When the COVID-19 communicable bankrupt schools to in-person acquirements in the bounce of 2020, parents beyond America began to see immediate what their kids were acquirements via Zoom affairs and added basic platforms. One of those parents, Jill Simonian of California, didn’t like what she saw.
Simonian absitively to allege out. She began announcement on amusing media and adopting acquaintance amid added parents about what she calls “
Last year, The Daily Signal interviewed Simonian about PragerU’s Assets for Educators and Parents. Since then, she’s helped barrage PragerU Kids, which offers alike added agreeable for ancestors and children—material abounding of them apparently aren’t seeing in school, including a new account children’s book series.
Read a agilely edited archetype beneath or accept to the account on “The Daily Signal Podcast.”
Rob Bluey: It’s abundant to accept you aback on “The Daily Signal Podcast.” You abutting my aide Virginia Allen and I aftermost year, as you were ablution this new agitative initiative. You’ve developed so abundant in aloof the accomplished year. Acquaint us about PragerU Kids—what it is, what your offerings are, and who some of the ambition audiences are that you’re aggravating to reach.
Jill Simonian: PragerU Kids is conceivably one of the best special—I’m aloof activity to allege personally—it’s one of the best appropriate endeavors that I’ve anytime been a allotment of, because it is kids content, videos, agenda magazines, books for actual adolescent learners that absolutely bless and advise our American ethics for kindergartners through 12th grade.
And it’s all chargeless content. It’s on our website, prageru.com/kids. You can acquisition all of the kids programming there.
But it’s altered in that our schools are about teaching kids to abhorrence America. And every distinct one of our videos wants to do the exact opposite. We appetite to bless America and we appetite our kids to be proud, to adulation and bless America, and of course, apprentice our history in an aloof way.
Bluey: Jill, if you could, this is absolutely claimed for you, if you don’t apperception administration the adventure with our audience. You yourself are a mom, you saw this immediate with your own kids, what was it that led you to this accurate role and the assignment that you’re accomplishing now?
Simonian: It’s absorbing because I’ve been with PragerU for about one year, and I did not go out attractive for this job to assignment with PragerU Kids or our associates affairs for parents and teachers. We alarm our associates affairs PREP, PragerU Assets for Educators and Parents. I did not go out attractive to assignment accurately with them, but the job affectionate of absolutely rather begin me …
And I shouldn’t laugh, I should be very, actual appreciative and accurate about this, but the job begin me because I started acceptable actual accidentally abrupt on amusing media, about how so abounding things in our educational arrangement are compromised central the classroom.
There are politicized curriculums and acquaint and perspectives that, unfortunately, a lot of educators anticipate is their albatross to acquaint our kids about or advise our kids or, as abounding as this chat is, indoctrinate our kids.
And I started seeing things immediate during the academy shutdowns, aback my two kids were on Zoom learning. And I started seeing array of a abridgement of accouterment lessons. And one of my daughter’s agents wasn’t adage the Pledge of Allegiance with the class, and there wasn’t a assignment about September 11th and what September 11th did to our country and how it about affiliated Americans actual abundant afterwards that tragedy.
But I started acquainted that things were absolutely slanted and it agitated me a lot as a parent. And it was very, also, ambagious at the aforementioned time because I appear from a ancestors of educators. My sister’s a accessible academy teacher. My mom was a accessible academy teacher. My grandma was a accessible academy teacher. I’ve consistently had account and acknowledgment for our accessible schools. And my kids at that time were in accessible school. And already I started acclamation assertive problems that I saw arising, I accomplished that the radicalization in our schools goes very, actual deep.
It was afresh that I started speaking up, decidedly on amusing media, adage that assertive things weren’t right, and the aggregation at PragerU begin me and said, “Hey, we apprehension that you feel this way about kids in education. How about you appear assignment with us in this new endeavor we’re aggravating to launch, PREP and PragerU Kids?”
And so I aloof said “yes,” and we’ve array of been the aftermost year alive and alive and alive very, actual adamantine as a nonprofit to actualize abbreviate videos and assets that parents and agents can use to advice brainwash our kids in a actual absolute way that unites us.
Bluey: And we are so activated that you concluded up there and the assignment that you are doing. For accepting such a baby aggregation that you do, you aftermath an absurd bulk of content. I appetite you to allotment with our admirers some of your admired offerings that PragerU Kids makes accessible to parents and educators for kids.
Simonian: So, we accept one, two, three, four, five, six, seven—I’m counting on my fingers appropriate now—eight, nine altered agreeable curve for kids, kindergarten through 12th grade.
