Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) recently met with his constituents to talk about the problems in children’s education. During a recent roundtable with parents on Friday, the Wisconsin lawmaker said he wanted to hear about the ideas or theories being taught that are of concern.
A major topic discussed was the response to COVID-19 and what was being taught online with parents raising worries that their children will fall behind. Critical race theory and other ideological ideas being taught in schools has been a major issue for parents across the country and Johnson said the only way to combat that is for parents to find their voice.
Attendees said it was good to see the show of support not only from Johnson, but from like-minded parents. They said it’s time to take action like their kids’ lives depend on it.
