Former President Donald Trump made a bold statement this week regarding his plans if he were to become President again in 2024. The former President plans to cut funding from schools that teach divisive curriculum such as Critical Race Theory (CRT) and transgender ideology. According to Trump, “what they’re teaching in schools today is insane.” He intends to promptly authorize an executive directive that would eliminate federal financing for any educational institution that promotes Critical Race Theory, transgender issues, or other unacceptable racial, sexual, or political topics to our kids. Trump is enthusiastic about reinstating parental authority in our education systems and will work towards extending this entitlement to every state in the United States.

Recently, a Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll was released indicating that the majority of Iowans support legislation restricting curriculum teaching about sexual orientation gender identity ideology. It is imperative that schools across America stop implementing unjust political policies and consider the conservative beliefs held by most Americans.

On top of preserving parental rights, Trump spoke about school choice and “breaking up” the U.S.Department of Education. He also expressed his opinion on the current COVID-19 situation by stating that he “will not donate even one cent to a kindergarten through college that imposes a requirement for a vaccine or a mask.” Many colleges have implemented vaccine and booster mandates for students to attend classes, which Trump disagrees with completely.
Finally, Trump addressed the issue of The New York Times’ 1619 Project being taught in some schools. He plans to push back by creating the “1776 Commission” to teach kids about the real history of the United States. The 1619 Project aims to teach children from a young age that our country is inherently racist, which is a lie that must be stopped. Republican lawmakers across the country have been at the forefront of initiatives to protect parents’ rights in their children’s education and keep CRT and sexual orientation and transgender education out of schools.
In the 2021 Virginia gubernatorial election, Republican Glenn Youngkin triumphed over former Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who said, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Youngkin emerged victorious in the election by emphasizing the significance of parental rights, and it is crucial that more political leaders adopt his conservative ideology to safeguard a brighter future for the children of America.