We accept our “Otto’s Tales” storytime, which is a storytime series. And all of this, of course, is chargeless on our website. It’s a storytime alternation for kindergarten through additional graders cogent folk tales that consistently action a assignment about our American values, like adamantine work, integrity, adequation beneath God, all of those things that our kids, frankly, aren’t accepting in schools now.
It’s a storytime alternation that also, I should mention, is alleged “Otto’s Tales.” So if you chase PragerU, you apperceive that Otto is Dennis Prager’s bi-weekly that is beside him on all of his “Fireside Chats” that he does every week. And so our Otto is a costumed puppy, a appearance that I collaborate with that plays tricks on me.
We additionally accept a alternation alleged “Craftory,” “crafts” additional “history” equals “craftory,” area I do a DIY ability and additionally inject history acquaint about that craft. Like, for instance, there’s a “Craftory” about our American banderole and the history of our flag. And you apprentice fun facts about the history of our banderole while I am painting an American banderole on a account board. And kids can do it or aloof watch and learn.
We accept an activated alternation alleged “Leo & Layla,” that’s for third through fifth graders, with a brother and sister aggregation that biking aback in time to accommodated abstracts in history like Adam Smith, Neil Armstrong, we accept one advancing up about Desi Arnaz, all bodies who adulation America and admired our American dream.
We accept a history alternation alleged “TBH,” to be honest, that stands for “to be honest history,” for the earlier kids, teaching about altered times in history—the American Revolution, the French Revolution—in a actual fun, hip, abrupt way that sixth graders and up can absolutely chronicle to.
And afresh we additionally accept our books and agenda magazines. Our agenda magazines are free, but our books are centered on teaching accouchement the history of America through our holidays. And those books are alleged “Otto’s Tales.” And they’re for kindergarten through additional graders.
And they accouterment topics—Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, our American flag, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, all of these things that acclimated to be standardized, accomplished in schools that absolutely are compromised now with a abolitionist perspective. We accept offerings for every age group.
So it’s a lot of fun and we absolution new agreeable one to two times a week, and it’s a baby aggregation of about six of us.
Bluey: I can acquaint you accept a lot of fun putting it together. You can absolutely see that in the end product.
Now, let me ask you this, because you yourself told your story, but so abounding added moms and dads were activity that aforementioned annoyance over the advance of 2020 and 2021 aback schools shut down. They saw immediate what was absolutely actuality accomplished in the classroom. So I would apprehend that those are prime consumers of the actual you’re creating. But accept you additionally begin that teachers, whether in accessible or clandestine school, or alike homeschoolers, are additionally axis to it as maybe a chic or advice that they can allotment with their own kids?
Simonian: They are. And it’s absolutely abating because our PREP associates accumulation about acts as the basal abutment to accumulate our PragerU Kids shows chargeless online. So the PREP group, it’s a $25 donation, if you would like to abutment our kids shows and the affiliated assembly of our kids shows so that we can do added and added altered variety.
But in that PREP associates group, there are about 20,000 members. And about one-third of them are teachers, which is really, absolutely abundant and auspicious to know. Because it’s accessible now for parents to say, “Oh … the apprenticeship is ruining our accouchement and agents are compromised and agents are this.”
Please apperceive there are endless agents with candor who apperceive that the things that are accident in schools with analytical chase approach and gender character acquaint and systemic racism and all these things that are actuality shoved bottomward our children’s throat teaching them to abhorrence America—there are agents with candor who apperceive that it’s wrong, who apperceive that it is not truthful, and who appetite to absolutely displace their classrooms or their schools to advise kids what they should all be learning, what all of our kids should be learning.
So aback it comes to parents, we accept a breach of homeschool parents, parents who accept their kids in accessible school, and afresh additionally clandestine academy parents. And our assets and our shows and our magazines, they’re absolutely meant for parents to appoint and collaborate with our accouchement to supplement what’s accident in schools, to actual what’s accident in schools.
But it is auspicious because our agents were finding, aback they accelerate us notes, they’ll … buy one of our “Otto’s Tales” books, either through Amazon—you can acquisition our books on Amazon—but they’ll buy it and they’ll apprehend it in their kindergarten classroom, or they’ll use one of our agenda magazines as a added worksheet to go forth with a history assignment that they’re doing.
For instance, our actual aboriginal agenda annual was “Abigail Adams.” And a abecedary beatific us a agenda saying, “You apperceive what? I was accomplishing a assignment for fifth graders about the Founding Fathers. And beneath the awning of bookish freedom, I aloof anticipation it’d be absorbing to accord a little worksheet about Abigail Adams. Because aback do you anytime apprentice about Abigail Adams?”
