I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray for the education system. Would you you be the center of our country. God, would what is being taught in our schools not create division due to race, but would unify all children to know you.

It seems the Biden administration will listen to the public when the rejection of their ideas is clear and loud. On April 19, 2021, the Department of Education (DOE) proposed a new regulation to promote culturally responsive teaching and information literacy skills under the American History and Civics Education programs. Under the first priority, the DOE proposal would give preference to grant applications for a curriculum that incorporates ideas laden with critical theories (emphasis added):

American History and Civics Education programs can play an important role in this critical effort by supporting teaching and learning that reflects the breadth and depth of our Nation’s diverse history and the vital role of diversity in our Nation’s democracy. For example, there is growing acknowledgment of the importance of including, in the teaching and learning of our country’s history, both the consequences of slavery, and the significant contributions of Black Americans to our society. This acknowledgment is reflected, for example, in the New York Times’ landmark “1619 Project” and in the resources of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History.

Accordingly, schools across the country are working to incorporate anti-racist practices into teaching and learning. As the scholar Ibram X. Kendi has expressed, “[a]n antiracist idea is any idea that suggests the racial groups are equals in all their apparent differences—that there is nothing right or wrong with any racial group. Antiracist ideas argue that racist policies are the cause of racial inequities.”It is critical that the teaching of American history and civics creates learning experiences that validate and reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students.

Under the second priority, the DOE wants to build information literacy skills in students when evaluating online information. While this priority sounds like a good idea, the DOE bases it on students reporting that they do not get information from traditional news organizations.

With trust in corporate TV media outlets at an all-time low and lower in the U.S. than in 46 other countries, the idea that teens are getting their news outside of these channels is not surprising. From Russian collusion to the lab-leak theory for COVID-19, these outlets have peddled more misinformation than most YouTubers. This drive for “information literacy” seems to encourage teaching children to attack the source rather than critically evaluate the information. It also seems aimed at turning them into activists, as seen in a quote pulled from the American Federation of Teachers:

Teaching civics should be more than just understanding the structures and functions of government. In an era of “fake news” and Internet conspiracy theories, it is crucial that students learn how to gather and evaluate sources of information, and then use evidence from that information to develop and support their ideas and advocacy positions.

On Friday, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona opened the invitation to apply for grants under this program. The two priorities are invitational and will not lead to grants that contain them receiving preference. More importantly, the references to preferred ideas and curriculum are gone . . .

According to Parents Defending Education:

According to the federal register, 33,967 comments on the proposed grants were submitted to the Department of Education; the vast majority expressed concern over the Biden administration’s support for making racism and slavery the centerpiece of American history. PDE played a significant role in helping parents and other stakeholders express their concerns — 11,371 comments, or over 33 percent of the total — received by the Education Department were facilitated by our comment portal.

This outcome is good news on two fronts. First, opposition to new regulations proposed by the sprawling bureaucracy can succeed through coordinated efforts with high participation during the comment period. Conservatives should work to replicate this kind of action over the next three years on issues that have broad appeal. There are whispers the DOE will snap back to the horrid Title IX kangaroo courts that trample all over the due process rights of college students accused of sexual assault. Americans should take up a similar campaign to comment when the changes are proposed.

Next, the DOE reinforced local decision-making where parents will still have a say in the curriculum their schools adopt. This news should underscore the importance of grassroots action at the local level, which many of us have ignored for too long. Putting forth candidates for local elections and petitioning local governments needs to become a higher priority. The insertion of critical theories will continue without parents remaining vigilant and involved.

Our prayers are bring answered! How are you encouraged by this? Let us know in the comments below!

Heavenly Father,

We, your sons and daughters, plead to you, un the name of Jesus Christ, that you bring more and more scores of righteous moms and dads and concerned citizens that get powerfully involved in safeguarding our Godly values in all schools in the USA. That they get involved in fighting and opposing and defeating any communist CRT gargabe that only divides our nation with the ends to install a communist globalistic government. It will NOT happen because you are with us and we are faithful Christ believers.

Arise more and more people in holy indignation in the USA against the communist world order. Arm people I the spiritual and the physical, ready to give their lives for what is holy in the USA! And the world.

Help us raise holy leaders at all levels in the land Lord.

We pray for our enemies. We want them to repent for their evils, but we also deliver those you know are beyond salvation due to their wickedness, with the last hope that their repent from their satanic agenda.

We will conquer. No. Better said, we have already defeated evil I. The land and in the spiritual realm because Jesus Christ already DEFEATED Satan and his followers in the Cross!

Repent evildoers! Our Lord is coming soon for his true church. You will BE LEFT to face the Great Tribulation and Great Wrath of our Heavenly Father if you don’t repent and accept our Lord as your Savior and Lord.

We are defeated. We will DEFEAT this CRT in our schools and society. The Lord is with us.

The evil forced will be allowed some short victories for a short time. Their power will be partial and fragmented and divided. The righteous will be allowed to have huge victories over them. There will be a balance of power between good and evil…until the Lord comes for his TRUE church and takes to Heaven with Him.

Satan and his evil followers will be left out soon to face the Great Tribulation and the Great Wrath of our Father upon them and Satan’s kingdom.

Repent evildoers or perish under the mighty Sword of our Lord!

Hallelujah!
As a teacher, I have been praying against CRT. I actually attended a strange “diversity” training early this summer and came home concerned. It was not officially CRT, but it implied that EVERYONE is racist. It sugar-coated things, but still, at times what I listened to made me uncomfortable enough to come home and do some research.
I think the training was a preliminary concept to the real CRT? Perhaps to see how it may be accepted? I know God called me to teach, but I had decided I could not conform if CRT was to become a part of my district’s curriculum. I knew I had to just put it in The Lord’s hands.
I am so glad to read this! I sent emails to my senators and legislatures about my opposition to CRT. My husband and I have been contacting our leadership quite often since the new administration moved in. I feel others are too! I believe contacting our leadership reminds them of whom they are supposed to be working for. We the people!
I am proud of the Patriots that are making themselves more aware of government policies. It is so important to know what is happening and many are now actually standing up for God and country! I will continue to pray for true godly changes in leadership everywhere. Believing this will enable us to move into a new righteous reign within our government if we refuse to back down.
There are so many exciting possibilities that appear to be emerging. As all the darkness has been coming to light, it must not be in vain! I believe God works through His people- and wants us to pray for our country and then actually do something about it for a change!
Now that we know better, and are actively participating in politics like never before-I have great hope that we are entering into a greater America- at such a time as this! We just have to keep standing!
God Bless everyone that not only knows freedom is worth fighting for but is willing to do something about it!
One happy teacher-
