"In recent years, we have been hearing more and more about the culture war in the United States, which is becoming increasingly violent, dividing society. These battles are breaking out of the spheres dominated by politics and are destroying areas where they would otherwise have no place: classrooms in primary and secondary education are no exception. The American educator's work is intended to highlight this phenomenon, drawing readers' attention to the indoctrination work often carried out in schools, without the knowledge and consent of parents, to the detriment of the teaching of traditional knowledge and skills, in which teachers seek to indoctrinate children with left-wing ideas and to serve political ends. And those who disagree or dissent prefer not to voice their reservations for fear of the consequences: bad grades, humiliation and the impossibility of progressing in their studies. But in the United States, where freedom of speech has been constitutionally protected since the beginning, this should not necessarily be the case, says the author, who believes that there are many ways to curb the Left-Marxist-inspired ideas that are trickling down from universities to lower and lower levels of education. In the book, Ms. Snyder suggests a range of solutions for those who feel that this is not the education they would want for their children and who doubt that the current path will lead to them becoming capable, self-reliant, responsible and well-educated citizens."
