South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem signed a pledge last week to restore “patriotic education” in schools while liberals shove Critical Race Theory into the classroom.

Critical Race Theory has been a top target for Republicans across the country when it comes to education. Noem signed on to a promise called “The 1776 Pledge to Save Our Schools.”

“Teaching our children & grandchildren to hate their own country & pitting them against one another on the basis of race or sex is shameful & must be stopped. I’m proud to be the 1st candidate in America to sign ‘The 1776 Pledge to Save Our Schools,” Noem wrote.

The website for the pledge says patriotic Americans have watched “in distress as entire generations of young people have been taught a false and one-sided narrative of American history.”

“Now, the slander of our history in the classroom is being paired with toxic, anti-American theories that divide our children by race, class and gender,” it says. “Every day, an entire generation of Americans is being further indoctrinated. We do not have decades to waste trying to persuade the radical Left that they are misguided. We have to defeat them now — politically, culturally, institutionally and financially.”
