Oklahoma State Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters is continuing his attack on public schools. Walters recently announced a “partnership” with PragerU Kids, a nonprofit organization known for spreading misinformation. Please take a moment to tell the State Department of Education that this will greatly damage Oklahoma public schools!
PragerU’s founder, Dennis Prager, has admitted that PragerU’s ideologically driven propaganda videos are a form of “indoctrination.” These videos teach such demonstrably false claims such as the gender wage gap is a myth, they downplay the severity of slavery in the United States, and regularly rail against immigrants and feminism. PragerU has even featured a video delivered by disgraced former law Professor John Eastman, who claimed that the “Founding Fathers never intended for church and state to be completely separate.” Make no mistake — Oklahoma students will be robbed of an education that promotes free thinking and inquiry. Don’t let Oklahoma students be subjected to dangerous extremism. Let Walters know that PragerU should stay out of schools!
We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button that can be customized to your liking. We additionally encourage parents to write to their local newspaper to urge school boards not to allow their students to be exposed to this dangerous misinformation campaign.
