Schools that promote Critical Race Theory (CRT) as well as “gender insanity” will lose federal funds, President Donald Trump's revised website for his campaign states. Trump has also pledged to defend the rights of parents at the federal level.
“Protecting Parents' Rights” appears to be a top agenda item for the Trump 2024 campaign, as per the newly revamped website.
“President Donald J. Trump fought tirelessly to restore patriotic education to our schools and to expand charter schools and school choice for America's children,” the website says, noting Trump “secured an ongoing funding source to Historically Black Colleges and Universities and also protected freedom of speech on college campuses.”
“Now, Joe Biden and the radical left are using the public school system to push their perverse sexual, racial, and political material on our youth,” Trump's website states.
“President Trump believes that every parent in America must be empowered to opt out of this indoctrination, and send their child to the public, private, charter, religious, or home school of their choice,” the article adds in clarifying that Trump will also bar males from women’s sports and will work to prevent teachers from spreading gender-based extremism in the classroom.
“No teacher should be permitted to teach transgenderism to children without parental approval. Schools that advocate for radical civics, or gender-based insanity could be denied federal funds,” his campaign website continues.
“We will rescue our public schools from the Marxist teachers' unions and liberate our children from the corrupt education bureaucracy,” it says.
It's not the only time Trump has emphasized the importance of defending parental rights. When he announced his 2024 campaign in November, Trump declared that President Biden has a commitment to “indoctrinating our children” and stressed the importance of stopping the “gender insanity.”
“Joe Biden has also proven that he is committed to indoctrinating our children even using the Department of Justice against parents who object,” Trump stated during his speech.
“It's an awful thing. This is why it's so tragic the way things are going. When I'm in the White House, schools will stop promoting Critical Race Theory as they were.” Trump continued, threatening to cut off federal funds to schools that push these radical leftist ideas.
“We were starting to really get it right,” Trump declared. “We will not let men, as an example, participate in women's sports.”
“And you'll notice that it's extremely unfair to women, it's just really, extremely unfair. We will protect parent rights, and we will stand up for the family that is the central point in American family life,” Trump added, declaring his disbelief that parental rights need to be the subject of discussion in the present day.
“Who would ever think we should even mention this? Who even believes that this should be a topic to discuss. We need to protect parental rights. Do you believe this?” Trump asked.
