Confronting Evil: No Left Turn in Education Challenges the DOJ to Investigate and Prosecute Adults who Distribute Pornography in Schools

On January 5, 2022, No Left Turn in Education (NLTE) sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland imploring him to address a crisis of depravity in K-12 education. With the blessing and encouragement of teachers unions and school officials, many educators all across America are introducing obscene content to classrooms with children as young as five. In any other setting, an adult providing access to children of materials so explicit would properly be classified as an abuser, a harasser, or even a groomer of the minor for the purposes of sex.

In the letter, NLTE Founder and President Dr. Elana Fishbein calls on the Attorney General to “investigate and, if the facts warrant, to prosecute” individuals responsible for this exploitation of minors. Her letter provides examples of commonly used obscene literature that has infiltrated many classrooms across America. This material contains graphic and textual descriptions of masturbation, oral sex and pedophilia. Federal law is explicitly clear in the illegality of providing such content to minors and recommends fines and long imprisonment for offenders. 

For nearly two years, parents and concerned citizens have been confronting school boards across America to oppose curricula content that violates community standards and forces children to consume teaching that runs afoul of their faith-based principles. Nonetheless, last October the White House used the National School Board Association as a proxy to weaponize the Department of Justice and the FBI against these parents in America whose “crime” was their wish to know what their children are being taught at school. 

NLTE urges the DOJ to reverse course and instead heed the concerns of those very same parents and enforce federal constitutional and statutory law that has been enacted to protect children. Communities entrusted their children to educators who have abused that trust and have disregarded parental authority and religious freedom to advance their depraved agenda. They have done this purposefully and blatantly in many schools without parental consent and often in complete denial. 
“Child sexual exploitation has become rampant in our nation’s schools and poses a danger to the well-being of children cannot be understated. Sexualizing the young makes them vulnerable to predators and promotes values that deteriorate the underpinnings of our society. The Department of Justice should have ‘no higher priority’ than to rid our schools of depraved pornographic material and the individuals who are providing it to children!” Dr. Fishbein states emphatically.
