PragerU, a popular conservative group whose videos have garnered billions of views since its founding in 2011, announced the launch of its educational resources for children.
In an announcement emailed to supporters on Monday, Prager said nearly 10,000 educators and parents have already joined PragerU Resources for Educators and Parents.
“Our schools are teaching that America is not a land of plenty, but a nation of systemic oppression and inequality. Students learn half-truths or lies to make them feel ashamed of being American,” the website states.
“PragerU Resources for Educators & Parents is a community committed to teaching our youth about America’s blessings and limitless opportunities.”
PREP vows to provide “pro-America resources and educational content for students grades K-12,” an online discussion forum for families, virtual events for parents and their children, a quarterly newsletter, and a digital kids’ magazine.
Jill Simonian, PragerU’s director of outreach for PREP, said in a statement that the program has already “received an overwhelmingly positive response from parents, guardians and teachers around the country.”
“Contrary to what the media would have us believe, most parents don’t want our children to have radical leftist rhetoric and doctrine jammed down their throats,” Simonian added.
“Rather, we want our children to love the values America was founded on, be freethinkers and take ownership of their ideas and actions. Our new shows and resources encourage critical thinking instead of stunting it.”
In 2019, the longstanding debate over what narrative on United States history should dominate public schools and popular culture heated up with the release of The New York Times’ “1619 Project.”
