Episode 55: Indoctrination in the classroom
Free to Offend Episode 55 | Guest: Bonnie Snyder
What happens when the public-school establishment — or even individual teachers — decide it is their duty to do more than merely instruct children, but also tell them how to think?
From “Critical Race Theory” to sexual identity curriculum, many parents have raised concerns that certain classrooms are going beyond merely teaching about controversial topics — instead presenting certain cultural or political agendas as “fact” and trying to mold the worldview of their students.
Bonnie Snyder, author of Undoctrinate: How Politicized Classrooms Harm Kids and Ruin Our Schools, joined the program to talk about the ethical, practical and cultural ramifications of such indoctrination in K-12 education — and what can be done by parents to guard against it.
