Most Nonwhite Americans Don’t Want Their Kids Steeped in Cultural Marxism

Despite the best efforts of leftist activists, many nonwhite parents are fighting back against the LGBT agenda infecting public schools.

(The Federalist) — Like many left-leaning public school districts across America, the leadership of Fairfax County Public Schools just outside our nation’s capital is majority white, despite the region’s racial diversity. Meanwhile, the district’s white, leftist leaders, who incessantly claim to be inclusive, are ironically ignoring parental objections to teaching radical gender ideology in schools.

At the end of June, the school board voted to include gender ideology in its seventh-grade sex-education curriculum. In response to a survey in which 84 percent of respondents opposed co-ed sex education, the white activist superintendent, Michelle Reid, is unilaterally implementing a pilot program in 14 elementary schools doing just that.

Why? Because it is important to white leftists that nonwhite children think like them, even if their parents disagree and it violates their religious beliefs. And across the nation, minority parents overwhelmingly disagree with radical gender ideology being taught in schools. 

The Pew Research Center’s opinion polling, conducted April 8-14, 2024, shows that 70 percent of black respondents and 62 percent of Hispanic respondents say that “gender” is determined by sex at birth. Muslims have also recently mobilized around this issue in Montgomery County, Maryland, and Dearborn, Michigan.

The purpose of public education should be to fundamentally educate our nation’s children, but public schools are failing our children in this most basic mandate. Although graduation rates have increased from 74 percent to 87 percent between 2007 and 2020, the average SAT scores have substantially decreased, showing that students are faring worse over time and that standards have declined.

Instead, school district leaders are advancing a cultural Marxist agenda designed to indoctrinate children from the most resistant families through radical gender ideology and other controversial topics.
