On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Jill Simonian, the director of outreach for PragerU Resources for Educators and Parents, joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the new PragerU documentary “Miseducated: The Decline of America’s Schools” and explain why American schools are obsessed with race, gender, and revisionist history.
“What we’re facing now in education really started decades ago and it has been a slow and steady roll. And, like you said, the rot is so deep. And what is that rot? Christopher Rufo explained it quite frankly, long story short, as Marxism,” Simonian said.
Simonian said parents should keep speaking up and speaking out even when they are nervous about repercussions.
“I think we’ve gotten to a point in our social structure where, really, people are really scared about being labeled something awful if they happen to say ‘you know what, I don’t necessarily agree with that and I question that narrative,'” Simonian said. “Fear, I think, has overtaken a lot of what’s going on in education now.”
