in schools across the country.

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos joined Glenn Beck on this week's TV special to speak to parents who are frustrated with school districts and unions that care more about pushing progressive agendas than educating America's children.

DeVos noted that the "very troubling" kind of cultivation happening in schools today has actually been going on for years, resulting in the civil unrest we're now seeing across the country. She emphasized that "now more than ever" we must empower parents to have a say in what their kids are learning.

"Parents today, all too many of them don't have the opportunity to really control their kids' education, and therefore what they're learning and what their whole environment is. So, now more than ever, today there's a demand, an increasing demand, to give parents options and give them control of resources that are being spent on their children," DeVos said.

"This pandemic has brought about, I believe, a real turning point for K-12 education, as parents realize what their kids have or haven't learned in the past, and what they're learning today," she added. "Parents are realizing today the deficiencies of some of their kids' educational settings and are demanding more ... and there's an increased receptivity, even among families who have moved to a good school district. They're finding and discovering their schools are not meeting their needs. It is a completely non-child focused agenda that's taken root in all too many districts across the country."

DeVos encouraged parents to raise their voices with local school boards and legislators, to demand that resources are being invested in their children.

"[Parents] are paying property taxes. Grandparents are paying property taxes. Businesses are paying property taxes. And they should be able to say, 'We want something different. We want something better for our kids'."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
