Writer says conservatives must ‘destroy’ public education to save America

Many have argued that improving the school system is a crucial part of strengthening the country. However, one conservative columnist recently suggested a very different approach.

In an article published this weekend, Townhall contributor Derek Hunter argued that to save America, we must destroy public education. 


“Our schools are no longer institutions of learning, they are indoctrination centers,” Hunter wrote. “It’s not uncommon for young children to know more genders than they have classmates.”

“Kids can’t read, but they’re experts at using people’s preferred pronouns. And science, well, anyone who believes a man can give birth is not going to be the next Marie Curie,” he complained.

Hunter wrote that the COVID pandemic helped open the eyes of parents to just how bad schools have gotten in recent years.

He said they’ve become a place “where white kids are told they’re the problem and minority kids are told they’ll never succeed because the system was established for white kids.”

Fire them

The columnist then went on to propose a radical step, declaring, “Every teacher needs to be fired and invited to reapply for their jobs. Same with school administrators.”

Under his framework, “anyone with pronouns in their social media bios should not be rehired.” Another disqualifying characteristic would be having a video highlighted by the Twitter account LibsOfTiktok.

The account features videos posted by teachers who use their position to advocate for radical gender theory or racial segregation.

Starting local

“Most importantly, anyone who calls students ‘my kids’ or went into the profession for any reason other than educate children in the subject they teach needs to be invited to leave,” Hunter added. “The job is to teach, period. Do it or get the hell out.”

Still, he acknowledged that this is a tall order and it won’t be implemented “unless conservatives run for and win seats on school boards.”

Hunter noted that such often overlooked races are “where the frontline of this war for the future is right now.”
