As another school year riddled with chaos ends, I feel very strongly that I need to encourage our PJTN family of supporters with a word in support of good teachers.
Now, like our children, America’s teachers are targets on the littered battlefield in a complex war that has become the standard in our nation’s educational system.
We must support, pray for and uphold the “good teachers” of America. And what is the definition of a good teacher? Men and women who entered the profession with a true love of learning and a commitment to sharing the art and love of learning with their students—these wonderful teachers are everywhere across the nation. Many of them are fighting a seemingly losing battle of educating our children amidst Marxists posing as teachers’ unions, billionaires and oligarchs (can we say, Bill Gates?) with an agenda to remake the world to their specs and ultimately profit from America’s decline and the army of politicians, cronies and “experts” controlled by the lure of money.
We must stand up and encourage the remnant of good teachers still among us to push back on the intrusion of radical pressures taking seats in their classrooms to exert negative forces on the welfare of our children’s future, and their future leadership of the nation we love. For those of us who love and support Israel and our Jewish brethren, we also have a very real reason for concern about the next generation of alliances America will offer. Anti-Semitism and hatred of the Jews are skyrocketing as the norm in today’s curriculum nationwide.
We are seeing the results of the indoctrination of young teachers in radical left-wing agendas: small children are being molded into angry little social justice warriors and childhood is being robbed of its innocence by X-rated, age-inappropriate sex-ed programs that illicit “gender confusion” as part of the course for children younger than fourth grade. Where will it end?
We must stand up and demand that our good teachers can follow their calling to nurture and educate our children and not be terrified into silence by false accusations and special interest political pressures that demand a narrow definition of state-approved curricula that are both unpopular and a proven failure.
The one thing that continues to work is putting a quality teacher in front of a classroom and letting her exercise her training and professional instincts with the child’s best interest at heart. Programs do not teach children to read. Teachers do, yet they are taking the blame for much of what we are seeing happening today in American education.
This is outrageous! It’s time to end this nightmare! Parents and good teachers must stand and partner together. Teachers are essential workers. America’s teachers are public servants whose salaries are paid for by our tax dollars. Good teachers want the freedom to follow their calling for our children’s best interests. Taxpayers want to see educational dollars put to effective use. Both are goals we must aspire to.
Our Founding Fathers, who built America on Judeo-Christian values, told us the only way to keep a free republic is with a well-educated and moral citizenry. Both of these essential building blocks of freedom are under attack—an all-out, well-funded, well-orchestrated attempt in 2022 to destroy families and the legacy of education in America are both a reality. In the balance is our freedom as well as our global leadership as a nation.
I am today issuing a national press release directed to honest legislators and true patriots. I am posing the question: “Do you have the courage to stand up with good teachers and millions of concerned parents to secure the future of America’s next generation of leadership—our children?” The time is now!
We are this week finalizing plans for our Taking Back America’s Children Southeastern Summit, to be held in Franklin, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville) on August 19-20th. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend! It will be an invaluable training time over two days designed to educate, motivate and activate for change on your grassroots, community level. God has given us a mandate, a strategy and a purpose to be found faithful and standing for the values we cherish during these challenging times.
I am encouraging our PJTN family to draw close to this effort—your support is critically needed at this time to keep our voice amplified and our efforts for change at the forefront and effective. The challenges and the pressure to compromise have never been greater.
Please let me hear from you this week to know you are continuing to stand with us—we can only move forward with your financial support and prayers.
