Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) recently met with his constituents to talk about the problems in children’s education. During a recent roundtable with parents on Friday, the Wisconsin lawmaker said he wanted to hear about the ideas or theories being taught that are of concern.

A major topic discussed was the response to COVID-19 and what was being taught online with parents raising worries that their children will fall behind. Critical race theory and other ideological ideas being taught in schools has been a major issue for parents across the country and Johnson said the only way to combat that is for parents to find their voice.
