Academics Over Agendas: Trust Through Transparency

Increased Spending Does Not = Better Results

Since at least the 1990's MN students have been performing below the national and state proficiency rate. Covid made it worse, taking more focus off of academics and ushered in the following: 

Critical Race Theory (CRT) 

  • A worldview that believes racism is present in everything under a doctrine know as ‘systemic racism,’ i.e., everything that happens in the social world that results in any disparity can be attributed to racial privilege or racial oppression.
  • CRT theorists believe racism is a normal everyday experience of most people of color in America, and is not an aberration.
  • Treats issues from the perspective of ‘socially constructed groups,’ not individuality.
  • Ultimately CRT’s objective – the only way to end racism is through a social revolution that undoes the current society and replaces it with something engineered by global elites.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) 

  • The cultivation not of knowledge, but of the “correct” attitudes, beliefs, opinions and behaviors.
  • Information from Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) Website:
    • “With a growing number of partners, CASEL is creating a more comprehensive approach to education, one that will lead to a more equitable, just and productive society,” i.e., goal is reforming society.
    • “SEL competencies can be leveraged to develop justice-oriented, global citizens, and nurture inclusive school and district communities.”
  • In summary, SEL aims to convince young students that America is awash in “systemic” and “structural” racism, and that only large government led social engineering can fix it.

Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) 

  • Traditional ‘sex ed’ programs focus on the human reproductive system, help youth understand body changes experienced during puberty and are taught the importance of abstinence and contraception.
  • The primary goal of CSE is to change the sexual and gender norms of society.

    • Most CSE programs promote acceptance of diverse sexual identities and orientations and are hyper focused on sexual pleasure.
    • Many CSE programs teach children about sex, sexuality or sexual pleasure as young as age 5.
      • Florida banned CSE programs in K-3rd grade.
    • CSE promotes sexual rights to children at the expense of their sexual health.
    • CSE programs don’t typically include abstinence education.
