Andrew and Beth speak with Dr. Elana Yaron Fishbein, founder of the organization, No Left Turn in Education. Elana tells her story of how she became an activist in the parents movement and founded a national “boots on the ground” grassroots organization. She talks about the issues that motivated her to begin speaking up about the crises of K-12 education, including critical race theory and the sexualization of children. She also shares her views on what has changed in the parents movement over the past several years and where she thinks the parents movement is going.

Dr. Fishbein is the Founder and President of the national grassroots movement No Left Turn in Education. She holds a Doctorate in Social Work from University of Pennsylvania, a Master’s (from Rutgers University) and Bachelor’s degrees (from Hebrew University in Jerusalem) in social work. She specialized in child welfare and child abuse and neglect. Her early training was in clinical social work and as she advanced in her career, she focused on planning, policy, management, and research. Dr. Fishbein grew up in Israel and served in the Israel Defense Forces, and is a proud mother of three.
