Do You Know What Your Kids Are Thinking?
You Might Be Surprised

Many of us assume that this generation of young Americans is much like any other—but the fact is they’re not. Not even close. Numerous polls show the same result on issue after issue. Frightening percentages of our kids believe that

Christianity is judgmental, and just pla...more

Not a strenuous read, by any means, but Marybeth Hicks gives me 1001 more reasons to homeschool. Number 1, however, is the concept of social "justice" to which the academy is utterly married. Her purpose is to give readers an eyeful of real life, real American public school examples demonstrating how rife the schools are with left of center teaching, teaching that is undermining the freedoms we have enjoyed and the mindset of freedom that is so vital to maintaining them. Yup! We're not allowed t...more

I am a religious conservative, but I couldn't take this book. There is no effort at objective legitimacy. This book is alarmist propaganda for the far right. I can't stand that level of bias from either side.
A must read tor all. An eye opener to the progressive movement and the indoctrination of our youth. Wake il America! The forever transformation of America is happening right under our feet.

Just heard the author interviewed on Hugh Hewitt. Will be getting this one soon. Sounds like a great companion to my John Gotto reading as of late.

I appreciate the information presented in this book, but it is definitely very one-sided. The author seems to assume she is preaching to the choir and therefore she doesn't really outline her own opinions; rather, she spends the entire book attacking the Left as though everyone reading the book is with her on the far Right - and without defining the beliefs that make her so conservative. I would have gotten a lot more out of reading this if it argued for something, rather than simply pointing ou...more

The book seemed a bit wordy with a lot of quotes. The strategies to "restore america" at the end of the book were vague and bland. I agreed with the author's main points, but I was surprised at how the verbiage seemed to slow me down.

Loving this book so far.

Non-racist, liberty-loving individualist... and I prefer "Tea" over the "kool aid" being dished out in America right now. :)
Good read...very scary to find out who (and what) is indoctrinating our kids. We must always be vigilant.
This lady makes Anne Coulter seem reasonable. Pass.

“The uncomfortable reality is, the diversity agenda isn't about honoring and cherishing all racial, ethnic and religious traditions. It's about apologizing for our Western, Judeo-Christian foundations while pretending not to notice that we're elevating in the eyes of our children the very cultures that hold America in disdain.” 4 likes
