Education

A
BIBLE AND A NEWSPAPER IN EVERY HOUSE, A GOOD SCHOOL IN EVERY DISTRICT — ALL STUDIED AND APPRECIATED AS THEY MERIT — ARE THE PRINCIPAL SUPPORT OF VIRTUE, MORALITY, AND CIVIL LIBERTY. – Benjamin Franklin

The American educational system is under siege. The secular progressive agenda, including Common Core, is succeeding in “dumbing down” schoolchildren through indoctrination and replacing truth and objectivity with destructive moral relativism. Meanwhile, students and teachers of faith face a hostile environment that strips away their First Amendment freedoms. FCDF litigates to protect students’ and educators’ constitutional rights and defend parents who seek a safe and valuable education for their children.

Islamic Indoctrination in San Diego Unified School District

In April 2017, FCDF filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District and its Board of Directors challenging the district’s implementation of an “anti-Islamophobia” initiative. The program would provide special accommodations to Muslim students and allow a controversial, terror-linked Islamist advocacy group full access to indoctrination students and distribute religious propaganda.
