The SPLC's Teaching Tolerance: What Parents, Teachers, and Administrators Need to KnowBy Family Research Council
Navigating our educational system is one of the biggest challenges facing families all across America. Will our children be safe and respected at school? Will our values be reinforced, or at least tolerated, or will they be undermined? These worries are compounded by the sense that America’s children are being educated away from values held dear by previous generations: an appreciation for hard work, self-control, civic duty, and love of country and neighbor.
Family Research Council has produced this resource for parents to help identify and monitor a particular threat to our values and religious freedom: divisive identity politics in the form of radical “social justice education.” The most flagrant purveyor of partisan ideas aimed at our nation’s school children is the highly partisan and left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
“Teaching Tolerance” is a special project run by the SPLC and is designed to infiltrate schools through radically progressive education resources. It’s no surprise that Christian values about marriage and family are in the crosshairs of Teaching Tolerance materials and resources. This brochure outlines the content within the Teaching Tolerance project and empowers parents to protect their children against indoctrination if these “resources” are discovered in your local school.
