Stay Connected to Education America

Join Rebekah & Marc as they ask the right questions and interact with local and national political and educational issues. Through Education America, we’ll unpack the events and ideas that surround us, from critical race theory to Common Core and how the breakdown of moral standards is leading to the breakdown of academic prowess. We’ll work together toward answers to questions…even questions that people aren’t yet asking.

We’re excited to launch the podcast and radio program Education America.

The battle for the hearts and minds of our young people — and for our nation — is implicational on every level. It demands not that we return to something old, but rather that we return to something true. And so Education America is here to engage in that discussion…and in that fight…for our young people and for our nation.
