Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15

The American Education system is changing. We need to not only keep up with the changes but be pro-active in the changes.

With COVID-19, schools are rapidly changing the basic way they do their work. Some have become old-fashioned correspondence schools, with the vast majority of interaction happening by written mail. Others have tried to recreate the school setting online using digital tools like Zoom. Others are in-between, directing students to online tutoring and practice programs, and posting videos. Most people just want to get things back to normal.

But "Normal" is still not "NEUTRAL".

Under the guise of being values-neutral, state and federal officials have effectively established a state-sponsored ideology within public schools. They take sides on how schools must handle sensitive, values-dependent issues—from something as broad as the purpose of education to issues as granular and culturally charged as sex education, transgender bathrooms, and religion. On any one of these areas, how is it possible to take and teach a neutral position? Even attempting to merely “teach the controversy” still means taking a gatekeeping position in deciding which controversies should be taught—to the exclusion of others. It means dictating the extent to which different types of students should be accommodated in their personal, religious, and cultural differences. In outcome, none of this can be “neutral.”

After all, many communities directly experience the consequences of a state-run school system that is, for them, the opposite of ideologically neutral.