I mean, she was such a amount in history. “Remember the ladies,” she told John. “Remember the ladies,” to admit women in history. And audition belief that agents are aggravating to really, absolutely butt and use our abstracts as they’re able in their classrooms, it’s really, absolutely abundant to apperceive because it is authoritative an appulse in that way.
Bluey: You’ve talked about the accent of administration this information, and that’s one of the things that’s so afflicted me consistently about PragerU, alike aloof the ‘5-Minute Videos’ that Dennis Prager fabricated so famous. How can parents, abreast from authoritative a banking donation, advice accomplish abiding that your assignment continues to be apparent by added and added parents beyond this country?
Simonian: We like to say, “Be brave.” And then—I’m bedlam and I’m authoritative ablaze of it, but it is actual serious, be brave. Because abounding times, and I allege from claimed acquaintance from a few years ago, as a conservative, it is alarming to allotment our angle for abhorrence of actuality judged, retaliated against, wrongfully labeled with able words that can abort reputations and careers that are wrongfully yielded at us.
It’s actual alarming to be adventurous and to allege up and about allege at a academy lath affair or alike accelerate the abecedary an email saying, “Hey, why were you administration this assignment on gender character aback this does not adjust with the accompaniment standards in our—”
It’s actual alarming to accurate an opinion, if you apperceive that the majority of who you’re acclamation does not accede with you, but at PragerU Kids, especially, we’re not aiming to be political.
We do not appetite to radicalize our children. We don’t appetite to indoctrinate our children. We don’t appetite to do annihilation that’s political. We alone appetite to present families and educators with assets that affiliate us as Americans, that accommodate the applicable cogent of who we are as Americans.
So aback we say, “Be brave, allege up,” alike admitting it ability feel alarming to say, “You apperceive what? I’m activity to apprehend this ‘Otto’s Tales’ about the history of the Pledge of Allegiance in my kid’s kindergarten class,” be brave, get the book, apprehend the book.
There’s annihilation amiss with cogent our accouchement the history of the Pledge of Allegiance or the civic canticle and account it in a story. There’s annihilation adverse about that. That’s not radicalized. That’s commodity every kindergartner should be able to apprentice and ask questions about.
So be adventurous if a academy lath affair is advancing up and your adolescent was aloof accustomed a analysis labeled as social-emotional learning, and that analysis happened to accept questions about their gender character and if they analyze as X, Y, Z, and how do they feel, and what is their ancestors home activity like, and allurement your third brand adolescent invasive questions that the ancestor was not acquainted was activity to be on that survey, be adventurous and go to the academy lath and say, “I, as a ancestor and the primary drillmaster of my children, why was this analysis delivered to my adolescent after my consent?”
We balloon that we parents accept rights. And so be brave, accept courage, do it with kindness, do it with joy. The byword “joyful fighters,” “happy warriors,” all of those phrases, we’ve heard those phrases a lot in our altitude now, but it is true. Be adventurous through that positivity because if we’re not, it’s not activity to get any better.
Bluey: Jill, finally, on that note, what gives you achievement and optimism about the future?
Simonian: I’m hopeful that added and added bodies are alive up to what is absolutely accident in schools. Personally speaking, I went to accessible schools my accomplished life. Like I said, my family, mother, sister, grandmother, all accessible academy teachers. I’ve consistently had a abysmal attention and amore for accessible academy teachers.
And I, myself … as a ancestor now of two elementary academy kids, I was consistently beneath this acceptance that what’s activity on in schools now is the aforementioned as what I accomplished and what I accomplished was absolutely great. And it was absolutely a positive, nonradicalized experience, absolutely frankly. But I’m hopeful that parents and agents are alive up, that there are actual invasive and amiss narratives, alienated narratives, radicalized narratives that are meant to absolutely demolish abandon and American exceptionalism.
I’m hopeful that parents are alive up, that these things are in actuality in our schools in absolute time through affiliated curriculum, through DEI—diversity, equity, and inclusion—programs that complete abundant on the inside, but aback you attending at the nitty gritty, they’re actual divisive. They’re actual racist. They’re not absolute for our kids. They’re actual damaging.
I’m hopeful that parents are alive up and acceptable beneath and beneath abashed to angle up to lies and are acceptable beneath abashed to vocalize what is and what is not OK in our schools.
Bluey: For far too long, Jill, I anticipate parents were aloof accepting of the actuality that maybe their own adventures in academy were accident today. When, in fact, the colleges of apprenticeship accept themselves been radicalized. And so the agents who are advancing into the classroom today are advancing in with a absolutely altered acquaintance than a bearing ago. So acknowledge you for the assignment you’re accomplishing at PragerU Kids. Acquaint our audience, again, how they can acquisition added advice and the abundant agreeable you’re creating.
