Kirk Cameron Slams America's Public Schools for Teaching Sexualization of Young Children

Actor and producer Kirk Cameron is launching fresh criticism against America's public schools, saying they've become incubators for far-left progressive agendas, including critical race theory, gender ideology and Nikole Hannah-Jones' 1619 Project.

"The problem is that public school systems have become so bad. It's sad to say they're doing more for grooming, for sexual chaos and the progressive Left than any real educating about the things that most of us want to teach our kids," he told Fox News in a recent interview.

The solution to the problem, Cameron told the outlet, is for parents to take the lead on their children's education and teach them at home.

As an example, the actor also pointed to his new documentary The Homeschool Awakening, written and directed by Caleb Price. The film highlights 17 homeschooling families sharing how they used to perceive homeschooling and how that perception has changed.

Cameron and his wife, Chelsea, are also featured in the documentary, talking about their experiences with their six children.

"Homeschool was not on our radar screen because we had these misconceptions and stereotypes like so many people do," Cameron said. "Like, you know, 'That's for like Quakers and the Amish, and how could you possibly teach your kids enough so that they get into college? What about socialization?'he said. But the actor explained that he learned his children were able to socialize with people of all ages. He also realized the world was his children's classroom.

As CBN News reported last month, Cameron said in an Instagram post that he's worked on the film for over two years because he cares about the future of America's children and the country as a whole.

"Since the pandemic, we've been made grossly aware of the inaccurate and the immoral things that the public school system has been teaching our children and our grandchildren," he explained. "It's up to us as parents to cultivate the hearts and minds and souls of our children toward what is good, what is right, beautiful and true. The public school system, unfortunately, has not been working with us but actively working against us. In my opinion, the public school system has become public enemy No. 1."

He noted that the film will advise parents on the educational options they have for their children.

"We need to take back the education of our children because whoever controls the textbooks controls the future," Cameron explained. "Whoever is shaping the hearts and minds and souls of our children will determine whether or not we live in a free country. We have freedom of speech, economic freedom, educational and political freedom ... and religious freedom."

The actor told Fox News he thinks there are many excellent teachers in the country, but he said the school system is holding them back from being a "light in the darkness, and to pass on the kinds of values and virtues that made this the freest, strongest, most prosperous nation in the whole world."

The Homeschool Awakening debuts in movie theaters on June 13 and 14 only. Tickets can be purchased online here and at participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theaters, click here.
