As your Senate representative to DC, we will protect the right of parents to educate their children, and not have them indoctrinated:
Rather than abandoning their passion for teaching, some educators are discovering that they can do what they love and avoid the bureaucracy and stress of a conventional classroom by starting their own microschools.
Microschools are modern twists on the quaint, one-room schoolhouse model, where small, multi-age groups of students learn together in more intimate educational settings, such as private homes, with individualized attention from adult educators and facilitators. Interest in microschools accelerated over the past year, as school shutdowns led parents to consider home-based “pandemic pods” to help their children learn in small, safe groups.
Some teachers were recruited to lead pods, while others set out to create their own learning communities and microschool models. These entrepreneurial educators are finding that they have many resources available to them to launch their own innovative schools.

Quality In Education
As parents are finding out, our public schools are infested with Marxists intent on indoctrinating our kids with CRT, gender dysphoria, porn, socialism and so on, instead of imbuing them with critical thinking skills and education that will properly prepare them for the future as functioning American citizens.
The critical race theory is just that, a destructive to social order theory and should be banned from the curriculum. It doesn’t end there, teachers, with the approval of school boards are trying to hide all the garbage they teach kids from their parents. And even when there are laws against teaching specific subjects, scofflaw teachers conspire to get around the law.
What’s aggravating to Iowa parents is that our State Legislators seem hapless in trying to prevent racism, pornography, queer theory, transgenderism from our schools and and school-age books in our libraries. Several bills have languished in our Sate Capitol for a year or longer because several so-called conservatives refuse to sign on to the bills. These cucks need to be identified and fired.
Marxist Infiltration of Education
So how bad is it? The video on the left is part 1 of a 3 part series. ‘Groomer Schools 1: The Long Cultural Marxist History of Sex Education‘. You can find Part 2 here, ‘Groomer Schools 2: Queer Futurity and the Sexual Abuse of Your Children‘ and Part 3 here ‘Groomer Schools 3: The Creation of an American Red Guard‘.
Through brand names like “comprehensive sex education” and one of its parent programs, “Social-Emotional Learning” (SEL), our government schools have been turned into Groomer Schools, and parents are beginning to notice. What many will not understand, however, is that this isn’t just a fluke of our weird and increasingly degenerate times. It is, in fact, a long-purposed Marxist project reaching back into the early 20th century.
In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, join James Lindsay as he explains the long history of the sexual grooming that has come into our schools through Critical Gender Theory and Queer Theory as they have crept into educational programs. If you want an explanation for how sexually explicit materials, gender ideology, pornography, and strippers have made their way into our government schools, including for young children, this is a must-hear.
This philosophy is what drives teachers to openly talk about and plot to disrupt the nuclear family and to break the psyche of innocent children to question their own identity (gender/sexual) and place in society (political activism). The Marxists know what they are doing by destabilizing the children to make them available to pedophiles and political indoctrination. This is intolerable and must be ended with extreme prejudice.
What are concerned parents to do? Many would love to find alternatives, but unable to do so. The common denominator is their family’s financial status. Imagine what flexibility they could have if the money we spend per student was portable?
The first step is to disband the Department of Education and unrestrain the free market in education by attaching federal monies for K-12 education to the parents to apply as they see best for their children. Aside from homeschooling, another attractive alternative is the “Pod” or “microschool” concept (see opening quote above).
If the parents could freely use $5,000 per child per year, the possibilities are endless.
There is also an over-emphasis on college education and a plethora of frivolous course studies that add nothing to advancing the quality of life. There is an axiom that when the government pays the bills, it also dictates what will be taught. As we have seen in the past, Common Core was an unmitigated disaster that was heavily promoted by Bill Gates and other anti-American globalists.
Ultimately, if we are serious about getting the federal government out of education, we must sever the financial strings that control education, including financial support for higher education. With the devolution of the on-campus, administratively top-heavy, college model; vocational training and online courses will fill the gaps and drastically lower the cost of higher education that people need to advance in the workplace.
Naturally, this implies a phase-out of all federal involvement in education, including funding. But I believe if the government leads the way, the states will follow suit and continue to permit and facilitate school choice at the state level.
