School’s Purpose is Indoctrination.

It is time to hold the left and academia accountable for their blatant propaganda. Not just teachers and schools, but the creators of course materials.

The near sole purpose of present-day academia is indoctrination. This is a fairly bold thesis, but the evidence is in its favor.

The increasingly progressive leftist agenda is sweeping through academia and conservatives are passively watching it happen.

The main indoctrination stories you hear are those of radical professors on college campuses, outlandish majors created to forward social justice movements, and, on occasion, a political outburst by a high school teacher.

Indoctrination is no longer dependent upon the political beliefs of teachers. We are now past that.

Although these issues need addressing, by far the biggest – and the one that should scare everyone the most – is the silent indoctrination.

Indoctrination is no longer dependent upon the political beliefs of teachers. We are now past that. Course material is blatant political propaganda. Not just the course material for gender studies and similar. The core curricula of grade school through college.

Sciences, economics, literature – any core course you can think of is politically influenced.

The only course that may still be an exception is mathematics. Unless you account for the left-wing system of common core – which is a complete disaster. If you don’t believe this, sit through a grade school math class or open up your child’s text book. Disaster.

The indoctrination of students is not just concerning re the influence on their political views, but the development of their morals and core beliefs.

Common core is another battle, and actually a far less important one. The indoctrination of students is not just concerning regarding the influence on their political views, but the development of their morals and core beliefs.

The conservative response to indoctrination has been groups such as Turning Point USA (TPUSA), Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), and College Republicans. These are all near exclusive to college campuses and college students.

In a recent article, David Kurten discusses the movement in the UK to impose mandatory inclusion of LGBT course materials for five-year-olds. Some individuals are even pushing for this mandate be extended to three and four-year olds. With the imposition of leftist ideology on essentially toddlers, college is much too late for conservative intervention.

Turning Point and YAF have a presence on high school campuses, but this presence is limited. This may be attributed to administrative restrictions, campus size, lack of political inclination by 14-year-olds, et cetera.

Juveniles typically don’t care about politics, and definitely not policy. But since 2016, more young people are being sucked into the political realm. The social issues in the United States, such as feminist and LGBTQ+ movements, have become so extreme and unbearable. Kids are tired of being told to apologize for the race or gender they were born as, and being told what they can and cannot say despite having a God-given right to speak freely.

The system that has been trying to indoctrinate students, while sometimes successful, has worn out the patience of their targets.

The system that has been trying to indoctrinate students, while sometimes successful, has worn out the patience of many of their targets.

They’ve generated enough anger to fuel their own youth countermovement. Meet Generation Z, the most socially and fiscally conservative generation since World War II.

It has taken students themselves recording, posting, and promoting the shocking and disappointing behavior of their teachers to get the media to begin turning their cameras on high school campuses.

The increasing media attention on high school teachers is great, and certainly a large step in the right direction when it comes to the reformation of academia. However, it still appears as though the general consensus is indoctrination is rooted in the teachers.

    Everything that is happening in education today at all levels can be tied directly back to the goals stated in the Humanist Manifesto 1 and 2. Read them. They are clearly stated, and clearly being observed today. In Manifesto 2, John Dunphy wrote: “I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being…The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of ‘love thy neighbor’ will finally be achieved.” We are witnessing the harvest.
