By Wayne Hoffman
May 1, 2021
Idaho education officials are being dishonest when they say there’s no evidence of leftist indoctrination in our public schools and universities. They’re also being dishonest when they claim that the newly-signed House Bill 377 prevents critical race theory from being taught.  The legislation is certainly helpful. It says that students can no longer be compelled […]
