Destruction of a child’s love of learning while creating an academically ignorant population is a typical result of federal government overreach.

I already tell my daughter that everything she learns in school is BS and lies.
I tell her only math tells the truth, and does not lie.
I also tell her I don't give a **** about her grades, and that the grades mean nothing.
I tell her that the only, ONLY thing that matters is that she understand that her ability to be curious about the world is under attack in schools and she must preserve that nugget of curiousity at ALL COSTS including if it means she gets bad grades.
I tell her that anything she learns she will teach herself and the schools at best can only introduce her to concepts but do not really teach her anything.
I tell her to never ever trust what she learns in school that it is mostly lies. If she has a question she can come to me, and we will research it together.
I tell to focus on math only because math doesn't lie. Also music is good and that doesn't lie either.
I've told her this for years.
Surprisingly, she is one of the top students in her school.
