The rise of virtual classrooms as a result of the coronavirus lockdown has had many effects on the education system. The biggest is the shift towards homeschooling that, as we discussed last month, is one of the few silver linings with the draconian mandates across the country. Many parents are opening their eyes to the efficacy of homeschool and the indoctrination happening to children in public schools.
But there’s another effect that I had never considered until today. A thread from educator and commentator Matthew R. Kay captured by The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh exposed a “chief concern” for radical leftist teachers: Conservative parents. Since virtual classrooms will include the “risk” of parents hearing what their children are being taught, Kay expressed his concern over the broken barrier that normally separates those indoctrinating our children and their parents.

“So, this fall, virtual class discussions will have many potential spectators – parents, siblings, etc. – in the same room. We’ll never be quite sure who is overhearing the discourse. What does this do for our equity/inclusion work?
“How much have students depended on the (somewhat) secure barriers of our physical classrooms to encourage vulnerability? How many of us have installed some version of “what happens here stays here” to help this?
“While conversations about race are in my wheelhouse, and remain a concern in this no-walls environment – I am most intrigued by the damage that ‘helicopter/snowplow’ parents can do in honest conversations about gender/sexuality…
“And while “conservative” parents are my chief concern – I know that the damage can come from the left too. If we are engaged in the messy work of destabilizing a kids racism or homophobia or transphobia – how much do we want their classmates’ parents piling on?”
As homeschooling parents, we’ve long avoided exposing our children to the “discourse” they’re exposed to in public schools. But I know that blessing is not available to all which is why I continue to fight the extremism taught in public and even many private schools. They promote their one-sided worldview as the only acceptable mainstream thought. Normalizing sexual perversion, radical ideologies about race, and the anti-science concept of 57 genders are all commonplace in an education system dominated by hyper-leftists. This thread only reveals what many of us have known all along, that many teachers operate with a mindset that they are arbiters of truth and that their classrooms are sacred venues for their truth to spread.
In other words, they believe they can and should assist in raising our children to embrace their values, not just the scholastic education (questionable though it may be) that they provide.
This thread from a popular educator should terrify any conservative-minded parents who do not want their children indoctrinated. Add this to the long list of reasons parents should embrace homeschooling whenever possible.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
