SPLC's Radical “Learning for Justice” Program



Year written


There is a rising trend of divisive identity politics -- often marketed as “social justice education” -- being taught to America’s school children. One of the organizations most responsible for this trend is the highly partisan and left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center and its Learning for Justice initiative. For the SPLC, the objective is not teaching “justice for all” but indoctrinating our nation’s children with disputed ideologies such as Critical Race Theory and Queer Theory. Due in part to the funding and efforts of the SPLC, these theories are increasingly being presented as fact in school curricula, professional development trainings for teachers, and even policies at the school board level.

Parents, teachers, school administrators, and concerned citizens will find the information in this resource useful as they work to safeguard our nation’s schools and children and get partisan politics out of the classroom.
