The video is long; if you don't have a lot of time, two starting points are at minute 15  and also minute 25.

The  only solution for now--to take your kids out of public schools, put them in private, charter, or "home schooling." Send them to Christian colleges, and pray.

Even that can't protect you. All of those options are also, to a large degree, controlled by the feds. Where do the teachers in charter schools come from? I most instances, same places as the public schools teachers. Some charter schools are even worse than the regular public schools.

After attending most of the Mesa school board meetings, my conclusion is that head count is priority.  They actually count every day and sent results to Dr. Cowan.  When the count is up, everyone is GITTY, but if is under the  Fed. guideline, everyone is SAD.  The school receives Fed. money for a UP count.  So, if parents were to pull their children out this would trigger urgency on the district.  Maybe this would open "some" people eyes.
