Our public education system has been utterly captured by woke activists more interested in politics than knowledge. During the COVID pandemic, teachers’ unions, school boards, and education bureaucracies proved themselves openly hostile to the rights of parents and interests of students—and above any accountability to the taxpayers and families they serve.

Leftist educational officials advocate for rolling both radical gender ideology and critical race theory into curricula. Their ultimate goal is indoctrination, not education.

Meanwhile, American universities have not only turned on our country’s history and ideals. They have turned on the traditional idea of education itself.

How? Why? And what can Americans do about it? We’re taking all of it on. We’ll hear from University of Dallas President Jonathan Sanford, and Heritage Action for America Executive Director Jessica Anderson.

>>> The Critical Classroom


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.
