The film is the true story of April Few, the young mother of a preschooler, who takes us through her eye-opening experience of setting out to learn about government schools and her discovery of the alarming answers to questions such as:
· Are standardized tests being used for data collection?
· Is there a federal education scheme to control the nation’s economy?
· Why is the study of history so often anti-American and anti-Christian?
· Are children being taught to become political activists?
· What is the true aim of “comprehensive” sexuality education?
· How much transgender influence is there in government schools?
· What about Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project?
April meets the authors of some of the books that guide her journey as she develops a helpful timeline beginning with the age-old debate of whether government or families should direct the education of their children. In the end, April discovers her new mission—to educate parents of school-aged children about the schemes behind the workforce development model of education and expose harmful indoctrination in schools.
Credentialed researchers, professors, authors and highly experienced individuals with first-hand knowledge are interviewed by April in the film to shed light on the facts. Viewers are also informed of the trillions of dollars wasted on Federal education over the last four decades with nothing to show for it but stagnant test scores and declining student academic achievement, even before the pandemic.
An informed public is vital to ensuring educational excellence and the proposed film will ensure America’s families have access to the information they need to navigate and support their children’s education and empower them to act as effective advocates for change. The film will encourage national and local conversations about these critical issues for families and educators in order to advocate for solutions to what USPIE believes is the most troubling and challenging domestic policy issue facing America today: children being brainwashed in government schools with the very real potential to topple what is left of American freedom.
In the conclusion of this compelling film, viewers will be encouraged to connect with others to support efforts of a state chapter affiliated with USPIE. Currently, USPIE has 15 active state chapters with plans to establish a chapter in every state by 2024. This massive grassroots network will provide the necessary influence to achieve the goal of returning control of education to parents and local communities.
