Since the 1900s,"progressives" have targeted education to further their socialist goals.
They have been wildly successful,and now we are seeing the results of that ALL across our society.
Even if all conservatives homeschooled their kids or sent them to private schools,we would not see the results of that for a couple of decades.
This is why the media is so soft on Comrade Obama,why so many young folks are homo-accepting/enabling,why "affirmative action" and Keynesian "economics" are still around,etc.
The young that were indoctrinated by the "progressives" have reached voting and working age,and their beliefs affect many segments of society.
