(LFC Comments: Do you see the trends in public education? Home schooling is looking better all the time. Would not be surprised if home schooling is outlawed, just as it is in Europe. The “European” secular/socialists appear to be “driving the wagon” at the Federal level while the average U.S. citizen is ignoring the obvious. Grant money always has strings attached to it to get you conform to the secular/socialist mindset. Make no mistake this is all agenda driven to divide and conquer.

Pay attention to what your schools and elected officials are doing
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WIFR) – LGBTQ history will be taught in Illinois public schools starting next year.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed HB 246 into law in August.
The bill takes effect on July 1, 2020. It aims to give schools a more inclusive history curriculum by including history on the contributions of LGBTQ people.
“It is my hope that educating students about the important roles LGBTQ individuals have played in our country will help them develop a deeper understanding of history and a more compassionate view of their peers,” said Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago), co-sponsor when the bill was proposed. “Schools also will provide positive reinforcement for LGBTQ students by highlighting the important contributions of other LGBTQ individuals.”
According to the bill’s language, textbooks purchased with grant funds must be non-discriminatory and “must include the roles and contributions of all people protected under the Illinois Human Rights Act.”
