MARXISM 101 is part of the chapter’s “2022-2023 School Year for Parents” initiative, focusing on one critical issue in our schools per month. The April focus begins to tie all ideologies studied in previous months together in a presentation on the history of Marxism in Education, and especially, what it looks like in American education today.

In previous months MFL-WC has studied Critical Race Theory (CRT), Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Gender Ideology, Restorative Justice, Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), and graphic sexual material (“Porn”) in school libraries. MARXISM 101 will show attendees how all of these issues, including the controversial Wit & Wisdom K-5 English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum, underpin Marxist pedagogy in our Tennessee classrooms, to kids as young as five years old.

Two keynote speakers will illuminate this issue for us: Xi Van Fleet, who survived Marxist education and indoctrination by Mao Zedong in the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and Dr. James Lindsay, expert on Marxist ideology and author of “Race Marxism” and “The Marxification of Education.
