Mississippi governor proposes $3M ‘Patriotic Education Fund’ to combat ‘indoctrination’ from ‘far-Left socialist teachings’

Students in the state of Mississippi will be taught “the American Way” if Gov. Tate Reeves gets his way.

The Republican included a call for $3 million to create a “Patriotic Education Fund” that will “combat the dramatic shift in education” toward what Reeves called a “revisionist history” of the United States.

“Across the country, young children have suffered from indoctrination in far-left socialist teachings that emphasize America’s shortcomings over the exceptional achievements of this country,” Reeves wrote in a budget plan for the upcoming year released Monday. “Revisionist history has aimed to tear down American institutions, and it is poisoning a generation. Capitalism, democracy, and other uniquely American values have been the victims of a targeted campaign from foreign and domestic influence—aiming to destroy the pillars of our society.”

Reeves called the U.S. the “greatest country in the history of the world” before proposing a $3 million investment in

The United States is the greatest country in the history of the world. No other nation has done more for its citizens or to advance freedom and prosperity across the globe. We need to combat the dramatic shift in education,” Reeves wrote in his proposal.

The move is the latest by a member of the GOP to press for education that would instruct students

Epic Charter Schools fallout: Governor says he will work with lawmakers who want audit of Oklahoma Department of Education | Education

“If the state auditor is correct in her assessment that the state Department of Education repeatedly neglected its responsibility to ensure compliance with OCAS (Oklahoma Cost Accounting System) and other required reports, one must ask if this dereliction of duty was confined solely to Epic Charter Schools or if it permeates throughout our public education system,” says a statement released by the lawmakers.

“If SDE did in fact routinely fail to perform its regulatory duties, this could result in the discovery of hundreds of millions of dollars of misused funds.”

Asked to respond, Carrie Burkhart, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education, said:

“We would be happy to visit with any legislator who would want to better understand the audit findings and Epic’s tactics. We are always open to improvement, but we believe this group’s concerns may stem from a misunderstanding of what has occurred as it relates to the
