On this episode, Andrew and Beth speak with author and education expert Lance Izumi about his new book, The Great Parent Revolt, which highlights the stories of ordinary people that stood up to the against critical race theory and woke indoctrination in their children’s schools. We discuss how these new American heroes come from all walks of life, geographically, politically and socioeconomically. Lance talks about how many of the parents he profiles share one thing in common – an immigrant story. Lance also shares the story of a student in California who describes what political indoctrination is like from the student’s prospective.

He is the former two-term president of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, the largest system of higher education in the nation, and co-author of The Great Parent Revolt: How Parents and Grassroots Leaders Are Fighting Critical Race Theory in America’s Schools.
