Bernard DeCastro on Education

 


Put God and patriotism back in our public schools

We must break our public school system free of the National Education Association (NEA) stranglehold and its progressive agenda. Dismantling this union is imperative for the future of our children and our nation. We must put God and patriotism back in our public schools and give parents the right to choose how and what kind of education their children will receive.

Put God and patriotism back in our public schools

From the middle of the 20th century liberal and socialist entities have recognized that the power to overthrow our way of life rested in the infiltration of our schools and educational institutions with Marxist and socialist philosophies.

Today our children know everything there is to know about sexual methods and homosexual rights but cannot say the Lord's Prayer or The Pledge of Allegiance in school. They are taught how to properly put on a prophylactic but know nothing about respect for our founding fathers or the Holy Bible. They learn that truth is relative and that their ancient ancestors were apes and monkeys but cannot hear that the world was created by God and man was made in His image. They can wear pants that start below their underwear but get suspended for wearing a T-Shirt proclaiming Jesus Christ Is Lord. We must put God and patriotism back in our public schools.

Dismantle the NEA and give parents the right to choose

I BELIEVE in the reform of our public education system. Approximately 9 out of 10 graduating high school students cannot tell you what the 3 branches of government are, much less what their function is.

We must break our public school system free of th National Education Association stranglehold & its progressive agenda. Dismantling this union is imperative for the future of our children and our nation. We must give parents the right to choose how and what kind of education their children will receive.
