PODCAST: The Revolution in Education in Illinois Continues

Written by David E. Smith

After almost a year of gubernatorial mandates masquerading as law, it should come as no surprise that another legislative group in Illinois is attempting to do an end run in order to avoid following the accepted, standard procedure of presenting a bill for debate and vote by the General Assembly.

Laurie Higgins, IFI’s cultural affairs writer, joins Pastor Calvin Lindstrom and Pastor James Pittman, Jr. for a podcast, featured on Here I Stand Radio, examining the continuing revolution in education in Illinois. They discuss the leftist tactics that would force teachers to teach “progressive” ideas that have their genesis in identity politics and Critical Race Theory/Critical Theory, and detail the ludicrous standards set forth in the “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards” amendment. This interview also describes disturbing changes to Illinois’ current sex education policy. (Read more from Laurie HERE.)
