In speech, Barr pushes back against ‘secular progressive’ takeover of America’s public education system

Former Attorney General Bill Barr has gone public with a stark warning for those who are concerned about how America’s public education system is preparing the next generation for the future ahead.

In a speech Thursday, Barr warned of a progressive, secular takeover of the nation’s public schools and said Americans may soon be forced to contend with the reality that the ideologies being preached in these taxpayer-funded institutions don’t align with the values the country was founded on.

“We’re rapidly approaching the point, if we already haven’t reached the point, at which the heavy-handed enforcement of secular progressive orthodoxy through government-run schools is totally incompatible with traditional Christianity and other major religious traditions in our country,” Barr said, according to the Washington Examiner.

“I think we have to confront the reality that it may no longer be fair, practical, or even constitutional to provide publicly funded education solely through the vehicle of state-operated schools,” the former attorney general added.

“Trying to separate them”

According to the Examiner, Barr also suggested Thursday that it’s impossible to separate religion and religious values from the educational curriculum.

“They’re inherently bound together,” he remarked. “The whole idea of trying to separate them is actually a fallacy.”

The former AG was said to have been met with thunderous applause as he insisted that education is about more than just math skills or career preparation, but also “about the big questions.”

“Education is more than just balancing your checkbook or vocational training. It’s really about — at the end of the day, it’s about the big questions,” Barr opined, as the Examiner reported.

Upholding the law

Barr’s comments came as he was accepting this year’s Edwin Meese III Award from the Alliance Defending Freedom, which the Examiner described as a “religious liberty advocacy firm.”

According to the Republican National Lawyers Association, the award “is bestowed to an individual who has upheld the rule of law in the face of adverse political challenges.”

It is named for Ed Meese, a former aide to Ronald Reagan and longtime conservative legal activist who also served as attorney general in the 1980s, according to The New Yorker.

Meese was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-President Donald Trump in an October 2019 ceremony and is said to be a staunch supporter of the former commander-in-chief.

    The former AG Barr is totally right when he is talking about education. The left democratic party wants to make our kids dumb and do their best to keep them dumb. The people of this country really need to stop the democratic party from do this to our kids.
