Protect Honesty in Education

The nation faces a growing campaign to prohibit and censor honesty in education.

 

 

This is an attempt to hide difficult truths and realities about our past and present, and deny students their voice and identity. Many professional educators are being labeled Marxist, and their schools "indoctrination centers" for teaching complete accounts of history, helping students understand complex social issues, and embracing each child's individuality.

WHAT IS

HONESTY IN EDUCATION?

It is the complete presentation and critical examination of academic content that is grounded in facts, research, and credible sources. It reflects diverse perspectives, identities, and experiences. It invites open dialogue and debate, and appreciation of the complexity of issues. This approach helps to develop lifelong learners who are able to navigate our changing world, and help advance society.
