Education First Alliance, a North Carolina education advocacy group, launched the watchdog site Schoolhouse Shock on Monday, April 19, to help whistleblowers expose radicalism in K-12 schools.

Parents can anonymously upload in the site videos, photos and documents from their child’s class to catalog critical race theory-based lessons being taught in schools.
“Our new statewide whistleblower program, Schoolhouse Shock, will add to our toolbox in the fight against the onslaught of racially inflammatory and sexualized curriculums that children are being immersed in all over North Carolina,” Sloan Rachmuth, Education First Alliance president, said in a statement.
Rachmuth, an investigative reporter, established Education First Alliance in January. The nonprofit group opposes the use of anti-American ideologies like critical race theory and antiracism in classrooms and pushes “for the equality of dignity and of opportunity for all K-12 students.” (Related: Cornell law professor launches database that lists universities teaching “racist” critical race theory.)
“Asking children to solve, or suffer the punishment for, previous generations’ injustices is not only irresponsible and ineffective, it is a continuance of that same injustice,” the group’s mission statement reads.
In its blog, Education First Alliance charted the rise of critical race theory in education; reported the nine-week-long “Culturally Responsive Teaching” training that instructed teachers to “disrupt” the education system with critical race theory and documented a series of tweets in which James Ford – a North Carolina state education board member handpicked by Democratic Governor Roy Cooper – lauded anti-Semitic preacher Jeremiah Wright.
The organization uncovered documents that instructed North Carolina public school teachers to ask students about their sexual orientations and more. It revealed that middle school students in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district were asked about their sexual preferences. In addition, it also revealed that sixth-graders at Innovation Academy, a school south of Raleigh, were given a survey that asked students to count the number of genders and sexual orientations they believe exist, as well as whether they believe the gay community deserves rights.
NC Board of Education adopts curriculum standards built around critical race theory
The Education First Alliance has called out issues stemming from the radical curriculum standards adopted by the North Carolina Board of Education in February that are built around critical race theory. This theory posits that American economic and political systems are inherently racist.
North Carolina’s education board began revising the state’s K-12 history curriculum in 2019. Early drafts of the standards called for teaching students as young as kindergarten terms like “systemic racism” and “gender identity.”
Under the standards passed in February, second graders will learn how various indigenous, religious, gender and racial groups advocate for freedom and equality, while students in fourth grade will learn how revolution, reform and resistance shaped North Carolina. Meanwhile, high school American history students will learn to compare how some groups in American society have benefited from economic policies while other groups have been systematically denied the same benefits.
Critics, including North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson, say the politically charged standards undermine students’ education.
“To say that this is a racist nation – that is not true,” said Robinson, the first black lieutenant governor in North Carolina. “And when we write standards that point to that direction in any way, we are doing our students a disservice.”
Groups formed to combat indoctrination and radicalism in classrooms
Robinson created the Fairness and Accountability in the Classroom for Teachers and Students (F.A.C.T.S.) task force last month to give students, teachers and parents a “voice to speak out about cases of bias, inappropriate material or indoctrination they see or experience in public schools.”
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Robinson said F.A.C.T.S. would be made up of education professionals.
There’s also a national, nonpartisan organization launched last month to provide resources – including a tip-line and instructions for filing public records requests – to parents who want to protect their child’s education from “activists promoting harmful agendas.”
The Parents Defending Education (PDE) trains parents how to put schools and officials on the spot, gain media attention, get involved with school boards and other oversight bodies and make sure the school knows there will be consequences for indoctrination and radicalism in classrooms.
It is led by founder Nicole Neily and journalist Asra Nomani, who previously wrote for the Wall Street Journal.
“PDE empowers parents by educating them on their children’s rights in the classrooms, how to document abuses and extremism and how they can begin exercising influence and oversight with their school,” the nonprofit membership organization said in a press release.
Critical race theory training activities in federal agencies
Critical race theory has also penetrated federal agencies. In September last year, the Trump administration sent out a memo calling on federal agencies to cease funding any staff training activities that focused on white privilege and critical race theory. (Related: Trump seeks to end “critical race theory” brainwashing in federal agencies.)
The memo stated: “All agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on ‘critical race theory,’ ‘white privilege,’ or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the U.S. is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.”
According to the memo, such training sessions amount to “un-American propaganda.” It added that this kind of training perpetuates misguided views and contributes to racial division.

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report and ACM 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 are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
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. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
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.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
