There is no denying the fact that the Left has coopted our institutions of education and manipulated them into a tool to advance their radical ideology. From curricula that teach students that America is racist and maleficent, to administrators that prioritize Drag Queen Story Hour over the fundamentals—reading, writing, and math—progressives have destroyed our education system and turned kids into ‘haters of America’.

This is certainly not a status quo we want to conserve. What, then, is the conservative movement to do?

Fox News Host Pete Hegseth joins Kevin to discuss the modern-day battlefield that is our education system, how we got here, and solutions that can change the trajectory of education for generations to come.

Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation.

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
