MASSIVE WIN: Hillsdale College to Open 50 ‘Anti-Woke’ Charter Schools to Battle Misinformation and Promote the Positives of Being an American

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, a Republican, has invited the private conservative college, Hillsdale College, to open 50 charter schools who will have anti-woke curriculum and teach students the positives of America.

The New York Times reported the Michigan based college could open the schools using public funds, including $32 million set aside for charter facilities.

Hillsdale College, which has close ties with former President Donald Trump, developed the ‘1776 Curriculum’ and is eager to add to its network of charter schools with the curriculum that focus on ‘the centrality of the Western tradition.

That famous curriculum was formed as a counterweight to the New York Times setting up a heavily criticized ‘1619 Project’ where the formation of the United States is centered around the slaves perspective of the country.

The college’s ‘1776 Curriculum’ is currently being used in the two dozen member schools in about 13 states, as well as several dozen more across the country, per its website. 

It comes as battles continue to rage across the US about what is being taught in public schools. Many parents have been outraged by the push towards divisive ‘equity’ lessons based on the teachings of critical race theory, which opponents say is divisive, and teaches white children that they are ‘oppressors.’

Florida has also enacted the Parental Rights in Education Bill – the so-called ‘Don’t say gay’ bill, in response to reports of teachers encouraging children confused about their gender identity to hide it from their parents, and even move them towards medical treatment given to transgender people.

Hillsdale has been criticized for its curriculum as it takes a heavily conservatives stance, not only on America’s greatness but spends time devaluing certain liberal perspectives such as global warming.

Hillsdale is far from alone. For three decades, conservatives have been building an alternative K-12 educational universe rooted in classical education. The parallel track is taking off as families flee public school systems’ pandemic mandates, leftist political activism and resistance to parental input.

“I think we are on the very precipice of a massive disruption in K-12, and the classical renewal movement is going to be on the receiving end with a lot of these families. It already is,” said Jeremy Wayne Tate, CEO of the Classical Learning Test, which offers classically based standardized exams.
