In a post-COVID era, parents are more aware of the Left’s influence over academia. Their demand is loud and clear: quality, transparency, respect, and choice.

The Left’s extreme ideologies have taken root in school policies, practices, and curricula. What does the future hold for education in America and how can the conservative movement fight back against education indoctrination?

This National School Choice Week, Dr. Keri Ingraham joins the show to discuss the importance of breaking the K-12 education monopoly, the necessity of school choice, and equity in education.

A former classroom teacher, coach, and school administrator, Dr. Keri Ingraham currently serves as Fellow and Director of the Discovery Institute’s American Center for Transforming Education where she focuses much of her work on educational freedom and parent empowerment.


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.
