Although the Supreme Court in 1925 ruled in Pierce v. Society of Teachers that parents have the right to direct the education of their children, it is only now that they are exercising it (“What the Push for Parents’ Rights Means for Schools,” Education Week, Mar. 8). I say it’s about time because what is taking place in too many schools is indoctrination.
Critical race theory as well as other controversial topics are replacing the 3Rs. As a result, students graduate high school with the belief that they are victims. That attitude will alienate prospective employers who rightly complain that young people are totally unprepared for the marketplace.
